Sometimes it seems like millennia have passed since Marvel Studios announced for the first time that the unknown Eternals would star in their own movie. But that movie is finally less than a month away, just round the corner from the proverbial, but there is still some hype to be made. There is a new clip to check out, a very elegant one to guide to some of the Eternals themselves, and just a taste of a star Kumail Nanjiani be awesome.
Let’s get clip out of the way first; IIt’s titled “Run” and it’s an expanded version of the scene from the trailer where the Eternals save a young child from the Deviants:
I really assumed the clip was called “Run” because either Ikaris (Richard Madden) or Kingo (Nanjiani) would have told this stupid kid to run, but it’s clear.s referring to the super-speed of Makkari (The walking dead‘s Lauren Ridloff), which she uses to save the child and bring the rest of the primitive humans under attack to safety.
Sadly, Makkari is not yet among the Eternals featured in these tiny but very stylish bio videos from Marvel’s HQ YouTube channel. But given that the Eternals are still not well known (whether in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or the real worldd) you might be spending your time less productively. Here are Sersi (Gemma Chan), Ajak (Salma Hayek) and Kingo:
You can head here to watch the Ikaris and Thena videos, and then you can keep an eye out because Sprite (Lia McHugh), Phastos (Brian Tyree Henry), Gilgamesh (Don Lee), Druig (Barry Keoghan) and Makkari are on the way.
Finally, Kingo and Ajak’s Quirk ego were on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to promote the movie and, uh, talk about Keanu Reeves’ ass, apparently. But they also discussed Kingo’s superpower, which as you can see in the clip at the top is unmistakably finger guns, and were called so on set by director Chloé Zhao herself (it starts at 8.45am in the video):
I’ve always known deep down that the actors playing these superheroes have to do some really wacky things to deliver the images that are augmented with visual effects to look like awesome powers. But the idea of poor Kumail Nanjiani literally pretending his hands were guns, like a child would, during the entire filming of the movie, is absolutely bonkers. It’s going to be quite impossible for me not to think about it every time Kingo blows up something in Eternals– and now you too, most likely. Nothing! Eternals hits theaters on November 5.
