, Brian Tyree Henry and more, Eternals
introduces us to a league of 10 superpower-wielding, immortal warriors who were sent to Earth 7,000 years ago by the godlike Celestials and have been secretly defending humanity from the monstrous Deviants ever since. Present during the rise of civilisation but forbidden from intervening, the Eternals have witnessed all of humanity’s catastrophic moments – the Babylonian War and Hiroshima included – right up until the point where we meet our heroine, museum curator Sersi (Chan
), in present-day Camden Lock. Most of the Eternals, like Sersi, have assimilated into human life – most comically of all Kingo (Nanjiani
), who has escaped human detection of his eternal youth for centuries by hiding as five generations of a huge Bollywood acting dynasty.
