Marvel’s Eternal will give Marvel Cinematic Universe its third big-screen superhero team. Directed by Chloe Zhao, the movie was officially confirmed at SDCC 2019 with a November 2020 release date. Starring Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Richard Madden and many more, it will be the second film of Marvel Studios Phase -4 which will tell the story of Eternals, an immortal race of super – powered beings created by the celestials, which were being introduced in MCU Guardians of the Galaxy.
Millions of years ago, comic-gods like being knwon as the Celestials came to Earth and experimented with human DNA. The product of their experimenation was the creation of two offshoots of the human race, the Eternals and Deviants. The immortal Eternals are vastly superior to both the human race and the genetically deformed Deviants. Since Eternals physically resembles humans, they have found easy to live amongst humans secretly, whereas Deviants have been forced to live underground.
Earth isn’t the only home of Eternals. Some of them split off and settled in other areas of universe, such as Saturn’s moon, Titan and various other planets. As eternal civilzation expanaded and developed, they were eventually Titanian, Uranian, Polar and Olympian branches of the species. The Polar and Olympian are both based on Earth, with the main group settled in the mountains of Greece in the idden city of Olympia.
POWERS AND ABILITIES
The Eternals are potentially the most powerful race in Marvel Universe. They are nearly unkillable, this group of immortals are fueled by cosmic energy that grants them a shared set of powers. Every eternal is gifted with super strength, telepathy, and can levitate, shoot beam of energy out of their eyes, teleport and can maniplate matter.
However despite this shared set of powers, not all Eternals are exactly same in terms of their abilities. Since their cosmic energy is the source of their powers, they can channel it in diferent ways to suit their own interests. This means that some Eternals have honed one or more abilities to make them better than others.
