The two-minute featurette contained some impressive new shots of the film. It also included a brief interview with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, who promises that the movie will “redefine the MCU as we know it.”
In a separate interview with Fandango, director Chloé Zhao confirmed that it will have two mid/post-credit scenes. The Oscar-winning filmmaker also talked about how the MCU’s origins will be explored.
“I think a big part of it is that audiences will be discovering the origin of the MCU through the mythology of the Celestials. I think by the end of the film, we will have a new understanding of planet Earth’s relationship with the cosmos, and also with her own inhabitants. But in that sense, it would have a huge effect on the future of the MCU.”
Set to be released on November 5th, Eternals will star Gemma Chan as Sersi, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Barry Keoghan as Druig, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, Salma Hayek as Ajak, and Angelina Jolie as Thena.
The film’s running time has also been officially confirmed to be two hours and 37 minutes, making it the the second longest film in the MCU.
