Sersi

Sersi is played by Gemma Chan in Eternals. Sersi’s strongest power is that she can manipulate matter. In the trailer, we see Sersi transform a city bus into rose petals with her hands. If you assess Sersi’s abilities in the Marvel comics, she ranks as the strongest Eternal. In Eternals, Sersi is also caught up in a love triangle between Ikaris, a fellow Eternal, and Dane Whitman, who later becomes Black Knight. Dane is played by Kit Harington.

Thena

Thena is played by Angelina Jolie in Eternals. Thena is by far the most skilled fighter of the Eternals. She is nearly impossible to defeat in battle. Thena’s weapon of choice is a golden spear, which is created through energy manipulation. Angelina calls Thena the “goddess of war.” She notes that Thena can “manifest different weapons.” However, Thena does have her struggles in Eternals.

“Thena is like a soldier who is affected by the memories of battle and has PTSD or moral injury to live with,” Angelina said about the character, according to The Direct. “Thena just assumes that a fight’s coming at her rather than care and kindness. So she’s quite wired, and a lot of her struggle is just holding on to her mind and her center and her peace. I understand her, and how she feels.”

Ajak

Ajak is played by Salma Hayek. Ajak is the leader of the Eternals. Her main power is that she is able to heal both humans and Eternals. She can also directly communicate with the Celestials and expresses their messages to the rest of the Eternals.

Ikaris

Ikaris is played by Richard Madden in Eternals. Richard calls Ikaris the “loyal soldier” of the Eternals. Ikaris can project cosmic energy beams from his eyes. He also possesses incredible strength and can fly. He’s been in an on-again, off-again relationship with Sersi for thousands of years.

Kingo

Kingo is played by Kumail Nanjiani in Eternals. He has the power to project cosmic energy blasts from his hands. Kumail describes Kingo as a “little self-involved.” When he’s not saving the world, he’s a Bollywood star.

Kumail underwent a major physical transformation to play Kingo. “If I’m playing the first South Asian superhero, I want to look like someone who can take on Thor or Captain America, or any of those people,” Kumail told GQ.

Sprite

Sprite is played by Lia McHugh. Sprite can create amazing illusions. In the film, Sprite is 13 years old and has been that way for thousands of years. She’s unable to physically age as an Eternal.

Druig

Druig is played by Barry Keoghan in Eternals. Druig’s main power is mind control. “He stands up for what he believes and that there shouldn’t be violence,” Barry says of his character.

Makkari

Makkari is played by Lauren Ridloff in Eternals. She possesses incredible speed. Makkari’s debut marks the first deaf superhero to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There’s also a close bond between Makkari and Druig in the film.

“I think the relationship between Makkari and Druig really comes to a surprise for actually several people here on stage because within the script, it wasn’t really something that was so apparent,” Lauren said in a press conference, according to SlashFilm.com. “But Chloe, under her brilliant direction, wanted us to imply that there was a lot more to Druig and Makkari. And I feel like that what actually brought them together is, like you said, they’re both very impatient and they both have a lot of power. They’re very powerful individuals and they’re told to hold back, to hold themselves back.”

Phastos

Phastos is played by Brian Tyree Henry in Eternals. Phastos can “assemble anything out of any kind of technology.” He is a genius and a master inventor. He can also create cosmic energy beams with his hands.

In the film, Phastos has a husband, Henry, and son, Jack. The character makes history as the MCU’s first gay superhero. Phastos and his husband, played by Haaz Sleiman, will share a kiss in Eternals, marking the first gay kiss in the MCU.

Gilgamesh

Gilgamesh is played by Don Lee in Eternals. “He’s a protector,” Don says. His specialty is a “strong punch.” Gilgamesh possesses superhuman strength. He’s also close with Thena.

Brielle Biermann Sizzles In White Bikini Designed By Mom Kim Zolciak As She Poses On A Beach — Photos

Published

on

Brielle Biermann looked sensational as she lounged on a sandy beach, modeling one of her mom’s two piece swimsuits.

Brielle Biermann, 24, is the perfect bikini model! Kim Zolciak‘s daughter looked sexier than ever as she sported a two-piece white swimsuit from her mom’s Salty K line in an ad posted on Friday, Nov. 25. The brunette posed with her long legs spread down the beach she showed off her golden tan and three Cartier LOVE bangles on her right wrist.

Brielle accessorized the spaghetti strap bandeau top and high waist bottom with a blush pink bucket hat that partially covered her eyes as she gazed off into the abyss. “Happy Thanksgiving from our Salty K family to yours! Brielle wearing our Seashells top + bottom…#saltykswim,” the brand captioned the Instagram post, naming the styles of the top and bottom, which retail for $90/each.

Earlier this year, Brielle opened up about her fitness plan and shedding some pounds after the COVID-19 quarantine. “I only eat between 3-8 every day!” she said via a fan question and answer session on Us Weekly‘s Instagram account back in March. The 24-year-old also confessed that there’s one particular fast food restaurant she visits on the regular. “I go to [Chick-fil-A] EVERYDAY (except Sunday) around 3 for my breakfast/lunch,” she added.

Her go-to order? Their classic chicken sandwich with extra pickles, or a spicy chicken sandwich with extra sauce (she keeps extra in her fridge), along with a large soda drink. In 2019, she also revealed she was a fan of intermittent fasting, which means you time meals around certain times of day — generally avoiding the afternoons.

The reality star particularly missed her Chick-fil-A visits during quarantine when her dad Kroy Biermann didn’t want her to leave the house and expose herself (and later potentially family members) to the virus. “We got in this huge argument one day because finally I was like, ‘I don’t know if I’m having withdrawals or what’s happening, but I’m going a little insane here. I just want some sense of normalcy. Can I please go to Chick-fil-A?’” she said to Us Weekly in 2020.
