Marvel’s Eternals takes some big swings. Directed by Chloé Zhao, the reigning winner of the Best Director Oscar for her movie Nomadland, Eternals introduced a whole swath of new characters all at once with a plethora of new powers. The movie is long on the basis of introducing so many new things, and even finds itself with a relatively unfamiliar setting for the Marvel Cinematic Universe—primarily in London.
Obviously, this is the MCU; if you want to keep up with everything, you’ll need to watch. In the future, the events of Eternals will tie into something, and you’ll almost certainly see these characters again. Luckily, those characters are played by a group of charismatic and charming actors, including Richard Madden, Gemma Chan, Angelina Jolie, Don Lee, Kumail Nanjiani, Salma Hayek, and Kit Harintgon, who plays a character who will certainly be showing up again in future MCU projects.
If you missed Eternals the first time, don’t worry—the movie is now available to watch in the comfort of your own home. And once you get caught up on the movie—and make sure you don’t miss the two credits scenes—you can join us in thinking about whether our new friend Ikaris (Madden) could take down our old friends Superman, Homelander, or Omni-Man.
How to Watch Eternals
The easiest way to watch Eternals now is by subscribing to Disney+ and just hitting play. As of January 12, 2021, the movie is streaming along with almost every other movie in the MCU (notably excluded: the Spider-Man films, which remain in the Sony vault, and 2008’s The Incredible Hulk, which has its rights retained by Universal).
Stream Eternals on Disney+
Eventually, the movie will also be available to rent on services such as Amazon and Google Play (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is now available there), but Disney+ survivors get first dibs.
