Marvel Studios, The Eternals, will now be premiered at the film festival circuit before releasing in the theatres on 5th November 2021. The detail was shared by the President of Physical and Post Production at the studio, Victoria Alonso. She revealed that the superhero epic, before making its way into the theatres, will first be screened at the Rome International film festival which is scheduled to start on 14th October.
Victoria was also seen recently revealing that Marvel is developing mind-blowing 31 television series and films currently.
She said, “We are currently working on 31 projects…It is a question about how are we handling multiple plates in the air at the same time, and the biggest thing is that sometimes the plates fall, and, you know, what are you going to do then? We want people to understand that the idea that we have, to tell these connected stories, it is important that the world knows that the characters we create, their stories have to do with how humans interact with each other.”
As the film inches closer to its releasing date, the studio has started releasing brand new images of its film character. One such poster was released featuring Kumail Nanjiani in his classic look. It was released on Empire magazine's cover.
The image gave a proper and detailed look at Nanjiani's character Kingo giving fans some idea of what they could expect in the film.
A few weeks ago, Kit Harrington who is set to play the role of Black Knight gave some important details about the character. In the interview, he did not reveal too much information but at the same time, he gave some hints.
He said, "He's not an Eternal. He's a character who works with the Natural History Museum in London. But he's not an Eternal - that's the main takeaway!" Harington added: "I've got no idea whether my character goes on or not. I had read up on who he could be or might be. So there's the possibility for a longer trajectory. And hopefully, I think this is the tip of the iceberg for my character. I hope. But I just don't know, you know? I'm as in the dark as anyone else. And I try not to live too far ahead in the future with anything. Even when I was in Game of Thrones, even on the sixth season, I presumed the seventh season wasn't going to happen!"
