After the Endgame the Avengers will not perform in their own team movie in Phase 4 of the MCU. Instead, Marvel Studios have just announced the All-Star cast of their next ensemble project: The Eternals, directed by Chloé Zhao. At the weekend's San Diego Comic Con, our suspicions were confirmed as a number of players associated with the move were confirmed to have participated. Here's everything we know about the movie so far.
Richard Madden will direct the film, as widely reported, as Ikaris. Angelina Jolie will perform as Thena, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos and Don Lee as Gilgamesh.
"With this film, those who have never felt represented in films, in this case superheroes, can be represented, and I love my diverse family," Hayek said. Also newcomers include Lia McHugh as Sprite and Lauren Ridloff as Makkari ̵
While the details of the plot are currently still tenuous, we know that the Eternals in Marvel Comics are a race of long-lived super beings, also known as homo immortalis They emerged on the Earth next to humans and created by an extraterrestrial race called Celestials to be the protectors of Earth. This could be the first movie in the MCU that recognizes the X-Men after these characters were re-inducted into the Marvel group.  Eternals will also be rumored to be the first Marvel movie to be an openly gay star – though it will be closely followed by Thor: Love and Thunder explicitly calling the Valkyrie bisexual after it was first suggested in Ragnarok .
No trailer has been seen at SDCC.
The Release Date
Marvel Studios has confirmed that Eternals will fly on screens on November 6, 2020.
