The Eternals have never interested me. Not the original run, not the Neil Gaiman version, and nothing in between. They're creations from a time when Kirby was running on fumes creatively, burnt out on the industry, trying to recapture past glory, and just not really my thing.

I will say the movie looks (as in design and cinematography) beautiful.

And without getting spoilery, I will say I'm a bit confused about reports/leaks on this. Word is Marvel thinks they've got something groundbreaking here that's substantially different then their usual stuff. Like reports are Feige and Co. are super high on what Chloe Zhao has done and are talking it up big internally as a giant leap forward.

But then a couple of months ago some 100% confirmed to be accurate reports from test screenings came out and seemed to indicate something that sounds much more mundane and bog standard MCU. Almost phase 1 sounding at times.

Granted, there have apparently been some substantial reshoots after those test screenings and there's a very real chance the movie we get is substantially improved upon what was tested back then, but what was reported didn't exactly wow me as a basis to build on.

Wasn't Iron Man c tier before the movies?
Pre-MCU Marvel was all b tier and below except for the X-Men and Spider-Man.

The Avengers were c tier. All of them, both individually, and as a group.

As a kid, I didn't like the Eternals, or Shang-Chi, or Blade, but I didn't like the Guardians of the Galaxy either and those movies were great. I'll give the new stuff a chance.

The existing Blade movies were great. I don't know how they can do that in a Disney environment, but I look forward to finding out.

I didn't like the 3rd Blade movie but the other two were fantastic.

i always thought so
was kinda surprised that he was the horse marvel rode to the MCU, but i was thinking about that with Sun's post
if the Eternals are kinda meh, then there's lots of growth potential there

at first i thought Sun was getting at a tech thing - using the new LED screen technology - but i'm pretty sure i heard Wanda used it so it's not new to Marvel
from the trailer, it looks like the Eternals is trying to tell a global story - maybe something like what Sense8 tried but never quite pulled off

Sort of.

A prequel starring a now dead character, a c-tier kung fu superhero, Immortals 2, and Spider Man!
Outside of Spiderman, most of the MCU characters were B or C tier...

I don't think this movie used The Volume (the giant LED screen/dome that renders CGI locations in real time to film on. They used it on The Mandalorian pretty extensively and I know Thor: Love and Thunder will use it) at all. It's supposed to have the highest number of actual location shots of any MCU film, which was something Chloe Zhao really pushed for. Very little soundstage stuff apparently.

It’s probably a good thing superhero movies don’t do random drug testing

It's a pretty open secret that the studios will hook you up with trainers that will give you a little something extra when you get these gigs. But from what I've seen, ATJ is apparently on that Ultimate Warrior sheet.
