Meet The Eternals On New EW Covers Plus A Little Plot Detail

Eternals Runtime Makes It Second Longest Marvel Movie

Meet the Eternals on new EW covers for their behind the scenes look at the upcoming Marvel movie. There’s also a little plot detail we hadn’t previously had. With coverage being released today, it seems ever more likely that a new Eternals trailer will drop tomorrow. You can find that rumor in the related section below. First off, check out the members of the team on the EW exclusive covers shown on social media below.

In addition to these cover shots, the EW article itself had a few interesting plot details which whilst perhaps rumored were never confirmed. Some of these do match leaks that have already been revealed for the movie. However there are also some key differences as well. That means I’m still not 100% on whether those plot leaks were legit.

One of the last roles to be cast was the film’s emotional center: Chan plays Sersi, who — unlike some of her Eternal cohorts — has a soft spot for humans. In the present day, she works as a museum curator in London and is dating human Dane Whitman (played by Game of Thrones alum Kit Harington). She’s particularly close to Sprite, and she has the ability to manipulate inanimate matter around her.

However as Chan points out, when it comes to raw super powers, Sersi is not the heavy hitter.

“She’s not the most obviously impressive Eternal in terms of her powers,” Chan explains. “She’s not the strongest, and she’s not the best fighter, but her power really is her empathy.”

There was also a bit more detail on some plot elements that will be covered. Why the Eternals have never got involved before, even when Thanos killed half the Universe?

Eternals is largely a standalone story, focusing specifically on these 10 characters and their journeys together. But Moore teases that the film is “part of the fabric of the MCU,” comparing it to the first Guardians movie, which was mostly self-contained but introduced characters and story lines that would later pop up in other films. 

Eternals picks up after the events of Avengers: Endgame, when half of the population has returned after being snapped out of existence. It’ll also answer why the Eternals didn’t volunteer to help go after Thanos — or help tackle any of the other various crises throughout history. (The short answer is that their mission is to focus on the Deviants and never interfere with human affairs. Still, the Avengers probably could’ve used the help.) That being said, Feige and Moore tease that the film will have major ripple effects on future stories, and it was a challenge at times to balance the MCU’s more grounded tone with the mythic grandeur of Eternals.
