    Seriously, I get that none of us gives a crap about the Eternals, but that's exactly why I'm looking forward to the movie. It's a property that even many hardcore Marvel fans are unfamiliar with... "a whole new world", to quote the wise Aladdin. :o

    Not to mention that the movie will be used to introduce classic characters such as Starfox and hopefully Hercules. How is that a bad thing

    Will Eternals be used to introduce mutants into the MCU? Probably. Is Eternals really an X-Men movie in disguise? No. Just because it is going to introduce concepts behind how mutants came into existence, that doesn't mean this is really an X-Men movie. I think that is just wishful thinking from you guys just because you have no loyalty to this property and just want to see X-Men. But, how many on here overtly cared about the Guardians before the movie? More than Eternals for sure, but still not nearly as much as say, The Avengers or something.

    Let us not fear something new and different, guys.

    There's so much of the Earth-bound stuff left untapped from a smaller not-Ant-Man scale perspective...which who knows if the miniseries are enough.
    That's why a movie like Venom did so well because audiences clearly aren't tired of just straight-forward stories.
    Thus, the innate uneasiness to a cosmic-heavy future slate.

    I don't think it's because of that. Most fans just genuinely don't give a fig about the Eternals, that is all.

    As it was me this time getting the ball rolling on this conspiracy theory, I feel obliged to state that I am indeed an Eternals fan: if this movie goes through, I'll be more than overjoyed, besides the MCU's X-Men/mutants debut will come in some form anyway, even if not in this flick.
    It is just a hunch, or maybe I can still not believe that we will get an Eternals feature.

    Well, 30 years ago if you said to my just starting school self that one day we would get Bumblebee and Aquaman movies, I would have answered "BEST NEWS EVER!!!" and "Why? How? No, no, why?". :D
    I'mma still go see Aquaman in the theater though, I've become more open minded in the interim.

    Dude, have you read Eternals by Neil Gaiman and John Romita ? It might make a fan out of you too - good blueprint for a movie IMO.

    I have not, but I kinda want to. I want to understand what Feige sees in this property.

    For me personally it's a bit of both
    I don't know even the teensiest bit about the Eternals (and I've been reading comics for 25 years, if that tells you how much Marvel has tried to push them over the years)
    And I also prefer earth-based heroes and stories over the cosmic stuff, it's part of why I haven't been able to get into the Guardians and Capt Marvel comics despite really wanting to like them

    I came up an X-Fan, so I always liked comics better when they reflected semi-realistic issues, space sagas are too plot-heavy and too "out-there" most of the time for me

    I get what you're saying but let's take a look at the Phase 4 slate:

    Far From Home
    Black Widow
    Eternals
    Shang-Chi
    Guardians of the Galaxy 3
    Black Panther 2
    Doctor Strange 2

    That's 2 cosmic movies out of 7 (Captain Marvel 2 could go either way). To me it looks like you guys are already getting what you want. So shut up and leave the Eternals alone.

    An Eternals movie sounds fascinating, being set millions of years in the past gives the writers more creative freedom.

    I see 3 potentially grounded "Marvel at its core appeal" movies out of 7.

    Far From Home, Black Widow, Shang-Chi and Black Panther 2... that's 4. Part of Doctor Strange 2 will probably take place in other dimensions, but he's still an Earth hero.

    The Fox deal will close no later April.
    Robert Downey Jr and/or Chris Evans will retire from the MCU
    Phase 4 announcements will be split across Comic-Con and D23. E.G 2020 films revealed at comic-con. Big reveals like F4 and X-Men at D23.
    Fantastic Four is announced for the Phase 4 slate with a 2021 or 2022 release date
    X-Men will not be part of phase 4 but will be confirmed to be in active development, will take a bit longer than Fantastic Four - Cool down period after New Mutants.
    Nova will make his debut in Phase 4
    Silver Surfer will be the first Fantastic Four character we meet.

    is this a non-MCU series? and like an Agents of S.M.A.S.H. adaptation?

    I think a good number of those could happen.

    I wouldn't be surprised if either...
    Tony dies and Steve becomes SHIELD Director
    OR
    Steve gets sent back in time presumed dead and Tony becomes SHIELD Director

    Either that or very early in Phase 5

    It would be the coolest thing ever if he was the post-credits surprise in ENDGAME

    This could really work.
    Does this get round the Universal rights issue?

    I'm wondering if they;ll try and have the best of both worlds. Let Disney use Parker for a percentage and use Morales in their spin-off universe?

    Marvel owns the tv rights to all their characters, but because they pretty much package any live-action stuff to the MCU (they didn't even use the Daily Bugle for Netflix Daredevil), the only way to get around it would be to do a Hulk show that has nothing to do with what's already been introduced OR sign off with Universal like they did with FOX.

    I don't have the exact quote but I remember Peyton Reed saying there were easter eggs in the quantum realm that would be referred to years from now.

    *insert obligatory Martin Lawrence joke here*

    The Quantum Realm city from Ant-Man and the Wasp. Don't ask me what does a city in the Quantum Realm have to do with a guy who's mostly famous for wielding a cursed sword because I have no idea.
