Marvel Releases First Look At The Eternals


Bon Fire Night 2021

Yesterday Marvel gave us a Marvellous homage video to their MCU franchise but this video also included many teasers of what's to come next for Marvel Phase 4. One of these teasers was about the lesser known species called the Eternals.

The first shot we get is Lebanese/Spanish Mexican actress Salma Hayek as the gender swapped Ajak wearing a cow girl hat on a horse.

This is followed by a close up shot of Lia McHugh's Sprite and Gemma Chan's Sersi about to hold hands before cutting to a wide shot of the same scene featuring Barry Keoghan as Druig, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Angelina Jolie as Thena and Brian Tyree Henry's Phastos all present. With the voice over narration stating: "If you love something, you fight for it". This could indicate a strong love story between characters maybe hinting at Then relationship with the enemy Deviant Kro? Sersi romance with human characters like Black Knight? Ikaris' regret over losing his son and wife? it could allude to anything from the comics.

Next shot during that quote is several members of the Eternals standing together in civilian attire likely an early point in the movie where they start to assemble as a team again. Likely leaving behind the life they've built with the humans to face a greater threat. What this threat could be? likely the celestials. Might remember the severed head of one celestial showing up in Guardians of the Galaxy called Knowhere. Here we have our first look at Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Richard Madden as Ikaris and Don Lee as Gilgamesh.

The next shot show Thena spinning her swords whilst fighting what we can only guess is a Deviant of some kind. Possible even Kro her lover and enemy (its a complicated situation between the two of them). The shot cuts to a close up of her holding her glowing sword by her face ready for action.


Angelina Jolie as Thena. Ready for action.

The teaser ends with the Title: Eternals and the new expected release date being 2021 Bon-Fire night aka 5th of November 2021. Who else is excited? also on a humorous note Bon-Fire night is significant to Richard Madden's paternal and maternal ancestry, if you have no idea what we're banging on about? Check out our Eternals Who's Who article from 2019. Oh and here's one last shot featuring Lauren Ridloff's Makkari Speeding in to join Thena, Gilgamesh, Ikaris and Kingo all in their full Eternals costumes on set of what looks to be some kind of historical Asian setting. Judging by the background it looks like an Indo-Iranic empire setting. Maybe Gupta or Sassanian Era setting.
