RUMOR: ETERNALS 2 Has "Transformed" Into Another Project As Marvel Studios Continues Creative Overhaul

RUMOR: ETERNALS 2 Has "Transformed" Into Another Project As Marvel Studios Continues Creative Overhaul RUMOR: ETERNALS 2 Has "Transformed" Into Another Project As Marvel Studios Continues Creative Overhaul

Following reports that Marvel Studios might have pulled the plug on Eternals 2, a semi-reliable scooper claims that the sequel has instead "transformed" into another MCU project. Find more details here...

When Eternals was released in 2021, it became Marvel Studios' first "Rotten" movie and, partly due to it being released in the final months of the pandemic, the movie also struggled to make a significant impact at the box office. 

While there's no denying it was a little overstuffed (and that it boasted an abysmal villain in Kro), there was a lot about Eternals which did work. The movie arguably has something of an undeserved bad rap, particularly as it showed a different side of the MCU and set the stage for some exciting future stories. 

Unfortunately, three years later, Marvel Studios still hasn't announced plans to release a follow-up to that big cliffhanger. As a result, it's unclear when or where we'll learn what became of the Eternals taken from Earth by Arishem for judgment after their role in stopping Tiamut's emergence. 

We've recently heard that Disney is pushing Marvel Studios away from sequels to unsuccessful movies, taking fewer risks to focus on guaranteed hits. There's good and bad to that approach, and recent reports point to Eternals 2 being one of its victims. 

However, scooper @MyTimeToShineH is today claiming that while the sequel isn't necessarily happening in its original form, it's "transformed" into something else. 

We'd assume this means the heroes will either be joined by a much bigger character as lead - Thor or the Guardians of the Galaxy, for example - or that they'll become supporting characters in another movie. Either option would work, particularly if it means we get a resolution to their story. 

Shortly before last year's San Diego Comic-Con, several trademark filings by Marvel Studios leaked online (with most announced to be on the way during the event). Among them was Celestials: End of Time, suggesting it could be tied to the wider Multiverse Saga and time travel. 

The Celestial's remains are expected to factor into Captain America: Brave New World as the source of Adamantium in the MCU, though Kit Harington's Dane Whitman/Black Knight was reportedly dropped from Blade several drafts ago. We're assuming most, if not all, of Eternals' cast would return for this mystery project.

"He's excited. We're excited. We will see," Kevin Feige said a few months ago when he was asked what the plan is for Harry Styles' Starfox. "You introduce a lot of new characters in a lot of movies and a lot of tags. Where do the tag folk reappear? That's a good question."

Stay tuned for updates as we have them.

@DrReedRichards - Marvel recently trademarked the name 'Celestials: The End of Time', so you could be right. Hope so.

The movie sucked. It's best they just reboot it and make it more akin to the comics. Or re-introduce them down the road in the form of a cosmic superhero movie or Inhumans movie. The problem with this movie is it had DEI running amok all over it and trying to do too much.
ObserverIO - 3/16/2024, 10:05 AM
@WelcomeBackFrank - I think the problem was pacing.
ShimmyShimmyYA - 3/16/2024, 10:57 AM
@WelcomeBackFrank - Frank castle fan but a racist

very ironic very unsurprising
Origame - 3/16/2024, 12:00 PM
@ShimmyShimmyYA - let me ask you, why do you think opposing DEI is racist? I think SUPPORTING DEI is racist. But I can at least explain that. It's because you're specifically ignoring merit and instead giving jobs and money based on skin color.
HashTagSwagg - 3/16/2024, 12:07 PM
@WelcomeBackFrank - For me it was a 4 out of 10 and that's only because I liked Ikaris and druig, when compared with the comics though, they're on the same levels as that Inhumans TV show where everything looks so muted, the colours and characters just feel so dull. Bland is probably the most accurate word I can use to describe it.
bobevanz - 3/16/2024, 12:08 PM
@WelcomeBackFrank - you can always spot a clown when they mention dei, also Frank wouldn't like you in real life.. In fact you'd probably be on his list for being a bigot lol
marvel72 - 3/16/2024, 12:20 PM
@bobevanz - So word can we use can't say woke can't DEI, what word can we use?
ShimmyShimmyYA - 3/16/2024, 12:45 PM
@Origame - the fact that you think that’s how DEI works is funny and proves you all just use it as dog whistle for *not white*

Cause you know what’s funny ? You know who actually benefits from diversity programs and (formerly) affirmative action ? White women
ShimmyShimmyYA - 3/16/2024, 12:47 PM
@Origame - and opposing it can literally only stem from the belief that you think other races aren’t good to have the merit to get to where they are

Do you think they just hire commercial pilots based on race or hours flown?

You think doctors are just plucked out the [frick]ing sky?

Or let me guess you think the nepo baby on a legacy admission at a university actually busted his ass to get the top coveted internship at a firm his dad or his dad’s friends are execs at? [frick]ing moron
elcapitan - 3/16/2024, 12:51 PM
@WelcomeBackFrank - do you’re saying the problem with Eternals was that it included people of color, a gay man and a deaf woman? Wow!
elcapitan - 3/16/2024, 12:53 PM
@Origame - right, so movies that don’t reflect the diversity of our world by including mostly white or all white casts has nothing to do with racism. You do realize that white people are the minority in the world, right?
Origame - 3/16/2024, 2:06 PM
@ShimmyShimmyYA - 1) yes, it does. You can't have dei in practice without abandoning merit because it's literally a diversity mandate. What if you don't meet the diversity quota when the only qualified candidates are white men/

2) and do you know who suffers most from affirmative action/


3) no, because people like will Smith, Jackie Chan, Charlize Theron, and Samuel l Jackson all made it and proven successful without dei. Supporting dei is saying these groups need the help and aren't as good as white men. Otherwise, it should be a matter of removing the barriers preventing them from being hired (and you better say what these factual barriers are).
Origame - 3/16/2024, 2:07 PM
@elcapitan - America is a majority white country. More at 11.
WelcomeBackFrank - 3/16/2024, 3:16 PM
@elcapitan - It didn't need to and if Disney and Marvel wanted those things they could've... oh I don't know... created original characters to represent those things.

The problem is with today's Marvel they look at a comic book cover, a panel or hell just a Wikipedia page and go, "Ok" and then they make their own thing--- bastardizing what was good about those characters, origins, stories, etc.

Namor, too, fell for the same fate.

In the early MCU days, they cared about honoring the comics. Then, 2010 hit and decided Heimdall needed to be Idris Elba when he should've been Blade and the rest was history. I'm not saying that sometimes race-changes aren't okay or can work on their own, but Marvel, much like many Leftists, seem to be obsessed with DEI and then--- much like you--- espouse the same defensive garbage and if anyone doesn't agree with the Party's views, they're automatically a racist, sexist, fascist, homophobe, etc. *Yawn*
ShimmyShimmyYA - 3/16/2024, 3:28 PM
@Origame - it’s literally not abandoning merit lol

It says to look at the merit of underrepresented people to see if they meet or exceed the standards for the position , they aren’t just grabbing anyone [frick]ing idiot. Do you know why Asians “suffer” ? Because of white legacy admissions not black or Spanish people so once again DEI / affirmative doesn’t even benefit us in the way you act like it does

Just spew bs all day everyday and then when people pack your ass up one time you [frick]ing cry and say it’s bullying
Origame - 3/16/2024, 3:50 PM
@ShimmyShimmyYA - 1) except that's literally what's happening. Alaqua cox was literally just an Amazon worker prior to being hired for both hawkeye then the echo show. Nia dacosta had barely anything under her name before being hired for a movie with a budget of $270 million. You can keep looking at the work of these people they're hiring. It's not great.

2) Asians had no problem getting into college prior to affirmative action. In fact in terms of college admissions and general yearly income Asians and Indians have been doing even better than white people, and this is in spite of legacy admissions and generational wealth. Yet with affirmative action, their requirements to even enter are higher. You don't know what you're talking about.

3) I'm only saying it's bullying when it's objectively bullying. And said people end up getting banned, so what does that tell you
ShimmyShimmyYA - 3/16/2024, 5:15 PM
@Origame - 1) wow they picked a native actress to play a native character, do you think actors just pop out of thin air ? Gerard butler was a lawyer before he started acting does that mean anything ? No

Nia was a up and coming director who had been a highlight at festivals prior to The Marvels. wtf were the Russo’s besides tv directors ? Who was Alan Taylor besides a HBO director ? James Gunn was never a blockbuster guy prior to GoTG, neither was Jon Favreau. But all of sudden that’s a problem when the black woman gets a shot? [frick] off

2) that’s literally a lie and there’s a billion articles on Google covering that very subject . As a matter of fact Asians were more accepted when there was a quota system in the 70s that got struck down by who? White poeple

3) bullying cause you do some racist dog whistling and can’t stand on shit you said. You just expect people to not be dumb enough to fact check you for your fake ass intellectual run arounds that ultimately amount to - YOU HAVE AN ISSUE WITH SOMETHING THAT ISNT WHITE BECAUSE ITS NOT WHITE.
Origame - 3/16/2024, 5:48 PM
@ShimmyShimmyYA - 1) so you're just gonna ignore the fact alaqua wasn't even an actor? This is what I'm talking about. There's literally no way they could hire someone unqualified that you wouldn't defend because she had literally nothing going for her in terms of being an actor. And if you say there were no other native actors to pick from, that's an insult to the actors that didn't need DEI to get anywhere

As for nia, up and coming literally means little experience. And the russo's had more experience directing with those shows yet were give a less risky, lower budget movie to start.

2) it's not the 70s my dude. That was 50 years ago. We've long since changed. And I gave no lies.

3) dude, I've praised blade and black panther. Stfu about this bs about me being racist. You don't know what that term means.

You're promoting an ideology that is judging based on race. In order to match dei requirements, disney is literally giving their company inclusion mandates on all levels. Something that's objectively racist and they're being sued for for discriminatory hiring practices. Don't believe me? This is from disney themselves.
Origame - 3/16/2024, 8:44 PM
@HashTagSwagg - can you believe these people? They're so into this woke ideology they don't even realize how well minority groups like Asians are doing 🤣
AvalonX - 3/16/2024, 9:42 PM
@Origame - Ironically enough, picking Cox just because she was native american seems kind of racist. Sterotyping at minimum. These people are lost.

Iman Villani sent in a tape and got cast. No acting history.

I dont know, did they just want a pakistani girl with brown skin. Kind of sounds racist to me. They called her on Zoom and told her she got the part lol.
Origame - 3/16/2024, 9:53 PM
@AvalonX - at least with Imani I can get her talent from seeing it on screen. But there's nothing with alaqua. It's an unknown character played by an unknown actor who can't act.

Both of these actors have no business continuing to be part of the mcu, because so far no one has cared about their work. But apparently pointing out this reality makes people like us racist 🙄

And of course the ShimmyShimmyYA guy is fast to respond until I provide links to back up what I'm saying 🤣
elcapitan - 3/18/2024, 12:53 PM
@Origame - And America is part of Earth which is minority white. More at 6.
elcapitan - 3/18/2024, 12:54 PM
@Origame - But pardon me, I should know better. The Eternals are all American, right?
elcapitan - 3/18/2024, 1:20 PM
@WelcomeBackFrank - I think it's a huge stretch and disingenuous to say that Marvel is not honoring the comics because their Wolverine is taller than he is in the comics, or Namor is from an ancient native central american tribe instead of Atlantis, or that Phastos is Black and gay. They are simply trying to reflect the cultural reality of the world we live in. Eternals operate globally, not just in America. Why are people here so fixated on movies only reflecting America (and they normally don't even do that). I don't represent a party or any group of people. But I find it pretty funny when people like you whine and complain about the inclusion of black, gay, indigenous, latino and trans people in your blessed comic book movies.
elcapitan - 3/18/2024, 1:24 PM
@Origame - your logic is so laughable. Do you think all actors are trained at conservatories or Stanislavski trained? No, many actors come from nowhere and are discovered. Just because you hate Alaqua Cox, that doesn't lend weight to your argument.
elcapitan - 3/18/2024, 1:27 PM
@AvalonX - another dumbass with a dumbass perspective. Iman Vellani did send in a tape, just like thousands of others probably did. Just like it happens on thousands of productions. They brought her in for screentests, just like they probably did for some others. And ultimately chose her. Did her Pakistani heritage come in to play? Probably. Would you have been happier if they hired a white girl? Who's the racist here?

How is it racist to hire a Native American to play a Native American part? .
elcapitan - 3/18/2024, 1:30 PM
@Origame - You're not racist because you point out that no one cares about their work (which is an opinion not a fact). You're a racist because you single them out for their race. Because you would deny them an opportunity due to your standards, when it's not even up to you. Would you rather have seen Emma Stone as Echo and Anya Taylor-Joy as Kamala Khan? Would that make you happy?
AvalonX - 3/18/2024, 2:02 PM
@elcapitan - She was unqualified. She literally can't act. Its not racist to hire a native american. Its DEI nonsense to prioritise a project for checkmarks that no one wanted. (That why it failed)

Also, if you watched it, they changed her entire backstory to highlight an accurate telling of native american. Then they made up some girl power space native americans which was entirely fiction. They even changed Echo's tribe. That to me is pandering and thats the point I was trying to make.

and you are guessing they brought her in for screentests, she is on record saying how she was casted, I didnt make it up. Once again you guys are quick to respond but you dont read. She had ZERO acting experince. Every project they put her in has failed. Is that her fault? No, its the studio's fault for making projects around characters dont care about a priority.

Origame - 3/18/2024, 2:08 PM
@elcapitan - and worldwide doesn't give a f@#$ about DEI. In fact, I'm pretty sure they care more that characters like kingo was race swapped, because he was Japanese originally.

Not to mention disney knows this, hence why they kept hiding black Ariel from Chinese posters.
Origame - 3/18/2024, 2:10 PM
@elcapitan - 1) never said there was anything wrong with his height.

2) namor is literally Roman backwards.

3) well good for them. Make their own black gay characters. Why race swap others?
Origame - 3/18/2024, 2:11 PM
@elcapitan - yes, because it's really that much of a stretch to expect SOME experience 🙄
Origame - 3/18/2024, 2:13 PM
@elcapitan - because race is literally the only reason they were hired. It's why I hate DEI. Stop hiring based on race and I won't call your ideology racist.
WelcomeBackFrank - 3/18/2024, 9:37 PM
@elcapitan - Dude, Namor didn’t need his origin or his people changed to reflect our world we live in. Phastos didn’t need to be a gay black man. Some of the other Eternals didn’t need to be turned into chicks just so it wouldn’t be a mostly guy team. These things were done to appeal to the dumb, whom you’re proving me right, believe this shit is important and crucial. No, telling a good story is important and crucial. Honoring and respecting these stories and heroes is important and crucial. Casting directors used to care about finding people who embody the look and personality of the characters. Now, you get things like “Borderlands” where you go from a sexy redhead to Activia Jamie Lee Curtis. Tell me… what did changing Namor to be South-American add or make better than him being an Atlantean? What did changing Phastos being a gay, fat black guy do to better that character? What did changing Valkyrie from a blonde maiden to Tessa Thompson? Zendaya to MJ? I’ll wait.
elcapitan - 3/19/2024, 9:12 AM
@AvalonX - do you work for Disney Plus? What makes you think Echo or Hawkeye failed? You are clearly biased and can’t tolerate a retelling of a story. You have to find things to pick apart. I thought her performance wasn’t that bad in Echo. Will she win an award, probably not. But do you watch comic book movies for Oscar-worthy performances? What does her lack of experience have anything to do with it. You can judge her on her acting ability but plenty of fine actors were pulled off the street.
elcapitan - 3/19/2024, 9:14 AM
@Origame - you literally sound like a fourth grader. But go on, make your childish arguments.
Origame - 3/19/2024, 10:08 AM
@elcapitan - aaaand right on cue with the ad hominem.
AvalonX - 3/19/2024, 1:49 PM
@elcapitan - OMG.


Echo was not a retelling. They changed everything about her and called her echo. She doesnt even have her power. They even changed her tribe. I KNOW echo failed.

What does her lack of experience ACTING have to do with it? Are you new to earth?
