The Eternals

Marvel's Eternals will be one of the more unique films in the upcoming Phase 4, introducing an all-new cast of characters to the MCU. The film was delayed to November 5, 2021, which has resulted in a few marketing remnants emerging from the film's original date.

The film has subsequently been subjected to numerous leaks as of late, one of which provided a stylized look at the Eternals all together. Another leak showed an image of Richard Madden costumed up as Ikaris, who looks as though he will fit right in amongst other MCU heroes.

Other leaks also revealed a first look at the film's villains, in addition to teasing the global threat that they pose.

A new leak has now provided an even better look at another Eternals member...


Shared by Twitter users @ETERNALSnews and @EternalsTalks, a new piece of marketing material leaked from Eternals. The image itself features images of the Eternals, as well as a bit of information about the team itself:

The image also features a spot-the-difference with Kumail Nanjiani's Kingo, which provides a closer look at his costume:

The text roughly translates to:

Here are the Eternals.

The Eternals are an extraterrestrial, immortal species that come from a far away planet and who arrived on Earth thousands of years ago. These superheroes have protected humanity since the dawn of time.

The Eternals possess incredible strength and the power to fly. Some of them even have other additional powers. 

Coming in 2021...

The return of the Deviants, a race of alien predators, pushes the Eternals to unite their powers. Working as a team, they can save the world!


Kingo's new outfit retains the main aesthetic of the costume from the original Eternals concept art, but has been updated for the big screen. The suit now features more armored plating on Kingo's shoulders and wrists, in addition to more pronounced golden grooves that line the costume. The suit also seems to be more vibrant in color, though this may be up to artistic license with the graphic design.

The description indicates that the Eternals themselves will have a similar power level across the board, all possessing super strength and flight at the very least. There will be some differences, though, which has already been seen with Lauren Ridloff's Makkari, who also has super speed.

Kumail Nanjiani's Kingo, and the rest of the Eternals, can be seen when the film releases theatrically on November 5, 2021.
