Marvel Studios Comic Con Summary
What a day at San Diego Comic Con! In particular, the Marvel Studios Hall H panel has concluded, but not before providing some huge news for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It's late, but we wanted to summarize the MCU news from the panel.

2. The Eternals is confirmed to premiere in November of 2020. Richard Madden is Ikaris and Angelina Jolie is Thena, which makes much more sense age-wise than Sersi.
