New “Eternals” Featurette Introduces 10 New Marvel Superheroes
Now that some critics have gotten a chance to see Oscar-winning director Chloé Zhao’s Eternals during this week’s premiere at the El Capitan Theater in Los Angeles, we’ve heard just how sweeping, sumptuous, and unique this particular MCU film is. But you’re still probably not quite sure just who these new Marvel superheroes are, even if you’re aware of the people playing them. A new featurette from Marvel is here to help on that front, giving us a brief description of just what each of the Eternals are capable of.
The new video will introduce you to all ten of the MCU’s newest (and yet oldest, in terms of age) superheroes. They include Sersi (Gemma Chan), who is able to manipulate matter, and who has had a long-running on-again, off-again relationship with Ikaris (Richard Madden). Ikaris, meanwhile, is described by Madden himself as the “loyal soldier,” able to shoot laser beams out of his eyes. Phastos (Brian Tyree Henry) can assemble anything out of any type of technology. Thena (Angelina Jolie) is the Goddess of War and can manifest nearly any type of weapon. Gilgamesh (Ma Dong-seok) has an extremely strong punch. Don’t laugh, it looks like the guy punches the Eternals out of a lot of tricky situations.
The list goes on, including Makari (Lauren Ridloff), Sprite (Lia McHugh), Kingo (Kumail Nanjiani), Druig (Barry Keoghan), and Ajak (Salma Hayek). It is, without a doubt, the most diverse cast in MCU history, and each of these new superheroes will get a chance to shine.
Check out the new featurette below. Eternals arrives in theaters on November 5.
