In the comics, the Eternals are an ancient race of powerful, super-human-esque cosmic beings who use their powers to promote a life of peace. They are at war with Deviants, who though genetically similar, have quite the opposite goal of inciting war. They clash inevitably and often, sometimes with humanity in the crossfire.
The Eternals is scheduled for November 6, 2020.
