RUMOR: THE ETERNALS To Be Part Of MCU ‘Phase 4’
As fans patiently wait for Infinity War to hit theaters, the internet and twitter has been a barren wasteland of rumors and “what if’s” regarding Phase 4. But now thanks to Jeremy Conrad from MCUCOSMIC.com, the wait is no more! The latest hot rumor is that THE ETERNALS will be part of Marvel Studios’ Phase 4!
There have been several rumors and speculations about what “Phase Four” could possibly feature for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in the foreseeable future. The most recurring theory of them all is that the next round of installments are going to deal with “Marvel Cosmic” in great capacity. The latest word through the same grapevine makes a similar claim.
Taking to Twitter earlier this week, veteran pop culture blogger Jeremy Conrad stated that an announcement about Phase Four and Marvel Cosmic is going to be made in the next week.
While he refused to divulge any substantial details, he did tease that the MCU will be heading into unexpected territories. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) was mentioned in reference and how Marvel Studios plans to capitalize on the great “unknown” in the next phase of installments.
This is no April Fool’s joke.
I just heard something AWESOME about Marvel’s Phase 4 and Marvel Cosmic.
But can’t say what it is just yet. Wait about a week…

Last I’ll say on it right now: It sounds like Marvel is taking the MCU into completely unexpected and new places in Phase 4. Things people will never in a million years expect. But like Guardians in 2014, Marvel will make the unknown into a huge hit.

Conrad further added that Marvel Cosmic has nothing to do with the characters currently under the 20th Century Fox banner; ruling out the likes of the Silver Surfer, Galactus, Annihilus, and such. This might also rule out the X-Men and Fantastic Four in the process. The only characters left behind that can be attributed to the cosmos are perhaps the Celestials, Beyonder, and Adam Warlock.
The only known current substantial facts about Phase Four is that Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 will be the first installmentPresently, making up the Marvel Phase 4 plans includes Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 on July 5, 2019 and Guardians of the Galaxy 3 in 2020; a Black Widow movie is also said to be in the works.
The untitled Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel will be the first movie to initiate Phase Four, as well as being the first movie to be set right after the untitled sequel to Avengers: Infinity War. It is scheduled to release in theaters on July 5, 2019. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will follow afterwards in 2020, hopefully alongside the standalone Black Widow movie.
Take this rumor with a grain of salt but now Conrad is reporting that THE ETERNALS will be joining the MCU.

According to Wikipedia, The Eternals are a fictional race of superhumans described as an offshoot of the evolutionary process that created sentient life on Earth. The original instigators of this process, the alien Celestials, intended the Eternals to be the defenders of Earth, which leads to the inevitability of war against their destructive counterparts, the Deviants. The Eternals were created by Jack Kirby and made their first appearance in The Eternals #1.

Out of left field. I love it. Had all but forgotten the Eternals.
I think Colton Parsons can voice Ikaris in the movie Eternals in MCU the one who voiced Junior Bear in Unstable Fables: The Goldilocks and the 3 Bears Show, wouldn’t that be neat when he’s hired as a returning actor that his voice sounds deep
