As fans get ready for the final two film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 3, Captain Marvel and the still untitled Avengers 4 respectively, they are also preparing for the future of the MCU. While we don’t have a full idea of all the future films, we are aware of a few, such as Spider-Man: Far From Home, a solo Black Widow film, and sequels to both Doctor Strange and Black Panther, there are several films on Disney and Marvel Studios’ docket they haven’t been confirmed as of yet. But, there is one other film that we do know about and its one that is obscure to most casual fans in Eternals.
Now, a rumored synopsis has supposedly leaked online, first covered by The Hashtag Show.
“The story of ‘The Eternals’ is set millions of years ago when the cosmic beings known as the Celestials genetically experimented on humans, creating the super-powered individuals as well as more villainous off-shoots known as Deviants. The two groups went on to battle each other throughout history to see which would eventually become the ultimate race. The story involves the love story between Ikaris, a man fueled by cosmic energy, and Sersi, who relishes moving amongst humans.”
Now, you have to take this RUMORED synopsis with a mountain size grain of salt. While it seems to be following the Jack Kirby origins, it’s almost following it too closely. Also, there’s the timing issue. You see, for those of us that are history and archeology buffs, no humans existed millions of years ago. Humans, i.e. Homo Sapiens, came about in history roughly 200,000 years ago. That is nowhere near one million, much less “millions”. So that is a pretty big loophole in the synopsis.
While The Hashtag Show has been fairly decent on getting inside knowledge, they don’t always hit home-runs. This may be one of their swings and misses. However, we probably won’t know anything for quite some time, as Marvel plays their cards close to the chest, and with this film set for November of 2020, and production not even close to beginning yet, we most likely won’t get a definitive answer on this for quite some time.
