Angelina Jolie recently made her debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Thena, the Goddess of War in the latest blockbuster movie, Eternals. The film has been generating a lot of buzz lately, with mixed reviews from critics on Rotten Tomatoes. Nonetheless, it’s a cinematic masterpiece that has transformed the Marvel Cinematic Universe into something never seen before. Under the direction of Chloé Zhao and a talented cast including Salma Hayek, Gemma Chan, Kit Harington, Richard Madden, and Kumail Nanjiani, Eternals explores the story of the celestials who have been absent from the timeline for some time. The film transports audiences 7000 years back in time to witness the creation of these beings and their journey to earth to save it.
Thena is one of the most significant characters in the film. Angelina Jolie portrays her as a melancholic character burdened by a memory spanning 7000 years. Despite her heroic reputation in folklore, Thena is vulnerable and helpless in the present. The internet has already started campaigning for a standalone movie featuring Thena. All in all, Eternals is a cinematic triumph that has breathed new life into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Angelina Jolie has expressed her desire to continue working with the team of Eternals, instead of pursuing a spin-off for her character Thena. She referred to the cast and crew as her family and stated that she would be happy to reprise her role and delve deeper into the struggles of her character. Jolie also mentioned the vast amount of material available from thousands of years of history for potential storylines. She even suggested the possibility of appearing in other Marvel movies.
