Marvel’s Eternals Set Photos Have Richard Madden’s Ikaris Dressed in Denim
We now have our first Ikaris photos of Richard Madden from the film Eternals. The actor of Game of Thrones was spotted on the set with a lot of denim. The production of the film has been going on for a few months now, but we have not seen more than one actor on the set at a time. Thena's Angelina Jolie was the first to be spotted and Cersi's Gemma Chan, but they have not been seen together yet.
Richard Madden is in normal attire in the Eternals [ but he is attached to cables and there seems to be a stuntman nearby. Although it's full denim with a white t-shirt, it's safe to say that it will fly in places, either off or on landing. As with all photos taken, it's hard to tell what happens when you look at it out of context. Whatever it is, it's our first look at Ikaris, which is pretty exciting.
Ikaris has the power to fly in comics and he can levitate himself, as well as those who surround him. The character has a cosmic energy that makes him an almost unstoppable fighting force and means that he is pretty much immortal since he can heal himself at will. For the Eternals Ikaris is one of the most powerful of the group, like Thena. In a comic scenario, he even took on the role of wrestler, but it is unlikely that we would see this particular scenario in the big screen adaptation. Looking at Richard Madden in regular attire, it is possible that Ikaris loses memory.

In the Eternals Comics of 2006, the group loses memory and ignores that he has super powers. This scenario was written by Neil Gaiman and could end up in the movie. We are talking here about Marvel Studios, so we do not receive any information about the movie or about certain plot points. That being said, some have speculated that Richard Madden's Ikaris could be the first openly gay superhero of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Just like the theory of erasure of memory, it's just a rumor and this has not been officially confirmed.
When looking at Ikaris in plainclothes, one can easily see it referring to normal human beings. If he is a fierce protector of this breed in comics, he also finds kinship ties with the human race. Ikaris is a bit of a rebel among the Eternals and believes that they should act as guardians of the Earth and reveal themselves to the people. The story can unfold in many ways and if we know anything about Marvel Studios, it's that they never take a specific comic scenario and do not fit it strictly for the big screen. While waiting for more information, you can discover Richard Madden's first images of Ikaris below, thanks to Starlord the Guardian's Twitter account. The photoshopped image of Ikaris comes from u / spideyvegas on Reddit.
