Did Marvel Just Tease The Eternals Reveal at Comic-Con?
If the Russo Brothers aren’t teasing us with potential Marvel reveals at Comic-Con, Marvel Entertainment’s Twitter page will happily oblige. The Russos have been tweeting out cryptic videos about their upcoming Hall H panel this Friday. Now Marvel Entertainment just shot off this tweet that encourages us to get to know who The Eternals are. Could they be prepping us for the reveal of The Eternals movie at Comic-Con? It’s certainly a distinct possibility.
Marvel is taking over Hall H at SDCC, and as Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige once told Cinemablend, the studio would only book the colossal venue when Marvel had “a lot of stuff to talk about or reveal.” Revealing footage, or even just a full cast list, from The Eternals, would certainly qualify. Here’s the tweet:

Marvel has not officially announced any films after Spider-Man: Far From Home. Obviously, they’ve got a ton cooking. Phase 4 is officially underway, and The Eternals will factor into this phase. If you’ve clicked on the above link, you’ll learn a bit more about this super powerful group, which they describe thusly:
“The Eternals are a race of god-like beings locked in a millennium-old conflict with the less evolved Deviants and their originators, the Celestials. Each Eternal has watched civilizations burgeon and die from their domain of Olympia – they are immortals blessed with strange, sometimes monstrous, powers.”
Maybe Marvel Entertainment just wants to, randomly, the week of Comic-Con, reintroduce their lesser-known superheroes? Sure, it’s possible. It’s also possible they’re giving fans a chance to get a primer on who The Eternals are before Marvel takes to Hall H to reveal their big-screen adaptation. We know the film’s happening—Kevin Feige has talked about the film’s potential, and The Rider‘s Chloe Zhao is attached to direct. There’s also a cast list—Angelina Jole, Kumail Nanjiani, and Dong-seok Ma have all been named, with Salma Hayek and Richard Madden rumored. But a proper Comic-Con reveal would immediately become major news. Perhaps this tweet is preparing us. We’ll know soon enough.
