On The Right now Present, Oswalt was capable of nerd out about Starfox (performed by Harry Types) when requested about his personal place within the Marvel Universe. He then casually dropped the information that there had been an announcement about an Eternals sequel and that Chloé Zhao was meant to direct. “Hopefully, tright here will likely be extra adventures for Starfox and Pip,” he says on the finish of the clip.
The factor is, there hasn’t been an announcement about an Eternals sequel, at the very least till Oswalt turned the primary particular person to say it. If the film have been in Marvel Studios’ rapid plans, then you definitely suppose it would have been introduced together with the Part 5 and Part 6 schedule revealed at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. After November’s Black Panther: Wakanda Perpetually, Part 5 kicks off with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (February 17, 2023), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (Might 5, 2023), The Marvels (July 28, 2023), Blade (November 3, 2023), Captain America: New World Order (Might 3, 2024), and Thunderbolts (July 26, 2024), after which Part 6 begins with Unbelievable 4 (November 8, 2024), adopted by Avengers: The Kang Dynasty (Might 2, 2025) and Avengers: Secret Wars (November 7, 2025). There might effectively be extra Marvel films coming in 2024 and 2025, nonetheless (certainly 4 a 12 months is the utmost), and maybe Eternals 2 is considered one of them.
Eternals was a bizarre film. It was too Marvel for Zhao’s followers and too Zhao for Marvel followers, and by no means fairly discovered its footing. I admired the scope of the film, and its ambitions, however felt prefer it was overladen with explanations, workarounds, and world-building that appeared to overwrite or undermine what I already knew concerning the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Perhaps the sequel received’t endure as badly from all of the shortcomings and pitstops that the primary Eternals movie was pressured to make over the course of introducing actually 10 new superheroes, plus two alien entities, into the Marvel Universe. Additionally, I wish to see extra of Gemma Chan and Harry Types as superheroes please, thanks.
