The epidemic has caused all major film studios to cease their ongoing works for the time being or postpone their pending releases. The same is the case with Marvel Studios, who, after doing the same for Black Widow, have now pushed back the release of their second Phase 4 film, Eternal.
In the comics, Eternals is a super-powered alien race, created as a result of experiments conducted by the all-powerful Celestials. Originally, Ertanels share their genes with humans. They are practically immortal and their main enemies are another genetically engineered race, known as goddesses.
The biggest thing Eternals has seen on the big screen is Mad Titan Thanos, which is only part-internal. Therefore, it may be a challenge for non-comic fans to bring a new concept to life, but Marvel has already done that with the likes of Doctor Strange and the Guardians, so it’s safe to assume that they can do it again will do.
Here’s what we have so far on the upcoming Eternals film.
When and what does a Marvel fan expect from a film?

What is the movie about?
Nothing about the plot has been shared or leaked by the studio, so it’s hard to guess what the film will actually be about. However, we have reason to believe that one of the adversaries will be the crew, as evident from a leaked Marvel toy.
The film will be directed by Chloe Zhao, and the screenplay is written by Ryan and Matthew Firpo.
