Marvel movie Eternals is reportedly getting a sequel
A new Marvel Studios leak claims that the Marvel movie with the poorest reviews will get a sequel. According to the moderators on the Marvel Studios Spoilers Reddit thread, Eternals, the least popular Marvel film among fans and reviewers, may see a sequel. Eternals 2 “is on track” at Marvel Studios, as hinted in a recent Tales From the Mod Queue thread (opens in a new tab), though there’s no word on how far along the development line it might be.
The leak also raises the possibility that Chloé Zhao, who helmed the first Eternals film, won’t be back for the follow-up. Zhao might be “heavily constrained” if she agrees to work on Eternals 2, according to the Marvel brain trust, which is made up of co-president of Marvel Studios Louis D’Esposito and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. Unverified information in the post suggests that the development of the superhero movie was slowed by production problems. If Eternals 2 is approved, it has been reported that Marvel staff are worried about a repeat of the same situation. However, this could just be a rumor.
Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) fans are advised to treat all Eternals 2 material with a huge grain of salt, according to the moderation staff at Marvel Studios Spoilers. However, the moderators of the Reddit website also claim that these facts originate from dependable and trustworthy sources. In essence, readers are free to decide for themselves if any (or all) of this is accurate. We’ve contacted Disney for an official response to the claim, and if we hear back, we’ll update this post.
The MCU film Eternals, which debuted in theaters in November 2021, has since received the lowest ratings. The Marvel Phase 4 project is now rated 47 percent “rotten” (opens in new tab) on the review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, placing it at the bottom of Rotten Tomatoes’ own ranking list for MCU films. Only Ms. Marvel, the most recent Marvel Disney Plus show, has a worse audience rating on IMDb.com (opens in a new tab) than Eternals (6.3 out of 10), which is true of all the MCU’s film and television offerings. That also ignores Venom and Morbius, two Marvel films produced by Sony.
