If you’re like many comic book fans out there, chances are you have a pretty solid idea of who most of the major characters are, but may not be fully versed in their lore. I, for example, have heard of The Eternals, and know of some of the characters who make them up, but I have spent exactly zero hours reading anything called The Eternals and therefore don’t fully know what to expect.
And I know I’m not alone. Sure, by the time the movie comes out, I’m sure there will be plenty of people who will go on claiming how they love these characters and have been waiting for them to get the big screen treatment, but for those of us who don’t really know it’s okay. In fact, it’s probably for the better, as Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige revealed to Bionic Buzz.
“Your reaction about not being familiar with the Eternals is perfect, because most people weren’t familiar with Guardians [of the Galaxy] and believe it or not there were people that were not familiar with Avengers or with Iron Man. So for us, its finding great stories, whether people have heard of them or not, and bring them to the big screen in as amazing a way as we can.”
The comments from Feige are perfect, especially regarding Guardians of the Galaxy. That was another team I’d heard of but hadn’t actually read. My knowledge of their mythology, or lack thereof, didn’t keep me from enjoying the hell out of those movies, and in many ways, not having any preconceived notion of what to expect could have helped me engage more fully with the story.
But what do you think? Do you agree with Feige’s comments? Let us know your thoughts down below!
