Eternals director has said that the MCU movie has also taken inspiration from Manga. Here’s everything we know!
“Eternals” has taken inspiration from Manga!
Marvel’s Eternals is taking a proposal from a surprising source: Japanese manga. Eternals director Chloe Zhao impressed Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige during their meeting about the move to the Eternals director’s chair. This is because Zhao came up with a complete visual presentation of how to make Eternals on the big screen, and those scenes were actually inspired by manga-style works. Zhao’s love for manga seemingly deepens, dating back to her childhood. It’s an influence she hopes to bring to a big-budget Hollywood movie, in which she sees a greater synthesis of Eastern and Western storytelling styles.
What was Zhao’s statements on this?
Chloe Zhao was portrayed in one piece by THR, as her new movie Nomadland is receiving attention and acclaim. That seems like the right kind of goal, and Marvel Studios clearly shares it now. While Chloe Zhao will deliver her manga impacts to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, director Destin Daniel Cretton will shed light on Asian culture (and characters) in Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten The timing could not be better: the Asian market is a Hollywood that has been making more and more efforts in the last decade.
Meanwhile, anime/manga has quickly joined the superheroes of western comics as one of the maximum popular (and profitable) style content material available. If Chloe Zhao may want to carry a present-day manga style to Eternal, it can be a profitable replace to the unique Jack Kirby style that made The Eternal characters famous in the first place.
When will Eternals release?
The movie was originally scheduled to arrive in November before the coronavirus epidemic delayed the entire MCU Phase 3 roster. This means that Ertanels had a marketing campaign that closed with Black Widow from May (if not already), the film that now occupies the November 2023 slot. All this to say: even with the Coronavirus delay, it seems that Marvel Studios could put a trailer for Eternals so far to at least eliminate fans. Marvel’s Entertainer will hit theaters on February 12, 2023.
