Marvel’s Phase 4 has kicked off with WandaVision, which is intriguing many and frustrating others. Also in the enigmatic, light on detail bucket is a major foundation block of Phase 4 – Eternals. Very little is known about this movie outside the general premise.
It will sit alongside Thor, Captain Marvel and Guardians Of The Galaxy as part of the cosmic MCU and the main characters of Eternals are ancient aliens who have been living secretly on Earth for millennia. They’ll go up against new villains known as The Deviants. Outside this we only really know the cast.
Now a leak has revealed that cast in costume for the first time. First reported by Comic Book, the leak appears to show a tag from some clothing in a promotional range.
It features Salma Hayek’s Ajak, Angelina Jolie’s Thena, Kumail Nanjiani’s Kingo, Ma Dong-seok’s Gilgamesh, Lia McHugh’s Sprite, Brian Tyree Henry’s Phastos, Lauren Riddloff’s Makkari, Gemma Chan’s Sersi, Richard Madden’s Ikaris, and Barry Keoghan’s Druig.
Eternals is still a long way off. It was originally supposed to have arrived in 2020 but COVID-19 put pay to that. It has been booted out to November 2021. Director Chloe Zhao has previosuly said Marvel have been happy to take risks with this movie:
“I think I got lucky in that Marvel wants to take risks and do something different. This could go further and bigger than Avengers: Endgame.”
A previous leak circulating on social media claimed to be a glimpse at the villain in toy form.
Marvel themselves had previously released some concept art close to the announcement of the movie but since then things have been very quiet.
