Movie Preview: Marvel goes to the Well again, “Eternals”

They gave Oscar winner Chloe Zhao (“Nomadland”) her biggest check, lined up Jolie and Hayek as “names” and pulled together an “X-Men: First Class” sized ensemble of young superheroes to be super-heroic.

Gemma Chan, Brian Tyree Henry, Barry Keoghan, Kit Harrington and Kumail Nanjiani ensure this is a seriously diverse cast.

Not the most “box office” ensemble ever assembled, but it’s “Marvel” that sells these things.

“Eternals,” opening in November, promises to be another test of the modern post-“Avengers” pandemic comic book movie marketing model.
