Last week saw the teaser release of Eternals which brought the audiences a glimpse into the new MCU team. Chloe Zhao, Oscar-winning Director has brought together a brilliant ensemble cast for Marvel. Fans are very excited to see the film in theaters after watching the teaser with many believing that this movie could be the best Marvel movie ever released. However, this teaser is also leading to many questions amongst fans as to where the Eternals were when everything was happening in the Marvel Universe.
The main topic of discussion after the Eternals teaser is where have these beings been during the various disasters. The teaser talks about how they have not gotten involved but now fans are wondering what happened worse than Thanos that drew them out. Many fans are also talking about how these super beings could live with themselves after not helping during Thanos and Ultron’s destruction.
Thanos snapped and wiped out half the galaxy and even then the Eternals just hung around their dining table and stood around on beaches. The teaser shows the Eternals talking about the Avengers and calling Captain America and Iron Man by name so the movie will probably address why the Eternals did not intervene during several marvel crises.
Fans are also wondering if Thanos’s snap affected the Eternals or if they were protected and only watched from the sidelines. If the Eternals already knew that things would be righted and hence did not participate? This tiny teaser has raised many questions for marvel fans.
These questions will continue to come up as the Marvel Universe expands and grows. Many such questions were also raised when Captain Marvel was introduced. Many fans wonder if it would have been simpler to have the Eternal’s memory wiped until now as many comics have done.
Eternals showcases a new team of super beings in the Marvel Universe. These super beings are aliens who have been inhabiting our planet for thousands of years. This movie is based after Avengers: Endgame where a tragedy will force them out from hiding to save humanity from The Deviants, their enemy.
Cast of Eternals
Eternals has a brilliant ensemble cast with Gemma Chan playing Sersi, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari with super speed, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Salma Hayek as Ajak who is a spiritual leader and wise, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos an inventor who is very intelligent, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, Lia McHugh as Sprite an old soul who is eternally young, Angelina Jolie as Thena and Barry Keoghan as Druig.

The teaser only gave a small idea of what the plot could be, fans are most excited about the movie’s visuals. Most Marvel movies had lacking visuals but Eternals seems to be gorgeous.
