The clip shows a UFO landing on Earth, carrying with it the Eternals – who, within Marvel’s storytelling, are an advanced humanoid species with superhuman powers. Their special abilities, which include flight, super-strength, and (this being Marvel) spectacular energy attacks, are only glimpsed at in the trailer.
All of the major names that were confirmed within the movie’s casting make an appearance, including Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan, Salma Hayek, and Game of Thrones stars Richard Madden and Kit Harrington.
The finer details of the plot are not revealed in this first glimpse, though early reports confirmed that the story would take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame.
Take a look at the trailer above, and catch Eternals in cinemas when it releases on November 5, 2021.
In other Marvel news, Dave Bautista has confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will be his last outing within the franchise.
