He said of the context, "It takes place in our universe – it takes place in the MCU."
Chloe Zhao, who will be directing Eternals, stated at SDCC: "I just really, really wanted to make a Marvel movie for so long… For this film, The Eternals, it's about this incredible group of immortals but, through their journey, we get to explore what it means to be human."
Red Notice- 12th Nov
Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne Johnson, and Gal Gadot collaborate for a crime thriller on Netflix that's sure to be one of the streamer's biggest hits to date.

The Power of the Dog – 17th Nov

Ghostbusters: Afterlife – 19th Nov

It signifies the new movie will pick up decades after New York was terrorized by rebels from the spirit world, intending the unfairly maligned 2016 movie now sits alone in its parallel timeline.
With Fargo's Carrie Coon, Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard, McKenna Grace (the young Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel) and Ant-Man himself, Paul Rudd, at the helm of the cast, it assures to have a very different experience to the "four guys team-up to fight ghosts" vibe of the original movies.
