This November, the third film in the MCU’s Phase Four will introduce us to a new group of Marvel superheroes, the Eternals. A brand new trailer for the film just dropped. What does it look like? Does it spoil anything? What’s the reaction? Check it out for yourself and hear my reaction to it below.
First of all, the Eternals are a fairly large and diverse group, which is pretty cool. There are 10 members and they are all unique in their own right. The cast is terrific, some big names include Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Richard Madden, Kit Harington and Kumail Nanjiani to name a few.
Luckily, the trailer doesn’t give away any spoilers, in fact it reveals very little about the story. It basically showcases the Eternals group and their look and some of their superpowers. Gemma Chan’s character Sersi is involved romantically with the apparent leader of the group, Ikaris, played by Madden. So it’s fairly evident there will be a romantic angle.
It appears they are settling into a new life among a new civilization. It appears they come from another planet or space, based on the first images in the trailer where they arrive in a spaceship-like object.
I liked the trailer. I’m excited to see the film. My favorite part was the very last part of the trailer where they talk about the fallen Avengers and make a joke about taking over the group. Nice touch there. It’s a big reveal that they are part of the Avengers universe and timeline.
ETERNALS opens on November 5th
