Marvel Releases The First Trailer For Eternals, Slated For Release This Winter

May 28, 2021 | Benjamin Carpenter

The first teaser trailer has been released for Marvel’s upcoming film, Eternals.

Eternals marks the 2nd movie release in the MCU’s 4th phase (with Black Widow being the first) and also marks Marvel’s bold pursuit to create movies based on lesser-known characters. The Eternals have less of a fanbase than the Guardians of the Galaxy did before their cinematic debut in 2014. So, who exactly are The Eternals, and what is this film about?

Eternals, directed by Academy Award-winning Nomadland director Chloé Zhao, follows an immortal alien race who have secretly lived on Earth and have helped shape human history for centuries. This alien race is called The Eternals and after the events of Avengers: Endgame, they are forced out of the shadows to battle their ancient enemy, The Deviants. 

Now, you may be wondering what Deviants are. According to Marvel comics, the short answer is that Deviants are the long-lost cousins of The Eternals and Thanos, the maniacal villain who wiped out half of all life, is a descendant of those Deviants. It’s unclear how this connection will play in the movie and unfortunately, this trailer doesn’t give us any answers but the last 10 seconds do give us a cheeky glimpse into how this movie will be connected to the rest of the MCU.

The movie has an all-star cast of Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan, Salma Hayek, and Kumail Nanjiani. On top of that, the movie reunites two Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Richard Madden. 

Eternals arrives in theaters on November 5th, 2021.
