Actor Ma Dong-seok plans to continue working with Marvel after ‘The Eternals’.
November 10th Star Newsreported that Ma Dong-seok signed a contract with Marvel to appear in several more Marvel films as Gilgamesh in addition to ‘The Eternals’. It is said that they not only signed a contract like this from the time they first signed a contract to appear in ‘The Eternals’, but also discussed follow-up appearances after that.
‘The Eternals’, in which Ma Dong-seok appeared as Gilgamesh with superhuman powers, was released on November 3rd. In an interview with Korean reporters ahead of the release of ‘The Eternals’, Ma Dong-seok said, “I think I will be able to continue working with Marvel through this movie.” I wrote it down and it made me sad.
Ma Dong-seok, who is usually nicknamed ‘Marble’, has a rough impression and appearance in ‘The Eternals’, but appears as a cooking character wearing a cute apron. It also uses the so-called ‘playing’ action, which was introduced like a patent for Ma Dong-seok in a domestic movie. Even so, the amount of the main story was almost entirely in the teaser released before the release, so there was a growing suspicion that Gilgamesh, played by Ma Dong-seok, was a one-time character.
In this regard, Ma Dong-seok’s side said that he could not reveal the specifics as he had to keep the terms of his contract with Marvel, but there was a hint in his character Gilgamesh in ‘The Eternals’. Gilgamesh is portrayed as immortal in the film. In order to cast Ma Dong-seok as Gilgamesh, Marvel changed mythical characters to Asian characters, and it is known that many settings were tailored to Ma Dong-seok’s image.
