The Eternals star Salma Hayek has teased that reshoots for the Marvel Studios film are happening soon.
Many Marvel Studios productions like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, and Shang-Chi were in the middle of filming before the worldwide pandemic put everything on hold. This also caused a shift in Marvel Studios’ slate with Black Widow taking The Eternals‘ November spot and the latter moving to February 2021.
Before the pandemic, The Eternals wrapped up filming in the United Kingdom. However, since reshoots are a standard procedure for Marvel Studios films, it’s expected that The Eternals would try to get them in once it was safe for productions to do so before its new release date. It was also recently revealed that Jurassic World: Dominion would be among the first films to restart production in the United Kingdom after the government signed off on new safety rules. It now looks like The Eternals might be heading back for reshoots based on a recent Instagram post from Salma Hayek.
