Marvel Studios has revealed the first footage from the Chloé Zhao-directed Eternals movie.
Our first look at Chloé Zhao’s Eternals movie is finally here thanks to an epic sizzle reel showing off Marvel’s Phase 4 slate. There’s only about ten seconds of Eternals footage that’s light on action and much less revealing than what you’d see in a trailer, but the sneak peek does include most of the film’s lead characters, including Gemma Chan’s Cerci, who was recently described as the lead of the enseble by Marvel’s Kevin Feige.
You can check out the Eternals footage in the video below at the 2:20 mark.
Jack Kirby created the title in 1976. In the comics, the Eternals are a fictional evolutionary offshoot of humanity who possess superpowers and longer lifespans than normal humans. Created by the Celestials over a million years ago, the superpowered beings were the result of genetic experiments that led to the creation of two divergent races: The Eternals and The Deviants.
Often defending Earth from their monstrous counterparts, the Eternals became embroiled in a civil war amongst themselves over whether or not they should conquer the other races. One faction was led by Kronos and the other by his warlike brother named Uranos, with Kronos’ side ultimately winning the conflict while Uranos and his followers were exiled.
Chloé Zhao is directing Eternals from a script written by Matthew and Ryan Firpo. The cast of the Marvel Studios project includes Gemma Chan as Sersi, Kit Harington as Dane Whitman, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, Angelina Jolie as Thena, and Barry Keoghan as Druig.
Eternals is set to hit theaters on November 5, 2021. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
