First Look At Marvel's Eternals Revealed With Stunning Concept Art

First Look At Marvel's Eternals Revealed With Stunning Concept Art

Marvel didn't wait too long to give us our
first look at the upcoming ​The Eternals.​ Concept art for the flick, which will be the
second film in the MCU's Phase 4, was recently released online. It depicts a quartet of the ancient beings
known as Celestials walking across the surface of a barren planet. We've been introduced to these beings just
a couple of times before, once in each of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. In Guardians Vol. 1, our heroes traveled to
the mining colony of Exitar to meet with The Collector, who had some knowledge to impart
about the Infinity Stones. Exitar is situated within Knowhere, which
is actually the severed head of a deceased Celestial. A later scene also seemed to showcase a look
at a Celestial as it uses the Power Stone to effortlessly destroy an entire planet. “These powerful carriers can destroy entire
civilizations like wheat in a field.” In Guardians Vol. 2, we got our first proper
introduction to one of the all-powerful entities in the form of Ego, the "Living Planet," who
was revealed to be the father of Peter Quill. Ego didn't look a lot like the Celestials
pictured, but we can assume that Celestials come in all shapes and sizes. Plus, we can assume from Ego's ability to
masquerade as a human that Celestials can also assume other forms if need be. In Marvel lore, the Celestials existed before
virtually any other form of sentient life in the universe. Millions of years ago, they were responsible
for the creation of the Eternals — near-immortal, superpowered humanoids — and their polar
opposite race, the Deviants, which are essentially the Eternal equivalent of mutants. The two races have been locked in struggle
for centuries, with the Eternals tasked with defending Earth from the Deviants' conquest. Thus far in the MCU, we haven't met any Eternals
that we know of, but we have met one Deviant. Thanos, the Mad Titan who embarked on a quest
to collect all six Infinity Stones and wipe out half of all life in the universe, carries
the Deviant gene in Marvel comics. It's not yet known to what extent the Celestials
will figure into the narrative of The Eternals; Marvel’s head honcho Kevin Feige has hinted
that the flick could be an epic spanning tens of thousands of years, so we may only get
a look at them in the form of some exposition on the ancient history of the universe. As for the Eternals themselves, we at least
have an idea of what the team that will be featured in the movie will look like, thanks
to Marvel's recent panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2019. The entire primary cast was announced at the
event, and it includes Richard Madden as Ikaris, the leader of the flick's team of heroes;
Angelina Jolie as Thena, also known as Azura, who in the comics has been known to consort
with Deviants; Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, who took up residence in Japan thousands of years
ago and learned the ways of the Samurai; Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, an expert mechanical engineer
and speedster; Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, a master weapons-smith; Salma Hayek as Ajak,
who has spent most of her thousands of Earthly years in Siberia; finally young Lia McHugh
as Sprite, a trickster who is forever stuck with the appearance of a pre-teen child. The Eternals begins shooting next month, so
hopefully, it won't be too long before some unofficial set photos of the stars in costume
arrive. Of course, there will probably be plenty more
of these interesting little hints and revelations that will come trickling out in the wake of
Marvel's epic Comic-Con panel. We'll keep our eye out for them, and keep
you up to date. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Looper videos about your favorite

  1. really the eternals? not interested seriously I saw the reboot pilot comic ok so the most sensible comparison I can make is to Percy Jacksons gods and how they interact with each other. bleh

  2. Gender and race swapping in marvel is getting beyond a joke.

    In the next captain marvel movie Goose will be played by a Doggo!


  3. OK, repeat after me: the MCU is NOT canon. Ego is not a celestial. He's an Elder, sort of. It's honorary.

  4. The Ego is not a Celestial, he is a planet. He lied. Thanos is not a Deviant, he is an eternal who looks like a Deviant.

  5. So is the next big villain gonna be Galactus? Not the Fantastic Four bullshit but the REAL Galactus. I hope so!

  6. PHASE 4 = The Social Justice Marxist BULLSHIT phase. Does not matter, superheroes genre is dead creatively.

  7. And an Indian who plays a Japanese man. I'm sure Japanese people are really pleased at this. Why not create a an Indian superhero who throws Nan bread at people.

  8. anjolina Jolie (Thena in eternals) I'm pretty sure is Chris pratt's mom as you can see in Guardians of the Galaxy where she has a bald head and is on a hospital bed, well I think it looks like a younger version of her

  9. What other kind of preteen/s is/are there? Aren't they by the very definition a child? When is a child not a child? When does one become an adult?

  10. They need to follow the comic's character profile. Stop ruining things for the sake of equality. Pathetic.
