Marvel has dropped a new trailer for its upcoming action-packed movie Eternals, giving eager fans further glimpses of the MCU’s first-ever openly gay superhero.
Brian Tyree Henry’s Phastos is a gay alien inventor extraordinaire who has been secretly helping humanity progress technologically from the shadows. Even though he isn’t in the newly-dropped trailer, actor Haaz Sleiman previously confirmed that he will play Phastos’ husband, and the pair will be featured in some capacity in the full-length movie.
In the latest Eternals trailer, Marvel fans learn more about the immortal humanoid aliens, the Eternals, and meet their dangerous counterparts, the Deviants.
The nearly three-minute trailer opens with Salma Hayek as her character Ajak, the powerful spiritual leader, explaining that the movie takes place five years after Thanos’ snap erased half of all life and the Avengers’ subsequent undoing of this in Avengers: Endgame.
