In Marvel Comics, the Eternals rarely interact with the Avengers and the other heroes of the Marvel Universe. They were created by Jack Kirby when he returned to the company in the mid-1970s, and as the writer, artist, and editor on his books, he was largely left to do whatever he wanted with the series. After Kirby’s Eternals was canceled, his storylines were resolved in a series of issues of The Mighty Thor, and in recent years the characters have appeared in other Marvel series. Mostly, though, they have existed as their own little corner of the Marvel Universe.

Not the Eternals movie. The film by Chloe Zhao takes places squarely in the center of Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and includes numerous references to the rest of the MCU, along with callbacks both to the long history of Eternals comics and other Marvel Comics as well. Below, we’ve collected 12 of the most fun Easter eggs, hidden references, and Marvel callbacks you might have missed in the movie. If you find others, you can always send them to us on Twitter or Facebook.
