Marvels ‘Eternals’ Explained: What You Need to Know About the MCU’s New Heroes
This fall, Marvel releases maybe its most obscure movie to date, Eternals based on a cult Jack Kirby comic of the 1970s that ran for only about 18 months, and have made just a few sporadic appearances since then. No Marvel film to date with the possible exception of Guardians of the Galaxy is based on a comic that ran for so few issues or is known by such a small sliver of the audience.
So who are the Eternals? That’s what our new video explainer is all about. It breaks down each of the characters (including Angelina Jolie’s Thena and Richard Madden’s Ikaris) as well as their relationships to each other and to the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe. Watch it below:
