Eternals. Bad, it was so bad πŸ˜”. The lead had no personality, few of the characters made you care about them. The story I suspect is for comic aficionados only. As a film is was overlong, dull, lacking in character or interest.

Considering how many films marvel have made it was a surprise that they had not had a complete duffer up to this point. That run has come to an end. Avoid.

Considering nobody cared about the comics .. nobody even remembered them .. I am not surprised at all

Always the way aswell oh you had someone super powerful could stop thanos. They did nothing

It's like when Nolan wrote the dark Knight trilogy he made it clear when superman came out years later it was different universe or timeline as if superman was around that film would have been about 10 mins

Oh you got a bomb? It's gone now. Your welcome

Haha, yeah I even saw in the trailer they put a throwaway line in blagging it. "Why didn't you stop Thanos?" "We were ordered not to interfere blah blah" Whatever mate.

I am a comic fan and hte Eternals does not even appeal to me. Marvel are a bit stuck at the moment. Comics as a whole (certainly in the family friendly category) are pretty similar and so Marvel are faced with keeping producing what they have been or try some of the more out there stuff, which is never going to have a wide appeal. They are even running out of new, mainstream, characters that will resonate with the general public.

If the next phase of films are not as big, I can see a rush to get the X-Men and Fantastic Four up and running.

Yeah this is exactly my way of thinking

They did well with iron man.. a proper b side comic they transformed him into the main hero .. annoyed me a bit

However eternals? ... Yawn

Guardians is an example of how you take a group of characters from scratch, mould them together, add a story, make a great film. Eternals is quite the opposite. Whoever wrote or directed Eternals should be made to sit and watch Guardians on loop for 48 hours to show them exactly where they went wrong.

The Bollywood Eternal and his valet, his own description, could join Guardians. The rest are for the bin.

The other thing is that, unlike other franchises, they are trying to produce 3 or 4 films a year, just too many as ,though the characters differ, the subject matter is oftern very similar. Not sure where I would go from here. Actually enjoying the TV series more than the films at the moment. Interesting to see how Hawkeye starts off in a couple of weeks.

Agreed, not really sure why they are even trying with this stuff, did they not learn when the Inhumans tanked. Then again, this may just be build up to something else to come later.

Not sure how to feel about the next Spiderman film. Interesting to bring in the previous iterations and bad guys from other franchise attempts but part of me feels that this may be jumping the shark.

And for anyone who has not seen it, the animated Spiderman film is on terrestrial TV this week I think. Forget that it is animated, best Marvel film in years (I know it was a Sony one, but Marvel Characters).

Personally I'm looking forward to it

Opening the multiverse is more of where it should be going rather than trying to launch eternals

Will certainly still watch it, it may be the film that gets me back to the cinema as still a little nervous about it.

That said, Ghostbusters Afterlife may get me back there first.

Haven't seen the Eternals yet but did finally watch Shang-Chi last night and found it very so-so. One of the poorer MCU movies. Didn't hate it but found it just so formulaic.

Agree they need to get the FF and X-Men in there but they've been so poorly done in the past that it's going to be real challenge to do them justice and remove that baggage.

Moon Knight series looks promising and I keep hearing rumours they're going to bring DD and the Kingpin from the Netflix series into the MCU. Hope that pans out.

If you found Shang-Chi so-so then really don't bother with The Eternals. I'm on a mission to save people from the misery I endured watching it 😁.

Eternals is a poor mans Shang-Chi (I actually enjoyed Shang-Chi to be fair)

I'm sure I'll get round to it sooner or later. Still enjoyed Shang-Chi but found it a bit disappointing.

We watched Red Notice over the weekend. As an action comedy it was obviously far-fetched and completely ridiculous, with plenty of plot holes and a twist that makes you go "oooooooh... wait, what?" But I'm a fan of Reynolds and The Rock so it was still a good laugh.

Rumour is strong that DD is in the new Spiderman film (though just as Matt Murdoch to start). Kingpin will be in the new Hawkeye series starting on Wednesday.
