The film The Eternals got its first teaser last week. These exclusive images were the occasion to discover an official preview of these new superheroes. However, the promotion of the feature film directed by Chloé Zhao had before that made it possible to discover the look of the characters but also the dynamics of the team. On this one, Thena appeared in the front line, the heroine embodied by Angelina Jolie having undoubtedly a capital importance in the intrigue given the Hollywood stature of its interpreter.
Although Sersi (Gemma Chan) is considered the main character of the film, Thena will seemingly be important and this to the point that she could die at the end of the film. Several indices resulting from the promotion of Eternals prove it. Some photos show Thena in the center while others do not portray her alongside her teammates or even exclude her from the promotional calendar. Are we to understand that something serious could happen to the heroine? Given her power as well as her complicated relationship with the feature film’s future antagonist, it wouldn’t be surprising if Angelina Jolie’s character sacrifices herself. Despite his complex romance with Kro, the Eternal might be the only one capable of defeating him.
If another theory would have Thena betray her kind to escape with the Deviant at the end of the feature film – this could also explain her absence in some promotional shots – the heroine’s doom seems more plausible. In addition, Thena appears to be a wise being. So it wouldn’t be surprising if, as an accomplished leader, she sacrifices herself for her group. Another theory is that given the arrival of the Dark Knight and his acquisition of the Ebony Blade, Thena ultimately transmits her powers to Dane Whitman, which could eventually cause his demise. That being said, Chloe Zhao’s blockbuster should also film Ajak’s death. Are we to understand that the MCU would be ready to sacrifice two superheroines? If it will take a little while before finding out, it is clear that this spring could be particularly interesting. The MCU will he take the risk? Answer on November 3, 2021 in the dark rooms!
