The Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to expand moving into Phase 4 but will the Eternals be among the new additions to this world? According to a new report, they’re on the way to the big screen…
We’ve been hearing rumblings about the possibility of an Eternals movie for a while now but Bleeding Coolhas run a report claiming to have heard from “ultra-reliable” sources that a big screen adventure featuring the characters is indeed in the works. The heroes were created by Jack Kirby and with Thor: Ragnarok borrowing heavily from his work in terms of visuals, they’d fit in really well in the MCU.
An announcement is said to be imminent and Marvel Studios has been meeting with writers about the property recently so we could now hear something official about the film in a matter of weeks.
Eternals would also be a great way for Kevin Feige and company to outshine Warner Bros.’ plans for a New Gods movie and this lot would definitely fit in well afterGuardians of the Galaxy kicked open the door to a Marvel Cosmic Universe. This group of characters are an evolutionary offshoot of humanity living on Earth who possess greater powers and longer lifespans than the mainstream human race.
They’re not the most well-known group but neither were the Guardians before James Gunn brought them to the big screen so this project definitely has some potential…if it ultimately happens that is!
