Marvel Studios' Final Trailer for Eternals Has Just Dropped (VIDEO)

Here you go…. Marvel Studios' final trailer for Eternals, just dropped on YouTube. A fun thing to wake up to on Bleeding Cool. And why you find me, in a line at the local hospital getting my eldest daughter vaccinated, typing this up. Ah, the heady life of a Bleeding Cool reporter…

Eternals was written and directed by Chloé Zhao, co-written with Patrick Burleigh, starring Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lia McHugh, Brian Tyree Henry, Lauren Ridloff, Barry Keoghan, Don Lee, Gil Birmingham, Harish Patel, Kit Harington, Salma Hayek, and Angelina JolieEternals is scheduled to be released on the 3rd of November in Europe and on the 5th of November in the USA, as part of Phase Four of the MCU.

After an unexpected tragedy following the events of Avengers: Endgame, the Eternals—an immortal alien race created by the Celestials who have secretly lived on Earth for over 7,000 years—reunite to protect humanity from their evil counterparts, the Deviants. Basically, it's a big budget movie version of Game Of Thrones. You know the score. The trailer immediately answers why a group as powerful as the Eternals didn't help out with the fight against Thanos during Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, getting the elephant in the room out of the way before revealing the plot of the movie for the first time. Of course, there's a massive threat coming that brings the immortal heroes together to fight.Eternals was originally created by Jack Kirby and first published back in 1976. The 1970s was an odd time – Erik von Daniken's Chariot of the Gods was all the rage. The book claimed that extraterrestrials had influenced human history since ancient times. Kirby took that concept and ran with it, adding his trademark Marvel-style superhero cosmic bombast. There was also more than a hint of Cold War metaphor in Kirby's original comics with the Eternals representing the West and their enemies the Deviants representing the brutality of Soviet Communism. It'll be interesting to see what metaphors the movie will end up presenting.

In April 2018, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced that a film based on the Eternals had begun development, with Ryan and Matthew K. Firpo hired to write the script in May. Zhao was set to direct the film by late September, and was given freedom to use her own style when making the film such as filming on location more than previous Marvel Studios films. Zhao re-wrote the screenplay, which Burleigh was later revealed to have also contributed to. Starting in March 2019, a diverse cast was hired to portray the Eternals which include the depiction of an LGBTQ superhero. Principal photography took place from July 2019 to February 2020, at Pinewood Studios as well as on location in London and Oxford, England, and in the Canary Islands.
