Marvel fans assemble, the next entry of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Eternals. After premiering exclusively in movie theaters in November 2021, the superhero movie can now be watched in a litany of ways.

Phase Four of the MCU is firmly underway following the release of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and the Eternals, both of which introduced new heroes. In the cast of Eternals, it follows a group of immortal beings that for centuries have been tasked with protecting humanity from a threat called the Deviants.

Who are the Eternals though? The ensemble cast for the movie includes Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kit Harrington, Salma Hayek, Kumail Nanjiani, Brian Tyree Henry, Lauren Ridloff, Barry Keoghan, Lia McHugh and Don Lee. Eternals is directed by Oscar-winner Chloé Zhao, coming off her Best Picture and Best Director-winning film Nomadland.

If you’re amped to see the next chapter of the MCU, here’s how you can watch Eternals right now.

Is 'Eternals' streaming?

Eternals has officially made its long awaited streaming debut, as the Marvel movie arrived on Disney Plus for all subscribers on Jan. 12.

Disney Plus is the place for streaming just about all Marvel content , not just with the more than 20 movies from the MCU but also original series like WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki, as well as upcoming series like Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk and more.

One extra bonus with Eternals now that it is on Disney Plus - the movie is available to watch in IMAX Enhanced, a feature that Disney Plus says presents as much as 26% more of the original image.

How to watch ‘Eternals’

You don't have to be a subscriber to Disney Plus to be able to watch Eternals, however. There are alternatives to catchup with the latest Marvel movie both at home and even still at the movie theaters.

That's right, Eternals is still playing in select theaters. It certainly doesn't have as wide a release as it did on its initial release, so you may have to search a bit among your local theaters to find out where and when it is playing.

If you still prefer to try and watch Eternals from home, the movie is available to purchase digitally on platforms like Google Play and Prime Video for $19.99. It will be available to rent on all digital platforms starting Feb. 15.

'Eternals' on Blu-ray/DVD

Still a fan of physical media? Eternals will be releasing a 4K/Blu-ray/DVD on Feb. 15 for you to add to your personal collection. These DVD offerings will include plenty of bonus features to go along with the movie. Here's a sampling of what to expect:
