Ikaris and Henry Cavill’s Superman have some things in common, most notably the ability to fly and shoot laser beams from their eyes. Marvel Studios is aware of this and has made a conscious effort to distinguish the Eternal from one of DC’s most iconic heroes. So Fastos’ son makes this comparison more than justifiable, and it’s the studio’s way of getting ahead of potential fan talk about similar superpowers. However, what makes this more interesting is the recognition that Man of Steel is a reality in the MCU. Marketing for an upcoming Marvel Studios movie has been picking up steam in recent days, pushing the November release of Phase 4 of the hit MCU. New trailers are unlikely to be released, but cutscenes and other snippets offer additional information on the highly anticipated blockbuster Eternals.
According to Gamebomb.ru, the film “The Eternals”, directed by Academy Award winner Chloe Zhao, will introduce 10 new superheroes to the MCU. The Eternals were created by the Celestials, an immortal race of cosmic gods, and sent to Earth to protect humanity from the Deviants. After centuries in full view, the heroes must reveal themselves in the upcoming film “The Eternals,” in connection with the impending threat.
