Eternals is in theaters now, bringing the Marvel Cinematic Universe to some trippy cosmic places after a yearlong pandemic-related delay. Oscar-winning director Chloé Zhao‘s movie establishes a new team of immortal heroes tasked with defending Earth from the deadly Deviants, and it includes a pair of post-credits scenes that will likely get you hyped for the MCU’s future. 

The movie takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame, which saw the Mad Titan Thanos defeated and billions of vanished people returned to Earth after five years. Our separate ending explainer dives into how that plays into Eternals, so let’s take a look at how the extra scenes hint at what’s coming next.

There’s only one direction you can go from there, and that’ll lead you into SPOILERS.


Visitor from Titan

The mid-credits scene brings us back to the Domo, the Eternals’ ship, as Thena, Makkari and Druig seek out their counterparts on other worlds to reveal the truth of their origins — that they’re synthetic beings created by the godlike Celestials and tasked with ensuring that the Emergence of Celestials from seeded worlds, dooming their host planet’s inhabitants. 

They wonder why their allies back on Earth haven’t been in touch and worry that the Celestial Arishem struck after they stopped Tiamut’s Emergence.

Those fears are confirmed by the arrival of extremely grandiose Eros (Harry Styles), “the defeater of Black Roger, Prince of Titan and Thanos’ brother,” who teleports on board with Pip the Troll (Patton Oswalt).

He informs them that their friends are in trouble, so their mission will have to wait.

Feels Like The First Time, a 1977 Foreigner song that sure sounds like it’s about sex but apparently isn’t, kicks in as the credits continue.

What does it mean?

The Eternals have a new ally, but he’ll probably be an insufferable narcissist.

Eros has worked with the Avengers over the years.

Marvel Comics

In the comics, Eros is an Eternal who uses the codename Starfox (not to be confused with the classic Nintendo game series) and first appeared in 1972. Unlike angry brother Thanos, he opted for a hedonistic lifestyle as he grew up on Titan.

Aside from the usual Eternal immortality, he has the power to psychically stimulate the pleasure centers of people’s brains — which means he can manipulate their emotions and make them aroused, еврочехлы на мебель каталог в красноярске цены euphoric or sedated.

The concept of consent gets hazy around someone like that, especially since Eros fancies himself a womanizer. His behavior apparently caught up to him in 2006 She-Hulk storyline where a married woman accused him of sexual assault.

It’s unlikely the family-friendly MCU will touch upon such a sensitive topic, so the nature of movie Eros’ powers may be tweaked or he might be depicted a little differently.

Pip the Troll made his comics debut in 1975 as a royal prince who got transformed into a troll after imbibing a little too much of their enchanted liquor. He became a sidekick to the godlike being Adam Warlock and gained teleportation powers.

He apparently has a cameo in the recently released Guardians of the Galaxy game (which isn’t part of the MCU canon) as well.

Adam has only made a brief appearance in the movies so far, in one of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2‘s many mid-credits scenes.  Ayesha — the enraged leader of the golden Sovereign — announces her plan to destroy the Guardians with new creation “Adam,” and we see a mysterious cocoon. 

Director James Gunn confirmed that Will Poulter will play Adam in the third Guardians of the Galaxy movie, which is due out May 5, 2023, and he’ll likely be an antagonist for the Guardians at first. The introduction of Pip suggests their paths will cross, and that the Eternals storyline will be a factor in that movie.
