The Eternals (November 6, 2020)





Quote:
Fresh off the Hall H announcement on Saturday that Jolie is joining the MCU in Phase 4 movie The Eternals, the actress stopped by EWs Comic-Con 2019 portrait studio with her new costars.

Im so excited to be here, Jolie said during Marvels panel. Im going to work 10 times harder because I think what it means to be a part of the MCU, what it means to be an Eternal, to be a part of this family, I know what we all need to do. We have all read the script. We have all know what the task ahead is and we are all going to be working very, very hard. Im training. I am thrilled. Thank you so much.

The Eternals, directed by The Riders Chloe Zhao, will star Jolie as Thena, along with Richard Madden (Icarus), Kumail Nanjiani (Kingo), Lauren Ridloff (Makkari), Brian Tyree Henry (Phastos), Salma Hayek (Ajak), Lia McHugh (Sprite), and Don Lee (Gilgamesh).

Its about this group of incredible immortals, but through their journey, we really get to explore what it means to be human and humanity on our time on this planet, Zhao said.

The Eternals are a race of immortal aliens sent to Earth by the Celestials to protect humankind from the Deviants, added Madden. Ridloff also signed that she is playing the first deaf character in the MCU.


The Eternals has already started filming in London and is set for release on Nov. 6, 2020.

More details & background on the characters:
Quote:
“The Eternals” have arrived.

The first film announced at Marvel’s San Diego Comic-Con presentation on Saturday, unarguably the hottest ticket of the weekend, confirmed months of speculation by unveiling its cast: Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Richard Madden, Brian Tyree Henry, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff and Don Lee will star as 35,000 -year-old aliens.

“This movie will allow those who have never felt represented in movies, in this case superheroes, to be represented. I love my diverse family,” Hayek said on stage.

A release date for the movie has also been revealed: November 6, 2020.

Here’s some background on the comics:

Who are the Eternals?

In the comics, the Eternals were created millions of years ago from alien experiments on ancient humans. While still physically resembling regular people, they gained powerful abilities, like super strength, flight, teleportation, mind control, shape-shifting and energy projection. They lived in space cities and defended Earth from threats, like the Deviants, another race of super-humans that were more destructive and deformed. Since they’ve existed throughout history, many of the Eternals have lived among humans at times and inspired ancient Greek, Roman and Norse myths. There are a few dozen Eternals in the comics, but the movie is said to focus mainly on two of the most prominent ones named Sersi and Ikaris.

MCU connections

The upcoming film may have several links to the MCU that would greatly expand the mythos. In the comics, Thanos, the MCU’s ultimate baddie, was an Eternal with genes from their evil counterparts, the Deviants. His purple skin resembled the Deviants, and the Eternals feared that he was a herald of death, which would later be proven true. Even though he died in “Avengers: Endgame,” Thanos’ backstory could be further explored.

The Celestials, even older, godlike beings, created the Eternals millions of years, and one of them appeared in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.” Ego, the main villain played by Kurt Russel, was a Celestial with the power to shapeshift and transform planets. He fathered countless children across the universe in hopes one of them would inherit his Celestial powers, and he was soon defeated by his son Starlord and the Guardians of the Galaxy. If “The Eternals” showed the origins of the superheroes, Russel might pop up as one of their Celestial creators.

Finally, the Celestials in the comics also created the shape-shifting Skrulls that debuted in “Captain Marvel.” Millions of years ago, the Celestials split the aliens into three races: one with the Eternals’ powers, one with the Deviant ability to shapeshift, and one with no powers. The Deviant group wiped out all the others, leaving the shape-shifters that fans have come to know. However, most of the Skrulls now appear to be a peaceful race in the MCU and have worked alongside a few of our heroes.

Madly hyped for this movie - the cast is so great, and I can already see they have amazing chemistry based on the photos together. Getting Selma Hayek and Angelina Jolie are big coups.

Re: The Eternals (November 6, 2020)

Another gamble I feel for Marvel like with Guardians of the Galaxy. Only a core group of people knew about them and myself and it worked out for them, and The Eternals is something I know nothing about so I'm the audience they'll want to grab to see the film. Pull me in baby..PULL ME IN!

Eh, not looking good so far. Unless the director manages to pull out a James Gunn like story telling, the movie isn't going to do well.

Love the Eternals comic books, should be cool if they get the visuals right.

When it comes to the MCU how aren't people beyond these thoughts until they at least see an actual trailer first? Marvel is one of the few properties they have earned the trust of the fans.

Re: The Eternals (November 6, 2020)

This has to be the weirdest cast and director in the MCU. Feels like the first trailer need to be really memorable like GoTG to grab attention or this could end up like Solo of Star Wars. Fans will still watch but the wider audience might just give it a pass.
