According to an upcoming Marvel Studios leak, the most savage Marvel film is set to get another sequel.
Eternals The lowest-rated Marvel film by the critics and fans – but it is not listed in our Marvel films ordered guide – might receive a sequel as per the moderators of the Marvel Studios Spoilers Reddit page.
In a brand new released tales From the Mod Queue thread(opens in a new tab), Eternals 2 “is on track” at Marvel Studios, though there’s no information on how far in the production process it may be. It also implies that Chloe Zhao, who directed the first Eternals film, might not be returning for the sequel. If Zhao agrees to Eternals 2, she could be “heavily restricted” by Marvel’s brain trust, made up of people like Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and Louis D’Esposito, co-president of the company.
The post also is a source of unsubstantiated information that suggests production issues hindered the development of the film. Marvel employees are reported to be worried about the possibility of a similar situation that could occur once more if Eternals 2 is officially greenlit; however, it may be just speculation.

In reality, Marvel Studios Spoilers’ moderation team suggests that Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) enthusiasts must take every Eternals 2 information with a huge pinch of salt. However, the Reddit mods of the page state that the information comes from trustworthy and reliable sources. The readers can decide for themselves whether some (or the majority) of these are factual or false. We’ve reached out to Disney for an official response to the rumor and will revise this article when we hear back.
Eternals premiered in theatres in November 2021. It is now the lowest-rated MCU film to date. Currently, the Marvel Phase 4 project has a 47percent “rotten” rating on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes, putting it last on its own MCU film rankings. In addition, Eternals has an audience rating of 6.3 out of 10 on IMDb.com – only Ms. Marvel, the most recent Marvel Disney Plus show, has a lower IMDB score (6.2) over Eternals in the MCU’s diverse television and film options. This is excluding Sony’s Marvel productions, too, like Morbius as well as Venom.
When we reviewed the film, we stated that Eternals was a “better film than some critics have suggested” We also said it was a “worthy MCU entry that provides a thought-provoking meditation on what it means to be human, albeit one wrapped up in superhero clothing.” The majority of fans disagree with us. However, we think some of the other Marvel movies are less good within the MCU than Eternals. Check out our top Marvel films ranking article to discover the ones we gave fewer marks than Eternals.

Full spoilers are coming for Eternals. We’ve warned you.
We believe so. As we mentioned in our review, there are some major issues with Eternals, its narrative, which is omnipresent after the movie’s major surprise is revealed, and the jarring jump cuts, to mention two, that make for a jumbled and disjointed experience.
The criticisms are becoming more obvious with every passing MCU television and film and another project, not even mentioning possible developments surrounding the creation of the new Celestial Tiamut Tiamat, which is located in Earth’s center. The fact that deceased, marble-colored massive Tiamat can be seen through the Indian Ocean. The revelation that certain Eternals were abducted by another Celestial in Arishem and could have been seen by everyone on Earth because of his size. He then left with the abductees.
But, for a movie made based on some most difficult Marvel comics in the history of the universe, the film did as great as it could at bringing the Eternals complex comic story to cinephiles and MCU fans as well.
The short look at The Celestials’ MCU history teased more about the mysterious and cosmic beings, their role in creating the universe, and their dark strategy for creating it. The introduction of the first deaf and gay superheroes in the MCU significantly contributed to inclusion and diversity in the biggest film franchise. Zhao’s cinematography and sharp directorial eye made this among the top visually stunning Marvel films ever made. While the post-credits sequences were leaked with a sour taste before the film’s release, they were more entertaining than other similar end credits sequences that we’ve seen in the MCU.
There was a lot to love about Eternals. Based on the post-credits scene, Marvel isn’t done with the characters who played a part in the film – either as leads or minor roles in the film. It’s possible that the studio believes that it has a duty to the Eternals to create another sequel to show how important they are for the MCU. It could be a redemption tale suitable for Tony Stark/ Iron Man, The Winter Soldier, and Loki should it ever happen.
If one of the Eternals sequels is currently in pre-production, the movie could be announced on Marvel Studios’ San Diego Comic-Con panel on Saturday, July 23 at 10:30 am PT / 12:30 pm ET / 6:30 pm BST / 11:00 pm IST. We think it could make up one of the company’s Phase 5 plans instead of being a separate Phase 4 entry.
Many MCU films are scheduled to release before a possible Eternals 2. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is the next Marvel movie that will be released in theatres in November. In the meantime, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will be available at Disney Plus in August.
