“Over the years we have not interfered … until now”says one of the Eternals in the trailer for the long-awaited movie Chloe Zhao. It is also public knowledge that these are the most powerful characters in Marvel. Then, a question arises regarding what happened in the Infinity Saga of the MCU: Because the Eternals they did not help fight Thanos when the villain wiped out half the universe?
In graphic novels the beings known as Celestials created, from human DNA, the Eternals and also the monstrous Deviants. The creators of the Eternals They gave the powerful beings a mission: to observe the development of humanity, without interfering. At least until the Celestials achieve a value judgment on the human race. Is this the real reason?
Why didn’t the Eternals fight Thanos?
In the movie trailer, Sersi confirms to Dane Whitman that the Eternals they can only interfere in conflicts involving Deviants as a real threat. The blip with which Avengers revived half the population of the universe gave the necessary energy to the resurgence of monstrous villains. That’s why the Eternals they decide to get together again. Ikaris tells Invite they must find the rest of their kind.
In the vignettes, Thanos is linked to Eternals, that’s why it has the ability to manipulate Infinity Stones. Up first the allegations, interpreted by Angelina Jolie in the MCU, is part of the group of Eternals found on Earth. It is not yet clear if they will maintain that aforementioned relationship with the villain in the new entry of the brand.
The truth is that in graphic novels a Eternal decided to act to help humans. Is about Gilgamesh, who is subsequently exiled from Earth and recognized as “The forgotten one”. In the cinema, Eternals will return to action in full force to counter the terrible threat Deviant. These brutal beings could end humanity if no one stops them.
Everything indicates that the threat Deviant could be worse than Thanos! The bet is strong, because the Mad Titan managed to defeat the heroes of Earth and, for a long five years, maintained that victory until the Avengers They discovered a way to modify the villain’s actions and, through the infinity gauntlet, revived half the universe.
