Black Widow is the next MCU installment. But the universe of Marvel movies is so progressive, they’re already working on the next movie. And while filming for Eternals is underway, we’ll probably hear casting news for the next movie here soon. Plot and character details are already being released for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. However, while Eternals is in its filming process, set photos allow us to speculate its plot. The newest photos offer a look at one of the film’s settings.
Marvel News tweeted some photos from their Canary Island set.
The location is said to be the Babylon set. Notice how the buildings look like they’re made from clay. And in another photo, there are half-painted sigils of winged creatures.
Babylon is a piece from the ancient part of Eternals’ history. The film will evidently take place over thousands of years. And it will feature characters from two different timelines. Richard Madden spoke with Entertainment Weekly about reuniting with Game of Thrones castmate, Kit Harrington.
“It’s been about 10 years since we’ve worked together, I think. So we’ve moved on a bit onto different things, so I’m really excited to get back on set.”
Madden will be playing Ikaris. It’s said that Ikaris will be the MCU’s first openly gay hero. And Harrington will be playing Dane Whitman, a.k.a. Black Knight. We’re not sure which timeline each will live in. But Black Knight should live in modern-day since he eventually joins the Avengers in the comics. Ikaris could be from the ancient timeline. But Madden did express reuniting with Harrington on set. So he could be from modern-day. Or, the two timelines will collide in the film.
Eternals is scheduled for theaters on November 6th, 2020. We’ll probably know more between now and then. Maybe we’ll even see the actors on the Babylon set. But of course, we’ll know for sure next November. If Screen Geek hears anything else about Eternals, and the rest of the MCU, we’ll let you know.
