Marvel's Eternals Release Date And Actor Lineup Confirmed At Comic-Con

MCU Phase Four news kicks off.


An Eternals movie is actually--really, for real!--coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel Studios confirmed the film is set to arrive in the MCU's Phase 4 during its San Diego Comic Con 2019 panel, with a launch date slated for November 2020.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige described the tone of Eternals as being "full Jack Kirby," referring to the famed comic book artist/writer's unique and colorful cosmic art style, and described the characters as "a group of immortals who have been on earth for 35000 years, but we haven't met them before."

Jack Kirby created the Eternals, who are superpowered beings created millions of years ago when the Celestials traveled to Earth and experimented on early humans. While news about the cast for the movie has been around for many months, this news from SDCC was the first official confirmation of the movie being produced.

Director Chloe Zhao (The Rider, Songs My Brother Taught Me) took to the stage to join Feige, and said the film was "about this group of incredible immortals but through their journey we really get to see what it means to be human."

The film's impressive cast then took to the stage. Eternals will feature Angelina Jolie (in the role of Thena), Kumail Nanjiani, Salma Hayek (as Ajak, the Eternals' leader), Brian Tyree Henry (as Phastos), Don Lee (as Gilgamesh), Lia McHugh (as Sprite), and Richard Madden (as Ikaris). Lauren Ridloff is also joining the cast as Makkari, who will be the MCU's first Deaf superhero.
