THE ETERNALS Cast Comes Together In First Official Portrait From EW

Following Marvel's official announcement of The Eternals, the cast — including Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Brian Tyree Henry, Lia McHugh, and Don Lee - have taken an official portrait.

Marvel's Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con officially introduced the cast of The Eternals, and exciting new team of super heroes who will join the Marvel Cinematic Universe next year.

The upcoming film will be directed by Chloé Zhao and will star Angelina Jolie (Thena), Richard Madden (Icarus), Kumail Nanjiani (Kingo), Lauren Ridloff (Makkari), Brian Tyree Henry (Phastos), Salma Hayek (Ajak), Lia McHugh (Sprite), and Don Lee (Gilgamesh).

Following the panel, the star-studded cast gathered one more time at EW's Comic-Con 2019 portrait studio to take an official photo together. Unfortunately, they aren't in costume, but it's our best look yet at what director Chloé Zhao referred to as "this group of incredible immortals."

Each of the stars had a chance to say something during the Hall H presentation, with Jolie — who is easily one of the biggest names attached to the project — promising to work "10 times harder because I think what it means to be a part of the MCU, what it means to be an Eternal, to be a part of this family, I know what we all need to do."

"We have all read the script. We have all know what the task ahead is and we are all going to be working very very hard. I’m training. I am thrilled. Thank you so much," she added.




“It’s about this group of incredible immortals, but through their journey, we really get to explore what it means to be human and humanity on our time on this planet,” Zhao teased of the film.

“The Eternals are a race of immortal aliens sent to Earth by the Celestials to protect humankind from the Deviants,” offered Madden. 

Filming on The Eternals is already underway in London, with the film set to hit theaters on November 6, 2020.
