For part of the team, this means being taken to God knows where by the chief celestial, Arishem. For others, it means traveling the galaxy in search of enlightening others for their struggle, and that is where they are Meet Thanos’ brother, Eros.
This is what happens in the movie. The Eternals remembers the Marvel Cinematic Universe and remains the same. However, Talking to the EmpireZhao explained that this was not always the end. “We actually had another really bleak ending. depressed. I didn’t hate it, because I’m used to sadder movies. “But I don’t think it went well with the fans,” she said. This end would have given eternity a portion of victory, and a heavenly portion of victory. “It was ending up with everyone back on the ship, brains erased and going to another planet, like Twilight Zone ” The Academy Award winning continues. “I remember when it turned black, everyone was like, ‘I don’t know what to do. “And also, it’s the MCU, and you want to be excited about what’s coming.” So basically Earth was saved, and the MCU still exists, but these main characters don’t remember any part of it.
Zhao also made it clear that changing endings in her films is not a new occurrence. “I’ve never made a movie where the ending was what I wrote! You find it in the edit,” she said. “Editing is a third of the filmmaking process, and when you show it to people, you find the ending. I don’t think I’ve made a single movie where the opening and ending stay the same with the script, just because the scenes are fluid during filming.” Yes, even in the MCU.
