Marvel Studios has released two films this year with Black Widow and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Next up on the list is Eternals, which features ancient and powerful beings saving our world from the threat of the Deviants. It’s a stacked cast including Richard Madden (HBO’s Game of Thrones), Gemma Chan (Captain Marvel), Kit Harington (HBO’s Game of Thrones), Salma Hayek (From Dusk Til Dawn), and Angelina Jolie (Tomb Raider). Today, Lexus and Marvel Studios have teamed up to release a new ad for the first-ever IS 500, which brings back the Russo brothers as directors for Marvel Studios.

Kumail Nanjiana stars as Kingo, one of the members of Eternals, and he stars in the Lexus cinematic long-form video titled “Parking Spot.” Fans can catch a brief glimpse of Madden as Ikaris and Lauren Ridloff as Makkari as they fly and run to save the city, respectively. They also get a look at Kingo and his relationship with the team, and how he’s having trouble finding parking for his new Lexus IS 500 F SPORT Performance. Named as the most powerful IS ever, it has a 472-horsepower naturally aspirated V8 engine.

Of course, with the destruction of the city happening, who better to helm the project than the Russo brothers, who have directed Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. The video blends action and humor as Kingo is trying to find a spot before he can join the team to help save the day. Helping with the visual effects is Framestore, a visual effects company.
