Kevin Fiege unveils plans about introducing The Eternals in Phase IV of the MCU3 min read
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is the brainchild of Kevin Fiege. He has helped Marvel become the giant banyan tree it is today from a tiny sapling it was ten years ago. He has created a cinematic world comprised of different franchises , with each movie carrying a different tone and has made them all assemble and culminate in the form of Avengers : Infinity War and its untitled sequel. But what is next?
Well Mr. Fiege had something to say about that when he gave an interview to the Wrap. “‘Eternals’ is one of many many many things that we are actively beginning to have creative discussions about to see if we believe in them enough to put them on a slate,” He went on to add that the studio has “started working on what are the films post-Phase 3.”
The studio is working on Ant-Man and the Wasp, Captain Marvel, Avengers 4, and the Spider-Man : Homecoming sequel and promoting Infinity War. Marvel boss went on add that “Those are the five things that are taking up 90 percent of our time, but there’s ten percent we’re starting to go, ‘What’s going to be best?’ And some of that is you can take cues from everything we’ve done in the 22 movies before those — which is sequels to existing characters, new interpretation of existing characters and trying whole new swings with stuff that most people never heard of. So there are writers coming in on lots of different projects and lots of different ideas. And you’ll only start to hear more and more of it.”
Now to give our readers a basic idea about the Eternals ; They were created by the legendary Jack Kirby. The following is a quoted text from Wikipedia which will give you a basic idea of what they are-
The Eternals are a fictional race of humanity appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. They are described as an offshoot of the evolutionary process that created sentient life on Earth. The original instigators of this process, the alien Celestials, intended the Eternals to be the defenders of Earth, which leads to the inevitability of war against their destructive counterparts, the Deviants.
