Eternals 2 Looks Dead After A New Marvel Studios Rumor

It’s not too surprising to hear that Marvel is purportedly done with the Eternals. Aside from its mixed reviews, “Eternals” wasn’t the biggest box office success, grossing just north of $400 million on a $200 million budget. Following its release, the creatives behind the film expressed interest in returning to Chloe Zhao’s world. In 2022, Marvel exec Nate Moore told ComicBook.com that audiences hadn’t seen the last of the Eternals and that they would show up … eventually. He notably didn’t confirm a sequel. 

Marvel isn’t one to pick up and simply drop characters. There are several intriguing ways in which characters who debuted in “Eternals” could pop up in other marquee projects. While speaking to W Magazine, Gemma Chan said she’ll return as Sersi, though she didn’t mention any specific projects. It should also be noted that a sequel to “Eternals” was never actually greenlit, though even Zhao stated that she’d be on board for a second movie if the opportunity arose.

As Marvel continues to retool itself in the wake of its commercial and critical misfires, it seems like a sequel is the least of the studio’s concerns. But that doesn’t mean the studio is throwing away Zhao’s universe — Mahershala Ali’s upcoming “Blade” movie could have a villain connected to “Eternals.”
