The Big Endgame Question That Will Be Answered In Marvel's Eternals

One of the most-anticipated upcoming films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is "Eternals." The rather mysterious project is directed by Oscar-winner Chloé Zhao and features the talents of Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, and Salma Hayek, to name a few. From the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con panel and other interviews with the director and cast, we've learned that "Eternals" will follow the group of ancient aliens that have been living on Earth for thousands of years.

When the teaser trailer dropped for the film back in May, we got a glimpse at the power of the Eternals. These are not your average superheroes, and we supposed they'd give the Avengers a serious run for their money. MCU fans had one major question when the trailer dropped, which caused a lot of discussion on social media. Whether this big question — which calls back to the events of "Avengers: Endgame" — was going to be answered was a mystery, but we now know we'll finally get an answer.

Why didn't the Eternals help in the fight against Thanos?

The teaser trailer for "Eternals" begged the question: Why didn't they intervene when Thanos snapped away half of all life? These are supposed to be some of the most powerful beings in the universe, and it seems like they easily could have jumped in and given "Avengers: Endgame" a much different outcome. They could have stopped Thanos before he ever snapped his fingers. They could have prevented him from even obtaining one stone. So, why didn't they?

Thankfully, we're going to get an answer to that question in the film. Producer Nate Moore caught up with Entertainment Weekly for a special on "Eternals" and confirmed what we had hoped. The outlet reported that we will definitely find out why the group of immortals didn't interfere in the fight against Thanos and suggested that it's because the Eternals "never interfere with human affairs." We expect to have a more extensive explanation in the film itself, and we're sure they have a solid reason for staying away. We won't find out, however, until "Eternals" lands in theaters on November 5.
