The Extreme Measures Marvel Took To Keep The Secrets Of ‘Eternals’

Within a span of just 2 weeks, our nearest movie theaters will be adorned with the 26th Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, Eternals. The latter half of 2021 has proven to be an excellent period for Marvel Studios as they have made their comeback to the silver screens with Black Widow and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The release of Eternals was pushed back a year due to the COVID pandemic, but Marvel released the final trailer earlier in August.

With an all-star cast and an Oscar-winning director at the helm, fans have high hopes for Eternals ever since the early reactions were dropped from the premiere night. Salma Hayek and Lauren Ridloff have recently revealed the extreme lengths the makers of the film took to ensure things stayed under wraps. It turns out even the stars themselves were clueless about what went on when they were filming. They admit to getting frustrated from all the secrecy on the sets. 

Apparently, a man would drop off their scripts on their doorsteps in the middle of the night.

“They had a man in a trench coat — I’m not making this up, I’m not kidding — a man in a trench coat who’d come over to my house at 11 at night with new script pages, in a manila envelope,” Lauren spoke with Elle.

The man would take away the old script papers and exchange them with their new script.

While Lauren Ridloff laughed the situation off, Salma Hayek expressed her disappointment about the whole thing. “It freaked me out and I hated it and I was angry about it. They didn’t want me to keep the script. I’d make my notes and they’d take it away. They give you another one, but they take the [old] one. I like to keep my stuff,” said Salma.

She even claims to have tried to explain things to her husband about what went around on the film’s set but to her dismay, it was all too complicated for François to decipher. 

Seems like all secrets of Eternals and Celestials will be out once Eternals hits theaters on November 5.
