Angelina Jolie has surprised her fans with her new blonde look in the action-packed trailer for the new Marvel Cinematic Universe film Eternals. 

The actor has stunned fans in the trailer for the new film with a dramatic new 'do. The star is well known for her beautiful brown hair that is typically styled in a long hairstyle, but for this film, she has opted for a bright blonde look in a shoulder-length cut.

Fans are extremely excited to see this film but many of them have been surprised by the star’s new look. Many have even taken to social media to share their delight, one fan commented, “Angelina Jolie is serving goddess content as Thena in Eternals trailer.” Another fan said, “Angelina Jolie is so gorgeous with that blonde hair."

If you are wondering 'what color should I dye my hair?' then this look might just be your inspiration. The mid-length medium hairstyle is the perfect summer look and with the right hair toner, you can get this bright blonde look and avoid brassy tones.

Although Angelina was blonde for her role in Girl, Interrupted—a performance that won her the Academy Award for Best-Supporting Actress for her portrayal of sociopath Lisa Rowe—her new character, Thena, couldn’t be more different from her previous role.

The trailer did not give much information about Thena’s personality and primarily showed her in elegant costumes with perfect hair teaming up with the rest of the Eternals to fight evil. Angelina looked gorgeous as an ethereal being that manages to look amazing even when she is swinging a weapon around her head. 

The new MCU film is directed by Chloe Zhao, who recently won the best director Academy Award for her film Nomadland. Angelina stars as Thena alongside an all-star cast of Gemma Chan, Salma Hayek, Kumail Nanjiani, Kit Harington, Richard Madden, and Brian Tyree Henry.

The film follows an ancient race of immortal Aliens called the Eternals who protect humanity from their evil counterparts the Deviants. The movie also takes place after the events of the MCU film Avengers: Endgame that was released in 2019. So you may want to watch the 23 Marvel movies in order – by timeline and release date before you embark on this new storyline.

A specific release date has yet to be announced, but it has been revealed that the film will be in cinemas in November 2021. This is just a few months after the release of Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow which is the next film to be released in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
