“Eternals” remains one of the most curious films on the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s docket. As the MCU slowly moves away from many of its most iconic superheroes and forges its own new batch, the Eternals seemed like an odd choice. But Kevin Feige and his team of wizards at Marvel Studios have locked up the unwavering trust of their intensely loyal fan base. At this point they could introduce anyone they want and the pushback would be minimal to none at all.
The final trailer for “Eternals” dropped today and its purpose seems obvious. It gives us a closer look at this team of immortals while teasing answers to glaringly obvious questions, namely why didn’t these protectors of earth help when Thanos was having his way with humanity. The trailer has an interesting yet unusual vibe that makes it resemble a sci-fi drama more than a comic book inspired superhero movie. I’m sure much of that is due to the unique sensibility director Chloé Zhao brings. How will it ultimately play out? We’ll find out in November.
“Eternals” hits theaters November 5th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
