New “Eternals” Footage Hypes “Greatest Warriors the World Has Ever Known”
In a new TV spot for Marvel’s upcoming Eternals, one of their members claims they’re “the greatest warriors the world has ever known.” That would be Kingo (Kumail Nanjiani), talking to a cameraman and doing a pretty serious bit of self-promotion. The claim seems a little hyperbolic considering the Eternals were a no-show while the Avengers were fighting Thanos and his intergalactic hordes. The Eternals didn’t just sit one fight out, they sat out three catastrophic brawls with Thanos when you add up Avengers, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame. They also didn’t pop up to help out in Sokovia when the Avengers were fighting Ultron.
What we’ll learn in director Chloé Zhao’s Eternals is that these literal superbeings were sitting out those fights because they have been tasked with protecting humanity against the Deviants and the Deviants alone. We’ll find out just how bad those Deviants are—and why they’re more dangerous than even Thanos—when the action of Eternals gets underway.
The new footage reveals some of the Eternals’ abilities, and they do seem like a pretty fearsome bunch. Those powers include laser eyes from Ikaris (Richard Madden), extreme strength from Gilgamesh (Don Lee), and the universe’s most killer sword from Thena (Angelina Jolie). There’s a tremendous amount of excitement swirling around Eternals considering the bonkers cast and the fact that Oscar-winner Chloé Zhao directed the film.
Joining Nanjiani, Madden, Jolie, and Lee are Gemma Chan, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, Barry Keoghan, Kit Harrington, Lauren Ridloff, and Lia McHugh star.
Check out the new TV spot below. Eternals arrives in theaters on November 5.
