In response to boyfriend Harry Styles’ BTS photos, Marvel director Olivia Wilde says she’s ‘obviously’ watching Eternals.
Olivia Wilde, the director of Marvel’s The Avengers, has stated unequivocally that she is “obviously” watching Eternals now that it is available on Disney(plus), and we know that she is more motivated than most to do so.
Wilde commented on an Instagram post by Eternals star Gemma Chan that included photos of Chan posing behind the scenes with singer Harry Styles (who joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Thanos’ brother Eros) during the production of Eternals, saying, “Watching now obviously.”
If you haven’t been keeping up with celebrity news in the last year, Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles have been dating since they met on the set of Wilde’s new film, Don’t Worry Darling.
Styles is a co-star in Wilde’s film (in which Marvel actress Florence Pugh plays the lead), which began filming in November 2020; Wilde and Styles announced their relationship in January 2021.
Wilde and Styles met on set of Don’t Worry Darling in November of 2020, the same month Wilde ended her nearly ten-year relationship with Ted Lasso star Jason Sudeikis.
When discussing their split in public, both Wilde and Sudeikis (who have a son and a daughter together) have maintained civility and mutual respect.
Olivia Wilde’s professional life has changed dramatically in the last few years, as she transitioned from being a successful actress in front of the camera to a successful director behind it.
Her first film (the “female Superbad” coming-of-age tale Booksmart) didn’t do particularly well at the box office ((dollar)25 million on a (dollar)6 million budget), but it wowed critics (96 percent on Rotten Tomatoes) and became a cult hit with audiences.
Sony has put their faith in Olivia Wilde’s directorial vision, appointing her to direct an upcoming Spider-Man Universe film; following Spider-Man: No Way Home, fans are now excited about what that project could be.
“I’m just honored to be among this wave of women who are showing up and saying, ‘We’re not only going to step in and try to tell this story like men do, we’re actually going to reframe the stories themselves,” Wilde said of her Marvel (Spider-Woman?) project to Entertainment Weekly.
“And, as far as I can tell, the industry is enthusiastic about it.”
