Eternals End Credits Scenes Explained
How many Eternals end credits scenes are there?
The Eternals of Marvel Studios hastwo end credits scenes.
The opening scene takes place mid-credits and features the Eternals aboard the ship Domo meeting a very special new character and his partner.
The second scene focuses on the human Dane Whitman (Kit Harington) as he decides to go all out for his love Sersi (Gemma Chan).
Both are looking to create important new stories for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Eternals mid-credits scene: Harry Styles is Eros/Starfox
The first end-credits scene catches up with Druig (Barry Keoghan), Makkari (Lauren Ridfloff) and Thena (Angelina Jolie) on the Eternals' ship, The Domo, which they set off on at the end of the film to tell him about it. to other Eternals. about what they found out (i.e. they were all helping birth celestial babies, not protecting planets).
However, after some time without contact with Earth, they realized something was wrong with their fellow Eternals. Correctly deducing that their Celestial boss, Arishem (David Kaye), had kidnapped Sersi, Sprite, Kingo, and Phastos after thwarting their plans, choose to "go back", until they are surprised by the arrival of an unknown face.
Specifically, it is the face of Pip the Troll, who announces the arrival of his master Eros, described as the "Royal Prince of Titan", "Star Fox of the mysterious planet" and "Brother of Thanos", among other things.

To us, however, he will always be known as Harry Styles, whose surprise arrival in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was leaked at early press screenings.
Either way, he's here to help the Eternals. "Pip and I are here to help," he tells the stunned trio of Eternals. “Your friends are in trouble. And we know where to find them.
Eros has a long history in the comics,which you can read about here, but in that context, it sounds like he's there to set up an Eternals sequel, or at least tease a few more MCU appearances for Styles.
After all, Eros has a (often romantic) history with many Marvel heroes and even joined the Avengers in the comics, so he could show up in many places in the future.
Escena post-créditos de The Eternals: The Black Knight and the Ebony Blade
The second teaser follows Sersi's (Gemma Chan) human boyfriend, Dane Whitman, who also responds to his sudden kidnapping by Arishem.
In his office, we see Dane preparing to open a mysterious box, emblazoned with his family crest.
“You can do this… you can do this,” he tells himself, before opening it to reveal a wrapped sword.
But this isn't just any sword: this particular weapon comes with its own motto ("Death is my reward") and a habit of whispering nasty little words when it's opened, a bit like the One Ring.
"Sorry, I have to try," Dane says, reaching for the sheet, only to be interrupted by another voice.
"Are you sure you're ready for this, Mr. Whitman?" says an unseen American man before the scene cuts to black.
Who is the voice in the post-credits scene of The Eternals?
The mysterious voice in the Eternals post-credits scene isMahershala Ali as Blade.
Director Chloe Zhao has since shockingly confirmed that this voice belongs to none other thanvampire hunter sword, whose solo film (starring double Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali) was announced a few years ago (acting as a remake of the Wesley Snipes classic).
Zhao's speechEmpire:"I have to say, in the short time I've had with Mahershala, I can't wait for the Blade movie to come out. It's going to be epic."
In addition to a love of...blades...it's unclear what Blade's interest is here, although in the comics he and Dane are part of a superhero team called MI:13.
More explicitly, this scene sets up Dane's transformation into his comic book alter ego,the black knight,a superhero who has appeared sporadically over the years.
In the comics, Dane is often the wielder of the Ebony Blade, a family heirloom that deflects magic and protects its wielder from death. Unfortunately, he also corrupts those who keep him with feelings of bloodlust and violence, making him a dangerous weapon for anyone to use for long.
(Notably, Ebony Blade's name is verified early in the film when Thena is playing with Excalibur; in the comics, they both come from the wizard Merlin, but have vastly different power sets.)
In that context, the second post-credits scene makes a lot more sense. Clearly, Dane intends to try to rescue Sersi by playing the only card he knows, binding himself to the power of the Ebony Blade. He's nervous because he knows what this could (or will) cost, but willing to try and save his girlfriend anyway.
Mentions of his difficult uncle (whom Sersi encourages him to make peace with) are also drawn from the comics, where Whitman's uncle Nathan Garrett was known as a supervillain also called the Black Knight (he was the first, in reality). .
Presumably, we'll see the other shoe drop in a future Marvel movie when Dane becomes the Black Knight, though whether that will be in an Eternals movie or some other project (maybe the Blade movie?) remains to be seen.
Either way, Game of Thrones fans might not regret seeing Kit Harington dressed in black, wielding a special sword, and helping someone kill undead warriors again.
