Shortly before the release of ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'', it was revealed by Creator/KevinFeige that Marvel Studios was in the early stages of developing a film adaptation of the series as part of the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse. Writers Matthew and Ryan Firpo were initially reported to be working on a script for the film in early 2018, with prospective director Chloe Zhao joining later that year, although Marvel has yet to officially announce the project, as a way of keeping in line with their secrecy on nearly every post-''Film/AvengersEndgame'' project. Creator/AngelinaJolie, Creator/KumailNanjiani, and Ma Dong-Seok (''Film/TrainToBusan'') are reportedly in talks for lead roles in the film, while Marvel Studios' first openly LGBTQ lead character will reportedly feature in the cast, possibly [[ComicBook/TheIncredibleHercules Hercules]], but it's not been confirmed who it would be.

* UnPerson: After stopping a fight at one of Cersei's parties, Iron Man talks to Cersei, saying that she may want to stay out of the conflict but as a former Avenger, she needs to figure out whether or not to register. A baffled Cersei says she has no powers and has never been an Avenger. Iron Man figures she's playing her usual games and leaves. But when he goes to Avengers Mansion to get information, Iron Man is struck to discover that all data regarding Cersei from her files to her image in Avengers group photos, has been completely erased.

Aside from the standalone film, the mythology of the franchise was previously alluded to in other MCU movies. ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' and ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'' introduced the concepts of Celestials in the films, with Eson the Searcher having a cameo, Knowhere being the decomposing head of a long-dead Celestial, and Ego the Living Planet referring to himself as a Celestial. ''Infinity War'' itself has a reference to the franchise in that Thanos's father, A'Lars (The Mentor), is mentioned by name, and Thanos's home world of Titan was a home for the species. ''Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3'' was originally intended to lay the groundwork for ''The Eternals'', but plans changed once ''Vol. 3'' was delayed, and ''The Eternals'' will now be made first.

Added DiffLines:

* BigRedDevil: Kro uses this form when he wants to terrify humans. He's big and red normally, so his disguise really just involves growing some horns.

* CanonWelding: The aliens in the backstory of the Robert Grayson incarnation of Marvel Boy were eventually confirmed to be Eternals who left Earth to explore space.


Added DiffLines:

* DatingCatwoman: Thena and Kro used to have a bit of a thing going on. They're still on relatively good terms, being some of the few representatives of their races capable of speaking diplomatically to each other.
* HomeOfTheGods: Most Eternals live in Olympia, a city hidden among the mountains of Greece. A few other cities are mentioned, like Polaria in Russia and Oceana in the Pacific. Saturn's moon of Titan got retconned into a colony set up by some spacefaring Eternals.


Added DiffLines:

* SocialDarwinist: Rapid reproduction and a high mutation rate means the Deviant population is pretty unstable, and they have a festival for culling the "dead ends" [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything in giant ovens]]. Thena is appropriately horrified.


* AdvancedAncientAcropolis: Olympia and anything the Celestials left behind.



* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Mostly played straight with the Eternals being beautiful and good while the Deviants are mostly ugly and evil. Inverted with the Reject and Karkas; Thena's sympathies are originally with the former because he's a fairly handsome guy, but he's also a violet killer, while the monstrous Karkas is well-spoken and just wants to be loved.
