It also provides one-line bios for each of the movie's superheroes, and explains the rough premise of The Eternals: that they're aliens who have been hiding out on Earth for many, many years, who are finally coming out of hiding.
They're both movies, and they're unique in different ways considering all the rumors and all of Marvel's recent official revelations. They will continue to build the Marvel Cinematic Universe and evolve the storyline, inching us closer and closer to the next epic adventure like Endgame.
While Marvel's Eternals movie is still very shrouded in secrecy, a newly released plot synopsis sheds more light on how the movie fits into the larger tapestry that is the MCU.
With less than a year for its release, Marvel Studios has confirmed that The Eternals is set up after the events of Avengers: Endgame in an elaborative plot synopsis. It also details exactly which actor is playing which major character.
Shared by Comicbook.com, the synopsis reads, "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.
That may have whet your appetite but there's still a while until we catch The Eternals in theaters - it's set for release on November 6, 2020.
Directed by Chloé Zhao, Eternals stars an ensemble cast that includes Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, Lia McHugh, Don Lee, Barry Keoghan, Gemma Chan, and Kit Harington.
One thing I do like about Marvel and Kevin Feige is that they are never afraid to hold back on ambition and while many would've easily forgiven the studio for perhaps not wanting to keep all these stories interconnected, they are continuing down that path anyway and adding TV show into the mix to make things even more complicated. "This is a new form of Deviants that we'll see in the movie", said Feige.
