2 Cents Critic Podcast – Eternals | Directed by Chloé Zhao

Tune in for Arthur’s coverage of Eternals, the 26th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. More importantly, it’s the MCU flick that features the most diverse cast thus far in contrast to all the straight white men who have dominated the majority of this superhero franchise for the longest time. But it also received gobs of critical backlash and currently holds the spot of being the lowest-ranked MCU movie on the Tomatometer with a critic score of 48% (by the way, it does have an audience score of 78%). How much of the criticism is bull and how much of it is valid? Aside from talking about that, Arthur goes on to heap praise on Michael Giacchino’s theme for The Batman, slam the white cishet male critics who abhorred the inclusivity of Eternals, and weigh in on the necessity of fleshed-out depictions of mental health.
