Marvel Fans Are Split in Half as the Official Cast for The Eternals are Introduced

Whether it is the typical typecasting or the unfamiliar faces revealed in The Eternal's teaser video, Marvel fans are making a buzz since the reveal of these names and their characters.

The vast opinions range from "These look like pretty bad choices," to "The gender-swapping is a bit odd, but I'm down," which are all replies under IGN's tweet showing all 11 members of the movie.

The accuracy of the characters is also a hot topic among avid fans since Marvel opted to switch the genders of the characters. A fan took onto Twitter and had a full-on meltdown, ranting about how inconsistent Marvel was with portraying their characters in the movies and their difference from the original description and qualities in the comics.

However, quite a few understood their decisions made by the studio, focusing on the importance of the "acting quality" rather than the character's appearance.
