The Eternals is one of the most anticipated Marvel movies in recent times. While the movie boasts an impressive cast, including Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, and Richard Madden, many fans are wondering whether it is related to other Marvel movies. In this article, we’ll explore whether the Eternals is related to other Marvel movies.
What are the Eternals?
The Eternals are a group of immortal beings created by the Celestials, who are powerful cosmic entities in the Marvel Universe. The Eternals have been around for over 35,000 years and possess various superhuman abilities such as flight, super strength, and telepathy.
Is the Eternals Related to Other Marvel Movies?
The short answer is yes. The Eternals exist within the same universe as other Marvel movies. However, unlike other Marvel movies that have a clear link or crossover with each other, the Eternals seems to be standalone.
No Direct Connections
There are no direct connections to any previous MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) films or characters in the trailers or teasers released so far. There is no mention of any Avengers or any of their battles or events that occurred in previous movies.
Despite there being no direct connections with previous MCU films, there are some indirect connections that suggest that it exists within the same universe. For instance, in one of the trailers released for The Eternals, we see a shot of a celestial creating a planet – this could be an indirect reference to Knowhere from Guardians of Galaxy Vol 1 and 2.
The Celestials were also mentioned briefly in Guardians of Galaxy Vol 1 and again in Avengers: Infinity War when Star-Lord mentions his father’s origins as being from a “small planet” that was “devoured” by a Celestial.
The Future of the MCU
The Eternals is also expected to set up the future of the MCU. With so many new characters being introduced, it could potentially lay the groundwork for future movies and crossovers with other Marvel characters.
In conclusion, while The Eternals may not have any direct connections to previous Marvel movies, it still exists within the same universe and has some indirect references. With so many new characters being introduced, this movie is expected to set up the future of the MCU in a big way. Fans are eagerly waiting for its release to see how it will fit into the larger Marvel universe.
