With Marvel Studios’ Eternals filming in London for the past week, fans have been privy to first looks at many of the project’s stars, including Kumail Nanjiani and Kit Harington. Well, more are on the way as the first look at Richard Madden’s Ikaris has surfaced online.
The images feature Madden’s character levitating above the ground via wires in what appears to be an extensive battle sequence. Fellow stars, including Kit Harington and Barry Keoghan, were also spotted on set alongside the Game of Thrones star.

Ikaris was a third-generation member of the Eternals, an evolutionary offshoot of humanity who possessed extraordinarily long life spans and superhuman powers. He was born over 20,000 years ago to two members of the Polar Eternals, the group of Eternals living in the Eternal city of Polaria in what is now Siberia.
Madden is best known for his role as Robb Stark in the hit HBO series Game of Thrones. His other credits include Disney’s Cinderella, Rocketman, and the critically-acclaimed BBC thriller Bodyguard. Last year, Madden appeared in Sam Mendes’ war film 1917 as Lieutenant Blake.
Recently, Marvel Studios released the official synopsis for Eternals, teasing an epic showdown between the titular heroes and the villainous Deviants. The description reads:
Marvel Studios’ The Eternals features an exciting new team of Super Heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ancient aliens who have been living on Earth in secret for thousands of years. Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, an unexpected tragedy forces them out of the shadows to reunite against mankind’s most ancient enemy, The Deviants.
