New “Eternals” Footage Reveals Epic Battle Between Immortal Beings
Some new Eternals footage is available for your viewing pleasure as we inch ever closer to the release date for Oscar-winner Chloé Zhao’s first Marvel film. The new spot, titled “Change,” directly links to the events in Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame, making it clear that although the Eternals weren’t active when the Avengers were fighting Thanos to save the world, they were, of course, quite aware of the problem. Salma Hayek’s Ajak, one of the titular immortal beings embedded quietly on Earth, describes how Thanos’s homicidal quest to eradicate half of all life (and then all of it in Endgame) has brought Earth to the attention of the Deviants. Now, the Eternals, who had up until this point been quietly biding their time, need to spring into action to defend the planet from the Deviants, a race of equally powerful immortals created by the very same beings who made the Eternals, the Celestials.
“Humanity once believed we were Gods,” Ajak says at the halfway point of the new TV spot, “with what this planet now faces, they will believe again.” To further connect to the heroism of the Avengers, Ikaris (Richard Madden) even steals their line and modifies it, saying “Eternals assemble,” as these interstellar superheroes gather to fight the Deviants and save humanity.
Eternals hits theaters on November 5. Check out the new spot below.
