With the release of Black Widow this coming May, Marvel Studios will say goodbye to iconic heroes such as Iron Man and Captain America as it begins its “Phase 4”.
Speaking to Omelete following Marvel Studios’ panel at CCXP in Brazil, Kevin Feige discussed further plot details about the mysterious Eternals, which will be the second film in Phase 4 and the 25th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe overall.
Feige said that Eternals will take place over 7,000 years as the characters go to different periods in time, which is a smart move. If you have a movie named “Eternals”, you probably don’t want it to span a weekend, but to show why these characters are unique in the MCU.
While we knew that the Celestials would be in Eternals—and in fact, we glimpsed the severed head of a celestial, Knowhere, in Guardians of the Galaxy, Feige says we will see them in Eternals “in their full, true, enormous power.” He also revealed that The Deviants will be introduced in Eternals, but will look very different than their comics counterpart.

The Eternals will be made up of characters such as Thena, Ikaris, Kingo, Makkari, Phastos, Jaka, Sprite, Gilgamesh, Druig, Sersi, and Black Knight.
Directed by Chloé Zhao, Eternals stars an ensemble cast that includes Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, Lia McHugh, Don Lee, Barry Keoghan, Gemma Chan, and Kit Harington.
Eternals is set to be released in theaters in the United States on November 6, 2020.
