The Marvel Cinematic Universe film is helmed by Oscar-winning director Chloé Zhao. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Chloé said, "I was very fortunate. I feel like I entered the MCU at a time when a wonderful story had just concluded, so it's a bit like we're on the frontier. There's a lot of desire to explore."
In a discussion with director Barry Jenkins for Variety, Chloé said, "I have been a fan of the MCU for the last decade. So, I put the word out there I wanted to make a Marvel movie, and the right project came to me. I just wanted to work with that team. Again, back to world-building. It is my favourite thing."
Besides Eternals, Marvel Studios has a packed line-up of films including Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, The Marvels, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3.
