    Marvel Just Dropped The Final "Eternals" Trailer, And Now We Know Why They Didn't Help Defeat Thanos

    It's time to meet our new favorite group of MCU heroes: the Eternals.

    Hi, hello, it's me. This year has been jam-packed with Marvel content, and as we head toward the end of the year, it's not slowing down anytime soon.

    While Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is next up for the MCU, it's already time to start getting pumped for Marvel's Eternals, which will hit theaters in November.

    Directed by Academy Award winner Chloé Zhao and written by Kaz and Ryan Firpo, Patrick Burleigh, and Chloe, Eternals will follow the Eternals, who have secretly been living on Earth for over 7,000 years and have been tasked with protecting humans from the Deviants.

    This epic new movie kicks off when the Eternals are forced to come back together in order to stop a new threat.

    So, like everyone, I've been dying to know where the heck the Eternals were while the Avengers were battling Thanos — listen, our team won in the end, but a little extra help couldn't have hurt.

    Well, Marvel just dropped the final trailer for Eternals, and it quickly addresses where they all were during Avengers: Endgame and why they didn't lend a helping hand.

    Sersi, an Eternal played by Gemma Chan, explains that the Eternals were told not to interfere with human conflicts — which included the Avengers fighting Thanos — UNLESS the Deviants were involved.

    And they were told so by...the Celestials. Although they don't name-drop them in the trailer, in the comics, the Celestials are cosmic beings who created both the Eternals and the Deviants.

    The trailer also gives us a hint about a new conflict that has emerged after Thanos, and I'm already yelling about it.

    Ajak, an Eternal played by Salma Hayek, explains that when Hulk snapped half the population back into existence in Endgame, it "provided the necessary energy for the Emergence to begin."

    Now, based on the trailer, the Emergence is a new apocalyptic event that seems to include the return of the Deviants, the Eternals' longtime rivals, and/or the Celestials coming back into play.

    Either way, this is going to be HUGE for the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Phase Four, and I simply cannot wait to see how this movie plays out.

    Okay, enough of my nerdy yelling. Below is the final trailer for Eternals so you can watch it on a loop like me and simply marvel at how gorgeous and epic it looks:
