Marvel's The Eternals

Quote:
Marvel Studios has pinpointed its next potential franchise, the Jack Kirby-created title The Eternals, and is moving ahead with development.
The studio behind Avengers: Infinity War has hired writers Matthew and Ryan Firpo, whose spec script Ruin shot to the top of the 2017 Black List, to pen the script for the superhero team adventure.

In comics lore, the saga of the Eternals began millions of years ago when the cosmic beings known as the Celestials genetically experimented on humans, creating the super-powered and near-immortal beings and a more monstrous off-shoot known as the Deviants. The two races moved behind the scenes throughout human history while also engaging in Game of Thrones-style cosmic powerplays.
Among the characters are Ikaris, fueled by cosmic energy; Sersi, who relishes moving amongst humans; and Thena, often mistaken for the Greek goddess Athena.
Kirby created the title in 1976 during his cosmic hero stage and influenced by such as works as Chariots of the Gods, which explored ancient gods as aliens. The comic was his part of his second sojourn at Marvel, which he had left in 1970 and done the then-unthinkable, moved to rival DC Comics.
The Firpos are best known for writing Ruin, a spec script that shot to the top of the 2017 Black List. Even before that, the project was emanating enough heat that it attracted Gal Gadot and got set up at Marc Butanís MadRiver Pictures.
Ruin tells of an ex-Nazi captain who, to atone for his crimes, hunts down and kills the members of his former SS squad.
The Firpos are repped by UTA and LBI Entertainment.

Well, Marvel Studios can seemingly do no wrong. So bring it on, I guess.

I think the fox deal happened too late to have Silver Surfer in the Eternals, maybe a small cameo or hints at the heralds. I don't think the Silver Surfer has had great appearances in media outside comics though with the exception of the 90s SS cartoon.



To think that Fox could've had an Cosmic Marvel movie universe had they gone on with the Silver Surfer spin-off and the other cosmic X-Men characters. I guess it's best that they didn't since it likely would've been much inferior to the MCU one.

I suspect "The Eternals" will be kind of like what they originally intended the "The Inhumans" to be when it was still set to be a movie.

Sort of a... 1 part X-Men, 2 parts Guardians of the Galaxy, with Jack Kirby visual stuff kind of thing. Is what I'd expect.

I hope Galactus is now on the table as the new Saga Big Bad.

I wonder what will become the new McGuffin now that the Infinity Stones are gone.

Exactly. Makes me wonder why Feige doesn't like the Inhumans but doesn't mind the Eternals. Maybe because the Eternals are a little less "hey we don't have the rights to the X-Men so have these losers instead!"

Maybe make the Silver Surfer the connecting thread. We see him show up at a planet in the end credits of Guardians of the Galaxy 3, same for Eternals, and Captain Marvel 2... and then we finally see him show up at Earth in an end credits scene right before the next Avengers event movie.

I'm sure Galactus will be the big bad but I'm sure we will only get the vaguest of hints until Avengers 5 to milk out the "WILL THEY USE GALACTUS OR NOT" free marketing speculation from fans. It's cool, I think Galactus is a nice way to finish another 10 year story arc if it is able to achieve that again.

Galactus will be interesting when it eventually happens.

When I think of him appearing in a movie, I want to see true existential terror. I mean, just seeing something of that size that "eats planets" should send ripples of terror down everyone's spine.

Of course, I'm afraid it will be somewhat handwaved. The effects of the snap were portrayed maybe better than I expected. But I guess I crave a certain amount of existential terror to go along with those types of situations, which isn't exactly the MCU's bag.

Really wouldn't take much though. Think of "2001: A Space Odyssey". Just the music and cinematography surrounding the scene in which our protagonists first encounter the "monolith". Sends chills of wonder & terror down my spine. Would love to see Galactus treated with that type of respect and reverence.

Here is the scene itself.
