I know it's contiunity and a general style guide for the MCU and all that but those outfits look awfully bland and nothing like The Eternals I know (which is only Jack's original '70s run, admittedly). Is there any talk of the general plot yet?

What if its actually because Feige lost his Inhumans movie to Marvel TV and he's trying to plug them into the hole in his master plan that that left?

Replacing the X-Men with the Inhumans was Perlmutter’s deal, and the fact that THE INHUMANS went away right after Feige no longer had to report to him makes it seem like Marvel Studios dropped THE INHUMANS rather than them losing it.

The Black Knight in the Eternals makes me very curious where they are taking this movie.

I just hope they don’t make him British. Just because he was in CAPTAIN BRITAIN for a loooooooooooooong storyline, it doesn’t make him a subject of the realm.

I think it has to come down to what is the core of the character. The Dane Whitman character is American, though in the written page, we would tend to read a neutral voice in our own accent. Does being American speak to the core of the character? Or does a British accent gibe more easily with the Arthurian roots of the character? I have no clear view on this.

The Black Knight being in this raises my interest from practically nothing to slight. If they're tying the Black Knight to Sersi it's an interesting use of the 90s dynamic. I doubt we're getting the Gatherers story line. So I'm not sure how they'll set everything up.

The Eternals mostly have the same powers and barely defined personalities/histories. Since Marvel Studios has shown a willingness to reorient things as needed that could be a good thing or a ride down a dead end road. I still find them mostly boring as a concept but it's hard to deny the long line of successes to date that Marvel has had.

Maybe we'll get some freaky Deviants in there to distract. I think they're going to need every bit of spectacle they can get.

The Eternals seems like its going to give of big doses of the Celestials.  I’m REALLY looking forward to that!
