Warning! This post contains SPOILERS for Eternal.
Eternal Star Kit Harington recently told fans to get over Thanos and the Blip as the MCU continues to expand into Phase 4. Directed by Oscar winner Chloé Zhao, Eternal hit theaters on November 5. Alongside Harington, the film features an all-star cast including Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, and others. The film is the third cinematic installment in the MCU Phase 4 and comes on the heels of the previous 2021 releases. Black widow and Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings.
It’s no secret that Marvel is moving into new territory with its Phase 4 projects. The events of Avengers Endgame concluded many of the MCU’s long-term story arcs, but as fans have seen in recent releases like Loki, the multiverse has also created limitless potential for new characters and plots. According to Zhao herself, Eternal It was designed to feel like a separate standalone movie from the MCU’s most popular heroes. The absence of the Eternals in previous projects was briefly mentioned in the film, but it didn’t stop fans from wondering where the Eternals were during Thanos’ snap and why the nearly 7,000-year-old Eternals seemed disconnected from the existing universe.
According to Harington, the reasoning behind that is simple. Harington, who plays Dane Whitman in Eternal, recently said National mail that Marvel fans “should not get too bogged down“from previous events like Thanos and the Blip. He went on to explain how Eternal signals a new phase for the MCU, and that audiences, “I need to remember to maintain a suspended level of disbelief.” Harington’s full quote can be read below:
“I think the answer is quite satisfactory. This is me talking to Marvel fans, so shoot me. It shouldn’t get too bogged down. This is a new phase; this is a new group of people that is entering. If you get too much about the Blip or the events that happened in the above things, you can stumble everywhere. We must remember to maintain a level of suspended disbelief. “
It appears that Harington’s character will become increasingly important to the fate of the MCU, as his future as a Black Knight was teased in one of Eternal‘post-credits scenes. And with Harry Styles’ explosive introduction to Marvel as Eros / Starfox, it certainly seems like the MCU is trying to expand its focus far beyond Earth. Eternals 2 It has been hinted at as a possibility and the group of celestial beings will almost certainly lead any future Marvel team. But oddly, not even Harington himself knows what’s next for Dane. Although it is almost confirmed that he will appear in future MCU projects, it will be interesting to see exactly how and when his character evolves.
Although Eternal Representing a new era for the MCU, the franchise has still struggled to get through the events of Infinity Saga. Seeing as Thanos’ Snap was so integral to the climax of the first three phases of the MCU, it’s not surprising that Marvel had trouble getting over it and various movies have addressed its impact. Harington has a good point, though: As the MCU continues to progress through Phase 4, Blip and Thanos himself will become more obsolete as the franchise increasingly focuses on the future and its next Thanos-level threat. .
