Well, this was a surprise drop last night. Marvel Studios out of no where dropped a new trailer for the upcoming “Eternals” movie. And boy…did it not disappoint.
With Black Widow done and dusted, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings about to hit cinemas in the coming weeks, its time to really dive into the next blockbuster directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Chloe Zhao. Marvel have hinted that Eternals could be one of the studios most unique films to date and this trailer definately showcases what they are saying.
Now, the big question is where in the timeline will this one fit? We have heard from the early reactions from Shang-Chi that Shang-Chi will be taking place after the events of Avengers: Endgame and this will be after that. So it looks like Marvel is in full swing with moving forward in the timeline.
The biggest hint is in the opening of this trailer, where Ajak (Salma Hayak) and Ikaris (Richard Madden) have a renuion to discuss the two key events of the five-year infinity war with Thanos. That is after the snap (or Blip) caused an amount of cosmic energy that has catalyzed an event called “The Emergence” which (as the name suggests) will bring a world-ending threat that only the “Eternals” can stop.
The biggest hint of who the big bad in this one was a quick look at The Celestials (which everyone online thought might have been Galactus). Whichever way this plays out, this trailer has definately peaked alot of interest in Marvel fans in the direction they are going with Phase 4.
So what are your thoughts? Are we looking forward to the next wave of MCU movies? Are you liking the direction. Let us know your thoughts
