Marvel Is About To Make The Avengers Unnecessary
The arrival of the Eternals could make the Avengers unnecessary in the MCU.
In less than a month, Marvel Studios is debuting a brand new superhero team through Academy Award-winner Chloé Zhao's much-anticipated blockbuster, Eternals.
MCU's main Eternals team is composed of 10 heroes, and Marvel Studios assembled a star-studded cast to play them.
Smart Hulk's (Mark Ruffalo) reverse snap in Avengers: Endgame inadvertently kicked off the mysterious Emergence, forcing the team to band back together.
This is good news for the MCU as it means that they can fully explore the characters moving forward, but not so much for the Avengers.
The franchise's premiere superhero team is dubbed Earth's Mightiest Heroes, although admittedly the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame effectively made them galactic heroes.
When the Eternals finally emerge from hiding, they can openly operate as the protector of humans, essentially taking over as Earth's go-to superhero team.
This makes the Avengers unnecessary since the Eternals, with their various powers, could be more effective in the same job primarily because the cosmic beings are more powerful.
There's an argument that if the Eternals had revealed themselves from the beginning, the Avengers may have not even assembled at all.
Inevitably, the Avengers and Eternals will cross paths in the MCU.
While the cosmic beings know Earth's Mightiest Heroes, as revealed in the trailers for Zhao's movie, the Avengers are clueless about the other's existence.
For what it's worth, it's currently uncertain who is the active Avengers on the heels of the Infinity Saga as each potential member is currently busy with their own adventures.
