According to The Sun, Eternals production halted after finding a bomb close to set in the Canary Islands.
Bomb disposal experts arrived on the scene to disarm the device following the evacuation.
They believe the device to be a remnant armament from an old Nazi Army camp on the Spanish island.
An insider speaking to the Sun said, “It was obviously terrifying – the bomb could have been there for decades untouched but who knows what might have happened if it was disturbed. Some of the biggest stars of the world were on set and nobody was taking any chances. Fortunately, experts dealt with it.”
The crew relocated to a safe distance away from the location of the bomb on the island.
Who has been cast in Eternals?
Eternals‘ cast includes Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, Ma Dong-Seok, Kumail Nanjiani, Kit Harrington, Salma Hayek, Lia McHugh and Lauren Ridloff.
However, it was only reported that Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden and some crew members were present.
Whilst experts have defused the bomb, filming will be disrupted for a time as there is an investigation into the island.
An official speaking to The Sun said, ” The bomb in question appeared to have been there for decades untouched. Everyone on set was terrified because we didn’t know what would happen if we accidentally disturbed it.”
This is to ensure that there are no additional bombs that could activate during filming.
How long this disruption will be is unknown and it is not certain as to whether this will impact Marvel Studios’ schedule.
The Eternals is a film about a superhuman race that were created by the Celestials on Earth.
The Eternals is set to premiere on November 6 2020.
