Thena (Angelina Jolie) was introduced along with her fellow immortal androids in 2021's divisive Eternals, and some newly-revealed concept art for the character has now found its way online.
As you'll see at the link below, some of the costume designs that were considered for the "Goddess of War" were quite different to what we ultimately saw on screen.
During an interview that came out shortly after the movie's release, Jolie was asked about potentially reprising the role, for either a direct sequel or a solo Thena adventure.
"I loved being part of the family, so I have no desire to separate from the family. But I would be happy to play her again and explore even more deeply the struggles that she has. I think it’s fun thinking of where they’ve been over the years. We’ve got thousands of years worth of material. We can take her anywhere. I think that’s fun and I like the idea that we can pop up somewhere, maybe in other Marvel movies."
Will we see an Eternals sequel? There have been conflicting reports, but rumors persist that another film is planned.
MCU sequels are a regular occurrence, of course, but Eternals is the only Marvel Studios movie to drop to "rotten" status on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, and the superhero epic finished up its U.S. run with a disappointing $164.9 million, giving it the lowest domestic haul of any MCU-set movie aside from 2008's The Incredible Hulk ($134M).
Even so, the first film left quite a few dangling plot threads that still haven't been addressed, and it's difficult to imagine Kevin Feige would simply decide to forget about these characters.
