Marvel fans should get hyped as the synopsis for Eternals has released and it seems to take place after Avengers: Endgame.
The new synopsis was released by Disney Studios as they released previews for their 2020 films.
The new synopsis goes as follows:
Marvel Studios’ The Eternals features an exciting new team of Super-Heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ancient aliens who have been living on Earth in secret for thousands of years. Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, an unexpected tragedy forces them out of the shadows to reunite against mankind’s most ancient enemy, The Deviants.
The synopsis continues as the actors and their roles are listed:
The outstanding ensemble cast include Richard Madden as the all-powerful Ikaris, Gemma Chan as humankind-loving Sersi, Kumail Nanjiani as the cosmic-powered Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as the super-fast Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as the intelligent inventor Phastos, Salma Hayak as the wise and spiritual leader Ajak, Lia McHugh as the eternally young, old-coul Sprite, Don Lee as the powerful Gilgamesh, Barry Keoghan as the aloof longer Druig, and Angelina Jolie as the fierce warrior Thena. Kit Harrington was cast as Dane Whitman.
“Directed by Chloe Zhao, who helmed the critically acclaimed Sundance film The Rider, and produced by Kevin Feige, The Eternals opens in U.S. theaters on November 6, 2020.”
According to the synopsis released, The Eternals will take place after Endgame. This is shocking since many speculated Eternals would be a prequel that would take place years before the MCU.
Since the film is post-Endgame and post-Infinity War, it would be interesting to see how those films will shape the new Eternals movie. However, since this synopsis is all anyone has to go over with now, fans will have to wait and see how it all plays out.
