Marvel Studios started Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a major bang and it no longer comes as a surprise how they have been able to keep the momentum going despite some critics claiming that the MCU fatigue will finally come into play after Avengers: Endgame. The studio is celebrating another triumph with Shang-Chi and the Legends of the Ten Rings being a bonafide box office success and in just a few weeks, the Eternals will make their anticipated debut in the franchise.

Considered by many fans as one of Marvel Studios' potential sleeper hits this year, Eternals is already looking extremely promising due to the cosmic team's apparent connection to the Earth's Mightiest Heroes. So far, we've already seen two trailers for the upcoming film, and fans couldn't help but feel excited over the visually stunning project.

Apparently, a lot of work went into the process of creating the film and according to actor Richard Madden who plays Ikaris, being involved in Eternals was "physically f*cking draining". In an interview with Wonderland Magazine, the Game of Thrones alumnus revealed that being put on a harness for his flight scenes may be cool but it's physically exhausting. He said: "There was a lot of time on wires because my character flies, which was just physically f*cking draining."

The MCU is once again expanding and the Eternals' much-awaited arrival will definitely be a game-changer in the franchise. It'll be interesting to see how the Avengers will react to their presence especially after they learn that the group chose not to intervene and save the world when the Earth's Mightiest Heroes needed some serious backup. Will the two teams get along or are we going to see an Avengers vs Eternals showdown down the line?

Marvel Studios' Eternals will hit cinemas in November.
