The Eternals is highly anticipated for several reasons. For one, it’s been delayed a year; for another, it’s a huge ensemble cast with multiple stars; third, not many people seem to know who or what the Eternals are, even though they are apparently among the most powerful characters in the MCU; and fourth, it’s directed by Oscar winner Chloe Zhao.
Fifth, we’ve barely gotten a single glimpse of the movie!
We saw a bit in the Marvel Phase 4 trailer, and today Marvel finally released an actual teaser for the film, which looks epic, and surprisingly atmospheric and lyrical. This isn’t all that surprising considering Zhao’s first two features were the atmospheric and lyrical The Rider and Nomadland, for which she won Best Director and which won Best Picture, last month.
In the trailer, we see Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Angeline Jolie, Salma Hayek, Bryan Tyree-Henry (Atlanta WHAT!), Kumail Nunjani, Barry Keoghan (Killing of a Sacred Deer WHAT!), and more from the large cast. and we are told that they’ve been around forever, assisting humanity for ages, but never interfering. Until now, for some as of yet unknown reason.
