Eternals Movie Had One Specific Restriction Because Of Inhumans TV Show
Marvel put one restriction on Eternals writers because of Inhumans, a Marvel Television/ABC Studios series. Although the latest entry in the MCU has received mixed reviews from critics and fans alike, it is still a far superior product to Marvel’s original attempt at a heroic group of ancient aliens living secretly on Earth. Marvel was perhaps reminded by these similarities to follow a specific rule with the Eternals writers.
The Inhumans TV Series debuted in IMAX theaters on September 17, 2017, and moved to ABC two weeks later. The series was not able to succeed despite a cast of talented actors. Critics were dissatisfied with the series’ low budget and limited superpower and special effects usage, as well as a long and tedious story. Before ABC canceled it, the series lasted just one eight-episode episode.
A recent interview between Ryan Firpo and Kaz Firpo revealed that the movie was subject to one restriction due to the Humans TV series. Ryan Firpo said he hadn’t heard of the Humans series, but he did read about it during the making of Eternals. He doesn’t know how it influenced the movie. Kaz answered a question about Inhumans. It was due to the TV series that the only rule Marvel gave them, but it doesn’t seem like a heavy burden. Below is the restriction.
“… Inhumans were only part of the conversation. They said that “You can’t travel to Hawaii.” This is true because Inhumans destroyed that bridge. There wasn’t anyone saying, “We can’t do this, can’t do that.”
Some writing teams might have been discouraged by the unhappy end to a project that had a similar premise to the MCU, but the Firpos were unaffected. Ryan explained that their calmness was due to reminding people that ” This was just a new era, an entirely different team, and a totally different project.” At the same time, Kaz talked about how Marvel is all for hiring people who love what they do and letting them do it. With many stories having similar characters and premises, the only difference between movies and TV is the creative minds.
The ultimate success is still in question, as it has been controversial among critics and fans. There are many arguments about where the problems came from. Some point to the large cast, length of the story, and odd dialogue choices. These projects could be regarded as low points in MCU history that the creative team and Marvel producers can learn from.
Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War plot went sour in Eternals. Marvel Cinematic Universe fans speculated heavily about the potential role of the Mad Titan in Eternals, considering Thanos’ connection with the Eternals comics. Although the Phase 4 movie didn’t include Thanos, it did feature Eros’ MCU debut. However, it is still connected to his story. This includes the revelation that Thanos’ Avengers plan saved Earth from destruction.
Marvel Studios brought Thanos to the MCU in Avengers. He began to acquire the Infinity Stones by himself in Phase 3. Thanos wanted all six Infinity Stones so that he could use the Infinity Gauntlet to snap his fingers and wipe out half of the universe’s life. It was a catastrophic cosmic event that revealed just how dangerous Thanos was. Even though Marvel’s What If demonstrated how small his plan was compared to Ultron’s. Eternals is a new twist on MCU’s mythology. It changes Thanos’ plan and shows how it backfired.
Marvel shows in Eternals how a Celestial called Tiamat has lived inside Earth for thousands upon thousands of years. Once the Earth’s population has reached a certain energy level, Tiamat will emerge from the planet and wipe out the Celestial. This happens in Eternals just after Avengers Endgame. However, the movie shows that humanity reached the required energy level before Avengers Infinity War. The Emergence was supposed to occur at this point. However, Thanos used Infinity Stones to wipe out half of the life on Earth and the entire universe. This was how Thanos stopped Earth’s destruction and showed that his Avengers plan backfired.
Ironically, Thanos was unaware that he played a key role in preventing Earth’s destruction. To bring about balance in the universe, the Mad Titan waited several years before he could act. He could have waited another week to make his plan to conquer Earth. This would also mean that Earth-based MCU heroes wouldn’t be able to stop him. The only MCU characters that could have stood up against him were Captain Marvel, Thor, and Guardians of the Galaxy if he had the six Infinity Stones. Thanos’ timing ensured that The Emergence did not destroy Earth, and the Avengers were still available to reverse it five years later.
Although Thanos’ goal in Avengers Infinity War was to rebalance the universe, Earth could have prevented his rebalancing from being permanent. It would have taken a very different group of MCU heroes to stop Thanos without Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and half the universe’s population. It is not clear what would have happened to the Time Stone or Mind Stone if Earth had been destroyed. Tiamat could have taken control of them, making it harder for Thanos Avengers to execute his plan. Saves Earth and does it.
