As principal photography continues on the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s next cosmic epic Eternals, a new set photo brings one of the eponymous superheroes down to Earth.
Marvel fans all over the world are about to learn a lot more about the Eternals – and the character of Sersi is one of the most pivotal in that lineup. Now some new set photos from Eternals are out, and they feature a first look at the movie’s MCU version of Sersi, who will be played by Captain Marvel‘s Gemma Chan. Needless to say, Marvel fans probably weren’t expecting the first photos of Sersi to look like this!
The photos depict a version of Sersi who is presumably living in present-day London. Sersi looks very bohemian chic in the outfit we see her in, which is fitting with the new-age vibe of modern urban hipsters, but somewhat surprising for an onscreen version of Sersi. In the comics, Sersi is a very confident and relatively edgy and arrogant person, who is also a bit of a seductress. At the same time, she’s also been a fashionista and highly-skilled dancer over the centuries; if you were to take a snapshot of what urban, bohemian, artistic types/fashionistas look like today, Sersi’s look definitely fits in line with that.
Principal photography began this past July, with the production and main cast officially announced at Comic-Con International in San Diego. Chan was announced as joining the film’s cast as Sersi last month at D23 Expo despite previously appearing as Minn-Erva in this year’s Captain Marvel.
Eternals arrives in theaters on Nov 6, 2020.
