Salma Hayek Shares Stories From The Set Of “Eternals” Movie

GamesRadar 1

Salma Hayek offers an intriguing new detail about her character, Ajak, in Marvel’s Eternals that she can’t have children.

Salma Hayek has revealed fresh insights about her Eternals character. Eyes have been moving to the next Marvel film on the release schedule after nearly two weeks of watching Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings in theaters.

The next cinematic entry in the MCU, like Shang-Chi, will continue to introduce new and distinctive heroes who are expected to make their marks on Phase 4 and beyond.

Latest Updates About Eternals Movie:

Eternals is a film written and directed by Nomadland’s Chloé Zhao. In the movie, a group of immortal aliens has been living on Earth for many millennia but has been ordered by their creators and overlords, the Celestials, to never interfere in human affairs unless their malevolent counterparts, the Deviants, are present.

However, the sudden reappearance of half the planet’s population in Avengers: Endgame allows them to return. Eternals appears to be a collection piece, with Ajak (Salma Hayek), Thena (Angelina Jolie), Ikaris (Richard Madden), and Sersi (Gemma Chan) as some of its most prominent characters.

Following the conclusion of the first two films, fans were demanding answers to a slew of new questions. In an interview with Total Film (via The Direct), Salma Hayek has added more information about her Eternals character. Fans had previously known quite a bit about Ajak, and Hayek provided another intriguing revelation.

In an interview with Vogue, Adriana revealed that her character “can’t have children” and said, “We’ve been discussing how director Chloé Zhao wanted to ‘approach the idea of leadership from a mother’s eyes.’

 What Adriana Hayek had to say:

Chloé wanted to approach the notion of leadership from a mother’s standpoint… I’m not a parent. I’m an extraterrestrial. I can’t procreate. My character, on the other hand, was previously a guy in the comics who has now been transformed into a woman. So rather than merely altering gender, I suggested that [Zhao] bring something distinct to women through her work.

Ajak was previously revealed to be gender-swapped for the movie, and in previous interviews, Hayek has stated that her character is the group’s de facto maternal figure.

However, the news that Ajak is unable to conceive is new. Is she claiming that her character is infertile or that the Eternals cannot breed as a whole species? It’s also unclear if this notion will be addressed in the sequel.

Thanos’ parentage is not addressed in the comics, but it has been established that he is a member of the enigmatic species. The Deviant Syndrome, rather than being generated, was said to have been present in Thanos from birth.

Thanos also has a kid named Thane, suggesting that Eternals can breed. Since they are immortal and can be resurrected by a Celestial machine, they don’t have much of a use for them. When the film debuts on November 5, hopefully, the Eternals’ origins, lore, and other information like this will be addressed.
