After no new releases during the pandemic in 2020, Marvel Studios is back on their A-Game with the first trailer for Oscar-winning director Chloé Zhao's reportedly queer-inclusive, action-packed film The Eternals

"The epic story, spanning thousands of years, features a group of immortal heroes forced out of the shadows to reunite against mankind’s oldest enemy, The Deviants," the film's official description reads. "The outstanding ensemble cast includes Richard Madden as the all-powerful Ikaris, Gemma Chan as humankind-loving Sersi, Kumail Nanjiani as cosmic-powered Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as the super-fast Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as the intelligent inventor Phastos, Salma Hayek as the wise and spiritual leader Ajak, Lia McHugh as the eternally young, old-soul Sprite, Don Lee as the powerful Gilgamesh, Barry Keoghan as aloof loner Druig, and Angelina Jolie as the fierce warrior Thena. Kit Harington plays Dane Whitman."

Queer Marvel fans have been waiting for on-screen representation for A LONG TIME, so The Eternals can't come soon enough! Back in 2019, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told Good Morning America during the D23 Expo that the film was going to have an explicitly gay, married superhero, a first for the popular Disney-owned studio known for its robust roster of comic-themed live-action films.

"He's married, he's got a family, and that is just part of who he is," Feige told Good Morning America about a then mysterious gay character.

Then in early 2020, gay actor Haaz Sleiman confirmed who the mysterious queer characters was when he said he would be playing the husband of Brian Tyree Henry's Phastos.

"I just shot a Marvel film with the first openly gay superhero, The Eternals," Sleiman told NewNowNext about his role. "I’m married to the gay superhero Phastos, played by Atlanta’s Brian Tyree Henry, and we represent a gay family and have a child."

The Eternals hits theaters on November 5! Watch the first full trailer below!
