Newly discovered promotional artwork for Marvel’s Eternals movie offers a new glimpse at the characters in their costumes. Marvel’s Eternals takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. The film will involve both the Celestials and the Deviants, part of Jack Kirby’s wider cosmic mythology. In the comics, the Celestials created the Eternals as an evolutionary offshoot of humanity. The Celestials intended them to be the protectors of the Earth. The Deviants, another evolutionary branch, instead seeks to wipe out humanity. Director Chloé Zhao helms the Marvel Studios film adaptation. Zhao also says she wrote the screenplay, though Marvel hasn’t updated the film’s official credits to reflect that yet.
The Eternals cast includes Angelina Jolie as Thena, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, Gemma Chan as Sersi, and Barry Keoghan as Druig. Kit Harrington also stars as Dane Whitman, a human who possesses a magic sword that transforms him into the Black Knight.
Eternals opens in theaters on November 5th.
