Marvel Releases Footage of the Eternals Film Premiere, After the MCU finished Phase 3 in 2019 with Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home, Marvel Studios has postponed their Phase 4 plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic and came to a complete halt in 2020. Now, 2021 will almost certainly be overcrowded. under various titles from the MCU, with four films to be released, including the Eternals film.
Confirmed at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con, Eternals is a film adaptation directed by recently Oscar-winning director Chloé Zhao (Nomadland). This film also features A class actors and actresses such as Angelina Jolie as Thena, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Richard Madden as Ikaris and Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo. They were joined on the Eternals by Gemma Chan as Sersi, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Lia McHugh as Sprite and Barry Keoghan as Druig.
Not to mention that at the D23 Expo 2019 event, the head of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, also announced that Kit Harington, whose role is phenomenal in Game of Thrones, will also join as Dane Whitman aka Black Knight. Since that day, finally the fans’ long wait to see the Eternals premiere came through a short footage. This footage is present through trailers of various MCU films that will be present, see the 2.20 minute video below.
Although it doesn’t reveal much of the essentials, there are scenes where the costumes of the Eternals, as well as Thena, are holding shining swords. Whether the sword is the Ebony Blade that will belong to the Black Knight, or is it another sword that we can only find out about after the film is released, we should wait.
It’s still unclear when the Eternals movie trailer will be released. Given that the film is currently scheduled to hit theaters about a month after Shang-Chi. It’s possible that Marvel wants to focus its marketing efforts on Black Widow and Shang-Chi a little longer, and maybe postpone the Eternals trailer until later in the summer. Until then, this Eternals premiere footage has effectively turned fan enthusiasm even higher.
