Since the first look of the Eternals at the Disney D23 expo in 2019, fans have been left a bit disappointed in some of the costume designs. Most notably that of Ikaris who will be played by Richard Madden, who is most known for his role as Rob Stark in the HBO series Game of Thrones.
The biggest disappointment came with the lack of red in Ikaris’ costume, which has been a staple since he was introduced in the comics. Many fans held hope that the costume would change to introduce some red and we now have some leaked images that show if this has happened.
The leak comes from a range of merchandise called Marvel Legends. This is a series of action figures based on the MCU movie base. The latest line to be added is that of the Eternals. This is the same line of toys that leaked who we believe the main villain of the movie to be.
The packaging for the toys includes an image of Ikaris in the blue and gold costume that has previously been seen. This look as though the red from the comic costume will not be present in the upcoming movie.
The reverse of the packaging also has a description of the character along with a brief overview of his powers.
Moral, kind and charismatic, Ikaris boasts incredible strength, flight, and the ability to project cosmic energy beams from his eyes.
This description of moral, kind and charismatic ties in with what we know of him from the comics so there is nothing too unexpected there. His powers though seem like nothing special, as all Eternals have superhuman strength and flight. So whether that intend to limit the ability of flight to just Ikaris or only a few Eternals is yet to be seen. His power to project cosmic energy from his eyes though is interesting. Again this is an ability Ikaris has in the comics but may also be a way to test the waters on how they would use this ability on another marvel character with a similar ability – Scott Summer, aka Cyclops.
Exactly how these powers will be used in the movie is yet to be seen. Either way, let us know in the comments below what you think of the costume design?
