Eternals – Just over 7,000 years ago, 10 superbeings were created by a Celestial named Arishem to protect the universe from creatures known as the Deviants. Led by Ajak (Salma Hayek), the team includes Sersi (Gemma Chan), Ikaris (Richard Madden), Thena (Angelina Jolie), Kingo (Kumail Nanjiani), Sprite (Lia McHugh), Phastos (Brian Tyree Henry), Makkari (Lauren Ridloff), Druig (Barry Keoghan) and Gilgamesh (Don Lee). However, as they were created only to step in when people are threatened by Deviants, the Eternals have never been able to stop the atrocities committed by humans against other humans, which creates conflicts within their ranks.
