Disney and Marvel Studios have released the official synopsis for the Eternals.

Marvel Studios’ “The Eternals” features an exciting new team of Super Heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ancient aliens who have been living on Earth in secret for thousands of years. Following the events of “Avengers: Endgame”, an unexpected tragedy forces them out of the shadows to reunite against mankind’s most ancient enemy, The Deviants.

The outstanding ensemble cast includes Richard Madden as the all-powerful Ikaris, Gemma Chan as humankind-loving Sersi, Kumail Nanjiani as cosmic-powered Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as the super-fast Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as the intelligent inventor Phastos, Salma Hayek as the wise and spiritual leader Ajak, Lia McHugh as the eternally young, old-soul Sprite, Don Lee as the powerful Gilgamesh, Barry Keoghan as aloof loner Druig, and Angelina Jolie as the fierce warrior Then. Kit Harington was cast as Dane Whitman. Directed by Chloé Zhao, who helmed the critically acclaimed Sundance film”The Rider,” and produced by Kevin Feige, “The Eternals” opens in U.S. theaters on November 6, 2020.

Wait, Lauren Ridloff is in this? That's awesome! She's great in The Walking Dead, it's cool that she's in this as well.

I love how they all get grand descriptions, and then "Kit Harrington is just sorta there" at the end.

Watch how people who complained about Wakanda won't complain about the Eternals.
I never understood the Wakanda criticism. I consider Black Panther a particularly mediocre MCU movie, but I wouldn't complain about Wakanda, the movie's OST and original/featured songs, or about the villains when that's usually in my opinion one of the MCU's weak spots, and this movie had two formidable ones, Jordan and Serkis.

FX were weak.

Hope they mention Apocalypse in this
They're still shooting the movie, inclusions from any Marvel characters previously owned by 20th Century Fox are completely possible now.

He's probably going to be inspired by the Archaeologist Margo Damian from the comics for this movie.

Maybe his mantle as Black Knight is the movie's surprise.

Oh it takes place within the same continuity? I thought it was going to be a stand alone thing.

Deviants where Ransak The Reject is considered a horrible twitched mockery of their race

Why didn't these Eternals come out to help the avengers fight thanos
They tend not to fuck with humans beings and focus on their own personal goals(Orgies, being the fastest being alive, hunting space dragons, moping). Turns out being immortal causes you to get in your own head and feelings often and lasting decades

I bet you that we also won't get as many people asking where they were as compared to Captain Marvel.



I believe the film will come up with a good reason, if the right Eternals comic material is used.
You mean Mentor the worst dad ever? Two sons, one a genocidal tyrant, the other the living embodiment of "The Implication"

They were Thanos' drinking buddies, but they didn't approve his methods. Still, he's no deviant.
But I thought thanos was half deviant?

Anyway I guess living forever does make you bored..also does Thanos snap exempt the Eternals ? Did some of them get snapped ? Is that what caused them to finally come out? If so they should have been there on the front lines to deal with the Thanos threat since they can detect Deviants

It would be cool if they're so self-absorbed that they don't see the Snap coming, and then afterwards when the Avengers save their ass, it serves as a wake-up call to them.

Lol. There better be a damn good reason they stayed put when Thanos was *this* close to annihilating the planet then.

I imagine it will be the same reason that was used in Neil Gaiman's Eternals run.

That they had been physically assaulted and none of them knew they weren't regular humans at the time

It's a quick, easy and elegant explanation.

The best was when the Olympian gods rolled up on the Eternals because they got tired of the Eternals getting confused for them.

Maybe eternals are exempt from the snap. Or maybe they didn't pay close enough attention that he had all the Infinity stones, it did happen quickly. Thanos was literally on earth what, 5 minutes? Not long enough to do anything about him.

Well, he's Eternal with Deviant ancestry at least in the comics. I really doubt they'll touch that in the MCU though.

Are they keeping a lid on the Defiant's actors, I haven't heard a whisper who's playing them. I thought they were fighting the Celestials.

Was Eternals green-lighted before they knew they were getting the X-Men back?

Feels like this is the way to do X-Men-style team without mutants.
