Marvel’s Eternals got its first full trailer on Monday, and it seems to run their many years living in hiding on Earth. The Marvel Cinematic Universe movie is directed by Chloé Zhao, who recently won a pair of Oscars for Nomadland, and hits theaters on Nov. 5

The immortal aliens apparently integrated into various Earth cultures and quietly helped humanity progress without interfering directly. The events of Avengers: Endgame convince them to step into the spotlight, and Sprite (Lia McHugh) wonders aloud who’ll lead that team now that Steve Rogers and Iron Man are both gone.

“I could lead them,” says Ikaris (Richard Madden), which earns a laugh from his fellow Eternals.

The team also includes Angelina Jolie as Thena, Barry Keoghan as Druig, Gemma Chan as Sersi, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari,  Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos and Don Lee as Gilgamesh. Kit Harington plays human character Dane Whitman, who becomes sword-wielding hero Black Knight in the comics.

Eternals will be the 26th Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, and the third film in the MCU’s Phase Four.

We didn’t get any MCU movies in 2020, but they’re coming back in a big way in the latter half of 2021 — along with Eternals, Black Widow is coming to theaters and Disney Plus Premiere Access in July, with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings hitting theaters in September and Spider-Man: No Way Home following in December.
