“We have watched and guided. We have helped them progress and seen them accomplish
Throughout the years we have never interfered… until now,” Ajak said.
The trailer also showed a glimpse of the characters and events after Captain America and Iron Man left during Avengers: Endgame.
Despite its less popularity, The Eternals will play the roles of superheroes who have not to receive enough spotlights yet. This follows the Marvel Studios’ plan for 2014 Guardians of the Galaxy.
The Eternals on Chloe Zhao’s Perspective
Meanwhile, the newest Academy Award winner Chloe Zhao will lead the whole film. In an interview with Variety, she revealed how changing Hayek’s character lets her combat ageism in Hollywood.
“I can’t take all the credits. When [executive producer] Nate Moore Nrst showed me the treatment, which he worked on with [writers] Kaz Firpo and Ryan Firpo, I was impressed with the age diversity of the characters they put together, and it was a big part of what got me really excited about ‘Eternals,’” the director said.
Hayek will also make a record for being a Mexican woman to appear as a superhero. According to the actress, her participation will make people feel they are seen.
Because of Zhao’s involvement, Marvel Boss Kevin Feige alleged that The Eternals will also grab an Academy Award soon.
“I’m excited to answer your questions about the future. I’d also like to give you a few quotes about when ‘Eternals’ wins best picture, and when ‘Avengers 5’ is the biggest movie of all time – so let’s bank those quotes as well,” Feige said.
