The Eternals, which fans of Marvel productions are eagerly waiting for, was released in 2021. Adapted from the comics of its creator, Jack Kirby, and whose story goes back millions of years, the movie focuses on people who have superpowers by changing their genetics by cosmic beings called Celestials. But with the creation of the Deviants, who were also a ferocious race, two separate races emerged that would have been in conflict with each other throughout history. The leading roles of this exciting story are two strong women; We see Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek sharing.
Shown as one of the most ambitious Marvel productions to date with its story and shooting techniques, the filming locations are just as remarkable as these two.
