After teasing fans with a brief snippet in the Marvel Phase 4 reel, the makers dropped the first tease of the superhero saga. This one will turn back the clock the dawn of civilization and will see a group of immortal beings help shape the course of human history.
“Throughout the years we have never interfered, until now,” says one of the immortals in a voice-over.
The epic story, spanning thousands of years, features a group of immortal beings forced out of the shadows to reunite against mankind’s oldest enemy – The Deviants.
The teaser gives us glimpses of their characters, their costumes and sets the bread crumb trail of the events set to unfold. Besides the action, the teaser hints at a bit of romance too between Richard Madden‘s all-powerful Ikaris and Gemma Chan‘s Sersi.
With Kumail Nanjiani’s Kingo channelling his Bollywood groove, the clip offers many references to Indian culture and traditions.
The cast also features 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.
We also get our first look at Kit Harington who will be seen playing the character, Dane Whitman.
The trailer also hints at a possible ‘New Avengers‘ plot with Sprite saying, “So now that Captain Rogers and Iron Man are both gone, who do you think is going to lead the Avengers?”
“I could lead them,” says Ikaris that leads to the Eternals cracking up.
‘Eternals’ is scheduled for release on November 5.
