Eternals early screening reactions praise stunning visuals, compare MCU film to Snyder’s Justice League & more

Expectations are high for Marvel’s upcoming ensemble film, Eternals, as the film introduces a new group of superheroes in the MCU. Luckily, Monday night’s world premiere has already unleashed massive praises towards the star-studded cast as well as Oscar-winning director Chloe Zhao.

Marvel’s Eternals opened to a large audience on its world premiere at the iconic El Capitan theatre in Los Angeles. The 26th entry in Marvel cinematic universe is still yet to lift the official review embargo, set to end at 11 a.m. PT. October 24th. However, the embargo on social media reaction was lifted just after its premiere.

Reactions so far have been positive with most critics praising the film’s representation with a diverse cast including Marvel’s first deaf role played by Lauren Ridloff. Moreover, it seems the studio may have picked off some pages right from the DC cinematic Universe as entertainment journalist Scott Menzel states, “Eternals is Marvel’s version of Zack Snyder’s Justice League.”

Few other critics such as Forbes’ Scott Mendelson have also compared Eternals to the likes of “Marvel playing in the DCEU sandbox.” From the looks of it, it seems the comparison have risen due to similarities in Marvel’s attempt at introducing a new superhero team with a lengthy ensemble movie rather than choosing the typical route in establishing each with their own stand-alone titles.

Some critics have stuck their praises to Chloe Zhao for getting it right again, fresh off her Oscar win for Nomadland. Readers can check out their reactions below.

It must be noted with the James Gunn directed Guardians of the Galaxy; Marvel has succeeded in introducing new ensembles. But it can be argued that introducing Eternals is more complex due to more members among their group as well as establishing their storyline as characters that have remained in existence since the inception of MCU.

Eternals will hit theatres on November 5.
