While Marvel Studios is all set to launch the ten superheroes which include Ikaris, Sersi, Kingo, Gilgamesh, Phastos, Thena, Sprite, Makkari, Druig, Ajak, and Dane Whitman also known as Black Knight in its upcoming superhero blockbuster The Eternals, producer Nate Moore reveals as to what the superhero lovers could expect from the film's antagonists. Though his discussion about Deviants and the various differences between them in the film from the comic version with ComicBook.com took place in early 2020 during his visit to the set of the film, there has been no indication of this changing, although the Studios is better at keeping such secrets than many other studios.
Moore said that not every Deviant in the film will look similar as the fans have seen over the years in comic books "As you know, the Deviants in the comics are called the Changing People, no two Deviants look the same, So in our film, no two Deviants will look the same. But you do see as sort of these parasitic predators, when they do kill off a predator in the film, they do take the shape of that predator. So they're sort of bat-like Deviants. There's a wolf-like Deviant. There's a Deviant that look like all sorts of creatures from myth and legend in history. And these are the Deviants that the Eternals were sent again to eradicate, to help humanity advance. Because the Deviants are the Changing People, they come in all different shapes and sizes," he explained to Comic Book.com.
Moore went on to explain the evolution of Deviants and how they are different from each other. He further talks about Kro, the leader of the Deviants, and the mystery behind his evolution. "Some are small as a human. Some are as big as an ocean liner, which is a lot of fun for us to play with as we sort of build set pieces in action," he said. "But in the modern-day, the Deviants have evolved. And this is a sort of early concept of Kro, who is the leader of the Deviants. He is the most intelligent of the Deviants. He is the only Deviant who can speak and that evolution will be one of the mysteries the Eternals have to uncover. Why is he able to do this? Why does he look humanoid when all the other Deviants to some degree, are monstrous? He has these sort of incredible tendrils that can extend from his fingers and other parts of his body, and he becomes a real problem for the Eternals."
