Director Chloé Zhao is aware of the mixed reviews her Marvel movie, "Eternals" received. The 39-year-old believes that her "learning process is a very intimate affair" and anything aside from that is "just a part of the ecosystem."

Zhao explained that she wasn't really concerned about the mixed reviews.

"I think the need for consensus is a hindrance for any authentic creative process," she told Empire on Tuesday. "Just like it’s a hindrance for living an authentic life as a person. I have been on the receiving end of somewhat consensus, and divisiveness about my work."

The director revealed that these reviews didn't have any "real influence" on her as an artist. She went on to explain, "Because every time I’m lucky enough to create, I learn from the process. From what I’ve succeeded [at], and what I’ve failed [at]."

"But that learning process is a very intimate affair," Zhao added. "Anything beyond that, for me, it’s just a part of the ecosystem that exists because of the nature of the industry we’re in. Like a flower or a rock, I acknowledge and appreciate their presence. But that’s as far as it goes."

The director also explained that the original plan was to release "Eternals" right after "Avengers: Endgame" in 2019 and "not at a time when everyone is having an existential crisis" due to coronavirus pandemic.

"The film itself is about existential crisis, both for humanity and God. So I think we definitely felt it was coming," she added.

Before "Eternals," the director was known for making the western drama "Nomadland" released in 2020. The movie won Academy Award for Best Picture in 2021, with Zhao also bagging an award for Best Director.

"Eternals" earned over $400 million at the box office while the budget of the movie was $200 million. The movie has a 6.4 rating out of 10 on the IMDb platform and 47% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Considering upcoming Marvel movies, fans will be treated with "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness," which is slated to release on May 6. "Thor: Love and Thunder" will release on July 8.
