Well Happy Monday to all us Marvel fans! This morning, Marvel Studios, gifted fans with not only a teaser poster for the third film in the MCU’s Phase 4, but also a teaser trailer! Keep reading for all the details!
Marvel Studios’ ETERNALS, directed by Academy Award®–winner Chloé Zhao, welcomes an exciting new team of Super Heroes to the MCU! The epic story, spanning thousands of years, features a group of immortal heroes forced out of the shadows to reunite against mankind’s oldest enemy, The Deviants.
The outstanding ensemble cast includes Richard Madden as the all-powerful Ikaris, Gemma Chan as humankind-loving Sersi, Kumail Nanjiani as cosmic-powered Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as the super-fast Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as the intelligent inventor Phastos, Salma Hayek as the wise and spiritual leader Ajak, Lia McHugh as the eternally young, old-soul Sprite, Don Lee as the powerful Gilgamesh, Barry Keoghan as aloof loner Druig, and Angelina Jolie as the fierce warrior Thena. Kit Harington plays Dane Whitman.
Marvel characters such as Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor have been known to the masses for years. I’ve also loved that Marvel Studios often takes a chance on the “lesser-known” comics property (for lack of a better term!). Marvel certainly hit it out of the park with GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY success! Fans, of course, can hope that the Eternals will see a similar success with their film (films?).
My Marvel-action loving 10 year old very much enjoyed THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER series, eagerly anticipates the return of Loki, and the introduction of Shang-Chi. However, he gives Eternals a pondering “hmmmm” in reaction. I told him, like I tell any Marvel fan, give it a chance. Yes, given the glimpse of this teaser, it may feel different in tone than other super-hero movies. Maybe more of a fantasy vibe? None the less, I’m excited and can’t wait to see more Celestials grace the big screen!
ETERNALS opens in theaters November 5, 2021!
