Eternals Marketing gets funny with Kumail Najiani trailer
A new trailer for Marvel Studios’ upcoming film, Eternals, shows Kumail Nanjiani’s Kingo in a footage-style clip found with other members of the team.
A new trailer for Marvel Studios’ Eternals shows Kingo (Kumail Nanjiani) hilariously making his way through a cave in a found footage style video. Eternals will be the latest addition to the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe. This will be the third film in Phase 4 of the MCU and the 26th overall. Reviews have recently been posted for the film, and it is currently the lowest-rated MCU film on Rotten Tomatoes. While reviews keep coming and will continue to do so until its release, Eternals could end up being the only Marvel Studios movie to get a “Rotten” rating, with many blaming it for trying to move away from the MCU formula with mixed results.
Eternals follows a group of ancient beings from space who have been on Earth for 7,000 years. They oversaw many historical events that took place around this time, but were not involved in anything that happened. Instead, the Eternals were sent to Earth to protect humans from a race called the Deviants, and only get involved in anything that concerns them to stop them. Deviants are a group of creatures who focus on destroying humanity in order to get what they want. The Eternals were created by beings called Celestials, space titans with divine powers who entrusted their task to the heroes.
Now a new trailer has been posted online for Eternals, and it shows a subgenre of a movie that’s not very common in the MCU. In the trailer posted by News from the Eternals, Nanjiani’s character, Kingo, is seen walking through a tunnel or cave with the other Eternals, talking to the camera and making jokes about Brian Tyree Henry’s character, Phastos, being afraid even though he is an Eternal. Check out the full trailer below:
Even though it wasn’t very long, this new trailer for Eternals shows how different the MCU will be after the release of Avengers: Endgame. From the start, Marvel Studios has made it very clear that this movie is a new take on the superhero formula. Like the other inputs of phase 4, Eternals appears to be a new style of MCU movie, leaning into the sci-fi elements of these new superheroes. It will also be interesting to see how the Eternals have been around for so many years, but have not been involved in any events. Typically, Marvel Studios has an origin story when introducing new characters or teams, but this film will instead focus primarily on an already disbanded and ultimately re-established team.
The trailer apparently teases a cameraman who follows Kingo, who can be seen briefly in some clips. The footage is similar to Spider-Man’s recordings of major MCU events, such as when he filmed the fight at the airport in Captain America: Civil War. While this is an incredibly small part of the film, the approach to the footage found might be more prevalent in Eternals. Kingo is a Bollywood star these days, so the cameraman could follow Kingo to document the adventure of the Eternals. Fans will have to see how exactly these found images are integrated. Eternals when he comes out.
