New Marvel’s “Eternals” Footage Reveals Super Group’s Abilities
It might only be half a minute long, but this new look at Chloé Zhao’s Eternals packs a punch. Marvel Studios revealed this fresh footage on Sunday, giving us a glimpse of Zhao’s millennia-spanning epic. We get to see some of the abilities of the titular Eternals, the extremely powerful ancient beings who have been quietly embedded with us mere mortals on Earth, here to protect us should the malevolent creatures known as the Deviants show up. Guess what, folks? The Deviants show up, and the new spot shows us the powers of Eternals like Ikaris (Richard Madden), who has laser vision and quips that he doesn’t wear a cape (throwing some shade at the Avengers), Kingo (Kumail Nanjiani), and Thena (Angelina Jolie) and her golden sword. The Eternals will need to muster all the potency they’ve got to stave off the Deviants.
We open on Sersi (Gemma Chan), explaining the Eternals mission on Earth. We know that the main action of Eternals takes place after the events of Endgame and that our heroes will in fact need to save humanity from those aforementioned Deviants. The new spot gives us our first look at Gilgamesh (Don Lee), who lands a massive punch against one of the Deviants. We also get a glance at the MCU’s first openly gay couple, when Ikrais meets Phastos (Brian Tyree Henry) and his husband (played by Haaz Sleiman). They have a son who is very enthused to meet Ikaris.
Zhao directs from her own script, which she co-wrote with Ryan and Kaz Firpo, and Patrick Burleigh. The film will take us all the way back to before even Thanos was born, and will broaden the ever-expanding MCU to cosmic proportions.
Take a look at the new footage below. Eternals hits theaters on November 5.
