While MCU fans patiently wait for a full trailer, they can still watch The Eternals teaser trailer. The true standout scene from the trailer was seeing the cast in full Eternals garb. From the suits to the landscape, it set the tone for the upcoming film. But behind the scenes, the moment wasn’t as effortless. According to Eternals director Chloé Zhao, seeing the cast in full suits was almost ruined by some high-velocity winds.
From the first trailer, seeing the Eternals in their full suits was a moment. Of course, viewers need to thank Chloé Zhao for the epic moment. A self-professed Eternals fan, Zhao wanted to recreate a classic Marvel cover featuring the mythical guardians. The epic shot built in her mind almost went awry for her and the cast. The Nomadland director said about the pivotal moment almost being falling apart:
Knowing the elements were against Zhao and the cast that day made the trailer even more epic. The windy day made the Eternals’ assemblage in the teaser more dramatic and otherworldly. If Chloé Zhao hadn’t talked about the weather conditions, you would’ve thought special effects or a powerful fan created the scene. But as the Oscar winner pointed out, the whole affair ended up awesome. The scene didn’t just speak to the director.
Despite the windy atmosphere, the moment turned out excellently not only for Chloé Zhao but for the cast as well. Trying on the Eternal costume left an impression on Druig himself Barry Keoghan. The Green Knight star told Entertainment Weekly about the cast standing together for the first time:
The whole change in one’s persona is understandable given the nature of Marvel’s legacy and mythology. Having Barry Keoghan recall all the cast members’ reactions lifted the MCU’s secret veil. His recollection seemed to come from a Marvel fan getting to live out their fanboy dreams.
Knowing more about that standout moment only built up the film’s hype. At least, Chloé Zhao finally saw her vision come to life. Marvel fans will have to wait until Marvel’s Eternals arrives in theaters on Nov. 5 to see all the cast suited up on the big screen.
