Marvel Studios’ Eternals was released on November 2021 and introduced several characters including 10 supernatural beings who were known as the Eternals. The story progresses further on only to end in a massive cliffhanger leaving the fans in the dust of speculations giving birth to a whole universe of theories of what could’ve happened in the end and beyond.
One such speculation suggests that Tiamut (one of the Celestial in Eternals) after being stopped from emerging by the Eternals in order to save the Earth and humanity by getting frozen in the Indian ocean becomes an Adamantium deposit which could possibly bring back the X-Men.
The Eternals Ended With Only Curiosity
(The article dives a bit into the story which could include spoilers!)
The plot line of Eternals follows a group of 10 immortal superhuman beings who were sent to Earth from their home planet Olympia to protect humanity from predators created by the Celestials known as The Deviants. Throughout, the Eternals continue moving to other civilizations and protecting them from the Deviants.
As the Eternals were sent to Earth to protect human civilization, they were also unaware that they were also defending a seed that would create a Celestial Tiamut in the process. once a certain amount of population of intelligent life was reached. When that happens, the Emergence would take the process further resulting in the destruction of the planet and the birth of the Celestial Tiamut, which would allow for new life and galaxies to form.
In hopes to delay The Emergence, the Eternals take every possible route and try every possible strategy. From telepathy to getting attacked by beasts, they fought through every obstacle to everyone’s amazement. The story then goes on till the end when Ikaris(A Celestial) ultimately surrenders due to his love for Sersi(A Celestial), allowing her to vanquish Tiamut. Filled with guilt, Ikaris flies directly into the sun.
Captain America: NWO Could Dig Into Adamantium and the X-Men
Whilst the ending of The Eternals shows Tiamut’s corpse rising like an island in the Indian Ocean after it was frozen and stopped in the movie, the Phase V of MCU would explain details and give rise to more possibilities with the speculation of a return of The X-Men. Although how exactly this conflict will connect to Captain America: New World Order still remains in the shadows.
The ones who are familiar with the X-Men comic books might remember that Genosha is an area taken over by mutants only. Well, theories have been going around that this is, in fact, “Tiamut Island,” which could be highlighted in Captain America: New World Order. It is also expected that the higher powers of authority would take notice of that and try to use the remains of the Celestial as a house of Adamantium and as we know the government planted Adamantium into Logan thereby, we can sense a connection to X-Men.
The entire Phase 5 release date schedule was revealed at Comic-Con 2022 giving the fans an idea of the upcoming shows and movies and their release dates. Some of them include Loki season 2
The Marvels, Blade, Ironheart, Agatha: Coven of Chaos, Daredevil: Born Again, Captain America: New World Order, Thunderbolts.
Fans are definitely excited about what’s in store with theories and speculations floating around of what the new installments could have to offer especially after Phase 4 almost pulled the curtains on a few of our favorite superstars and brought the spotlight on many new characters.
Captain America: New World Order shall reach the theaters on May 3, 2024, whilst Eternals is streaming now, exclusively on Disney+.
