The Eternals is a highly anticipated addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and will be the second film presented in Phase Four following Black Widow.

Chloé Zhao’s upcoming blockbuster will focus on a group of immortal beings, in a story that will span thousands of years. The Eternals were created by The Celestials, to protect humanity from the villainous Deviants.

The cast includes Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, The Walking Dead‘s Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, and Kit Harrington.

It’ll be the first movie since Black Panther to introduce new characters, and there’s a large ensemble cast to meet once it hits theaters in a year. The cast is the most inclusive one in the entire MCU, although some of this cast was no doubt involved in the reported evacuation.

The Eternals is expected to hit theaters on November 6th, 2020.
