First Social Reactions to Marvel’s “Eternals”

Marvel Studios’ Eternals just held its world premiere at Disney’s El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. Now that the first audience has seen the film, attendees have taken to Twitter to share their first reactions ahead of more detailed reviews being written. Our own Mike Mack was in attendance and here’s what he thought.

“Game Changer” is a consistent message in a lot of the reactions.

There’s a lot of praise going around for Oscar-winning director Chloe Zhao.

There is some criticism, most of which is about the pacing of the film and the scope of the project.

Still, no one can say that Marvel Studios was playing it safe with this release.

This sort of goes without saying for a Marvel movie, but if you’re heading to see the film on November 5th, stay all the way through the credits.

Apparently, this end credit tag is a big deal.
