The Eternals' place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is being confirmed by Nate Moore. Chloé Zhao's Eternals, which debuted in 2021, exposed viewers to a new cast of heroes as well as a more sombre tone and unusual aesthetics. However, the story and total length of the film received mixed reviews from critics. In order to defend the inhabitants of Earth from their counterparts, the Deviants, and a cosmic catastrophe known as the Emergence, the film's main cast of immortal beings—the Celestials' creation—reconvenes after a long absence. Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Brian Tyree Henry, Lauren Ridloff, Barry Keoghan, Kit Harington, Angelina Jolie, and Salma Hayek are among the several actors who appear in it.
Eternals received harsh criticism before it was released from some who seemed to be offended by Marvel Studios' increased diversity. Along with the COVID-19 pandemic's impacts, censorship from various nations as a result of the movie's representational problems caused its box office performance to suffer. The film's $400 million performance was nonetheless comparatively dismal compared to Spider-Man: No Way Home, which was released the following month, despite having one of the biggest opening weekends at the time. Many viewers viewed Eternals as one of Phase 4's stronger ventures, despite some critics who said it had too many characters to develop or did not link to the rest of the MCU. The exact date that the Eternals will appear again is still unknown, however the film's ending hinted at at least one sequel and introduced Harry Styles' Eros.
The future of the Eternals in the MCU has now been confirmed by Nate Moore in a conversation with Phase Zero. They will indeed return, says Marvel Studios' VP of Production and Development, who also produced the 2021 movie, in an interview that was uploaded to YouTube. Moore just responds, "I don't want to disclose anything, but we haven't seen the last of those characters," when asked if there would be an Eternals 2.
Where In The MCU The Eternals Might Reappear
One of the most preferred MCU films for the Eternals to reappear in is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which features a mid-credits scene. Pip the Troll, who has appeared in various Adam Warlock comic book storylines, is with Eros when he first shows up and offers to help them. Adam Warlock may be connected to Eros and the Eternals in another credits scene since it is already established that he will appear in the upcoming Guardians movie. The characters may appear in one of those as well given the upcoming Avengers films and their awareness that they may intervene in other conflicts to defend humanity.
The wonderful news that the Eternals will return in some manner may pave the way for future interesting collaborations. Eternals 2 might potentially enable the MCU to further develop this enormous cast of characters. There will likely be more information and potential Easter eggs down the road for those eager to see more of the Eternals and wondering when they could make a comeback.
