One of the highlights of ETERNALS is the presence of a series of casts containing popular names, such as Gemma Chan (Sersi), Richard Madden (Ikaris), Kumail Nanjiani (Kingo), Lia McHugh (Sprite), Brian Tyree Henry (Phastos), Lauren Ridloff (Makkari), Barry Keoghan (Druig), Don Lee (Gilgamesh), Salma Hayek (Ajak) Angelina Jolie (Thena) to Zain Al Rafeea, a child actor who is on the rise thanks to his role in the film CAPERNAUM.
ETERNALS also presents a number of superheroes with super powers who will fight The Deviants, the main antagonist in the film.
- The New Leader of The Avengers?
In the ETERNALS franchise, none of the AVENGERS figures will appear. But what is unique about the 2-minute trailer is that the Eternals briefly discussed Captain America’s retirement and the death of Iron Man, which is a reference for AVENGERS: END GAME.
And at one point, one of the Eternals members, Ikaris, casually said that he could replace Captain America and Iron Man to lead the Avengers. Suddenly the chatter was greeted with laughter by the other Eternals.
The question is, is Ikaris serious about his statement? Or is it just jokes? For those of you who don’t know, the character played by Richard Madden is the leader of the Eternals who has super abilities, can even fly and shoot lasers from his eyes.
ETERNALS is planned to be broadcast simultaneously in the nearest cinema in November 2021. But before that, you better watch the trailer below.
Who are The Eternals? They’re a group of superheroes who were first introduced in the comics in the 1970s.
“Eternal is a group of immortals who have been on Earth for 35,000 years. They’ve been there amongst the MCU,” said Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige at 2019’s San Diego Comic-Con.
Introduced in 1976, the Jack Kirby comic introduces three different groups that were created by celestial Gods: the Deviants (a group that was constantly at war), humans, and the immortal Eternals of which there are more than 30. Over the years, there have been several iterations of the group.
Feige announced eight of the Eternals who will be in the upcoming movie at SDCC 2019 and an additional three characters at Disney’s D23 Expo in August 2019.
A lot of the characters are gender-swapped from their original versions. Since they’re all cut from the same cloth, the majority of them all have similar superhuman abilities, including super strength and the ability to fly.
