But, it’s safe to say that not many fans thought that there could be a prequel, which is something that writers Ryan Firpo and Kaz Firpo would like to do next for Marvel, according to The Hollywood Reporter:
“Go back and do a Kingo episode in 1890s Mumbai where he is juggling his life as a movie star, dealing with Gandhi’s peaceful dissolution of the British empire in India. And there’s an episode with Thena where she’s in Greece. I would love to make that show. There are a lot of opportunities. If the audiences allow us, there’s going to be a story to tell with Dane Whitman. There’s going to be a story to tell in the Cosmos with the Eternals confronting Arishem and all the Celestials who are these incredible metaphors for creation. I think there’s a lot of stories in the Eternals universe.”Kaz Firpo for The Hollywood Reporter
Well, there’s a lot of stories in the Eternals universe, that’s for sure. The movie even consisted of two storylines, one set thousands of years in the past, and one set in a post-Endgame timeline. There were a lot of things in the movie, even with its runtime of 2 hours and 37 minutes.
Eternals kicked off with 10 main characters. By the end of the movie, three of them died, three of them were taken by Arishem the Judge, three of them are on their ship Domo, and one left the group in pursuit of a normal life. The post-credit scene also teased the introduction of Black Knight in the future, and it also confirmed that Eternals will return.
Marvel never had so many projects in development, and that’s only if we count those that were officially announced. When we look at everything that is rumored to be in development, the possibilities of everything that we could see in the future of MCU are endless.
