The upcoming Marvel film “Eternals” will redefine the Marvel Cinematic Universe, according to Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios.

Feige said in a new “Eternals” featurette that the new Marvel film will have a tremendous impact on what’s going to happen next in the MCU.

  • “The impact that ‘Eternals’ will have on the MCU will be nothing less than redefining the cinematic universe,” Feige said.

Fresh details about “Eternals” came out this week. For example, “Eternals” director Chloé Zhao told Fandango that “Eternals” is one of the longest Marvel Cinematic Universe films to date.

  • “You know, it’s ten characters, the Celestials and 7,000 years. There’s a lot going on,” she said.

Zhao said the movie will have two post-credits scenes that will matter to the overall MCU, too.

  • “Don’t just stay for the first one — also stay for the second one, too. They are equally as important in weight, and both have big surprises for you,” she said.

The film will have a major cast and a boatload of characters. The ensemble cast includes Gemma Chan as Sersi, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Barry Keoghan as Druig, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, with Kit Harington as Dane Whitman, Salma Hayek as Ajak and Angelina Jolie as the fierce warrior Thena. 

Marvel Studios’ “Eternals” drops in U.S. theaters on Nov. 5.
