Marvel’s The Eternals new stills from Marvel’s Movie Slate Video
Marvel just dropped an amazing video showing off their movie lineup for their phase 4 which includes new scenes from the upcoming film The Eternals.
The movie is going to be directed by Chloe Zhao, written by Ryan Firpo and Kaz. It stars Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, Lia McHugh, Kit Harrington, Gemma Chan and Don Lee.
There’s not really much to unpack here but I think the photo below is set in the present with most of the members of the Eternals are gathered on Earth in the present day. And they all have this air of personality in them. Madden’s Ikaris looks ready for battle, so as Jolie’s Thena (who’s power is that of weapon creation with cosmic energy), Don Lee (who I totally loved in Train to Busan) looks on bemused and while Sprite and Kingo don’t look too pleased.
The Eternals still we’re seeing below could either be set in the past but I’d rather think that this is set towards the end. They are after all, looking dressed for war and in their traditional garb. Or maybe this is the part where they say goodbye to each other.
The Eternals were created for Marvel Comics by Jack Kirby who returned to Marvel and did The Eternals # 1 back in July 1976. Kirby was very displeased with the cancellation of the New Gods book over at DC Comics and wanted to continue telling stories like that, which Marvel obliged.
The characters have tied up to other stories over the last few decades including a big appearance in Thor # 301 and fairly recently in Jason Aaron’s Avengers run where they were shown to have been mortally wounded by the Celestials.
