The production of Eternals has been going on for more than 3 months now and people would definitely like to know more about the film. Our first look at Eternals may be coming in the first week of February at the Super Bowl. That’s because Marvel has already shown a piece of footage at Brazil Comic Con Experience. Anyway, we’ve got loads of set photos and a synopsis which have confirmed at least 3 things about the film. The first is the romance between Black Knight & Sersi.
Just one day before the announcement of Kit Harrington as Black Knight, we got the memo that Harrington is going to take on a role in the MCU. It was being presumed that he’d probably end up being Wolverine, Moon Knight, Human Torch or probably even Nova. But then he was revealed as Black Knight and things made so much sense. The transition from Jon Snow to Black Knight in the MCU feels so obvious and honestly, pretty awesome. Harrington is getting to play a similar kind of role compared to what he has been playing for the last 8-9 years or so. Just because of this, his MCU character should be flawless.
Once Black Knight was announced for the Eternals, things became much clearer. Apparently, the story was going to revolve around the relationship between Dane Whitman/Black Knight (a human) & Sersi (an Eternal). The Eternals usually prohibit relationships between Humans and them, but Sersi has always been the one who does what she feels like. So, that seems to be the case here as well. Gemma Chan & Kit Harrington were seen together on set a while back. Their attires also confirmed that the film is taking place in the present times. Now, a new photo shows them kissing each other. Take a look:
2 aspects of the film have been confirmed already, and the third aspect of the film is that even though it will take place in the present, we will be getting a lot of flashback sequences which take us 1000s of years in the past. MCU’s rich history in the Eternals will be explored. As of now, it seems that the Eternals have somehow forgotten about their powers. Something will remind them in this movie, and from there on out, Eternals will return to their duties as the protectors of Earth.
As of now, they’re living as normal humans who are aware of what the Avengers did to save the Universe. But after this film, the Avengers will also be aware of the Eternals. Here’s the synopsis for the upcoming Eternals movie:
“Marvel Studios’ “The Eternals” features an exciting new team of Super Heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ancient aliens who have been living on Earth in secret for thousands of years. Following the events of “Avengers: Endgame”, an unexpected tragedy forces them out of the shadows to reunite against mankind’s most ancient enemy, The Deviants. The outstanding ensemble cast includes Richard Madden as the all-powerful Ikaris, Gemma Chan as humankind-loving Sersi, Kumail Nanjiani as cosmic-powered Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as the super-fast Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as the intelligent inventor Phastos, Salma Hayek as the wise and spiritual leader Ajak, Lia McHugh as the eternally young, old-soul Sprite, Don Lee as the powerful Gilgamesh, Barry Keoghan as aloof loner Druig, and Angelina Jolie as the fierce warrior Then. Kit Harington was cast as Dane Whitman. Directed by Chloé Zhao, who helmed the critically acclaimed Sundance film”The Rider,” and produced by Kevin Feige, “The Eternals” opens in U.S. theaters on November 6, 2020.”
