Will There Be an Eternals 2?
Eternals is an American superhero film based on Marvel Comics going by the same name. The film is part of the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and was released on 5 November 2021. Eternals is a brand-new franchise of the MCU and the responsibility of the direction of its first film was given to the Academy award-winning director Chloe Zhao.
The movie introduced several new characters at once with each having a special superpower. Eternals are known to be immortal and are sent to Earth to protect the planet from Deviants. After hiding themselves for centuries without interfering with the mechanisms of life on Earth, Eternals are forced to come out and fight when the Deviants pose a threat to mankind.
Eternals was a great success. With a fresh story and interesting characters, the movie was able to win the appreciation of many. This brings us to the question of Eternals returning on the big screen. As of now, Marvel Studios has not given any information regarding the sequel to Eternals.
However, at the end of the movie, it was informed that the Eternals will return. So, there is a high probability of Eternals 2 releasing soon. Or the Eternals may not have a movie of their own and could just feature in another movie. Either way, it is confirmed that we will get to see the Eternals again.
When Will Eternals 2 be Released?
Eternals 2 is not under production yet so we do not know when it will be released if it does. But if we are to take a guess, it will take one to two more years for Marvel to release a sequel to Eternals. We can expect the movie to release in 2023 if Marvel decides to make Eternals 2.
The cast of Eternals 2
The cast of Eternals 2 will mostly be the same as the cast of the first movie with some additions. It is also unlikely that we will see Richard Madden as Ikarus again since his character flew straight towards the Sun. Salma Hayek’s character Ajak also died in the movie leading Sersi to take the charge.
The other cast members of Eternals who will return are Angelina Jolie as Thena, Gemma Chan as Sersi, Kit Harrington as Dane Whitman or Black Knight, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Ma Dong-Seok as Gilgamesh, Barry Keoghan as Druig, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Harry Styles as Eros or Starfox, and Harish Patel as Karun.
What Will Happen in Eternals 2?
MCU’s Eternals ended with a cliffhanger when Arishem takes Sersi, Phastos, and Kingo with him into space. Eternals 2 should start by resolving this issue. Arishem had said that after the Eternals betrayed their own, he will have to check their memories to see if humans deserve living.
The judgment will be crucial because if things don’t go well, the Eternals will have to fight Arishem to save humanity. We will also see more of Eros, continuing from the post-credit scene when he met Thena, Makkari, and Druig.
