New 'Eternals' Trailer Introduces Marvel's First LGBTQ+ Family
The Chloé Zhao-directed film is slated to premiere next month.
Titled “Protect,” the short trailer features Marvel’s first LGBTQ+ family. Phastos (Brian Tyree Henry), an Eternal, is seen outside his home with his husband (Haaz Sleiman) and their kid, who are being visited by Sersi (Gemma Chan) and Ikaris (Richard Madden). “Dad, I saw him on TV with a cape shooting laser beams,” Phastos’ son says. “I don’t wear a cape,” Ikaris replies. The footage also gives fans a glimpse of Gilgamesh’s (Don Lee) powers as he fights against a Deviant — the Eternals’ evil counterparts.
Directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Chloé Zhao, Eternals follows a group of immortal individuals created by the Celestials who have sworn to protect Earth from “the Emergence,” an event caused by the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame. Starring alongside Henry, Chan and Madden are Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Barry Keoghan as Druig, Salma Hayek as Ajak and Angelina Jolie as Thena.
Eternals will premiere in theaters on November 5. Watch the latest teaser above and the final trailer below.
