ETERNALS Producer Compares The Team's Powers To Captain Marvel And Says They're Not Too "Godlike"

Eternals producer Nate Moore has weighed in on how the team would fare against a hero like Captain Marvel, confirming that Marvel Studios doesn't necessarily have a ranking system when it comes to powers.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is home to a number of extremely powerful superheroes, including Thor and Captain Marvel. While the Scarlet Witch's abilities appear to be on a whole 'nother level, Carol Danvers is an absolute powerhouse and it feels like Marvel Studios has only just scratched the surface of what she's able to do. 

When Screen Rant spoke to Eternals producer Nate Morre on the set of the movie in 2020, they asked how this superhero team compares to Captain Marvel in terms of sheer power. Angelina Jolie's Thena was used as an example, and it sounds like she'd give Carol a real run for her money. 

"I mean, when Captain Marvel goes binary, that is tough, but it would be as if Captain America - who I would argue is probably the best physical fighter - was powered by cosmic weapons, like, she's going to be a problem, but again, Captain Marvel going binary, that's tough," Moore pondered.

"I mean, look, they're obviously stronger than humans. I think you look at our amazing heroes, like Hawkeye and Black Widow wouldn’t have a problem. We didn't want them to be too godlike because I do think you run the risk of them being less relatable. And I guess Thor’s managed that pretty well. But we don't necessarily have a ranking system."

"We do think they occupy their own pocket and I do think down the line, if and when they were to intersect with other characters," he concluded, "that's a fun thing to investigate."

It seems inevitable the Eternals will eventually cross paths with other characters from the wider MCU, especially given Sersi's history as an Avenger, for example.

They're clearly a powerful bunch, though it is interesting to hear that Marvel Studios doesn't necessarily rank their superheroes in terms of how formidable they are; regardless Earth now has a new group of mighty heroes, and that means the threats facing the planet will have to be that little stronger.

Eternals is set to be released in theaters on November 5!
