Eternals is a 2021 American superhero film based on the same-named Marvel Comics race.
It is the 26th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (MCU).
Chloé Zhao directs the film, and she co-wrote the screenplay with Patrick Burleigh, Ryan Firpo, and Kaz Firpo.
Eternals 2 Release Date: When Can We Expect Eternals 2?
According to digitalspy, We don’t have a confirmed release date for Eternals 2 because Marvel hasn’t confirmed it yet, but we will have to wait until at least late 2024.
The MCU’s Phase 5 schedule is pretty full, but there may be room for the sequel in Phase 6, which we only know will begin with Fantastic Four and end with two Avengers films in 2025.
Eternals 2 Cast: Who Might Return for the Sequel?
If the sequel is confirmed, we can expect most of the cast to return, but the first film had its share of casualties.
Salma Hayek’s Ajak was killed by Deviants (with Ikaris’ assistance), and the lead Deviant Kro (voiced by Bill Skarsgard) killed Don Lee’s Gilgamesh.
Richard Madden’s Ikaris, after seeing the error of his ways, flew into the sun at the film’s climax (lol, yep), seemingly to his death. Despite their 7,000-year history, none of the deaths rule out flashbacks.
That concludes the deaths, but Sersi transformed Lia McHugh’s Sprite into a human, potentially ruling out a return. If Sprite does return, it’s possible that McHugh’s role will be recast.
Eternals 2 Plot: What Will Eternals 2 Be About?
While the first film was heavily influenced by Jack Kirby’s comics, it largely told its own story, making it difficult to predict what will happen in the sequel.
Fortunately, we can just concentrate on the first film’s cliffhanger ending.
After defying their leader (and creator) Arishem and preventing Tiamut from destroying Earth, the Eternals split up and assume the war is over.
They are mistaken, however, as Arishem abducts Sersi, Kingo, and Phaistos from Earth.
Arnhem informs them that he intends to examine their memories to determine whether humanity is worthy of survival, similar to how he appears in the comics as a Celestial who determines whether any planet’s civilization deserves to live or die.
Marvel Actor Reveals Sequel Announcement for Eternals 2
To say that Eternals was eagerly awaited before its release would be an understatement. This MCU epic featured a star-studded cast and an Oscar-winning director behind the camera. So it was perplexing when the film received mixed reviews.
When Eternals was released, it was quickly dismissed as a minor disappointment for the MCU. The film’s villains were a little underwhelming, and the film’s history-spanning narrative did not quite hit the mark as some expected.
Many people questioned the possibility of an Eternals 2 sequel. Even though the film’s final moments introduced some intriguing new characters (Harry Styles’ Starfox and Patton Oswalt’s Pip the Troll), it has become less likely that an Eternals sequel will be made. That is, until now!
Is There Any Eternals 2 Footage Yet?
As previously stated, Eternals 2 has yet to be confirmed, let alone begin filming, so you’ll have to wait a while.
For the time being, you can get your fix by rewatching Eternals on Disney+.
