‘Marvel Owns Us for Life’ – The Star of Eternals Will Return To MCU

Eternals star Gemma Chan confirmed her return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Chan was asked how she thought about starring Eternals member Sersi in the new MCU film in an interview. “It was interesting. In Eternals, she starts out shy and then discovers her power as a leader. That was fun,” Chan said. When asked if she would ever reprise her Eternals role again, Chan responded with a cheeky answer: “Yes. Marvel owns us for life.”

It’s not the first time Chan has discussed Sersi’s development during the movie, referring to the character’s journey as a “coming of age” narrative as she matures into her destiny. “I mean, yes, Sersi is a superhero, but her powers are not kind of the most obvious or the-the flashiest,” Chan said during a November 2021 press conference. “She’s not, you know, the best fighter. But what she does have is empathy and a real affinity for humankind and the earth.

She continued, “That was one of the enjoyable things about the film, was going on that journey with that character. You know, it’s kind of her coming of age, even though she’s probably thousands of years old. But she learns to trust herself and to grow into her own power, really. And that was a really interesting thing to explore.”

The movie’s ending leaves the door open for the surviving Eternals to take their places in a future MCU episode, while Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has actually referred to Sersi as the de facto primary character of the Eternals. The Celestial Arishem abducts Sersi, Kingo, and Phastos in one half of the group, while Harry Styles’ Eros and Pip the Troll explore the heavens in the other. According to Chloé Zhao, the filmmaker, this is a dramatic contrast to the “bleak” finale she had intended for the titular Eternals.

I didn’t hate it, because I’m used to films that are more melancholy. But I don’t think it went down well with audiences,” Zhao said. “It used to end with everybody back on the ship, minds erased and just going on to another planet, like The Twilight Zone. I remember when it goes to black, everyone was like, ‘I don’t know what to do.’ And also, it’s the MCU, and you want to be excited for what’s next.”
