‘Eternals’ Teaser Reveals A Hidden History Of The Marvel Universe

The first teaser for Marvel’s Eternals has arrived, showcasing a new team of heroes unlike those we’ve seen before in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.


Directed by Oscar-winning director Chloé Zhao, Eternals brings the characters of Jack Kirby to life in a new context. Set over the course of thousands of years, Eternals follows a group of aliens that have been living among humanity and guiding the growth of civilizations for a very long time. While they have vowed not to directly interfere in human affairs, something causes them to change their direction and they are forced into action.


Despite being a superhero blockbuster, Zhao approached the material much in the same way that one would approach a prestige film, which shows with the emphasis on wide shots and natural lighting, although there’s still plenty of CGI and action that’s befitting of a movie of this kind. Check out the teaser below:



Along with this, the first poster has arrived, revealing that Zhao wrote the screenplay alongside Patrick Burleigh:
