The storyline will take back to Babylon which means that Eternals takes place earlier than any other film within the timeline of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
"It really is about the beginnings of the Marvel universe, so we're telling a story...he [Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige] says spans thousands of years, " Eternals star Kumail Nanjiani told the press at D23. "Before, you know, Captain America was the oldest member we've seen and now, it's going to be way, way, way back so it really going to be the building blocks of the MCU."
The cast of Eternals includes Angelina Jolie (Thena), Richard Madden (Ikaris), Lauren Ridloff (Makkari), Brian Tyree Henry (Phastos), Salma Hayek (Ajak), Lia McHugh (Sprite), Don Lee (Gilgamesh), Kit Harington (Dane Whitman/Black Knight), Gemma Chan (Sersi), Barry Keoghan (Druig) and Kumail Nanjiani (Kingo).
