Marvel Studio Gave The MCU Film A Slight Title Change, What Could That Indicate?
Marvel this morning announced that it has officially scrapped ‘The’ off the title from the studio’s upcoming flick, The Eternals. Without minor other changes, the logo for Eternals has also been updated on the Marvel website. The MCU’s next will now simply be regarded as ‘Eternals’. It is set to be the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first major superhero team-up movie in phase 4.
Based on Jack Kirby’s The Eternals, the film is an adaptation of a comic book series from the ’70s that introduced a race of immortals to the Marvel Universe. In a new addition to their website, Marvel has also begun the countdown to the theatrical release of Eternals which in today’s date reads to be 167 days away.
The newest super-team of Marvel’s next is full of big names, and equally, some promising new entrants. Angelina Jolie will be playing a crucial role in the film as the warrior Thena, and Game of Thrones fame Richard Madden is set to step into the role of Ikaris. The very funny Kumail Nanjiani has signed up for Kingo who is a master swordsman and Bollywood film star; Brian Tyree Henry is the inventor Phastos; Train to Busan’s Don Lee is Gilgamesh, and Barry Keoghan is Druig.
Following the release of Black Widow on the 6th of November this year, Eternals will be just the second MCU phase 4 installment to be released. Details of the film’s plot have yet not been out.
The sudden title change and the upload of a countdown on their website could possibly be hinting at the production studio gearing up for promotional windows. Fans are suggesting that the trailer could possibly drop in the coming month of September. Marvel Studios Eternals directed by Chloe Zhao is set to hit the theaters on 12 Februry 2021.
