An oh-so-tiny new look at The Eternals has arrived, courtesy of a behind-the-scenes photo posted online by Gilgamesh actor Don Lee.
Lee took to Instagram to share some things from the set of Chloe Zhao’s Marvel Phase 4 movie, including a welcome letter from Marvel Studios, a swanky trailer and – what’s this? – a previously-unseen piece of artwork from The Eternals.

Yes, it is incredibly tiny, but we’ve gone all computer, enhance on that bad boy and it appears to be the first ever group shot featuring all of The Eternals, though you can’t quite make out who’s who as they’re shrouded in darkness.
Perhaps more interesting (and certainly more clear) is the presence of the six distinct lights behind The Eternals. They resemble the face of Eson the Searcher, a Celestial – essentially one of the gods of the MCU – who was previously spied wielding the Power Stone in The Collector’s exposition-heavy sequence explaining the Infinity Stones in Guardians of the Galaxy (opens in new tab).
The emphasis on the Celestials was something also seen in the previously-released Eternals concept art (opens in new tab). Last August saw Marvel artist Rodney Fuentebella release an SDCC poster featuring a handful of Celestials. That, coupled with Eson overshadowing the concept art here, points towards the beings having a considerable role to play in The Eternals when it releases next February.
Here is the Marvel’s Eternals poster I did for the San Diego Comic-Con 2019. This was an exclusive poster given out on Sunday at the event. I cannot believe I was able to do this poster for @sdcc_2019 !! Thanks to @marvelstudios and @ryan_meinerding_art for letting me paint this poster. Be sure to check this movie when it comes out… we are working really hard on this one too! Enjoy! – @marvel #eternals #marvel #digitalart #digitalpainting #zbrush #photoshop #mcu #exclusive #painting #conceptart @rodneyimages Rodney Fuentebella (opens in new tab)

The Eternals also now has a synopsis (opens in new tab), hinting at what else is to come from arguably the MCU’s most ambitious and risky movie yet. “Marvel Studios’ The Eternals features an exciting new team of superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ancient aliens who have been living on Earth in secret for thousands of years,” begins the Eternals synopsis. “Following the events of Avengers: Endgame (opens in new tab), an unexpected tragedy forces them out of the shadows to reunite against mankind’s most ancient enemy, The Deviants.”
Concept art? Check. Plot synopsis? Check. Let’s hope a trailer follows in a few months. After all, The Eternals promises to be out of this world.
