Normally I wouldn’t since it’s a good mystery best experienced in the comic itself. But I see the issue 35 cover dropped today, so I guess I can confirm that Phyla, Monica, Noh-Varr, Genis-Vell, and Mar-vell all play a role in this story,” Thompson said. “But all is not what it seems, so be careful in getting too comfortable in that! “Last of the Marvels is chock full of major characters, but despite the star power, Thompson assures they all get their time in the limelight.”I don’t know that anyone I wanted to use was ‘off the board’ so much as there’s only so much you can fit into a four or five issue story arc and have it land properly and also give everyone in the story a chance to shine,” Thompson said. “One of my greatest weaknesses is that I get excited about using characters and cram too many in and then nobody gets to shine as much as I’d like.”
For Sleiman, Eternals is just the latest in a slew of tentpole productions that are revolutionizing and pushing for positive portrayals of LGBTQ+ people in the media. He points to the Oscar-winning Moonlight and Boy Erased, the Lucas Hedges No Time to Die starrer about conversion therapy, as other films moving the needle.Audiences are left to question how Eddie and Venom teleport into the MCU. The yellow boom resembles the putting-the-genie-back-in-the-bottle magic of Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) glimpsed in the trailer for No Way Home, where the sorcerer warns Parker about attempts to reconceal his secret identity: “Be careful what you wish for.”
As for what Thompson hopes fans get from The Last of the Marvels once the story is complete, it comes down to Carol’s place amongst the greats and showing why she belongs there.”I don’t think it’s rocket science – it’s simple that the Captain Marvels past and present are absolute badasses deserving of our love and attention. And a little bit selfishly, that Carol has long ago proved herself as an incredible Captain Marvel – that like those that came before her – and may come after her – she’s a worthy hero that never gives up and honors the name in all her actions…well, ALMOST all. Nobody’s perfect,” Thompson said.Now, we would be remiss not to ask about a certain pairing that got Cap fans and the internet as a whole talking, that being the pairing of Cap and Doctor Strange. Since then Carol and Rhodey are back together, but we had to ask if Doc will be in her orbit again anytime soon, as well as what she thought of the reaction to the storyline.
