Finishing a Marvel movie is awkward. On the one hand, there must be closure and growth for story and characters on hand. On the other hand, there must be enough space to move forward to continue the entire franchise. Every film does its best to balance those two things, usually with scenes after the loan, i Chloe Zhao Eternals it is no different. However, while the film was being made, the director tried to finish which did not completely separate the environment.
If you remember, the film explains that throughout history the Eternal go to the planet, make sure it is safe for a heavenly birth that sacrifices the entire planet to save many others, and then erase their memories before moving on to the next. However, this time these Eternals are saving the Earth from Heaven, retaining all their memories and being forced to deal with the consequences. For part of the team this means that the main Heavenly One, Arishem, will take him god knows where. For others, it means traveling the galaxy in a desire to enlighten other Eternals in their struggle, where they are meet Thanos’ brother Eros.
So that’s what happens in the movie. The Eternal remember and continue with Marvel’s pristine film universe. However, talking to the Empire, Zhao explained that this was not always the end. “We actually had another ending that was really gloomy. Dark. I didn’t hate it because I got used to movies that are more melancholic. But I don’t think it went well with the audience, “she said. This ending would give the Eternal a part of victory, and the Heaven part of victory. “It used to end up like everyone went back to the ship, erased minds and just went to another planet, like Twilight Zone”, the Oscars continue. “I remember when it turned black, everyone was like, ‘I don’t know what to do.’ And also, it’s an MCU and you want to be excited about what’s next. ” So the Earth was basically saved, the MCU still existed, but these key characters didn’t remember a single part.
Zhao also explained that changing endings in her films is not a new phenomenon. “I have never made a film that ends what I wrote! You will find it in editing, ”she said. “Editing is a third of the filming process, and when you show it to people, then you find the end. I don’t think I’ve made a single film in which the beginning and the end remain the same as the script, just because the scenes are fluid while we’re shooting. ” Yes, even in MCU.
What do you think about this version of the ending? Would it have worked overall for Marvel? Could it possibly have been better for these characters not to remember the events so they could be sidelined? Let us know what you think. Eternals arrives on Disney+ January 12.
