Welcome back to Stereo Geeks! We’re starting off Season 3 with a review of Marvel’s Eternals. This sprawling epic of a superhero film is diverse, beautiful, and just a bit overburdened by its writing. We talked about why we loved the characters, finally getting South-Asian representation in a superhero film, the queer rep (and whether it worked), and so much more. Confused about the Eternals timeline? Here's Mon's explainer at Collider. Transcripts of episodes are available on our blog. Eternals promo images courtesy of Disney.
