WARNING: This text incorporates spoilers for Eternals.
After Eternals, members of the MCU’s new alien race might pop up in a few of Marvel’s upcoming films and TV reveals. Identical to the MCU’s current heroes, they aren’t restricted to their very own film franchise. There’s no actual purpose why audiences have to attend till Marvel makes an Eternals sequel to see what occurs to characters like Thena (Angelina Jolie), Makkari (Lauren Ridloff), and a few of the others.
Although Eternals was set as much as work as a standalone installment in MCU Part 4, it’s clear that the film wasn’t meant to be a one-and-done story for all of its characters. Much like most MCU initiatives, Eternals launched new characters to the MCU’s library for later film and TV initiatives to make the most of. The distinction between this one and former MCU entries is that Eternals added a considerably bigger variety of new heroes to the combination than standard.
As a result of deaths of Ikaris (Richard Madden), Gilgamesh (Don Lee), and Ajak (Salma Hayek), at the very least three Eternals could have been taken off the desk, however the different six (plus Harry Types’ Starfox) can all have futures within the MCU. Eternals’ movie ending definitively laid the groundwork for Eternals 2, however to date, there’s been no official phrase but on if it’ll occur or not. Regardless, the MCU has loads of alternatives to discover with the workforce. Right here’s each film and present the place a member of the group would possibly return (other than a possible Eternals 2).
Oscar Isaac’s MCU debut because the Crescent Crusader in Disney+’s Moon Knight present might be an opportunity to convey again one of many Eternals. An Eternals connection to Moon Knight might be related to the present, notably since Moon Knight’s story could have roots in historical historical past. Within the comics, Marc Spector is chosen by Khonsu (the Egyptian god of the moon) to be his champion. When explaining who Khonsu is within the MCU, Moon Knight could use one of the Eternals to supply viewers – and Mark Spector – with a much-needed historical past lesson. That might be acceptable, given that there’s a risk that an Everlasting met a earlier incarnation of Moon Knight. The Eternals having a Moon Knight hyperlink could have truly been hinted at within the film when an Egyptian image with deep ties to Moon Knight’s comedian lore was noticed on the Domo.
Thor: Love and Thunder
One of the vital fascinating references to an MCU superhero in Eternals got here when Kingo (Kumail Nanjiani) confirmed that he knew Thor (Chris Hemsworth) when the God of Thunder was only a little one. When considering their shared connection to Earth, the Asgardian gods having interactions with the Eternals at totally different factors in historical past is smart. And whereas Kingo is currently a captive of Arishem and will not be out there for a run-in with Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder, that is nonetheless an thought that will be value exploring extra deeply. Plus, Eternals having god-like reputations could make Thena, Starfox, Druig (Barry Keoghan), or Makkari targets of the film’s villain, Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale).
Black Panther: Wakanda Perpetually
Reportedly, Marvel Comics anti-hero Namor the Sub-Mariner would be the foremost villain of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. If that’s true, it means Marvel is about to introduce a complete new nook of the Marvel Universe into the MCU via the underwater kingdom of Atlantis. If Marvel dives into Atlantis and explores the way it sunk, any of the ten Earth-based Eternals might make a visitor look to assist inform its origin story. Within the comics, the Deviants and the Celestials have been each linked to this occasion, and both might be used to clarify Atlantis’ existence in the MCU. Along with that, there are theories that Tiamut materializing within the Indian Ocean could have an effect on Namor and Atlantis, thus setting the stage for Black Panther 2’s story.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
When it was confirmed that Will Poulter can be bringing Adam Warlock to life in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, many reached the belief that it was solely a matter of time earlier than his sidekick from Marvel Comics entered the image as nicely. And that’s precisely what occurred in Eternals’ post-credits scene. Starfox’s grand entrance was accompanied by the introduction of Pip the Troll, a personality who has performed a serious function in most of Adam Warlock’s Marvel Comics adventures. As of now, Pip the Troll is in the company of Starfox, Thena, Makkari, and Druig however Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 might relocate the character. Maybe on the finish of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 or after the credit, the MCU could lean into Adam Warlock’s subsequent story by having him meet up with Starfox, Pip, and probably the opposite Eternals on the Domo.
The Avengers 5
Through the years, three Eternals have joined the ranks of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, starting with Starfox within the mid-Nineteen Eighties, and adopted by Gilgamesh and Sersi a couple of years later. Gilgamesh had a really quick stint with the workforce, however each Starfox and Sersi had memorable tenures with the workforce. Gilamesh is lifeless within the MCU, however the different two would each be sturdy candidates for the group’s roster of heroes in Avengers 5. Sersi’s lingering ties to humanity and Starfox’s adventurous persona could lead on each into becoming a member of. Being an Avenger will not be of curiosity to a few of the different Eternals, however is perhaps an choice for a personality like Makkari. Any of those characters might be on the MCU Part 5 incarnation of the workforce when the Avengers reassemble. how Eternals ended, they might all be busy for the time being, however by the point Avengers 5 releases, their present predicaments might be resolved. They’ve all averted interfering in human affairs, however now that their relationship with the Celestials has modified, they’re free to do as they please and will determine to actively shield the world as Avengers.
A solo film or present for Kit Harington’s Black Knight hasn’t been confirmed, however feels seemingly at this level. Dane Whitman discovering the Ebony Blade in Eternals’ post-credits got here throughout as arrange for his personal story, somewhat than Eternals 2. As a film about super-powered aliens, Eternals couldn’t actually commit that a lot room to Dane Whitman’s ancestral heritage and ties to the Ebony Blade, and the identical would seemingly be true for any sequel that may comply with it. That’s why there’s a way that Marvel is constructing towards a Black Knight Disney+ present or a by-product film the place he can obtain an ample quantity of screentime. If that’s the case, Black Knight might be the brand new house of Sprite (Lia McHugh). Since she’s a human now, she might be a greater match for Black Knight than she can be for Eternals 2. Assuming Sprite doesn’t have her powers anymore, there’s not a lot she will do to assist them, however her information of historical historical past might be of nice use to Dane. They knew one another earlier than the film’s occasions, and will reconnect in Black Knight. Relying on what occurs with Sersi, she too might be part of his story.
