has arrived in , with Oscar-winning director s film beats on Wednesday. Dipping into Marvel’s cosmic comic book novels, it introduces who have lived quietly on earth for centuries, fought against the deadly deviants and helped human civilization to advance.
The film takes place after dive into the scenes after credits, if you want to jump directly to them., when billions of missing people returned after five years of absence and the world suddenly feels quite crowded. We will also have a separate article
It’s time to get into the cosmic end, here comes SPOILERS.
Their true purpose
This is complicated, so let’s take a look at the revelations earlier in the film to understand it all. If you just want to know what happens at the end, scroll straight down to the “Origin Averted” section.
After the wise leader Ajak (Salma Hayek) is killed by the deviants, Sersi (Gemma Chan) is elevated to the role of Prime Eternal and the heavenly Arishem reveals the true character of the group’s mission on earth in one of the film’s somewhat overwhelming action dumps. .
New celestial bodies – ancient, god-like beings with incredible matter and energy-manipulating ability – are created by sowing planets and allowing life to flourish in that world. The energy of living beings allows the celestial to grow and finally break out of its planetary shells, a moment known as its origin. That world is destroyed in the process, which seems a bit rude.
The concept was used in, which takes place in a nasty dystopian version of Marvel Universe.
Deviants were originally sent to planets to kill predators and allow life to spread so that there would be enough energy for the celestial bodies to emerge, but they went out of control and were slaughtered indiscriminately.
The Eternals believe they are from the Olympia world, but they are actually synthetic creatures created by the celestials at World-Forge and sent to obliterate the deviants (meaning that one creation was sent to stop another). Their memories are obliterated after each Emergence, and they are sent off to a new planet to do everything again.
Thena (Angelina Jolie) occasionally loses control and tries to kill allies because she suffers from Mahd Wy’ry (pronounced “crazy tired”), a disease caused by the return of obliterated memories. Like any computer, it is difficult to delete data completely.
The origin of the earth
Earth’s Eternals were responsible for ensuring that the celestial Tiamuten could grow deep into the earth’s crust and erupt when the time came, but Prime Eternal Ajak was the only one aware of their true mission. She revealed it to Second Commander Icarus (Richard Madden), who believes that her desire to stop the rise of Tiamut is a betrayal of their mission and will prevent the birth of billions of beings through the next heavenly sowing process.
Herein lies the film’s connection to Avengers: Endgame – Thano’s Snap delayed its emergence because it erased much of the life energy that Tiamut would have used. When the Hulk took back the lost half of the population, it returned energy and the heavenly prepared for its rise.
Which makes you wonder why the Celestials did not order the Eternals to help in the battle against Thanos, as the villain’s intrigue disrupted their plans.
Ajax’s team thought they had wiped out all the deviants on earth, but Icarus discovered some that had frozen in ice and passed by unnoticed. The beasts thawed and Icarus killed his boss by pushing her into their lair.
The deviant leader Kro stole Ajax’s healing powers when he killed her, and decided that he wanted to take the rest of the Eternal’s abilities (yum yum). He does it with Gilgamesh and almost gets Thena towards the end of the film, but she manages to cut him up at the last second.
If the Deviants’ plotline feels like a non-sequitur, it’s because they served as little more than a distraction for the other Eternals while Ikarus makes sure the Emergency can happen.

Emergencies were averted
After discovering that Ikarus is responsible for Ajax’s death, Sersi, Thena, Kingo, Makkari,and Phastos decides to stop the emergence. But the eternally young Sprite (Lia McHugh) decides to go with Ikarus because she has liked him for centuries.
Ikarus and Sprite try to protect Tiamut when he appears in the Indian Ocean, but are defeated by his former teammates. Sersi leads her allies in forming a Unimind – where an Eternal’s abilities are overcharged by drawing on the group’s energy – and her material transmutation power is twisted up to 11. Tiamut, whose power was also drawn into Unimind, freezes in the middle of Origin.
This apparently kills him and saves the earth, but it is a giant dead celestial body protruding from the sea (which will be a great backdrop for tourist selfies).
A sunny passing
Emotionally, after being drawn into Unimind, a tearful Ikarus tells Sersi that he is sad and flies into the sun – which seems like a pretty dramatic way to prove that his remorse is sincere. The treacherous Eternal seems to burn up when he reaches the star.
Sersi offers to use her temporarily engrossed powers to make Sprite human, which makes her grow old and have a family. The young look Eternal accepts, but she is not crazy about the idea of going to school as a normal child (school would be quite boring for someone who has already lived several lives). It also allows teenage actress Lia McHugh to return to the role, as the character may look older in future appearances.
Spread the truth
Then Makkari and Druig decide to track down Eternals on other planets, to reveal their origins and the fact that their mission will judge the inhabitants of their host world.
“The truth will set them free,” Makkari said before taking the team’s ships into the galaxy.
We will check with them again the scene of the film after credits, but the eternal who remain on earth have another problem …
A Celestial Arg
Sersei returns home to London and picks up with her human boyfriend Dane Whitman (Kit Harington). He prepares to tell her about his “complicated” family history, but is interrupted by the dramatic appearance of a heavenly one on earth.
Arishem removes Sersei, Phastos and Kingo from the earth and tells them that he is annoyed that they killed Tiamut but plans to spare their adopted world at the moment (which seems super nice of him). He will take a deep dive into our history by scanning their memories and then deciding if it’s worth surviving.
“And I will return, judging,” he says ominously.
It’s probably not good that a bunch of Sersei’s latest memories will be about her adventures on social media – we are not exactly the best.
What it means
Given the complexity of the film’s plot, the resolution seems quite straightforward – it mostly served to pose Celestials as a major threat to. A sequel is likely to see the Eternals free their allies from Arishem on World-Forge (this line of action can also be developed in )
Despite Makkaris’ belief that other Eternals will reject their mission once they know the truth, it may not be that simple. Like Ikarus, they may think that the countless trillions of lives created by Celestial’s sowing process outweigh the billions wiped out by the emergence.
It’s a pretty fascinating moral mystery. Kingo believed in the mission that Celestials gave them, but decided to remain loyal to his friends instead of joining the murderous Ikarus. Wow, that would have been pretty devastating to watchget bad.
Although Ikarus seems to be self-inflicted, it is possible that he may return. In the series, Fallen Eternals is revived with the help of an activation chamber located in Antarctica – the character’s series equivalent was revived in this way in the author Kieron Gillens.
