According to a recent toy leak, the villain's name from the upcoming MCU movie "The Eternals" may have been spoiled. In the history of the film, the Eternals will fight the Deviants on Earth. The cast includes Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani and Salma Hayek.
Even though The Eternals' theatrical release was postponed by Marvel Studios to February 12, 2021 a few days ago, a tweet about alleged new Funko-Pop characters now seems to provide information about the upcoming MCU film. The focus is on the new villain of the superhero team. According to a list of Funko's next pop characters, Kro (leader of the Deviants) will likely play an important role in the film.
We already know that after the Avengers: Endgame events, the Eternals must protect Earth from the Deviants. So far, the team around actors like Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani or Salma Hayek is completely unknown to the people. Of course, fans are now also speculating who will take on the role of Kro.
Here it is already assumed that the actor has already been confirmed for the project and we just don't yet know which character he will play in the film. Kit Harrington is currently one of the favorites that many of you may know from Game of Thrones. So far, it has been assumed that Harrington will be seen as the Black Knight. However, it is quite possible that this is only Kro's camouflage. So far, the Marvel Studios have been reluctant to comment.
Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe should actually start on April 30, 2020 with the launch of Black Widow. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the date has now been postponed to November 6, 2020. The dates of the other Marvel films have also changed, as we reported a few days ago.
