New Marvel trailers have a way of making Monday mornings a bit brighter, don’t they?
Aside from very brief clips in a video called “Marvel Studios Loves the Movies” that came out earlier this month, this is the first official look fans have gotten of Eternals. The movie was directed by Academy Award winner Chloé Zhao and features an A-list cast, including Richard Madden as Ikaris, Gemma Chan as Sersi, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, Barry Keoghan as Druig, Angelina Jolie as Thena, and Kit Harington as Dane Whitman.
The movie will introduce an entirely new team of heroes to the MCU, telling a story that takes place over thousands of years. The Eternals, a group of immortal heroes, must reunite against mankind’s oldest enemy, The Deviants. As explained by the voiceover in the trailer, The Eternals have helped guide humanity and have watched them from afar. But now, they have to directly interfere and come to Earth themselves.
In the 2-minute trailer, fans get a look at some of these heroes’ powers, including Makkari’s super-speed. Other highlights from the trailer include a first look at the Eternals’ incredibly cool spaceship, some equally cool outfits (looking at you, Kumail Nanjiani), and — of course — beautiful cinematography. And if you weren’t sure how Eternals would connect with the Infinity Saga, the final moments of the trailer give a hint. The whole group is eating dinner when Sprite asks, “So now that Captain Rogers and Iron Man are both gone, who do you think is gonna lead The Avengers?” Ikaris answers “I could lead them,” which is met with a long pause and hysterical laughter from everyone.
Check out the full trailer below, and mark your calendars for Nov. 5, when Eternals will premiere in theaters.
