Nate Moore, the producer of Eternals has hinted that a “super cool” actor will be voicing the supervillain Kro. The movie will release on November 5, and it will introduce the audience to a team of superpowered beings. They have directed human beings for more than 7,000 years. This is the third entry in MCU Phase 4 and stars Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kit Harington, Salma Hayek, Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, Brian Tyree Henry, and Dong-seok Ma.
Who are the supervillains in Eternals?
Eternals shows a group of supervillains who are monstrous creatures called Deviants. Just like Eternals, Deviants are also created by Celestials as a result of early experiments on humanity. Kro, also known as Warlord Kro, is the leader of Deviants. This shapeshifter Deviant has an on-again-off-again relationship with Thena. Angelina Jolie plays Thena in Eternals.
Nate Moore hints “Super Cool” actor voicing Kro
In an interview with ScreenRant, Nate Moore said that a “super cool” actor will voice Kro in the movie. However, he kept sidestepping the topic and discussed other aspects of the movie too. He didn’t say anything about the official casting for the voicing the CGI character, however, said the actor is “super cool”.
Dan Stevens is long-rumored to voice Kro in Eternals. He is best known for his roles in Downton Abbey and Legion. He was previously associated with Disney for the 2017 live-action adaptation movie Beauty and the Beast. Stevens plays the Beast in the movie. The rumor comes after he was spotted in a behind-the-scenes Instagram post from the sets of the movie in London. Also, in a recent interview, he almost confirmed his involvement in Eternals by saying “Kro comment”.
Two reasons why the casting hasn’t been confirmed!
There could be several reasons why the final casting hasn’t been confirmed for the role. However, two reasons seem to be more important. First, since the actor only gives his voice to the character, they might swap the performer at the last moment. Hence, they want to commit to announcing the actor for the role. Second, the actor might make a big in-person appearance in the movie which sounds to be a more plausible and exciting prospect.
If Dan Stevens does voice Kro, it will be an exciting opportunity for the actor to play a huge part in MCU.
