Marvel’s Eternals is flying into theaters on November 5, 2021, and fans are excited to see the next movie in the franchise. After Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings performed well in theaters, shattering pandemic box office records, Disney and Marvel decided that it’s time to extend the theatrical release window for its feature films. While Eternals will show up on Disney+ in the near future, it won’t be as quickly as previous movies released in 2021.

According to the Walt Disney Company website, the theatrical release window for new movies will be a minimum of 45 days, which means the earliest fans could see Eternals on Disney+ is December 20.

Marvel’s Eternals will arrive on Disney+ eventually

Since Disney controls its releases, it’s very possible that they could extend the theatrical release beyond 45 days if the movie continues to perform well at the box office.

Then again, given the crowded box office as the holidays approach it’s more likely that they will stick to the 45 day release plan to capitalize on kids and families being home for holiday vacations.

Like Guardians of the Galaxy, Eternals is a new story with characters that aren’t as widely known as Iron Man or Captain America but for comic book fans their arrival marks a key moment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Eternals are a group of heroes who arrived on earth in ancient times and defended it from the monstrous Deviants who threatened the planet and its young civilizations. Given their ability to defeat these god-like Deviants, the movie has to establish why they didn’t step in when Thanos snapped his fingers and wiped out half of the universe’s population.

dark. Next. When is Shang-Chi streaming free on Disney+?

With no new Marvel movies in 2020, it feels like we’ve been going through a big drought and things are starting to get rolling again. Just don’t plan on seeing Eternals on Disney+ right away. It could be a while.
