Leaked toy packaging has revealed the upcoming Eternals movie villain will be Kro, the leader of the Deviants.
Originally scheduled to hit theatres next month the release date has been pushed back to November of 2021 due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. We are still likely a long way off from a trailer and there has been very little news. The most recent being the rumour of Harry Styles taking on the role of Starfox. This has not stopped Marvel from releasing merchandise though in anticipation for the release of the film.
With the release of the merchandise, some leaked images have been revealed. The one of most interest is a character called Kro. What’s even more interesting is the text on the packaging. A powerful Deviant unlike any other the Eternals have faced over the millennia, Kro’s appearance is the harbinger for a global threat. Exactly how they will bring Kro into the mix is yet to be seen but there are a few things we know about the character based on the comics.
Kro is the leader of the deviant race, an offshoot of humanity created by the Celestials. He is one of the first deviants created. Along with the ability to shape-shift, he is immortal and also has superhuman physical abilities.
While we wait for more info to be revealed on the movie, take a look at the image of the leaked toy below. It shows Kro in a form that looks like something out of a horror movie.
