Actor Richard Madden believes that his character Ikaris could lead the Avengers. He added that he had the right traits to take command of the team.

Richard Madden as Ikaris
The Game of Thrones star also added as to why he wanted to play Ikaris. He said that he saw him as a man first, and quite a complicated character, before a superhero.
Madden’s Ikaris is one of the most powerful Eternals. He has the ability to fly and shoot beams of light from his eyes. He also has a special connection with Sersi, but they don’t necessarily agree on their approach toward humanity. Still, they have a complicated, hot, and cold relationship that’s stretched throughout the centuries. Madden says that there is a deep level of romance between the two.
An arduous task in playing an immortal superhuman is figuring out how he’s evolved over the last 7,000 years, as Madden explains in the interview.
