By hiring Academy Award-winner Chloe Zhao to helm its much-awaited Eternals and handle the cinematic introduction of ten new superheroes in its canon, Marvel has not lost its marbles.
And no, they aren’t sending the MCU in the arthouse direction of Nomadland and The Rider, the two most notable Zhao-directed films to date. But rather, putting an important and potentially gold mine of a new franchise into the hands of a filmmaker who clearly has the chops to pull off the action and special effects necessary, but also, more crucially, put the emphasis on the human side of things.
In the post-Avengers era of the MCU, this is an encouraging move on the part of producer Kevin Feige, and one bound to pay off with fans, if not necessarily add devotees of Zhao’s previous more austere work to the legions of MCU fanatics.
