Chloe Zhao’s Eternals was one of Marvel Studios’ longest movies of all time, just behind Avengers: Endgame. Ironically, it was also one of their worst-received titles! The movie focused on a group of sentient beings created and deployed by the Celestials to eradicate the deviants.
The lineup as seen in the 2021 movie consisted of Thena, Gilgamesh, Makkari, Druig, Phastos, Ikaris, Sersi, Sprite, Kingo, and Ajak. Toward the end of the film, only 7 of the 10 Eternals survived the events of the emergence, except Ajak, Gilgamesh, and Ikaris.
Owing to the poor reception, fans were unsure about a sequel announcement, and as of now, we have no official confirmation about an Eternals sequel. Now, we have information from multiple sources that point to a sequel being in development.
