Fans finally got a glimpse of the cast and characters for Marvel’s Eternals at Disney’s D23 Expo on Saturday, and the cast is already making a name for themselves in the same breath as The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy.
After most of the cast appeared on stage alongside Marvel Studio’s president Kevin Feige, a select group hit the red carpet to answer some questions and shed a bit of light as to what to expect from Eternals.
Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, and Barry Keoghan chatted a bit with Variety and joked that some of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s most popular heroes including the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy wouldn’t exist without the Eternals due to the fact they are essentially gods and aided the Celestials in forming humanity, saying:
“We built humanity and we’re here to save humanity because as you know, sometimes in this world we live in, things don’t always go as planned and we are gods, in a way.”
Kumail Nanjiani chimed in:
“Without us, there would be no Avengers. There would be no Guardians of the Galaxy, so you’re welcome Chris Pratt’s character.”
Brian Tyree Henry, who had explained the role the Eternals had in forming humanity earlier in the interview, capped it off with a bit of a challenge to Marvel’s biggest heroes saying “we could destroy them.”

Though Brian Tyree Henry doesn’t make it seem like a conflict between the Eternals and The Avengers or Guardians would be much of a fight, who do you think would win? Is there a chance we see the groups go at it somewhere down the road in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
Plot details for Eternals remain under wraps, however, the story reportedly features a love story between Ikaris and Sersi. Created by Jack Kirby in 1976, the Eternals are a fictional evolutionary offshoot of humanity created by the Celestials over a million years ago. The beings who possess superpowers and longer lifespans were the result of genetic experiments that led to the creation of two divergent races: The Eternals and The Deviants.
Marvel’s Eternals is set to be released on November 6, 2020. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Eternals, and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we learn it.
