Deleted scenes from Eternals show Sprite teaching Dane Whitman about Deviants and being nostalgic about the past.
Have you heard the good news? Marvel Studios’ Eternals is hitting Disney Plus tomorrow! Ahead of the film’s release on the streaming service, the studio has released two new deleted scenes from Chloe Zhao’s sci-fi epic. Already one of the longest films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s no surprise that a couple of scenes were scrapped from the project’s theatrical release.
The first scene takes place in the early minutes of the film. At the museum where Sersi and Dane Whitman work, Sprite is seen inspecting the fossil of what appears to be a dinosaur. Using her projection skills, we see that it’s actually a Deviant. Whitman approaches Spite, where she schools the future Black Knight about how Deviants are dinosaurs. She then goes on to reveal how the many artifacts in the museum and relics of the past are inherently tied to the various Eternals.
The second deleted scene is far more emotional in nature. In the snipped clip, Sprite and Makkari discuss their time in Babylon. Makkari briefly mentions how the people of Earth defeated Thanos though no new details about the character are revealed.
While both scenes do show off the rich history of the Eternals and their relationship with Earth, they definitely don’t add much weight to the epic. More deleted scenes will be released on Disney Plus when the film officially debuts tomorrow. Here’s hoping for more Kingo and Karun shenanigans.
Here is the synopsis for Chloe Zhao’s Eternals:
The story takes place across two time periods. One storyline is set in the past when they operated as a formidable team and a close family unit. The second storyline is in the present, when the group has fractured and split apart, content to live among humans, hiding in plain sight. The prevailing threat of the Deviants, which once again threatens the existence of mankind, means the Eternals need to put their differences aside and regroup.
Chloe Zhao directed Eternals from a script she co-wrote with Patrick Burleigh, Kaz Firpo, and Ryan Firpo. The cast of the Marvel Studios project includes Gemma Chan as Sersi, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Barry Keoghan as Druig, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, Kit Harington as Dane Whitman, Salma Hayek as Ajak, and Angelina Jolie as Thena.
Eternals will hit Disney Plus on January 12 and home media formats on February 15. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the future of the film’s characters, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content!
