Marvel Studios is introducing a new corner of its universe with the latest trailer for Eternals. The millennia-spanning film centers on the Eternals, based on comic legend Jack Kirby’s sci-fi saga about an immortal alien race of godlike beings.
The latest look at the film reveals much of its plot as well as its characters’ powers, teasing the answers to key questions about who the Eternals answer to, their relationship to Earth and why they ultimately didn’t intervene with Thanos and the snap. It also reveals they’ll be facing off against an evil race of monstrous creatures known as the Deviants, including one of their generals, Kro.
After arriving on Earth 7,000 years ago and spending several centuries apart, the immortal godlike beings will reunite for a cosmic showdown that sees them taking on the evil triggered by Thanos’ deadly plot and the Avengers’ return of billions to the planet. With just a week to stop the fallout from a world-destroying event known as the emergence, the final Eternals trailer confirms the heroes are ready to get involved to save the Earth.
“We have loved these people since the day we arrived,” Angelina Jolie’s Thena says. “When you love something, you protect it.”
Chloé Zhao, the Oscar-winning filmmaker behind best picture winner Nomadland, directs. The film features a sprawling cast that includes Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan, Kumail Nanjiani, Kit Harington, Richard Madden, Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, Lia McHugh, Don Lee and Barry Keoghan.
The trailer comes as Marvel prepares to unveil Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings on Sept. 3, and has Spider-Man: No Way Home slated from Sony on Dec. 17. The studio previously released the first Eternals trailer in May.
Eternals is slated to hit Nov. 5. It is unclear if it will be a theatrical exclusive, or if it will have a hybrid release akin to Black Widow, which hit theaters and Disney+ Premier Access on the same date.
