Eternals line up revealed

The line-up of the funky little brother to the Avengers behemoth, The Eternals, has seemed to make its way into the world.

Written by Matthew and Ryan Firpo, the MCU flick based on the super-beings will take fans in a new direction within the Marvel universe, as it looks at Jack Kirbys 1976 run on his own comic creation.

Focusing on the Eternals (so not just a jazzy name), which were created by the Celestials (that, remember, created the Infinity/Soul Stones) The Hashtag Show has claimed the team for the flick will consist of characters Ikaris, Sersi, Gilgamesh, Elysius, Makkari, Thena, Zuras, and Starfox, interestingly the brother of Thanos, villain of Infinity War.

So theres a nice link to the current Avengers phase, should you need it.

According to the website, there will also be a character by the name of Piper, which it alleged is a new take on the character Sprite (thirsty?), with the villain reportedly being Druig.

As of yet, there has been no leaked mention of the Deviants, which go against the Eternals and Celestials, but we all know nothing goes too calmly in the MCU for too long before a baddie is thrown into the mix.

The film, set a million years ago, apparently, is said to be going into production here in London next fall, and will follow on from Avengers 4, filling in the gaps in the universe before it all went down – but thats really all we know so far.

While MCU boss Kevin Feige wouldnt give too much away during a Q&A recently, he did compare the film to Guardians of the Galaxy, which didnt have much hype before hitting screens and, as we now know, became a runaway success.

[I can say] very little when it comes to Eternals, but I will say your reaction about not being familiar with The Eternals is perfect because most people werent familiar with Guardians and believe it or not there were people who were not familiar with Avengers or with Iron Man, he told Bionic Buzz.

Hold up – there was once a time when people werent familiar with Avengers? Well we strain to remember that.

He added: So for us, its finding great stories whether people have heard of them or not and bring them to the big screen in as an amazing way as we can.
