Marvel Studios is Developing the New Franchise THE ETERNALS and Writers Have Reportedly Been Hired

Marvel Studios has yet to officially announce any new franchises in the post- AVENGERS 4 era of the Marvel Cinematic Universe even though one has been confirmed to be in development by studio head Kevin Feige to TheWrap.

“‘Eternals’ is one of many many many things that we are actively beginning to have creative discussions about,” Feige said, “to see if we believe in them enough to put them on a slate.”

Also, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel Studios has hired two writers for said new franchise as Matthew and Ryan Firpo will pen the script for THE ETERNALS. The roster of THE ETERNALS is unknown until there's a script.

This new addition will continue to expand the cosmic side of the MCU which has grown larger with films including: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2, THOR: RAGNAROK, and AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR.

In the comics, THE ETERNALS are basically humans who have been given superpowers and near-immortality by the cosmic entities called the Celestial. In fact, a Celestial has already been introduced in the MCU in form of Star-Lord's father, Ego, played by actor Kurt Russell. (Star-Lord is half-Celestial.)
