How to watch Eternals – when can you stream the Marvel movie?

How to watch Marvel's Eternals

How can you watch Eternals? After a year of delays the cosmic Marvel Cinematic Universe movie is finally coming out, and needless to say, every marvel fan is anxious to see it. Helmed by Academy Award-winning Nomadland director Chloé Zhao, the science fiction movie is one of the studio’s most ambitious projects to date, telling the story of immortal superheroes defending the world from one of its biggest threats since Avengers: Endgame.

Boasting a star-studded cast including the likes of Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, Salma Hayek, and more, Eternals is a Marvel Phase 4 movie like no other. Ten immortals are tasked to protect Earth from monsters named Deviants that have been terrorising humans since the dawn of time. After a new evolved Deviant appears, and strange earthquakes start occurring around the globe the gang of heroes must work together once again. Joining forces after centuries of separation, the Eternals set out to stop “the emergence” – the greatest calamity that has faced the people of Earth since Thanos.

Thanks to some Covid-19 related issues, as mentioned previously, our wait for Eternals has been longer than expected. Many may be wondering about the details surrounding the release of this Marvel movie. Well, don’t worry because we’ve got you covered. Here we go over when and where you can enjoy Eternals, and list your viewing options, including details about streaming it on Disney Plus. So buckle in and prepare for some Celestial grade-level knowledge, here is how to watch Eternals.

How can I watch Eternals?

The good news is that Eternals had a full theatrical run. That’s right, the action movie arrived in US and UK cinemas on November 5, 2021 – bringing a long wait to an end. This release date came after a year of delays and rescheduling thanks to Covid-19.

Initially, Eternals was set for a November 6, 2020 release date. The movie was then shifted to open on February 12, 2021 before finally landing on the current release date November 5. All the muddled dates have been confusing, to say the least, and at one point it seemed like Eternals would forever be in post-production limbo.

Luckily the release date didn’t change. Reviews for Eternals happened as planned, and the franchise’s schedule held fast, and Eternals arrived on November 5 in cinemas as planned.

When can I stream Eternals on Disney Plus?

It’s been confirmed that Eternals is coming to Disney Plus on January 12, 2022. This is without Premier Access, meaning you can watch it as part of your normal subscription. Eternals had the same release pattern as Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings in September 2021, where it was available exclusively in cinemas for a 45-day window.

Shang-Chi, which was released in September 2021, hit the platform on November 12 as part of Disney Plus Day. It was thought that maybe Disney could decide to go back to its pre-pandemic scheduling, meaning that Eternals will only hit Disney Plus six to eight months after it leaves cinemas. Thankfully, Eternals followed a similar path to Shang-Chi, and the Celestials came to streaming sooner rather than later.
