Let’s Take a Big, Long Look at the Eternals This Time!

A new trailer for Eternals has arrived and it’s pretty crazy. This one really dives deep into what these characters can do and what they’re all about. And it’s all big and cosmic and crazy, with monsters and powers and explanations.

Personally, I don’t need every facet of this movie to explain why they didn’t help against Thanos. But then I’m not one of those people who demands to know why the other Avengers don’t lend a hand in the various solo movies. Just watch the dang film in front of you. Do you help out every single time every one of your friends needs help moving?

Anyway, this looks solid. Part of me is worried that it’s still too big and too crazy to land with audiences. And this trailer does a lot to reference other parts of the Marvel Universe, which makes me think Disney is a little worried as well. It’s like they feel the need to reinforce it’s connections to the MCU to make sure people see it.

I guess we’ll find out when Eternals arrives in theaters on Nov. 5!

6 Things I Want to See in the Eternals Movie

The first trailer for Marvel’s Eternals movie came out this week and it was neat! Like all Marvel movies, I’m excited for Eternals coming out in November. But unlike all other Marvel movies, I have no idea what to expect. I’m a lifelong comic book fan, but even I don’t know all that much about the Eternals. I don’t know if I’ve ever even read an Eternals comic.

I know none of their names

Still, I have full faith in Marvel Studios and director Chloe Zhao to pull this off. Marvel knows how to make a great movie, and I’m confident they can make one out of Eternals. And if they haven’t finished already, I have my usual list of things I’d like to see in the movie. Though I’ll admit this list is probably a little sparse. I have no idea what to want or expect from an Eternals movie.

But let’s give it a shot anyway! Join me after the jump!

How About the First Eternals Trailer?!

And here I thought it was going to be a pretty chill Monday. Nope! Marvel released the first teaser trailer for The Eternals today and it’s something else! I still have no idea what to make of this movie. What the heck is this going to be?

Jeez louis, that’s just neat. I like the song choice. The trailer explains what The Eternals are and what we might be dealing with. And it’s a teaser, so no real plot details yet. But I just don’t know what to make of this movie. I have complete and utter faith in Marvel to pull this off. But man, The Eternals are out there, even for me!

The Eternals arrives in theaters in November!

Get Hyped for Them There Marvel Movies!

It being a random Monday, Marvel has released a sizzle reel trailer to show off their awesomeness and reveal some upcoming dates for new movies. Obviously this is a ploy to get us all to go back to movie theaters…and it works like a charm!

This sizzle reel also features the first footage from The Eternals, which comes out this November. We’ve also got the first logos for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and The Marvels, the sequels to Black Panther and Captain Marvel respectively.

So yeah, big freakin’ deal, I’d say! Trailer looks great! Marvel has never skimped on those. I’m excited for all the upcoming movies, and I’m already back in the theaters, so you best believe I’ll be seeing all of these upcoming movies on the big screen.

It’s gonna be a busy couple of months. We’ve got Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, The Eternals and Spider-Man: Far From Home all coming out in the back half of this year. Of 2021!

And next year, we’ve got Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and The Marvels!

Then, so far, we’ve got Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 for 2023.

Should be a good couple of years!

Black Knight and U.S. Agent are Coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe

There was a bunch of cool Marvel Cinematic Universe news this weekend at the D23 Disney convention. We now know that Black Panther 2 is coming out in May 2022, for example. And there were some more Eternals cast members named.

But coolest news for me is that Kit Harrington has been cast as the Black Knight in the Eternals movie, and Wyatt Russell has been cast as U.S. Agent in the Falcon and the Winter Soldier TV show!

Black Knight Harrington 02

How cool is that?

US Agent Russell 01

I am loving the fact that so many nifty, smaller Marvel characters are getting cast to actually appear in things. Like David Harbour as the Red Guardian in the Black Widow movie.

Black Knight is an ancient knight from King Arthur times, who wields the Ebony Blade. Harrington is playing Dane Whitman, the modern day incarnation of the Black Knight. He is a longtime Avenger in the comics, though a minor character by far. He should be cool.

I’m more excited about U.S. Agent.

For those who don’t know, the U.S. Agent was the government’s replacement Cap when Steve Rogers abandoned the role back in the 1980s. He’s more of a company man than Rogers, often going to extremes to follow orders and be a good government boy. And it makes total sense in the MCU for the government to want their own replacement Captain America, and to not just let Sam Wilson take over because Steve Rogers said it’s OK.

I hope to see U.S. Agent as a friendly antagonist, someone how is opposed to Falcon and Bucky, but is still on the side of the good guys in the bigger picture. And perhaps they all have to work together in the end to take on Baron Zemo.
