Eternals 2 could be a step that Marvel will take in the build-up to Secret Wars, so, here’s everything we know so far.

While Marvel‘s first Eternals film was arguably hit and miss amongst audiences, the Eternals will clearly be a part of MCU canon, and considering the last film ended on somewhat of a cliff-hanger, then we can expect an Eternals sequel to be on the way.

However, not a ton of official information has been released about the project, not even a mention at this year’s Marvel presentation for San Diego Comic-Con, so a lot of factors are up in the air.

Information about the film may be vague, but here’s everything we know so far.

Is there an Eternals 2 release date?

Unfortunately, as of now, Eternals 2 has no confirmed release date.

The sequel film will depend on the dates when other Marvel properties come out, as the Eternals’ story will likely be integrated into the wider MCU plot as a whole. For example, if they join the Avengers, they’ll probably be involved in that initiative before they get a second movie.

So it seems like 2024 would be the earliest that we would ever get a sequel, but it may be even later than that.

Marvel Studios Exec, Nate Moore confirmed that the movie was happening with Phase Zero, stating in a interview, “I don’t want to spoil anything, but we have not seen the last of those characters.”

We will update this section as more news comes out.

Eternals 2: Is there a trailer?

Alas, since the Eternals sequel has yet to go into production, there are no trailers available.

For now, you can rewatch the trailer for the first film, to remind yourself of all the many characters.

Are there cast details for Eternals 2?

Currently, there is no official cast list for Eternals 2.

However, it seems certain that the majority of the first film’s stars will return if their contracts have anything to say about it. These stars include:

  • Sersi (Gemma Chan)
  • Kingo (Kumail Nanjiani)
  • Phastos (Brian Tyree Henry)
  • Makkari (Lauren Ridloff)
  • Druig (Barry Keoghan)
  • Thena (Angeline Jolie)

Kit Harington will also likely return as Dane Whitman, though he should also be playing the Black Knight, as one of the film’s post-credit scene implied this.

Since Salma Hayek’s Ajak, Richard Madden’s Ikaris, and Don Lee’s Gilgamesh were seemingly killed in the last film, they may not be returning, though we can’t rule out flashback appearances.

And since Lia Mchugh’s Sprite was turned human in the last film, she could very well be recast as she ages in the next film.

Patton Oswalt will seemingly return, as hinted by his post-credits scene. And along with him, the sequel may have some pop star power in the form of Harry Styles, who also debuted in that post-credits scene. Styles would be playing Eros, AKA the brother of Thanos. However, he recently stated in an interview with Rolling Stone UK that he wasn’t sure he would come back to the MCU.

Director Chloe Zhao could also return for the sequel, as she once stated to The Playlist, “I would be back in a second working with the team at Marvel.”

We will update this section as more news comes out.

Are there plot details for Eternals 2?

There is currently no official plot for Eternals 2.

However, we can imagine that the events of the last film will have some influence. Sersi, Kingo, and Phastos were all taken from Earth by Arishem, who plans to look into their memories to judge whether humanity is worthy of survival.

Meanwhile, Makkari, Druig, and Thena set off to inform other Eternals about their true purpose. They’re then joined by Eros, who promises that he can help them find their friends. Perhaps this will be the focus of the sequel.

Of course, the trajectory of the MCU should alter what kind of plot Eternals 2 will have, so we’ll have to wait and see how Phase 5 and 6 go.
