Eternals: Answering Some Of The Unanswered Questions And Mysteries!

Eternals, after a long wait and hype, was released earlier this month. Even though it didn’t get a good rating, but that didn’t stop fans to hit the theatre and watch it. Turns out, the movie was indeed great. BUT, one thing that bothers us is the cliffhangers with which it ends. The movie truly expanded the MCU on a cosmic level. But this sort of complicated things for the fans since a few things were difficult to comprehend. The movie introduced us to a great team of 11 superheroes who were nearly immortal beings trying to save the people of Earth. They were hiding for thousands of years until they had to reunite to fight a battle against the Deviants. However, towards the end, the team splits up. Some leave Earth to find more of Eternals, while some stay here. So, let’s answer some of the questions and mysteries:

Dane Whitman: What Did He Learn About His Family?

In the movie, we can see Dane Whitman (Kit Harrington) was having issues with his uncle. Dane got a call from the Eternal Sersi (Gemma Chan) who asked him to sort out his issues with his uncle. In the end, Dane revealed that he found something about his family history which is ‘complicated’ than he thought. So, this means, he found something unusual and unsettling after reaching out to his uncle. However, the movie doesn’t reveal it.

In the post-credit scene, Dane was shown opening a box that had the Ebony Blade. The comic readers wouldn’t have been surprised with this scene because they knew he was the Black Knight in the comics and wielder of the Blade. However, Black Knight’s legacy wasn’t relevant for the Eternals, so the movie didn’t focus on this side of the story.

Ikaris: Is He Dead? If Yes, Is He Gone For Good?

Ikaris (Richard Madden) might have survived the final battle. But it looked like he perished after the aftermath. We all saw him flying into the sun. This was a clear hint that this was the end of his journey. However, it is a fact in the comics that the Celestials are difficult to kill. So, there’s a chance we can have Ikaris back in the game and his suicide attempt could’ve been a failure.

There’s also a possibility that the Celestials might have interfered so that they can continue using him to their advantage. He was a loyal soldier of the Arishem the Judge, so keeping him alive makes sense.

What’s The Fate Of The Captured Eternals?

In the end, we see the team splitting up. Thena, Druig, and Makkari left Earth in search of more Eternals. However, Kingo, Sprite, Sersi, and Phastos decided to stay here. But, Kingo, Sersi, and Phastos were kidnapped and taken hostages. They were taken somewhere where their memories would be evaluated. Accordingly, they would decide what should be done to them.

Who will save them? Well, Dane Whitman could be a candidate. But since they showed us him with the Ebony Blade, it would hint at him being in some different setup. Maybe Starfox (Harry Styles) and Pip the Troll (Patton Oswalt) along with the remaining three Eternals might save them!
