i think we realized how much we are a family and a global family and how natural that is and there are a lot of scenes between us that were as heavy as any drama we've ever done chloe said that from the top like i've cast you for the feel you represent this character this game you pause for thought because i was like richard's like a demigod who shoots lasers out of his eyes my guy's a human who works in the natural history we've come from a generation where you really have to be tough to get
00:33
through and it's like we are like yeah we're making a movie hi i'm devin cogan welcome to entertainment weekly's around the table with the cast of marvel's eternals thank you guys so much for being here with me thank you for having us thank you so i'm so excited to get to talk to you guys in person um i would love to start by kind of just talking about the film as a whole you know which is sort of a little bit different from sort of what we may have seen from marvel before camille i'd love to start with you good call good call not too much pressure yeah i really do
01:06
i'll tell you what i'll throw the question out there and you guys can see who wants to answer yes so i'd love to know sort of for you guys what is it that sets the eternals apart from some of the superheroes that people may have seen in the past actually lauren is the expert on all the superhero movies we have some like marble experts in this table i think camille's got the best answer oh my god we're such a dysfunctional family i'll get started and then please somebody jump in you know the thing that is most obvious obviously is that we're a truly global superhero team usually
01:40
superheroes have looked like in a uh have looked very specific and this we sort of looked like the world and that was important to chloe you know was that this team looks like the world but more than that everybody in the movie all the characters are so different and everybody brings something everybody occupies a different space it really feels like a family but it genuinely generally does i know everybody says it feels like a family but this really really does feel like a family and everybody is like so specific and different and unique and a whole new range of powers yeah that mcu hasn't
02:12
seen before why didn't you guys help fight thanos or any war all the other terrible things throughout history we were instructed not to interfere in any human conflicts and the stevens are involved by who [Music] yeah in in salma i know you play ajak who's sort of the leader of this unconventional family how did you guys want to build that sort of like camaraderie and sort of family relationship it was really easy it was it was kind of like automatic again a
02:43
lot of credit to the director i think uh she was brilliant in the casting i i i mean i think a lot of us identify in different ways to our characters she actually casted lovely people and humble people i was terrified of angelina [Laughter] she was the nicest the most down-to-earth the most humble the most warm the easiest to work with you know generous uh a little bit afraid of donald's yeah
03:15
and he was not we're the scary he's such a teddy bear i mean yes and um it it it's just a group of really really lovely people he i thought he was going to be a little bit of a diva you know hottest guy on earth no also the other hottest guy on earth i don't see him goofball we have a hot cat it was very easy it was very easy i haven't seen some of them for centuries hi
03:51
hello this is what the end of the world looks like at least we have front row seats you know what's never saved the planet you're sarcasm yeah that was something i wanted to ask about because i know chloe has talked about in casting she wanted to cast people who she felt you know sort of there was something that they they could identify with each of these characters i would love to sort of go down the line and hear from each of you what did you most see yourself in the character that you play yeah chloe said that from the top like try and play these i've picked
04:22
you i've cast you because i feel you represent these characters try and play them as close to you as possible this gave me pause for thought because i was like wait a minute richard's like a demi-god who shoots lasers out of his eyes my guy is a human who works in the natural history and you've cast us to be close to our i was like yeah that kind of makes sense [Laughter] so yeah i know that was that was an
04:52
interesting thing about it is that she was like i don't want you to stray too far from who you are i want you to play this very close to you and that's part of what she was bringing to this movie i think is a kind of a basic realism to this universe the character is very approachable yeah and fun yeah but there's more to you than meets the eye yeah yeah there's all the mystery in there what about you salma what did you most identify with um about ajac when she talked to me the first time she said to me
05:22
i really wanted you for this part from the beginning because you have a different kind of strength i'm still trying to figure out what that means i think she explained it to me but i i was just so shocked they were calling before the movie i i only understood half of what she was saying and i do i do think i'm i'm strong i don't know in which way is he's different because ah she said you're gonna be it's a vulnerable strength uh that's what she saw in me and i think that's the character it's a strength
05:53
that it's vulnerable because what gives her a lot of strength it comes from from empathy and and i think that's lovely [Music] five years ago thanos erased half of the population of the universe but the people of this planet brought everyone back with a snap of a finger yeah what about you angelina what did you say i think it'd be fun if we answer each other's i want to answer so much i know why some of these things nobody you know i think that's almost hard to say
06:25
yeah angelina's versus what right i think we should do that next what did you what did you recognize uh in each other then well that's gonna take i mean that's what i'm saying next time no but i'm saying but you're very mature right she's very very that's really what we should say she's it's comes like very naturally to take care of people and to and you took care of us but you have to say what is because she has well let me jump in here angie i'm good okay thank you because you know i'll speak for you i mean
07:01
because we are family right i got you i think that i just feel like angie has so much in common with her character with tina because the goddess of war she is so full of love and she's not afraid to actually statement step in and fight for what's right and you see that you see that in how she actually really comes in for she fights for human rights and i mean we all know you know angie for her work and she champions for women's rights for you know for all the things and i
07:32
feel like she's just you know you see that within angie i gotta say i gotta say angie is obsessed with justice and i think that's a character trait but also she's incredibly loyal if you get her she is i've seen that it's loyal and devoted and you can see that in the relationship with gilgamesh and with us and she's a survivor and a fighter and i think and you know what fearless fearless right i so agree with
08:04
you so much i agree with you i think there were moments when we were shooting when chloe was talking and give us direction and we would stand there and look at each other we're like nobody would say anything but usually angie would step in and say okay let's see here so let's go through that again with us so we could stand up and she would speak for us and fight for us yeah and i thought it was so wonderful how your character carries strength and weakness at the same time you know the vulnerability and the power
08:46
having it be one thing that you can be both things at the same time uh was it was really really exciting to watch and also the way that you reveal your character through your physicality we've talked about this you know i i i talk a lot my characters always talk a lot you're physical i tried but with you you know it's really interesting to see you reveal character without words it was um inspiring and intimidating we have loved these people since the day we arrived [Applause]
09:17
when you love something [Music] you protect it continuing down the line don what was it well i don't know why she picked me but uh oh i heard that uh the gilgamesh uh was was not written for an action actor in comics but uh they changed to asian hero so i thought it was a very smart idea for global audiences and you're a protector and you're the one that we all go to yes yes you've got that you're
09:54
strong and you're great and you're kind the strongest one with the biggest heart that's right because you're you fight with brute strength and also the biceps for sure for real they're real how you know so well how to manage action comedy and drama this is in terms of acting i was very impressed and how you can do that so suddenly your family yeah yeah no it's great because your fighting style is proof strength but then your
10:25
inherent sweetness is so apparent in the rest of this scene the rest of the movie like that really is it's so it's so heartbreaking your character it's yeah i was so glad that chloe and our action team was so open-minded i was i was designing a lot of those actions before and then they uh let me do this a lot of actions in here so i can design um my own action theme from my boxing skills so and we were all coming to him for some tips and some
10:57
moves what do you think about this one so he was uh really supportive in that way it was great to have it yeah he's been doing the action for a while he's amazing at it i was very excited i remember i got this because you don't see the script not a that's the thing right you sign up but we yeah you sign up and you're not sure really what you've agreed to then i'll show you the script you have to sign the paper and no it's like a marriage so then you as you go through you say okay but then when i remember realizing that we were a team and lauren what about you what was it that you really connected with with
11:28
makari well first of all i'm just gonna speaking about makari i would say that yesterday felt like was my wedding day i mean and you know and seriously you know literally my marriage to the mcu i'm getting married this is our celebration as a family together and celebrating and that just makes so much sense when you actually join the mcu and now all of us are eternals you know it isn't a commitment and
12:00
how can we bring that kind of commitment you know by being real by bringing our real authentic selves to the movie to the story and i think all of the eternals all of the characters are supposed to be super heroes and demigods you know fancy robots but at the same time i think that we're all portraying our human flaws and that is where all of us come in i think that you know as ourselves we actually bring our flaws to our
12:31
characters so now about makari um we both like to run we i love books we both love books and we both love art that's it and she's a fierce protector yes i loved your relation your little friendship with drug in the movie i loved that it's really sweet i think it's more than a friendship spoil anything age-appropriate i also think lauren
13:01
tell me if i remember i think that for makari is very important the sense of community i think for her character is super important her family her community and i think lauren is like that too i feel like lauren was one of the people that really kept us all together right balanced everybody connected to everybody oh hi okay so this is definitely awkward let's move on here she comes yeah leah tell me tell us a little bit about what you most identified with with
13:32
sprite i was able to really relate to her because you know she's 7 000 years old stuck in the body of a child and i felt a lot of my life that i've looked younger than i actually am and i've sort of dealt with that in a way so i was able to bring that into the character and really understand her i think how old are you now i'm almost 16. sorry i'll just say real quick what emily said my wife said after watching you she said you really can't you really felt like a 7 000 year old in the body of you know you were 13 or 14 when we
14:03
showed that that was emily came to set and she saw you do a scene and she was like it's really impressive because you talked to her and she's leah when then when she goes on camera you really feel that sort of weight uh that that she carries with her all intents i definitely think that not only she's an old soul but that she's so mature in so many ways for her age yeah maybe you want to tell them but at what age you graduated from high school i'm 13 yes
14:33
and she's already studying in college for a while and she's very romantic oh i think that's true yeah and yeah yeah but she's going to embarrass you now just like family she can be a smart student which is also a part of the character yeah and i will say on top of that i mean i don't know why but when i actually see sprite and i see leah i'm so reminded of this generation and children who are carrying this world you know and it's really a huge responsibility you know and i feel like that the
15:05
younger people like yourselves actually are carrying this big sense of maturity and responsibility for making sure that the planet is still going to be available to us as humans i think one of my favorite um comparisons in the in the movie is his sprite is tinkerbell yeah so that was great you did a great job yeah was that your idea no no no no but he's the one excited yeah but it's a beautiful moment that the comparison of yeah icarus is peter and you're the last you're the lost boys yes
15:36
yeah i'm happy we're the lost boys yeah i don't know what i am but i am the capital so now that captain rogers and iron man are both gone who do you think's gonna lead the avengers i could lead them and then to wrap it up uh camille tell us a little bit about what you fortunately we're out of time you have to move on i mean it was very similar to what they said when i met chloe you know i was like yes of course i'm gonna i will do the movie that you want me and i asked i was like who is
16:12
kingo and she said kingo's you and then she walked away and i was like hell what did that mean so then we sort of talked a bunch and i decided to you know because we're all we're not any one thing we all sort of contain like opposites you know sometimes you nobody ever feels the same way day after day so i was like oh let's like all they're saying all their characters are like strong and vulnerable at the same time i was like how do we find opposites to play so you know to me he's
16:43
like he's selfless and very self-involved he's sarcastic and he's very sincere he's childish and also wise in some ways so and superficial and very deep yes that's right yeah superficial and very deep so it was just sort of like finding fun opposites to play there's also if i now i'm going to get in your space but i think you as i think where you overlap this generosity because i think you are very generous with i think when you do even doing any kind of comedy in life right you make people laugh you connect to people you have to understand
17:14
and feel people the same with way he entertains or the way you are when you come into a room or the way you keep our spirits up or the way you also can if you feel it's also time to have a serious conversation but it seems to be coming from a place of generosity and yeah and i would say one last one that i love about you a sense of wonderment that is like one of the best qualities one can have as a human being because you stay in love with life and i think that kinko has that sense of wonderment that excitement about everything
17:46
and i think you have that and i think that's one of your greatest attributes it's connected to passion but it's not just passion it's that wowness you know and you're old dude yeah that happens when you're like 12 30 40. usually usually it's beaten out of us right now i'm very jealous that you're still like perfect timing welcome to the set of chandar dastani icarus i'm playing you you like the costume we need to talk
18:27
tell the director i have some notes we need to talk to you in private oh karon he's worked with me for 50 years i trust him completely actually when we first met he thought i was a vampire and he tried to stake me through the heart i've apologized so many times not quite enough times very close though i'll let you know oh i have to get ready for the next scene come to my tent we'll talk there one of the things i really love about this film is is that central relationship between thena and gilgamesh so i wanted to ask you don and angelina what was your most memorable day working together well um
18:57
this is like i i'm a huge fan of her anyway but uh this first time i met her and then uh i've been in this industry for a while and ash you know she's saying but uh i felt like uh we were old friends finally got to work together we were looking out for each other always so we became a real family in the movie that's why i enjoyed work and then it was really great you know thanks to her i was so i'm a big fan of dons and so i
19:31
think as i said as i look through it and realize we do both have a history of of different films but but also action so so the that we could get together and play but also fight together and i was very excited also to see um there aren't a lot of relationships like like theirs represented usually between a man and a woman there's an obvious romance that's that's presented their whole life is a bit mysterious but you know that they their center is like
20:00
two soldiers who are unbelievably loyal to each other and look after each other and and a deep deep respect and friendship and an equality that's not stated it's just it just is and they would die for each other and uh and they both they both need each other and they they balance so i i felt that that was it felt very special and it's true and first time we met it was as if we'd known each other forever yeah so we got we we're just happy to hang
20:31
out together and i think the audience feels that yeah yeah definitely you know i learned from watching selma and angie i realized well what you do on camera is just a part of our job i feel like you know you guys really took on the job of being sort of the morale of the set you know it's it's hard work you work long hours shooting 4 am in the middle of the woods you know but you guys like really work to create a sense of community and we don't whine like the
21:03
millenniums exactly i mean someone's work ethic is so energy we're like warriors we go from a generation where you really have to be tough to get through and it's like we are like yeah we're making a movie yeah that's good we talked about that i mean angie's been thrown on a pit with snakes and she's like bring them on i can't do this so it's kind of like that love for film and yeah the the the honor and saying
21:33
i'm a professional you know i'm gonna do this you can count on me i will be there all around it because it's not just what's in the camera it's how you handle a whole shoot i remember the day you came to set and you had memorized this entire monologue that i think was two pages long because i was like oh you didn't need to learn it that's okay and you were like ready for it yeah yeah that was something i wanted to throw out to any of you guys when you think back to filming um was there a particular scene or or a day on set that that most sticks out in your mind the woods were
22:03
really fun when we stayed up really late it sounds like the younger person well i got to go home in the morning i'll tell you what i had a humbling moment because i got to a location that they had been there everybody was complaining about the the dirt storm and i was like so what you know you get there you open your eyes even if you're being stuck by the thing you just get out there and do it oh my god what we got there first of all
22:37
they had to like grab me because i'm trying to walk in the stones with the weird shoes with a little hill hidden because i'm so sure you have to hide the and i'm wobbling i have like three people pushing me through the wind you know there was so much needles coming at you you know not just the eyes you could sleep everywhere and i said oh dear and i had like three people pushing and you get the position and the wind is making you like this and we all with our eyes closed and they
23:08
said okay one two three and then they erase it but the pain you cannot raise no no it's pain and you have to stand there you're like a superhero dying yeah and then i also remember and i think all of us actually were glowing after that because there was some deep microdermabrasion yes remember the day selma it was raining and it was freezing and they weren't going to make her go lay in
23:39
the mud for a scene and she was like no i want to get out there i want to go get in the mud i want to make it look good and it was freezing it was it was really late i was hours but then it's not the same for the actor not to to to pretend there's something there or it's a doll even if i'm not closing my eyes or saying lines the human energy and the connection i think it helps that i've worked with actors who are not there when it when they're off camera right someone else is reading it and obviously that's frowned upon you don't do that
24:11
but you really took it to another level and that your performance when you weren't on camera for the other actors for us was just as good as when you were on camera and i remember this a moment where you gave a speech as just all of us standing in a row and each time it was our coverage you gave the speech everything and you made eye contact with the person it's really like going around the camera it was so important to you i like my job it's not just for the camera i enjoy every minute of it and and
24:42
i enjoy looking at your reaction and there were some scenes where i had problems i went to angie and you know we were just getting to know each other and uh i said help me here i have this problem in the thesis and the data and my god it was amazing and you know the process of getting there talking about it i enjoyed every minute of it you know and then actually after having that doing it and there were moments where they said caught and we just looked at
25:14
each other remember what i remember you know you know when you got it yes that thing that's what that's what it's meaningful because the movie sometimes they do well sometimes they do bad it's the process what you did in the process how do you enjoy it how do you enrich yourself and your life and the connections that you make that really stays forever regardless of the result of the thing and i think what's interesting is it's you go into this and it's a marvel film and you're dressed in these outfits and you know that and that's kind of you walk into it that way and i think
25:45
what took us by surprise and what i hope will take the audience by surprise and believe it will is they're very heavy themes in this film very it is very human it's very much about being human it's very much about love and family and so what we discovered and why we're so close i think is because we did come as ourselves i think when we watch the film we all discover something about ourselves we didn't even know and i think we realized how much we are a family and a global family and how natural that is
26:17
and there are a lot of scenes between us that were as heavy as any drama we've ever done oh yeah you have some really happy juices and she did it every time look i can cry i can do it well you know you have it i don't know after the fifth time because they're going for another you're still getting lazy with the emotion and i can't i can't do it but it start getting she's a wrong one or an emotional wreck
26:48
you cycle the other angle and i go oh my god how does she every time every time you know and also that's why i think i wanted to do it with each one of you because i love working with each one of you i love working i mean he's so still and he gives you so much i was so impressed i didn't have anything with him i know and i am devastated about it i'm devastated we have to do something yeah i think we should all start writing a list of what we want
27:19
for the for a sequel we need the audience we need the songs to help us yeah get this done yeah this has been uh entertainment weekly's around the table uh with the cast of marvel's eternals uh which is out november 5th thank you all so much for joining me thank you for having us thank you
