Like most Marvel Cinematic Universe films, not much is known about it. Eternal or its characters. Of course, fans can turn to comic books for information, but no one really knows what will happen in the movie until they sit down to see it in theaters. Thankfully, Marvel has been extra generous lately and released some new 30-second trailers for Eternal. And in one video, fans can see more about Angelina Jolie’s character’s personality. To be more specific, he is definitely a better warrior than a midwife.
New ‘Eternal’ trailer gives us all about Angelina Jolie’s character
in new TV spots for EternalKumail Nanjiani’s character, Kingo, calls the group of superheroes “the greatest warriors the world has ever seen”. And as of this, the Infinite are a diverse group with insane superpowers. However, one of the characters is not great with children.
Later in the video, which you can watch below, Angelina Jolie’s character, Thena, sees Festos, played by Brian Tyree Henry, son. He asks her what her superpower is, so she shows it. Tabna reveals a spear and uses it to pierce an orange, and then she fruits it. The video cuts to Fastos saying “You know your childcare privileges have been completely revoked, right?”
Thena is an omnipotent, immortal being who can destroy an entire army. But if the new trailer is any indication she’ll make for a terrific babysitter.
What else do we know about Thena?
Angelina Jolie’s character, Thena, is described as “an elite warrior Eternal who can wield any weapon from cosmic energy, and has developed a close relationship with Gilgamesh over the centuries.” Gilgamesh is the strongest in the Eternals, and Don Lee plays him. Thena is also noted as a scholar with a brilliant intellect, which may have been influenced by his time with Gilgamesh.
Jolie recently discussed Eternal with total movie. When asked about her character and training for the role, Jolie said, “I was given ‘I could show the weapon in my hands’. [power]. A lot of my training was really fun, trying to figure out how to fight like that. “
In the comic books, Thena falls in love with Crow, a deity. Thena eventually became pregnant with the twins, but she transferred them inside a mortal woman, Ms. Ritter, who raised them as her own. So, the MCU movie might be a bit off that story, given that Thena doesn’t have kids in Eternal. And Crowe is about to appear in the film, so his love affair with Thena may play a central role.
