Marvel Studios has officially held its premiere for the much anticipated Eternals and early critic reactions have begun to pour in.

Since Marvel announced that Chloé Zhao would direct Eternals critics and fans alike have voiced their opinions on the interesting choice. The studio, which has been known to stick to a formula when it comes to its box-office films, has proved that they were willing to take a chance Zhao to go a non-conventional route for a superhero film.

In a previous Variety interview, Marvel president Kevin Feige spoke about Zhao’s vision for the film, sharing that she “was really fighting for practical locations.” When speaking about the Eternals sample reel, Feige said “This is right out of a camera; there’s no VFX work to this at all!” He added, “It was a beautiful sunset, with perfect waves and mist coming up from the shore on this giant cliffside—really impressive stuff.” Feige noticed the similarities between the sample reel and Zhao’s Oscar-winning film Nomadland. Upon making the realization, he knew she had to add her “signature style” into Eternals.

The film stars an eclectic cast including, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Gemma Chan, Kumail Nanjiani, Brian Tyree Henry, Richard Madden and Kit Harington. Check out the initial reactions from critics on Chloé Zhao’s Marvel film Eternals, below.
