Phase 4 of the MCU is about to kick off this year and one of the films to get the ball rolling is Marvel’s Eternals. The film is already deep in production and leaked photos have offered several different looks of the main characters of the film in costume already. And now, we get ourselves our first official look at Kit Harington‘s Dane Whitman as well as a brand new look at Gemma Chan‘s Sersi. Twitter user, James Rossiter, posted several photos and videos from the set of the Marvel flick at London which teases a stroll in the park for the two characters before they seemed to be under attack by an unknown threat. Similarly, BR Marvel News posted a different look at the set photos. You can check all of the tweets below.

The budding romance between the two characters is also confirmed to be teased as the photos offer a look at the two of them having a stroll in the park with all smiles. This is a reference to their known romance in the comics while they are members of the Avengers. The film could pretty much tease how the characters became romantically involved and it could expand to later films just like what they did with Wanda Maximoff and Vision.
The setting of the photos is pretty much hard to tell but the only thing confirmed right now is that part of the film will be set in the modern-day given that the film will span a thousand years of storytelling for the MCU. Aside from the manifestation of Sersi’s flight powers in the leaked set photos, the intriguing part here is the unknown threat that attacks the two characters. Given the latest rumors about the film, this could be the doings of the Deviants. The attack is presumably on Sersi given that Dane Whitman is not Black Knight yet and this could what make her aware of the looming threat of the Deviants in the film. This could also show how Dane Whitman is made aware of the existence of both the Eternals and Deviants. However, this is pure speculation at this point.
