The Eternals, a race of immortal beings with superhuman powers who have secretly lived on Earth for thousands of years, reunite to battle the evil Deviants.
The first extended glimpse at the newest Marvel blockbuster, The Eternals, hinges on a plot revelation about humanity facing such tough times that immortal beings can not keep their distance.The official teaser trailer doesn’t give much away (surprise!) but the vibe is that folks on Earth got to be rescued by a god-like group.
“We have watched and guided. we've helped them progress and seen them accomplish wonders. Throughout the years we've never interfered … so far ,” says Ajak (Salma Hayek), leader of the Eternals – a superpowered bunch of alien beings.
Based on a lesser-known Marvel comic-book series, The Eternals is directed by recent Oscar winner Chloé Zhao, whose acclaimed drama Nomadland won best picture and best director at this year’s Academy Awards.
Zhao’s cast is notably diverse in ethnicity and age, with Angelina Jolie, Game of Thrones‘ Richard Madden, comedian Kumail Nanjiani and Atlanta’s Brian Tyree Henry all aboard.
Delayed thanks to the COVID pandemic’s impact on cinemas globally, The Eternals will hit our big screens on November 4.Along with the trailer’s end note about leadership of The Avengers – Marvel fans love such in-jokes – it strongly suggests The Eternals is yet one more superhero blockbuster that has humanity unable to save lots of itself from critical threat.
Whether it's The Avengers or Superman, Thor or woman , a standard thread throughout superhero stories is that the recognition that humanity isn't strong enough, smart enough or superior enough to defend its own existence.The Eternals also promises to deliver as entertainment the thought that the fate of humanity depends on the direct intervention of a strong force beyond mere mortals.
While the fictional Marvel cinematic universe might describe that as interference within the Eternals, you would possibly have a special thanks to sum up such divine intervention in our real universe.
