Marvel has several exciting new movies on the way this year, but none of them is more epic and star-studded than Eternals. The first trailer for this highly-anticipated superhero flick is here, and it promises an amazing adventure that is truly worth the wait.

Directed by the Oscar-winning filmmaker Chloé Zhao, the new trailer offers the first full look at the star-studded ensemble of this project. The cast is led by Richard Madden as Ikaris, Gemma Chan as Sersi, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Salma Hayek as Ajak, and Angelina Jolie as Thena.

According to Marvel’s official logline, Eternals is an “epic story, spanning thousands of years, [which] features a group of immortal heroes forced out of the shadows to reunite against mankind’s oldest enemy, The Deviants.” The story is set after the events of Avengers: Endgame and the trailer offers a hilarious quip about the connection between these two universes.

Eternals is scheduled to be released on November 5th, as one of the first movies in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It will be preceded by Black Widow and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, both set to premiere later this summer.
