Marvel Teases Its Epic, History-Spanning Superhero Sci-Fi Opera ‘Eternals’

The next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has some incredibly big shoes to fill. After all, the Infinity Saga accounts for two of the top five highest-grossing movies of all time, and many other Marvel movies (especially the more recent ones, like Black Panther, Spider-Man: Far From Home, and Captain Marvel) have settled amongst the top 50. However, if the newly-released teaser trailer for Eternals is any indication, Marvel is ready to dive head-first into the next epic chapter.

It was already well-known that this film was stacked with talent — including Academy Award-winning director Chloé Zhao at the helm, alongside a cast that includes Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Gemma Chan, Kit Harrington, Kumail Nanjiani, Richard Madden, Bryan Tyree Henry, and more. But it looks like the story itself is also shaping up to be something quite legendary, tracing the titular Eternals back to when humanity was little more than cavemen armed with sticks and rocks through the modern day. What dangers have wrenched these immortal beings from hiding have yet to be unveiled, but expectations are undoubtedly high — especially considering that The Mad Titan Thanos and his dreaded snap couldn’t even draw them out. We’ll have to just wait and see, come the November release.
