Marvel's First 'Eternals' Trailer Reveals Epic Cast
Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan and Salma Hayek all make an appearance.
Marvel just released a first look at Eternals, a star-studded epic telling the story of Earth’s earliest, most powerful superheroes. Directed by Oscar-winner Chloé Zhao, the film sees the clan of immortal warriors reunite to protect humankind from the Deviants, a tribe of super-villains.
Though the trailer doesn’t reveal much plot-wise, Marvel does give fans a peek at the flick’s superb ensemble cast: Gemma Chan plays Sersi, the film’s softhearted lead; Angelina Jolie appears as the fierce Thena; Salma Hayek portrays Ajak, the Eternals’ spiritual leader; and Kumail Nanjiani takes on Kingo, a superhuman who can project cosmic energy from his hands. The movie also features Marvel’s very first LGBTQ+ superhero: Phastos, played by Brian Tyree Henry.
Eternals releases in theaters on November 5, 2021. Watch Marvel’s first trailer for the hotly anticipated feature above.
