Oh snap! We've finally got a second trailer for Marvel's Eternals, which not only looks super cool, but has also confirmed where the movie sits in the MCU timeline, as well as clearing up a few main questions we had from the first trailer. If you're not caught up with the events of Endgame, spoilers ahead (obviously).
In case you missed the first trailer, the movie is introducing us to a whole new group of all powerful beings called the Eternals, who have watched over the Earth for thousands of years. Despite seemingly helping mankind evolve and achieve great things, they claimed that they "never interfered", which of course refers to all the wars and fights they've never been a part of. This left fans understandably confused - where were these guys when everyone was fighting Thanos?
Check out the trailer below:
This new trailer thankfully offers an answer to that question, albeit a simple one. "We were instructed not to interfere in any human conflicts unless Deviants were involved." What are the Deviants? Monstrous creatures that were long thought lost, but are due to make a re-emergence thanks to the energy released when the Earth's population was brought back during Endgame. Uh oh, consequences. To be honest, the whole not interfering thing still feels like a bit of a cop-out considering how bad things got with Thanos, but go off I guess.
Weird ethics aside, we also got a better look at the Eternals themselves, and they definitely seem like they'll be an interesting bunch. The cast includes Richard Madden as Ikaris, Gemma Chan as Sersi, and Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos.
The movie is being directed by Chloé Zhao, who earlier this year became the second woman, and the first woman of colour, to win the award for Best Director at the Golden Globe Awards, so you know it's in good hands. And there isn't too long to wait now before Eternals will be hitting our screens - it'll be out in cinemas on 5 November for UK and US audiences. As of now, it's not confirmed if we'll also be seeing a simultaneous release on Disney+ like we did with Black Widow, so we'll have to stay tuned on that front.
