Even the worst Marvel Studios film is better than a lot of other things hitting the theaters over the last decade. The only film not to get a sequel so far has been the Incredible Hulk and that’s more due to the distribution deal with Universal than anything to do with the character. So it should come as no surprise to anyone that Marvel is already in development on Eternals 2, when the Eternals itself doesn’t open up until this November.
This news comes from film pundit John Campea who is said to have reached out to a contact in the know to ask why some talked about films weren’t mentioned in the Marvel Studios Celebrates the Movies video that was released on Monday. Campea’s source stated: “It’s basically the same reason Avengers 5 and Eternals 2 weren’t announced. They were only announcing those films up to 2023 that have verified release dates. There are over 20+ projects on the board.”
The accuracy of this statement remains to be seen, but it would be hard for any studio to not want to lock Chloe Zhao into a sequel as quickly as possible after her recent Academy Award win for Nomandland.
