At San Diego Comic-Con in July of this year, Marvel announced their ‘Phase 4’ lineup of movies and T.V shows that are being released in the coming years. Among those was one movie that many had not heard of before, The Eternals. Unless you’re a devout Marvel fan then you’re likely to have no clue what this is or where it even came from.
Essentially, The ‘Eternals’ are an entire race of humanoids who come from the same universe as the villain we love to hate, Thanos. Seeing as this film is high up on the timeline of Marvel releases, the company announced the entire film cast and there are more than just a few familiar faces. The movie features not just one, but two Game of Thrones main characters: Kit Harrington who played Jon Snow in the series and Richard Madden who played Rob Stark. The film also includes the famously beautiful starlets Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek. Last but certainly not least, Bryan Tyree Henry is set to appear as a main character in the upcoming film as well. You may know him from the hit series ‘Atlanta’.
It is clear that the cast is jammed packed with talented actors and actresses. An exact storyline has not been revealed as of yet but producers did state that the film will include an openly gay character which will be the first for MCU. If this movie is anything like the ones that Marvel has produced in the past then it is sure to be a hit in the box office as well as with die-hard Marvel Comic fans as well.
The Eternals isn’t set to release until November 2020 which may seem like a far distance away but it’s sure to come in the blink of an eye.
