It Sounds Like THE ETERNALS Will Change The Marvel Cinematic Universe Forever

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has dropped some very intriguing clues about The Eternals, hinting that the introduction of these characters could fundamentally change the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

THOR was a game changer for the Marvel Cinematic Universe as it introduced the idea of Norse mythology into what had previously been a very grounded world. Since then, Marvel Studios has taken us into outer space and introduced all manner of wacky and wonderful characters but it sounds like The Eternals will shake things up in an even bigger way as they could change the MCU's entire history. 

When Kevin Feige was asked whether or not the planned movie will tie into Greek mythology in the way Jack Kirby envisioned when he created the characters, he said: "Well, one of the cool things about that property and what Jack Kirby did with it and what’s been done with it in recent years is it does tie into they’re called Eternals, they’ve been around for a long time. There’s this notion of all of these myths and legends that we know from ancient times, were they inspired by the Eternals?"
 
What this means is that we could finally see the likes of Hercules and Ares introduced to the MCU, not to mention a retcon of sorts for the early days of mankind. "Were they Eternals? It’s a very … you know, it’s an ancient aliens kind of sci-fi trope that we think would be fun to explore someday," he teased, seemingly making it clear that these characters are essentially replacing the Inhumans!
 
There are a lot of different directions The Eternals could head in and it's going to be very interesting seeing how things play out with this one. What do you guys think? Let us know your thoughts below.
