Marvel announced they will have two movies for 2020. They are  Black Widow on May 1, 2020 and Eternals on  November 6, 2020. This will be a weak year for Marvel. Black Widow is a B character and The Eternals is a title no one heard of. This blog will talk about The Eternals. Check out my earlier blog onBlack Widow

We now hear that Marvel will start production in September 2019 so we should be hearing about casting call in the summer.

In an interview with Collider, Kevin Feige says

““Everything after Endgame, and after Spider-Man: Far From Home, will be different and be unique, as we try to make every film. But seeing returning characters is certainly something we’re gonna do and want to do. But also introducing characters that the majority of the world has never heard of, much like Guardians, much like Avengers before we made Avengers. And there are lots of them. Eternals are one group, but we like the idea of introducing an ensemble, doing an ensemble movie from the start, as opposed to building up as we did with the first Avengers. More like Guardians, not tonally, but in terms of introducing a new group of people. You were asking about ’60s, and ’70s before. Jack Kirby did an immense, amazing epic with Eternals that spans tens of thousands of years, and that’s also something we haven’t really done, which is why that among many other things post-Endgame, we find appealing.”

 

The Eternals was first appeared in The Eternals (July 1976) published by Marvel Comics  was created by Jack Kirby. Jack had created the New Gods in DC. However, due to low sales, he wasn’t able to finish his story. He moved on to Marvel, created a similar story called the Eternals. Same thing happened here, the series was cancelled because of low sales.

The Eternals are the defenders of the Earth fighting against the Deviants.

In April 2018, Kevin Feige announced The Eternals movie with Sersi as the main character. In May Marvel hired two writers, Matthew and Ryan Firpo. In late September, they got Chloe Zhao to direct the movie. She was actually one of the finalists to direct Black Widow movie.
