Following the debut of the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy, Eternals is set to showcase another superhero team from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The upcoming Phase 4 entry is helmed by Academy Award-winning director Chloé Zhao, and it will feature a cosmic group of immortals that have lived on Earth for thousands of years. While the group stayed on human soil for a lengthy amount of time, marketing revealed that they didn't interfere with the planet's conflicts unless the Deviants were involved.
The powerful heroes will be portrayed by an all-star ensemble of actors and actresses including the likes of Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Salma Hayek, Gemma Chan, and Kit Harington.
Given that the film is still poised to release in theaters this November, the promotional drive for Eternals has been ramping up in the past weeks as evidenced by a wide array of interviews with the cast alongside the debut of official merchandise .
Now, a fresh wave of promotional materials for the highly-anticipated Phase 4 film has arrived.

The Fresh Faces Of the MCU
The latest batch of magazine covers managed to capture the massive ensemble of characters that Eternals will showcase.
At this stage, it is unknown how the cosmic team will be utilized to fit the film's narrative, but the trailers already teased that there are several scenes where all of them will be together. Given the number of characters involved, it will be interesting to see how Eternals will strike the right balance to give each member their respective chance to shine on the big screen.
It's possible that Eternals will focus on each of the individual members first, giving the spotlight to the likes of Angelina Jolie's Thena and Gemma Chan's Sersi before eventually reuniting them with the rest of the team.
Interestingly, this isn't the first time that Eternals has been showcased on exclusive magazine covers, as Entertainment Weekly first featured the characters back in August 2021. Despite that, many would agree that these promotional images offer a more detailed look at each hero's costume in the film.
Eternals is set to release in theaters on November 5, 2021.
