Marvel Studios is currently building the Eternals set in London where set pics have hit social media offering a look at the ancient vibe for the movie.
Bespin Bulletin posted a few photos to Twitter, which is at the same location that Disney filmed Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, revealing what looks to be some sort of ancient temple being constructed by the crew.
“No movement at the lake in Black Park where #TheRiseOfSkywalker is supposed to film some reshoots but #Marvel’s #TheEternals set is coming along nicely,” the Twitter account tweeted Monday.

A previous batch of set pics from the same user also showed off the Jack Kirby influence in Eternals:
Exclusive: Minor ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ reshoots at Black Park update Once again I have another Black Park post. Not a whole lot has happened since last week but I’ve decided to keep you updated. As I’ve said in my previous Black Park posts, there’s three locations – Site one: used for the jungle shots of the Falcon and orange X-Wing last year, Site two: on a raised plateau with a wooden structure and Site three: Used for snow and swap planet scenes late 2018/early 2019. I’ll start at Site One. Site one is currently very busy with a lot of dumper trucks and JCB’s in action. It looked as if there were a lot of plants and ferns, dressing the site up for more of a jungle vibe. Couldn’t get pictures of this but in the one site one picture I’ve marked out some vegetation that isn’t native to Black Park, it looks like some tree’s. Also in a car park near there was an articulated trailer with a side door open, showing more greenery. Site Two. Last week a large wooden structure had started to be built. Yesterday a statue of sorts was put in place whilst more work on the wooden structure continued. The statue didn’t look very Star Wars to me. However I don’t know why but my initial thought last week after seeing the wooden structure was Yavin IV and after looking at Yavin IV decorations and statues from non-canon video games such as ‘The Old Republic’ there is some similarities. However as I stated a few weeks ago, a notice at Black Park refers to all three sites as one production but that could be because it’s all a Disney production. Site Two might pan out not to be Star Wars at all. Marvel’s next movie, ‘The Eternals’ begins production at Pinewood in September so there is a good chance it’s for that movie. — EDIT: I exclusively broke that the set was for ‘The Eternals’ in my follow up post which released mere hours later after receiving multiple pieces of evidences from sources. Some websites are currently using my images but not crediting me for the story.
Marvel’s Eternals gets released next year
Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios recently announced that Eternals will be a part of their Phase 4 plans which gets released following Black Widow and the Disney Plus The Falcon and the Winter Soldier series on November 6, 2020.
Details include that Angelina Jolie plays the leader of the Eternals with Thena; Richard Madden also stars as Icarus, with the flick also starring Kumail Nanjiani (Kingo), Lauren Ridloff (Makkari), Bryan Tyree Henry (Phastos), Salma Hayek (Ajak), Lia McHugh (Sprite), and Don Lee (Gilgamesh).
“It will be a story that will introduce you to this incredibly eclectic group of immortals, they’re the focus of the story,” Feige recently told CBS at Comic-Con. “It takes place in our universe — it takes place in the MCU, so you’ll hear mentions and stuff about it but yes, the Celestials go back a long way. We know a little bit about them. The Collector told us about Celestials, Knowhere is the severed head of a Celestial. Ego was involved with them, but we learn much more about their agenda and what they’ve been up to.”
Angelina Jolie is also excited about the flick as she recently said about her character Thena: “She’s a warrior. I’m going to have to work very hard to give the Marvel Cinematic Universe the Thena they deserve.”
The artist behind the recent Comic-Con concept art also revealed the poster on Instagram:
