The first look at Kumail Nanjiani and Lia McHugh from The Eternals have been revealed thanks to set photos.
Poised to be one of the most expansive films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Eternals will follow a race of cosmic beings who protect Earth from various nefarious powers. In The Eternals, we’ll be seeing Kumail Nanjiani take on the role of Kingo. Kumail Nanjiani is best known for his comedic roles in The Big Sick and Silicon Valley, but he’s now moving to the superhero genre with The Eternals.
Joining Kumail Nanjiani in The Eternals is Lia McHugh, who will be playing Sprite in the upcoming film. The youngest member on The Eternals, Lia McHugh’s Sprite is said to be eternally young. Lia McHugh has starred in a handful of horror films before, but this will be the actress’ first major role in a big-budget tentpole. Lia McHugh and co-star Kumail Nanjiani were both spotted working on The Eternals with fellow star Gemma Chan.

The scene in question seems to be a bittersweet one, as we see Kumail Nanjiani and Gemma Chan hugging. We also see Kumail Nanjiani walking away with some bags, implying that he’s leaving Gemma Chan and Lia McHugh. As for the young Lia McHugh, she seems to be casually sitting on a trunk and playing with her smartphone. Details on The Eternals are slim to none, but the production seems to be nearing its halfwaypoint as the film is poised to hit theatres at the end of the year.

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.
Directed by Chloé Zhao from a script written by Matthew K. Firpo and Ryan Firpo, The Eternals stars Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Gemma Chan, Kit Harington, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, Lia McHugh, Don Lee, and Barry Keoghan.
The Eternals will be released in theaters on November 6, 2020.
