Highly anticipated Marvel Studios movie is closing in. With only one month to go before it hits theaters, fans are for a new ride Disney and Marvel prepared for them.

Today, Disney issued a new press release, stating that the movie will take place across two time periods, which basically splits the movie into two separate storylines, which could mean that Eternals’ magnitude is actually giving us two movies for the price of one.

The story takes place across two time periods. One storyline is set in the past when they operated as a formidable team and a close family unit. The second storyline is in the present, when the group has fractured and split apart, content to live among humans, hiding in plain sight. The prevailing threat of the Deviants, which once again threatens the existence of mankind, means the Eternals need to put their differences aside and regroup.”

It was recently revealed that Eternals’ runtime will be 2 hours and 36 minutes, which makes it the second-longest MCU movie yet (only Avengers Endgame was longer with 3 hours and 1 minute). Runtime isn’t even so much of a surprise considering the movie has a huge number of characters, but we remember previous reports that the movie should explore both origins of main characters and how do they fit into post-Endgame MCU now.

Directed by Chloé Zhao, starring Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lia McHugh, Brian Tyree Henry, Lauren Ridloff, Barry Keoghan, Don Lee, Harish Patel, Kit Harington, Salma Hayek, and Angelina Jolie, Eternals will be released in theaters on November 5, 2021.
