Some brief footage in this Marvel sizzle reel.

Praying this shit is good. I have faith in Chloe. Especially with this stacked cast.

..He might not be the first, but certainly one of the most notable indie film makers to be handed the reigns to a blockbuster film and succeed.

He'd already transitioned into big studio films before Iron Man.

Marvel started with established studio directors (Favreau, Branagh, Johnston), then started using folks better known for TV (Whedon, Alan Taylor, the Russos). Guys like Shane Black and James Gunn started the transition to "indie", because while they'd written screenplays for the studio system and directed minor works, they'd never done anything of that scale before.

I think Jon Watts for Spiderman: Homecoming was the first *real* indie pick from Marvel. He'd never done anything for the studio system at all, and then got handed the Spider-Man franchise. Pretty amazing.

After that's when they transitioned to Taika, Boden/Fleck, now Zhao, Shortland, etc.

There are a few examples of Marvel-to-indie directors before the MCU, but that's not much of a surprise, because it was spread around a variety of studios and no one really knew what they were doing. Sometimes it worked out (Blade II to Guillermo Del Toro), sometimes it didn't (Fantastic Four to Josh Trank).

But I think MCU's transition to indie voices is especially noteworthy because the machine is so large, and it's so easy for voices to be lost. Some of them have shone through (Taika, Black/Gunn if we want to argue for them), others have just gone along for the ride. It'll be interesting to see how this new batch does for Marvel.

...Elf greatly exceeded expectations. Zathura, not so much.

That trailer was nothing. As someone who isn't hella deep in the Marvel Universe the trailer itself did nada. Maybe it's a slow burn of a movie? The other trailers will reveal more. I will probably be checking it out.

and as a person that knows The Eternals comic history, I think they could be a hard sale for the casual MCU fan if not done right.

They're going to have to do more than a trailer showing they've been around forever and a quick line about Tony Stark and Steve Rogers.

All I remember from the other trailer was a bunch of people standing around on cliffs.

"The Emergence" (Whatever the fuck that is) Apparently The Eternals stand against that.

That gives us the broad strokes.
