The new Eternals trailer brings up the question why they didn’t help the Avengers fight Thanos. Salma’s Ajak, the spiritual leader of Eternals answers, “Five years ago, Thanos erased half of the population of the universe. But the people of this planet brought everyone back with the snap of a finger. The sudden return of the population provided the necessary energy for the emergence to begin.” Sersi (Gemma Chan) explains elsewhere in the trailer that Eternals came to Earth 7000 years ago and gets asked by the lone human Dane Whitman (Kit Harington) the big question, “Why didn't you guys help fight Thanos? Or any war? Or all the other terrible things throughout history?” Sersi says they were “instructed not to interfere in any human conflicts unless Deviants were involved.”

The trailer shows a variety of monsters and the fact that things are now changing so the Eternals will finally have to stand up and fight. Eternals is out in late October in Indian cinemas, and November 5 in the US.
