Marvel’s next big superhero movie, “Eternals,” is in theaters only on November 5.

Ten new character portraits showcase Salma Hayek, Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, and more cast.

Get to know them before the film’s release next month.

“Game of Thrones” star Richard Madden plays Ikaris, another leader of the Eternals.

Ikaris can fly and shoot beams of cosmic energy from his eyes. Here, his character has a romance with Sersi.

In the comics, Ikaris goes undercover as a human named Ike Harris (very subtle).

CBR: Also posted this in May-
In Marvel comics lore, Ikaris (Richard Madden) is the father of the Icarus, the character from Greek Mythology who flies too close to the sun with his magical wings. After his son died, Ikaris took his name and his original name has never been revealed. He has extreme physical abilities, even compared to other Eternals. He’s faster, stronger, able to withstand intense temperatures and force. It’s practically impossible to wear him out or injure him. Though he also possesses psychic abilities, he is not as adept as his counterparts in those areas. Ikaris and Sersi have been in love for many lifetimes, but the presence of the Black Knight in Eternals poses a problem for the couple. And as the end of the trailer suggests, he’s not known for his humility.



The film gives an all new meaning to “dysfunctional family.”

COLLIDER: Marvel’s newest film, Eternals, is set to deal with a universe far wider than MCU fans have ever imagined before. With the film’s cast of characters being the strongest the cinematic universe has ever seen, the new story (directed by Academy Award winner Chloé Zhao) will take fans to all-new, fantastic heights — including the beginning of the Marvel universe as we know it, according to an all-new featurette.

The new video, featuring soundbites from the film’s cast and crew, highlights the true enormity of Eternals’ story, moving beyond the Avengers and into something far bigger and more important than a band of earthbound superheroes. According to Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios and producer on Eternals, the new film is set to not only explore the Eternals’ connection to humanity, but also the world they live in, and how it (and they) came to be:

“Eternals explores the very creation of the Marvel universe itself. The Eternals are these remarkably super-powered characters, but also a dysfunctional family unit, [and] the person to bring that together was Academy Award winner Chloé Zhao. The impact the Eternals have on the MCU will be nothing less than redefining the cinematic universe entirely.”

Set to deal with the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame and the world left behind after the Avengers undid Thanos’s snap, Zhao wants the film’s focus to be on her characters, these overpowered marvels (pun intended) who have fallen in love with humanity and are learning to cope with what has happened to them in this traumatic aftermath. Audiences are set to go on “emotional journeys with these Eternals”, she says, “To figure out who they are and what it means to be human.”

Eternals stars Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kit Harrington, Kumail Nanjiani, Salma Hayek, and Brian Tyree Henry, with a script from Patrick Burleigh and Ryan and Kaz Firpo. The film will premiere exclusively in theaters on November 5. Check out the full video below:




 

WONDERLAND: Richard Madden is sitting barefoot and cross-legged on an inviting velvet armchair. Outside, it’s the hottest day of the year but inside the air conditioning is so prevalent it’s positively chilly. As a proud Scot, Madden is no stranger to the cold and has neatly wrapped himself up in a rather comfy-looking athleisure-type ensemble, albeit sans shoes.

We are on the set of his Wonderland cover shoot and as everyone breaks for lunch, we find an opportune time to catch up and chat with the Bodyguard star and global ambassador of Calvin Klein’s latest fragrance, DEFY, about the year that’s been for arguably one of the entertainment industry’s most hard-working talents.

“If I’m not doing stuff, I always feel like I should be,” says Madden as he twiddles his thumbs, his eyes wide and alive. Like everyone, the 35-year-old was not accustomed to what the past 18 months would have in store. “I’d just finished shooting Eternals when lockdown happened so it was like, oh OK, I’m forced to not do anything,” recalls Madden. “I really needed that because I’m so used to surviving but here I didn’t feel guilty about not doing something because no one was doing anything.”

With a cast that comprises Angelina Jolie, Kit Harington, Gemma Chan, Salma Hayek and Kumail Nanjiani alongside Madden who plays Ikaris, it’s no surprise that Eternals is the most anticipated film of the year and as a big fan of comics himself, Madden too is beyond excited for it to be out.

“They’re all very complicated people in Eternals, but hopefully that can also help us bring a lightness to some heavy subject matter in terms of the story because I think when you live that long you’ve got to have a bit of a smile to yourself. You’ve got to laugh at life.”

Indeed, laughing is something Madden hopes to do more of in the future, both personally and professionally. Given the majority of Madden’s roles have been on the serious side, we talk to him about finding his happy place, about how he comes to terms with feeling self-conscious in front of the camera as well as what he has planned for Christmas this year.

Pre-order the Autumn 2021 issue now…



Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Kumail Nanjiani, and more break down their immortal characters.

 

Ikaris (Richard Madden)

Madden’s Ikaris is one of the most powerful Eternals, with the ability to fly and shoot beams of light from his eyes. He has a special connection with Sersi, but they don’t necessarily see eye to eye on their approach toward humanity. Still, they have a complicated, on-again off-again relationship that’s stretched throughout the centuries. “There’s a deep level of romance in two people that have been around for thousands of years and yet still choose each other,” Madden says.

For the Game of Thrones alum, one of the biggest challenges of playing an immortal superhuman was figuring out how he’s evolved over the last 7,000 years. “I had to work out, how do you play someone who’s seen everything and done everything?” Madden explains. “How do you play them to not be bored of everything because you’re seen it and done it?”

I bet you guys remember the photos of Richard filming a Calvin Klein ad in 2019. Well, its finally time to see the final product! Personally, I am thrilled that Richard is getting more press. He deserves it.

Former GQ cover star Richard Madden has been announced as the new face of Calvin Klein fragrances, a position that will render him even more airtime on our TV screens

 

GQ: A few months ago it was revealed that Game Of Thrones alum Richard Madden would be joining Marvel’s ever-expanding universe. Starring alongside Angelina Jolie, he is set play the role of Ikaris in the hotly anticipated Eternals. Not content with only taking the MCU by storm, the soon-to-be superhero has just added another string to his bow by way of his first ever fragrance campaign.

Calvin Klein has tapped Madden for the launch of its new scent, Defy. The first images from the campaign see the Bodyguard actor dressed in the all-American brand’s signature denim shirt and blue jeans, doused (we assume) in the new fragrance. Meanwhile, the film, which sees Madden move around as if on set of his upcoming Marvel flick, will be blasted into homes around the world.

Defy is Calvin Klein’s first major masculine scent in almost ten years, 2012’s Encounter being the last. Sure to be an instant hit, as most CK fragrances tend to be (we’re looking at you, The One, Obsession, In2U), the CK-branded flacon contains an invigorating citrus juice that is bolstered by fresh and spicy bergamot and empowering lavender absolute. Vetiver oil, which has been responsibly sourced from Haiti, provides a rugged earthiness you’d expect Madden to smell like.

On the partnership, Madden, who joins Jake Gyllenhaal and Kate Moss as CK-approved campaign stars, told GQ exclusively: “I’ve always been a fan of Calvin Klein and having the opportunity to partner with the brand on the launch of their new fragrance, Calvin Klein Defy, has been an exciting adventure.”



 

EW – Saturday night’s alright for fighting…and so, apparently, is any other night (or day) when it comes to the contentious professional and romantic relationship between Elton John (Taron Egerton) and his manager John Reid (Richard Madden).

Rocketman chronicles Elton John’s rise to fame from his early days as a childhood piano-playing prodigy to the peak of his fame in the 1970s and ’80s and his descent into a drug-fueled haze. The film also gave fans a glimpse into John’s fraught love life, including a toxic relationship with his manager John Reid.

In this exclusive deleted clip, tensions mount once again between the pair as they continue to fight over what’s best for Elton’s career — here, it’s whether or not to disclose his sexuality to his mother, a figure who has been a nearly lifelong source of angst for the rock star. As Elton prepares for a show, Reid corners him about coming out to his mother, even threatening to tell her himself.

“What I love about our scenes in the film is that they are two massive personalities,” Egerton previously told EW about sharing the screen with Madden. “It’s a bit like an unstoppable force and an immovable object and a lot of the conflict in the film lies there. We had great scenes to play with.” Including some that didn’t make the final cut, as seen here.

Though they’d never met before filming, Egerton and Madden became fast friends working together on Rocketman and their friendship has proved a fan favorite ever since, with the pair adorably reuniting at EW’s Comic-Con party last month.

While promoting the film, Egerton and Madden told EW they were highly anticipating the DVD bonus features, including a cut portion of their “Honky Cat” musical number. “It’s very cheeky and naughty and we had a lot of fun with it despite the logistical challenges,” said Egerton. “Richard was better at it than I was. There’s a sequence that’s cut actually, which is slightly heartbreaking because a lot of work went into it.”

The Digital, 4k Ultra HD, and Blu-ray releases boast over 75 minutes of bonus content, most notably four extended musical sequences and 10 deleted/extended scenes, including the one exclusively featured here. Other features include sing-along tracks of 13 songs; interviews with Elton John, the cast, and filmmakers; footage from recording studio sessions, as well as three featurettes exclusive to the digital release.

Watch the clip above for more. Rocketman is available on digital beginning August 6.

EW – The Marvel Cinematic Universe just got a little bit bigger.

During Marvel’s presentation at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige teased new details of one of the studio’s upcoming films: The Eternals. The Rider’s Chloe Zhao is directing the film, which will star Angelina Jolie (Thena), Richard Madden (Icarus), Kumail Nanjiani (Kingo), Lauren Ridloff (Makkari), Brian Tyree Henry (Phastos), Salma Hayek (Ajak), Lia McHugh (Sprite), and Don Lee (Gilgamesh).

“It’s about this group of incredible immortals but through their journey we really get to explore what it means to be human and humanity on our time on this planet,” Zhao said.

“The Eternals are a race of immortal aliens sent to Earth by the Celestials to protect humankind from the Deviants,” added Madden. Ridloff also signed that she is playing the first deaf character in the MCU.

Hayek, speaking about being the leader of the group, told the crowd, “I take my inspiration from our leader, Chloe, who’s also a strong woman and it takes a strong woman to do a movie like this because it’s so big and amazing and I’m so excited to be a part of it. The way she approaches leadership as a woman, as a strong woman, is that she sees them as a family. So there’s a lot of mother instincts in this Eternal, who is not supposed to have kids. So this is very exciting, and I feel very honored to be a part of a movie that is going to allow people who never felt represented in superheroes, or in this case Eternals, represented because I am proud to have a diverse family.”

Said Jolie, “I’m so excited to be here. I’m going to work 10 times harder because I think what it means to be a part of the MCU, what it means to be an Eternal, to be a part of this family, I know what we all need to do. We have all read the script. We have all know what the task ahead is and we are all going to be working very very hard. I’m training. I am thrilled. Thank you so much.”

The film, which is shooting in London, is set for release on Nov. 6, 2020.

The Eternals are some of Marvel Comics’ most powerful and mysterious figures. They’re the brainchild of Marvel legend Jack Kirby, who left the publisher in the ’70s to move to DC Comics before returning a few years later. Upon his return to Marvel, Kirby created The Eternals, which followed a group of genetically-engineered gorgeous super-humans blessed with long life. As Kirby wrote it, the Eternals were created by the Celestials, a group of all-powerful giant space gods who designed the Eternals to help defend humanity. (Remember Kurt Russell’s all-powerful Ego from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2? He’s a Celestial.)

Unfortunately, the Celestials also created an evil race known as the Deviants, and the Eternals and the Deviants have clashed ever since.

Up until now, the MCU has largely taken place in the 20th and 21st centuries, but Feige has previously said since The Eternals focuses on a group of ancient, everlasting beings, the film will span eons in their lives.
