Eternals is currently under camera and set for release in November of this year, the second of only two Marvel Studios movies arriving in 2020. We know the cast, we know the director, the writing team, but we don’t know a great deal about what the rough plot of the movie might be.
Eternals seemingly spans thousands of years as these immortal characters have been hidden in plain sight amongst Humans. we know they have scenes in modern times and we know there are at least some set as far back as ancient Babylon. Now we may have at least a vague idea of what has prompted these characters to have to come to the forefront once more. Marvel has released the following official synopsis for the movie, so check it out.
“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 include Richard Madden as the all-powerful Ikaris, Gemma Chan as humankind-loving Sersi, Kumail Nanjiani as the cosmic-powered Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as the super-fast Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as the intelligent inventor Phastos, Salma Hayak as the wise and spiritual leader Ajak, Lia McHugh as the eternally young, old-coul Sprite, Don Lee as the powerful Gilgamesh, Barry Keoghan as the aloof loner Druig, and Angelina Jolie as the fierce warrior Thena. Kit Harrington was cast as Dane Whitman. Directed by Chloe 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.”
I do wonder what this tragedy is, and whether it may have anything to do with the Universe shaking events of Avengers: Endgame? As for the Deviants, well I think we knew they were involved, we just didn’t know in what way. Perhaps, whatever this tragedy was has opened some kind of path for The Deviants to attempt to attack Earth once more, and it would be interesting if the cause of this was the events of Avengers: Endgame.
What do you think of this latest synopsis, does it sound interesting, or would you prefer to wait for the trailer before decide if this looks like a movie for you?
