Even among comic book fans, Marvel’s Eternals aren’t exactly household names. However, the upcoming the film should greatly increase their profile. The hardest trick will be convincing viewers that the Eternals have been a part of the MCU all all along. That’s one of the reasons that the film has a split narrative between the past and the present.
Marvel Studios has debuted the first official clip from Eternals, which takes place in the distant past. Makkari (Lauren Ridloff), Kingo (Kumail Nanjiani), and Ikaris (Richard Madden) get to be perhaps the world’s first superheros as they take on the Deviants. It’s a battle that won’t end here. Regardless, it is a taste of things to come.

Gemma Chan also stars in the film as Sersi, the Eternal who has perhaps the strongest bond with humanity. While she loved Ikaris in the past, she’s dating Dane Whitman (Kit Harington), the man who is destined to be the Black Knight.
Additionally, Lia McHugh will portray Sprite alongside Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Barry Keoghan as Druig, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, Salma Hayek as Ajak, and Angelina Jolie as Thena.
Eternals will hit theaters on November 5.
