Click below to see the trailer.
Plot Synopsis: Marvel Studios’ “Eternals” welcomes an exciting new team of Super Heroes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The epic story, spanning thousands of years, features a group of immortal heroes forced out of the shadows to reunite against mankind’s oldest enemy, The Deviants. The outstanding ensemble cast includes Richard Madden as the all-powerful Ikaris, Gemma Chan as humankind-loving Sersi, Kumail Nanjiani as cosmic-powered Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as the super-fast Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as the intelligent inventor Phastos, Salma Hayek as the wise and spiritual leader Ajak, Lia McHugh as the eternally young, old-soul Sprite, Don Lee as the powerful Gilgamesh, Barry Keoghan as aloof loner Druig, and Angelina Jolie as the fierce warrior Thena. Kit Harington plays Dane Whitman.
What do you all think of the trailer? It definitely looks like Zhao has retained her signature filmmaking style and applied it to a larger scale with obviously, the largest budget she’s ever had to work with. I’m still unsure I’m getting the best sense of what the story is here, but this is an intriguing teaser that will indeed have the internet excited as far as character introductions and visuals go. Hearing Richard Madden, “The King in the North” saying he could lead the Avengers now and everyone laughing at that notion was a nice final touch. Here’s to hoping we get to learn and see more in the weeks ahead of its November release. What do you think? Let us know your thoughts though in the comments below or on our Twitter account.
