That pretty much confirms that Steven’s is playing Kro, the leader of the Deviants. The Deviants are seemingly the bad guys in Eternals. I say seemingly because I’m pretty sure there’s more going on than what the trailers and synopsis tell us. Though I’m not 100% on that for now. What is clear though is the the Deviants and Eternals are traditional enemies of one another. That conflict I’m sure will be further explored within the movie itself.
It seems Kro is a completely mo-cap performance. After all, the toy figures of Kro revealed so far don’t look much like Steven’s and make-up isn’t that good. One would assume it will be Stevens voicing Kro as well.
Here’s the thing. I’m not really sure why this was kept a secret? I doubt Steven’s will get in bother. Knowing who plays a role everyone knew was already in the film isn’t exactly spoilers is it? Maybe if toy figures of Kro were not for sale, or no leaks had already occurred this would be more revealing. However, I’m betting most keen observers reckoned this was who Stevens was playing anyway?
