Since Avengers: Endgame, we have been craving another superhero box office smash, and Marvel has delivered with Eternals. Apart of the upcoming MCU Phase 4 selection, Marvel’s Eternals will be based upon the original Jack Kirby comic that follows a fictional race of humanoids – the Eternals – who have secretly lived on Earth for over 7,000 years. Following the events of Endgame, the race created by the Celestials, have to reunite to fight their evil counterparts, the Deviants.
Dropping its second glimpse today, the film boasts an ensemble cast featuring Crazy Rich Asians’ Gemma Chan, Game of Thrones’ Richard Madden and Kit Harington, Spring 21 cover star Salma Hayek and the iconic Angelina Jolie. Having been teased since its filming process began in July 2019, the film is set to be one of (if not) the best MCU movies so far, as the original comic book is known for its expansive cast and compelling storytelling. Set to focus on two of the main characters, Ikaris and Sersi, the film will explore their storyline in the comic books, diving into Ikaris’ journey to earth as a Celestial and his relationship with Sersi.
Directed by Nomandland’s Chloé Zhao, the film is set to have a plethora of guest appearances with Done Lee, Millie Bobby Brown, and Lia McHugh all set to have roles in the film. But with the way Marvel like to do their films, don’t be surprised if you see a wondering Thor or Captain Marvel in the background.
The film is set to land November 5 this year, check out the trailer below…
