Eternals vs Captain Marvel: MCU producer says who’s more powerful

Nate Moore, VP of Marvel Studios, talks about if Captain Marvel is more powerful than the Eternals. Brie Larson’s Marvel Cinematic Universe superhero was launched in her own 2019 film and rapidly rose to become one of the Avengers’ most powerful members.

The next MCU film, Eternals, directed by Chloé Zhao, is set to hit theatres on November 5th.

Fans have been compelled to compare superhero teams’ relative strength levels for as long as they have existed, Putting them against each other in hypothetical clashes to see who would win.

Captain Marvel’s history exposed the Tesseract (a.k.a. the Space Stone) as the direct source of her powers, instantly establishing her as a force to be reckoned with when she joined the MCU.

Larson’s superhero ended up becoming a new MCU baseline by which all future additions may be compared as debates raged over whether she could single-handedly beat Thanos in Endgame.

Producer Moore was asked to compare Angelina Jolie’s Thena to Captain Marvel at a press visit to the Eternals set attended by SR, and he admitted that it’s a difficult task for any warrior.

He described the fighter Eternal as Captain America with cosmic abilities, so she shouldn’t be written off right away, but the producers didn’t want the characters to be too godlike.

Even the totally human members of the Avengers would undoubtedly be able to hold their own:

I mean, when Captain Marvel goes binary, that is tough, but it would be as if Captain America-

– who I would argue is probably the best physical fighter– was powered by cosmic weapons, like, she’s going to be a problem, but again, Captain Marvel going binary, that’s tough.

[…] I mean, look, they’re obviously stronger than humans. I think you look at our amazing heroes, like Hawkeye and Black Widow wouldn’t have a problem.

We didn’t want them to be too godlike because I do think you run the risk of them being less relatable. And I guess Thor’s managed that pretty well.

But we don’t necessarily have a ranking system.

We do think they occupy their own pocket and I do think down the line, if and when they were to intersect with other characters…

that’s a fun thing to investigate.

Because the Eternals were created by the Celestials, mysterious creatures that have primarily existed on the films’ peripheral so far, fans have reason to wonder where they fit into the MCU’s power rankings.

The superhero team was dispatched to Earth to guard humanity against their counterparts, the Deviants, and were given stringent orders not to assist in battles that were not within their scope – regulations so strict that they did not participate in Thanos’ battle.

With that problem mentioned directly in the Eternals teaser, fans are understandably speculating if they might have changed the outcome in Avengers: Infinity War and if they will become more involved in the MCU’s future.

How Long Would It Take To Watch All Of The MCU Movies?

While Moore makes it sound like the Eternals aren’t beyond human superheroes’ skills, viewers may be wary of that notion.

Earth must be unable to defend itself against the Deviants for them to have a purpose to exist, and the Avengers include some extremely powerful individuals among their ranks.

The Eternals producer did state that the film’s new heroes work in their own specialty, so it’s possible that when the film comes out in November, audiences may discover more about the exact nature of their skills.
