MARVEL’S Eternals trailer has been mocked by fans for a ‘laughable’ line about why the heroes have never appeared in the films before.
The first trailer for the highly anticipated film dropped on Monday, starring Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden and Salma Hayek.

The Eternals saga centres around a race of immortal beings who lived on Earth for thousands of years and shaped its history and civilisations.
At one point in the trailer, a narrator says: “We have watched and guided. We have helped them progress and seen them accomplish wonders.
“Throughout the years we have never interfered until now.”
However, Marvel fans immediately mocked the line and how odd that seemed considering Thanos destroyed half the universe in the Avengers movies.

Writing online, one Marvel fan said: “The Eternals waited until now to interfere in the affairs of mankind? Not gonna lie I have questions.”
Another referenced World War I and II as they wrote: “Just watched the Eternals trailer….so they’ve been around for 7,000 years and haven’t interfered until….now? were they busy between 1914 and 1945?”
A third shared: “My biggest gripe with how Marvel is setting up the Eternals is how they mentioned they ‘didn’t feel like they needed to step in’ until now.
“But they watched Thanos, a part Eternal madman, collect all the infinity stones and then wipe out half the universe.”

A fellow fan of Marvel tweeted: “haha youtubers trolling marvel with the “we have never interfered, until now” eternals trailer phrase, meaning whatever happens in the movie has to be bigger than wiping half the universe for them to interfere.”
Eternals is directed by Oscar-winner Chloe Zhao and follows the immortal alien race, who possess including super strength and the ability to fly.
Maleficent star Angelina looks unrecognisable with striking blonde hair, as she portrays Thena, a warrior who can create any weapon out of cosmic energy.
Bodyguard’s Richard plays Ikaris, the all-powerful leader of the Eternals who can shoot beams of cosmic energy from his eyes, fly and has super strength.
Eternals will be released in cinemas on November 5.
