A new set of leaked promotional materials from Marvel’s Eternals have shown off the cast in their superhero outfits.

Directed by Chloé Zhao, Eternals tells the story of the powerful, almost-immortal titular celestial beings who have existed for thousands of years.

With a star-studded cast and a cosmic story that has endless potential, it’s arguably the most exciting addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in years.

The highly-anticipated entry into Phase 4 of the MCU was supposed to be released in cinemas on November 6, 2020. Like many other movies scheduled to premiere this year, it’s been pushed back – first to February 12, 2021, and then once again to November 5, 2021.

While this means fans have got a whole extra year to wait for Eternals to hit the big screen, there have been several leaks and teasers to keep us satisfied in the meantime (remember those rumors that Harry Styles will appear as Starfox?).

Most recently, French promotional material for the movie has been shared by Twitter user yeezkie which gives us a better look at the Eternals team lined up together and in costume.

From left to right, that’s Lia McHugh as Sprite, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Ma Dong-seok as Gilgamesh, Gemma Chan as Sersi, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Angelina Jolie as Thena, Barry Keoghan as Druig, and Lauren Ridloff as Makkari.

Another promotional image shared by a Brazilian Marvel fan account appears to show Richard Madden in character as Ikaris, which you can see below.

We’re still waiting to see what Game of Thrones star Kit Harington will look like as Black Knight. Hopefully, we’ll get a look at him soon enough, and maybe even a teaser trailer in the next few months.

There’s a year until we find out what happens in Marvel’s Eternals, but fans have a lot to look forward to before then. Black Widow is hitting cinemas on May 7, 2021, and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is due for release on July 9, 2021.

As far as 2020 goes, we’re still hoping to see WandaVision on Disney+ before the year is out. While we wait patiently for an official release date, you can find everything we know about WandaVision – including casting, potential plot details, and rumors – right here.

Doctor Strange director says all versions of Spider-Man exist in MCU

The director of Doctor Strange has added weight to the theory that a Spider-Man crossover is in the works for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

There have been several iterations of Spider-Man on the big screen over the last few decades. First, we saw Tobey Maguire in Sam Raimi’s original cinematic trilogy, then we had Andrew Garfield in The Amazing Spider-Man, and now we have Tom Holland in the MCU.

For a long time, it was assumed that they all existed in their own separate universes, and the prospect of them crossing over seemed like fan-fiction. But recent rumors have suggested otherwise, with talk of Maguire, Garfield, and Holland joining forces through the multiverse.

Will Tom Holland be joined by Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire in the MCU?

Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson has now added fuel to the fire, as he tweeted on November 23 that “all Spider-Man iterations are defacto MCU”.

The comment came after Warcraft director Duncan Jones shared an image of Spider-Pig from Sony’s acclaimed animation Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and a fan questioned whether the character was really a part of the MCU.

Jones asked for confirmation from Derrickson, as “tangential connections through portals” are covered in the Doctor Strange universe, and the director offered up his belief that every portrayal of Spider-Man is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Serious or not, the tweet has got fans talking. “My God will I see Tobey [Maguire] again?” asked one fan, while another joked, “MULTIVERSE CONFIRMED!”

Are the rumors of a multiverse in Spider-Man 3 true?

Earlier this year, it was confirmed that Jamie Foxx will return to portray Electro – a role he originally played in the Andrew Garfield-led Amazing Spider-Man series – while Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange will also make an appearance, leading to multiverse speculation.

When asked whether Andrew and Tobey would be returning in Spider-Man 3, Sony simply replied, “those rumored castings are not confirmed”. It’s not a confirmation, but it’s also not outright denial, so there may still be hope…
