Eternals Director Spills the Beans: The Marvel Movie Will Feature Two Mid-Credits Scenes
Eternals is set to premiere at the Rome Festival in just two weeks, and the lucky Europe-based Marvel fans are already eagerly waiting for whatever the credits will have in store for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
As if confirmation of a post-credits scene wasn’t enough, Eternals director and Oscar winner Chloe Zhao just revealed that the credits of the highly-anticipated Phase Four film will have even more surprises for fans.
"Don’t just stay for the first one—also stay for the second one, too. They are equally as important in weight, and both have big surprises for you,” shared Zhao to Fandago.
Eternals will be one of the longest films in the MCU, capping at about 2.5 hours, but sitting through the whole film will be worth it to catch a glimpse of the mid-credits and post-credits scenes. According to Zhao, they couldn’t avoid the movie’s 2.5-hour length considering that the film is tackling ten characters, 7,000 years, and the Celestials all at once. Despite all the material, the film will be able to act as a standalone in the MCU.
“If you know half the universe disappeared and it came back, that's all you need to know to watch this film. But what happens in this film will have huge implications on the future,” said Zhao.
Could this mean hints of the multiverse? Phase Four shows WandaVision, Loki, and What If?, and upcoming films Spider-Man: No Way Home and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness are all setting up the franchise for a major problem in the multiverse, and we’d bet our VPN that the Eternals will dive into the multiverse alongside Spiderman and Dr. Strange. But it’s all speculation for now until Eternals premieres later this month.
