It looks like Marvel has decided to add a little update to the title of The Eternals.
According to a report by ComicBook.com, Marvel has officially decided to drop the word “The” from The Eternals. We’re not quite sure why the studio has decided to change the movie’s title at this point in time (though we do admit the update is a rather small one), but perhaps Marvel thought it would be snapper to call the film Eternals without having a determiner hanging on its lip.
Aside from the title update, there hasn’t been that much news about Marvel’s Eternals movie. Fans have been itching for a teaser for the longest time now, however, it seems like Marvel won’t be dropping any previews for the Eternals anytime soon.
There have been a few interviews though. Speaking with ComicBook.com, Eternals writer Kieron Gillen discusses his main goal in writing Marvel’s new comic book movie – to show how Marvel’s cosmic gods fit in the larger narrative tapestry of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
"At least part of what I’m trying to do is to tie all these strands together, into a coherent, epic history of the Eternal’s own," Gillen told the entertainment news outlet, When you’ve finished the first issue, you’ll know what the Eternals are for, and why they’re not really like anything else. From that point on, I’m just adding more to it – details, angles, worlds to lose and find yourself in."
According to Gillen, the Eternals are Marvel’s “angels,” serving as the oldest protectors of the universe. We wonder how the Eternals are going to fit into the MCU timeline once the film comes out.
The Eternals is set to release on February 12, 2021.
