It's a humbling experience to play a superhero in your 50s: Salma Hayek

New Delhi, Oct 20 (PTI) Hollywood star Salma Hayek says she is someone who "dreams big" and she was surprised to finally get to do "Eternals", which fulfils her wish of playing a superhero in a blockbuster movie with a great director like Chloe Zhao.

Hayek said she doesn't look like a traditional superhero the audiences are used to watching on screen. She plays Ajak, the wise and spiritual leader at the heart of the story, who has the ability to heal and is the "bridge" between the Eternals and their creators called the Celestials.

The upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movie revolves around the Eternals, an alien race living on Earth for over 7,000 years, who team up to protect humanity from their evil counterparts, the Deviants.
