Eternals: New Trailer Appears to Feature Chilling Age of Ultron Easter Egg

Eternals has yet to be released, but Marvel fans have already discovered some fascinating Easter eggs.

The upcoming superhero film, directed by Oscar-winning Nomadland filmmaker Chloe Zhao, is slated to hit theaters next month.

A new trailer landed ahead of the film's arrival - and it wasn't long before eagle-eyed fans discovered a groundbreaking detail for the MCU.

Based on the comic series of the same name, Eternals focuses on a race of immortal beings who protect planet earth from supernatural threats. Among these villains are the ancient enemies called Deviants who are expected to make their debut in the upcoming movie.

A theory posted on Reddit, as reported by Inverse, argues that Marvel may have foreseen the Deviant's arrival at the MCU more than six years ago.

What if ...? Season 1 is drawing to a close, it's time for Marvel fans to prepare for the arrival of Eternals. The long-awaited Marvel Cinematic Universe movie will be the next Marvel Studios title in 2021. It will introduce the audience to its titular heroes - a group of immortal beings who first arrived on earth thousands of years ago.

The Eternals aren't the only notable characters to make their MCU debut in the upcoming film, though they'll also play a prominent role in the superhero flick with their old enemies, the Deviants. A new MCU fan theory argues that Marvel may have foreseen the so-called "appearance" of the deviants on Earth just over six years ago.


Thor's Vision - A keen-eyed Marvel fan recently discovered a strange similarity between multiple shots in the latest Eternals trailer and the vision Thor (Chris Hemsworth) received in Avengers: Age of Ultron in 2015. To put it more clearly, the Redditor noticed how similar the shot of a comet / asteroid / alien (?) On Earth in the Eternals trailer (see above) is to an apocalyptic shot of a very similar object landing on Thor's Age of Ultron Vision (see below).

Later in the film, after Thor helps bring Vision (Paul Bettany) to life, the God of Thunder opens up to his friends about what he's seen. “I had a vision,” he says. "A whirlpool that soaks up all hope for life."

At this time he is referring to the Mind Stone and the rest of the Infinity Stones. But his choice of words - namely the reference to a "whirlpool that soaks up all hope for life" - is reminiscent of a certain recording from the most recent Eternals trailer. Specifically, it's about the short shot, which takes place around the 28-second mark of the trailer, in which a land mass falls and falls into the thundering water of the sea.

All of this forces us to ask: is it possible that Thor was warned about the dissenters in 2015?

The Arrival of the Deviants - In Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor's vision is presented as a warning of what will come if Thanos makes his inevitable assault on Earth. Thor interprets it that way, and understandably Marvel fans too. However, given the similarities between the aforementioned moments in Age of Ultron and Eternals, it's worth considering the possibility that the threats teased in Thor's vision aren't just Ultron, the Infinity Stones, and Thanos.

Not only are the two catastrophic moments shown in the Eternals trailer strongly reminiscent of Thor's vision, but it also makes sense that the god of thunder was warned of the deviants, given what we currently know about them.

This means; The latest trailer for Eternals presents the Deviants as a legitimately apocalyptic, planetary threat - a group of beings so powerful that their arrival will force the Eternals to emerge from their hiding place for the first time in centuries. Suppose they are as dangerous as Marvel would have us believe, that the deviants will be included in a vision about the Infinity Stones, Ultron and Thanos.

Eternals 'final trailer also goes out of its way to describe the "appearance" of the deviants on Earth as a direct result of the Avengers' use of the Infinity Stones to bring back to life half the population of the universe. With this in mind, it certainly does not seem unlikely that Thor may have been warned about the deviants during the same vision in which he was made aware of the Infinity Stones. That seems especially likely if the use of the Infinity Stones in Avengers: Endgame really does cause the Deviants to arrive in Eternals.

The Inverse Analysis — Avengers: Endgame proved, once and for all, just how good Marvel Studios is at setting up story points only to reveal the pay-offs to those narrative seeds years later. So it’s definitely possible that this presumed connection between Eternals and Avengers: Age of Ultron was done intentionally. It’s also — and this is worth saying — possible that it’s just a coincidence.

Hopefully, we’ll get to find out which one it really is when Eternals hits the big screen in just a few short months.
