Eternals looks set to introduce a lot of new characters to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, while another big romance promises to take centre stage in the movie. It feels like a while since Marvel Studios has told a good old fashioned love story, but we're not sure how well things for Ikaris and Sersi will end now Dane Whitman has entered the picture. 

Regardless, this timeless romance between the two Eternals is the main focus of these new stills. 

During a recent interview with Indie Wire, director Chloé Zhao opened up on the importance of including a sex scene in the MCU (a franchise first). "For us to be able to show two people who love each other, not just emotionally and intellectually but also physically, and to have a sex scene that will be seen by a lot of people that shows their love and compassion and gentleness - I think it’s a really beautiful thing," the filmmaker explains.

We're assuming the scene in question involves Ikaris and Sersi, though some of the early reactions did point out that it's very tame (so don't expect anything too raunchy for a Disney movie). 

Take a look at these new Eternals stills below:

Eternals is the MCU's latest team-up, and features a group of heroes from beyond the stars who had protected the Earth since the dawn of man. When the Deviants, long thought lost to history, mysteriously return, the Eternals are forced to reunite in order to defend humanity once again.

Chloé Zhao directs Eternals, and Kevin Feige and Nate Moore are the producers, with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso and Kevin de la Noy serving as executive producers. The story is by Ryan Firpo & Matthew K. Firpo, and the screenplay is by Chloé Zhao and Patrick Burleigh.

The Marvel Studios movie stars 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, Salma Hayek as Ajak, and Angelina Jolie as Thena.

Eternals is set to be released on November 5.
