The first complete trailer for Marvel’s next cosmic epic has been released, offering us our finest look yet at Zhao’s superhero saga.
Eternals stars Gemma Chan as Sersi, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Brian Tyre Henry as Phastos, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Barry Keoghan as Druig, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Barry Keoghan as Druig, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, Salma Hayek as Ajak, and Angelina Jolie as Thena in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Eternals, created by famed comic artist Jack Kirby in 1976, are a lesser-known Marvel Comics property with a lengthy and strange history. Thankfully, the teaser serves as a decent tutorial on who these heroes are and what they’ve been up to for the past 7,000 years. The Eternals are aliens created by the great, godlike Celestials and dispatched to Earth to save mankind from the terrible Deviants, as Chan’s Sersi explains. They’re all immensely powerful and possess unique abilities, and they’ve spent millennia discreetly observing humanity.
The trailer also answers a key question: why didn’t the Eternals volunteer to help take down Thanos if they are so powerful and have been hanging out on Earth for all these years? Dane Whitman, played by Kit Harington of Game of Thrones, is one of the characters who asks this question.
“We were instructed not to interfere in any human conflicts unless Deviants were involved,” Sersi says.
However, as Hayek’s commander Ajak explains, Thanos’ act has had a knock-on effect, and the Eternals must now once again protect humanity from the Deviants.
The new trailer also demonstrates the film’s massive scale and scope, from ancient civilizations to modern-day London to bizarre, unearthly scenes in space. It’s an epic tale that spans thousands of years, but there are elements that echo Zhao’s previous work.
Eternals will hit theaters Nov. 5. Watch the newly released trailer.
