Eternals Is Set To Completely Redefine The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Marvel's cinematic universe is about to get an incredible shake-up, with the release of Eternals only in Irish cinemas on November 5th.

Eternals introduces an incredible new team of superheroes to fans; an ancient race of immortal beings that have lived on Earth in secret for thousands of years. The epic film recaps on the entirety of human history from the Eternals own standpoint - and it will also explain why this super-powered group were absent for major events like Avengers: Endgame. However, when monstrous creatures called the Deviants make a return to Earth, the team is forced to reunite to defend the earth from this ancient enemy of mankind.

The film looks like a cinematic masterpiece - and that should come as no surprise, seeing as it's directed by Oscar-winner Chloe Zhao, scored by the one and only Ramin Djawadi, and stars an incredible ensemble cast. Leading the start-studded charge is Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kit Harrington, and Ireland's very own Barry Keoghan. We're pretty sure this will have our jaws dropping to the floor - and if you've not seen the trailers yet, check out this one right here:

It's clear that we'll see some massive goosebump moments that bring a completely fresh angle to Marvel movies - along with the classic humour and jokes that fans love to see. Eternals also proudly serves up one of the most representative superhero teams to date in the cinematic universe; with some standout diversity inclusions like the MCU's first deaf superhero, Makkari (played by Lauren Rodloff), and the first openly gay MCU hero, Phastos (portrayed by Brian Tyree Henry).

Describing the importance of this representation for fans, Angelina Jolie, who plays Thena, said "A lot of people are going to see themselves as super heroes for the first time". Director Chloe Zhao has also commented on the character development each member of the team will go on, saying "We go on these emotional journeys with these Eternls to figure out who they are and what it means to be human".

This is the third film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase Four; and producer Nate Moore has said that it deals very much with the aftermath of Endgame, and the state the world is in. The film also promises to explain why this immortal team of superheroes didn't take part in those cataclysmic Endgame events - so we can't wait for this to hit theatres to find out why.

First reactions to the film are building the hype even further; with critics calling this the most shocking and surprising Marvel movie to date with a LOT of twists and turns.

What's more, there's plenty of rumour and speculation about an insane post-credit scene - an essential Marvel movie element - which is sure to shake up the cinematic universe even further.
