Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek and more team up to tell a Marvel story unlike any
other so far.
The MCU will finally have significant, openly queer representation. Brian Tyree Henry stars as Phastos in Eternals, the first openly gay superhero in any Marvel movie, and Haaz Sleiman will play his husband.

Other Marvel films deal with space, but star Kumail Nanjiani says Eternals goes further: “In some ways, it’s the most sci-fi of all the Marvel movies and it’s the most epic... And the story spans thousands of years.”
Star Lia McHugh, who plays Sprite, says, “The scope and the budget are so incredible. We filmed in Spain on top of volcanoes and in London and all over the place.”
Two Thrones alums have roles in Eternals. Richard Madden (Robb Stark) will play Ikaris, and Kit Harington
(Jon Snow) will play Dane Whitman, a.k.a Black Knight.
