Comicbook.com reports that Eternals director Chloé Zhao confirmed to Fandango that her upcoming film has not one, but two post-credits scenes. Both are surprising and very important, so Marvel fans better stick around to watch them!
This news comes right as tickets for the film go on sale. The first movie clip was also released on the Internet and a featurette that teases the origins of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Zhao brings insight for utilizing her personal, Academy-Award winning directing style to the Cinematic Universe: “Well, I think Marvel Studios has always worked with filmmakers [who have] very distinct voices, and that’s why the films are different. But I think for this specific movie, what drew me to this movie and why they hired me, I think, is that the visual experience for this film must feel immersive enough for the audience to believe that these superhero characters have walked the earth for 7,000 years. So, to do that, there’s what I like to call an anthropological way of capturing things. The cameras are very grounded, and the movements are very natural. Shots are longer — we use wide angle lenses, and deep focus. Very similar to the thing you and I did together for Nomadland… it’s about giving the audience the space and the time to be able to explore what’s within the frame, and therefore come to their own conclusion of the relationship between the characters and the space they’re in.”
Eternals is a film that takes across film and conceptually, Zhao wanted to depict that sense of travel for audiences watching in their seats. As for the post-credits, remember there’s always more to discover in a Marvel movie after it ends! Stay tuned for November 5th, when Eternals opens in theaters.
