From the IMDB listing, it states that he will be playing Dan Whitman. An important character for the Marvel Universe as he goes to a transition of becoming the Black Knight. This role could only extend to this film or its Marvel trying to get another superhero off into its film roster or Disney+ TV series.
Lots of footages goes back and forth between the celestials teaching humans about civilization, creating the first major city in Egypt to enjoying life on Earth. While it also shows the celestials living around different timelines in different countries before modern day. The opposing forces haven’t been fully revealed but it goes to show that maybe they’re the reason why the Eternals came back, even after Endgame’s event.
If you’re familiar with the Eternals comic series, then it’s obvious that their enemies will be their chaotic counterparts, called The Deviants. The storyline could mostly follow the graphic novel series that Neil Gaiman wrote and John Romita sr illustrated. As quickly noted from the restocking of their earlier runs last year.
