Marvel has finally dropped information on their much awaited movie from phase 4 of the MCU, ‘The Eternals’ which features a cast that we’re all dying to see.
On Monday, Marvel Studios released a video titled ‘Marvel Studios Celebrates The Movies’, which announced the release dates and titles of its Phase Four movies. The three-minute sneak peek showed clips from the old movies and eventually showed glimpses of the upcoming movies and shows of phase four.
The Eternals Cast
Marvel Studios has offered fans a first look at Oscar-winning filmmaker Chloe Zhao’s Eternals, which has Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Richard Madden (Game of Thrones), Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley), and Gemma Chan (Crazy Rich Asians) in it’s main star cast.
In the movie, Angelina Jolie, who plays the role of Thena, is a fierce warrior Eternal who can form any weapon out of cosmic energy, and in a little clip from the video that was shared by the studios, we see Jolie wielding a magic sword and Hayek on a horse.
Salma Hayek will be playing the role of their leader Ajak who has healing abilities, while Madden is tactical leader Ikaris who can fly and project cosmic energy out of his eyes. Nanjiani is Kingo, who can shoot out cosmic energy from his hands, and Chan is Sersi who can manipulate matter.
In the comics, the Eternals are creatures who were part of the same process that led to the creation of sentient life on Earth. They spend much of their time flitting between planets, warring among themselves while also occasionally protecting humankind from their nemeses, the monster-like Deviants.
The movie is based on a group of superheroes who made their first appearance in Marvel comics in 1976. Following the events of 2019’s Avengers: Endgame, an unexpected tragedy brings the Eternals out of hiding to reunite against mankind’s most ancient enemy, the Deviants.
Eternals is set to release on November 5 in the US, but the India-specific Eternals teaser reveals that the Marvel movie will release in October here. No date has been confirmed for it’s release in India, but it will likely be before November 5
