One of the most anticipated arrivals of another band of heroes in the MCU is none other than the Eternals where for thousands of years, they roam the Earth and never interfered with how humanity has formed through the years until the threat of the emergence arrived. Here is everything you need to know including the release date, cast, trailer, plot, characters, comic, villain, powers, news, and updates.
Two clips have been released for Eternals, one is the official teaser and the other is the final trailer which perfectly sets the tone of the upcoming film of possibly the oldest band of superheroes living and residing here on Earth. For 7,000 years, they coexisted with people and finally learned to love the various generations that they passed by, but they never interfered.
What if the Plot of Eternals?
Just in time for the release of the final trailer, Eternals released a new plot synopsis which made it more definite what the film would be about. The synopsis is as follows:
"When monstrous creatures called the Deviants, long thought lost to history, mysteriously return, the Eternals are forced to reunite in order to defend humanity once again."
Who are the Cast and Characters of the Eternals and What are their Powers?
Heroes long living in the shadows of Earth, the Eternals date back to thousands of years as a cosmic race of beings finally coming out of hiding as the arrival of a threat forces them to do so. Each of the Eternals almost has the same abilities, with some power unique to them due to the cosmic energy that they have.
Ikaris (Richard Madden) is the Prime Eternal, leader of the team; Thena (Angelina Jolie), squaring off as the other leader of the group; Ajak (Salma Hayek), a Trojan War veteran; Gilgamesh (Don Lee/ Dong-seok Ma), also known as the Forgotten One; Sersi (Gemma Chan), an enchantress and conjurer; Makkari (Lauren Ridloff), the deaf speedster; Sprite (Lia McHugh), an Eternal trapped in the body of an 11-year-old; Kingo Sunen (Kumail Nanjiani), the skilled swordsman; Phastos (Brian Tyree Henry), the blacksmith; and Druig (Barry Keoghan), an ominous Eternal.
