ETERNALS: New Promo Art Leaks As Director Chloe Zhao Reveals Surprising Source Of Inspiration

Some more promo art and an updated title logo for Marvel's Eternals have been revealed via some official merchandise, with the former giving us an awesome, stylized new look at the cosmic superhero team...

Marvel has yet to release any official stills or posters for Eternals, but because the movie was originally supposed to hit theatres last November before being pushed back by a full year, promo and merchandise art continues to find its way online.

This time we have a look an updated title logo courtesy of a crew cap, and a stylized look at the team via a Walmart plate and bowl set.

In related news, director Chloe Zhao has revealed a surprising source of inspiration for the film's action sequences: Alejandro Iñárritu's 2015 Revisionist Western, The Revenant.

“Well, there’s multiple films for Eternals. I had to assign a few because of the scale of the film. But I think for the action sequences, which I just had such a great time working on with such a great team, I wanted to reference The Revenant a lot,” Zhao tells The Playlist. "The Revenant is a film that I love so much. And I think we’ve watched The Revenant so many times, every meeting when we come to our action sequences because most of those sequences are shot on location. And I love how immersive and the way how you feel the dash and sequences in The Revenant. It’s definitely a film that we aspire to. And Marvel really, really supported that idea and really went for it.”

Well, consider us even more intrigued! Zhao's latest film, Nomadland, is now in theaters and streaming on Hulu, and is well worth checking out.

The cosmic superhero adventure stars Richard Madden as the all-powerful Ikaris, Gemma Chan as humankind-loving Sersi, Kumail Nanjiani as the cosmic-powered Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as the super-fast Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as the intelligent inventor Phastos, Salma Hayak as the wise and spiritual leader Ajak, Lia McHugh as the eternally young Sprite, Don Lee as the powerful Gilgamesh, Barry Keoghan as the aloof Druig, and Angelina Jolie as the fierce warrior Thena. Kit Harrington will also appear as Dane Whitman, aka Black Knight.

Marvel Studios' Eternals features an exciting new team of Super Heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ancient aliens who have been living on Earth in secret for thousands of years. Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, an unexpected tragedy forces them out of the shadows to reunite against mankind's most ancient enemy, The Deviants.
