What does it mean to be human in our short time on this planet? This is the question at the heart of 'Eternals', the upcoming release from Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The film will span the course of over 7000 years, though focusing mainly on the events following 'Avengers: Endgame', when an unexpected tragedy forces these inmortal beings to come out of hiding for their final showdown against their age-old enemies, the Deviants. The film is directed by Chloé Zhao ('The Rider') and the cast is boasts names such as Angelina Jolie (Thena, 'Maleficent'), Richard Madden (Ikaris, 'Game of Thrones'), Kumail Nanjiani (Kingo, 'The Big Sick'), Salma Hayek (Ajak, 'The Hummingbird Project'), Kit Harington (Dane Whitman/Dark Knight, 'Game of Thrones'), Gemma Chan (Sersi, 'Crazy Rich Asians'), Brian Tyree Henry (Phastos, 'If Beale Street Could Talk'), Dong-seok Ma (Gilgamesh, 'Train to Busan'), Lia McHugh (Sprite, 'The Lodge') and Lauren Ridloff (Makkari, 'The Walking Dead').
