Reason for Jolie to join Eternals
According to reports, Angelina Jolie discussed how she had been offered superhero roles in the past but turned them down until she was offered a position in Eternals and revealed that the character inspired her to want to be a part of the film. She also revealed the sole reason for joining the film’s cast.
Salma Hayek, on the other hand, is making her superhero debut with the film and discussed how her character seemed like the perfect one at the right moment. She commended the film’s director, Chloé Zhao, and remarked how much she adored her, as well as how significant it was that she could be a superhero in her 50s, and a Mexican-Arab superhero, at this time.
Hayek also claimed that only Angelina Jolie had signed the project before her when she joined the cast, and that it excited her.
Eternals was dubbed the most unlike MCU movie ever by critics and fans who attended the screening, and Zhao was praised for her unconventional directing. The film received generally excellent reviews, with some internet users describing it as visually spectacular and character-driven. The film’s post-credits scene, according to critics, was a game-changer.
