Fans of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) must be looking forward to the new films that will air, including “Eternals.” Today, Monday (24/5), Marvel Studios officially released a new trailer for the film.
The first “Eternals” trailer reveals a new look at the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film. Based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, “Eternals” follows a team of ancient Celestial aliens who have lived quietly on Earth for 7,000 years, but must reunite to protect the world from evil Deviants.
The teaser trailer this time mainly features many practical real-world locations, giving a more down-to-earth superhero film feel. But there’s still plenty of classic Marvel action and special effects to see in the teaser, with the “Eternals” showing off their power, shown in gold CGI effects.
The teaser also shows that the “Eternals” characters arrived on Earth in ancient times, then lived among humans for thousands of years as society progressed. A number of characters are teased in this trailer, including Dane Whitman, who is seen in one scene.
The clip also shows an event that requires the Eternals to become involved in conflict, even though most of it is just guiding humans from behind the scenes. The trailer even references the Avengers, with Sprite asking who they think will lead the superhero team in the absence of Captain Rogers and Iron Man.
“Eternals” stars Angelina Jolie as Thena, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Lia McHugh as Sprite and Don Lee as Gilgamesh. Additional stars were announced later, including Kit Harington as Dane Whitman, Gemma Chan as Sersi and Barry Keoghan as Druig.
Meanwhile, “Eternals” was directed by Chloé Zhao, who won Best Picture at the 2020 Academy Awards for “Nomadland”. This film was supposed to be released on November 6, 2020, but was postponed to November 5, 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
