Having officially unveiled Eternals as part of its Phase Four slate as the San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, Marvel Studios has debuted some concept next year’s franchise-launcher featuring the Celestials, the ancient cosmic entities responsible for the creation of the Eternals and their arch-enemies the Deviants. Check it out here…
Among oldest known beings in the Marvel universe, the Celestials have already popped up in the MCU; Guardians of the Galaxy featured a brief glimpse of Eson the Searcher courtesy of The Collector’s Infinity Stone explanation, while the location of Knowhere is the severed head of a deceased Celestial, and Star-Lord’s father Ego the Living Planet is also a member of the race.
Eternals is being directed by Chloe Zhao (The Rider) and features a cast that includes Angelina Jolie (Maleficent) as Thena, Richard Madden (Bodyguard) as Ikarus, Don Lee (Train to Busan) as Gilgamesh, Salma Hayek (The Hitman’s Bodyguard) as Ajak, Lauren Ridloff (The Walking Dead) as Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry (Child’s Play) as Phastos, Lia McHugh (American Woman) as Sprite and Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick) as Kungo.
Eternals is set for release on November 6th 2020.
