Marvel Studios is trying to bring another group of relatively unknown superheroes to the forefront with the upcoming movie, Eternals. Directed by Academy Award winner Chloe Zhao, the film focuses on an ancient immortal race known as the Eternals, who helped humanity from the shadows before settling down into non-interference. Now, however, they are being called again to fight the Deviants.
Eternals will be released on November 5th, but the reviews are out. Well, the critics are feeling pretty divided about the movie overall. Now, the Rotten Tomato rating has ranked Eternals below Thor: The Dark World, which has a 66% on the site. Eternals sit at 63%, which is, well, still fresh, but maybe in a couple days you’ll need to throw out the tomatoes if you get our drift.
So is Eternals truly the worst Marvel movie? How are fans feeling about the low Rotten Tomatoes score?
“We want an MCU movie to be different from the formula!”

Some, however, are enjoying things being a little more atmospheric than normal.

Do you need a dictionary, friend?
And the positive reviews, to some, don’t feel all that positive.
The only #Eternals review you should trust is your own. Just saying 🤷♂️

Why is it a bad thing that it doesn’t “feel” like an MCU movie?
eternals reviews are terrible but endgame’s was nothing but praise so i truly cant be bothered to care about what they’re saying pic.twitter.com/zUoP3ORdLt

You are not wrong
Endgame was a mess. Can we say that now?
my biggest concern with Eternals getting mid reviews, is that Marvel won’t, or barely, take risks anymore with their films.
that is assuming they really gave Chloe Zhao full creative control, which I think they did.
