It’s been awhile since I talked about Eternals stuff, but Chloé Zhao has blessed me. In a recent interview, Chloé Zhao reveals there was a different ending for Eternals and it was a lot more bleak.
From Empire, here’s what Chloé Zhao said:
And we actually had another ending that is really bleak. Bleak. I didn’t hate it, because I’m used to films that are more melancholy. But I don’t think it went down well with audiences.
It used to end with everybody back on the ship, minds erased and just going on to another planet, like The Twilight Zone. I remember when it goes to black, everyone was like, “I don’t know what to do.” And also, it’s the MCU, and you want to be excited for what’s next.
I need to see this scene! When the film releases physically and digital, I hope that there’s a deleted scene showing the ending. I was like “How more bleak can this movie get?” But good thing that ending didn’t fly because it would’ve felt like the film was pointless in a way.
