Fans have spotted some rather striking similarities between Marvel Studios’ Eternals and Zack Snyder’s Justice League and they’ve been quick to point them out on Twitter.
Marvel released the second trailer for Eternals yesterday, and I thought it would an awful lot better than the first one.
I genuinely think this is going to be a good movie.
However, some fans have noticed something rather interesting about the movie – it looks a lot like Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
Now, it’s true that Eternals is something of a superhero team-up movie – like Justice League.
However, I do have to say that there is a key difference – in Eternals, they’re all robots.
That’s not the case with Justice League.
But here’s what some fans had to say on the matter.

Let's face it. In Man of Steel, Zack Snyder revolutionized how flight, super strength, and super speed were portrayed. Modern superhero movies are going to borrow from that because it just WORKS. So… Icarus and Superman are filmed similarly, but that's just the impact Zack has.

I will say that many of the Ikarus scenes in the trailer are reminiscent of Zack Snyder’s Superman scenes in Man Of Steel.
It also looks like the movie has a sort of Justice League tone about it.
I think this is the closest Marvel will ever come to making a movie like Justice League.
The film obviously still has that Marvel humour to it.
However, it feels a whole lot darker and it seems as though the film’s plot is relatively close to that of Justice League.
A menacing alien force (the Deviants) are coming to invade Earth and a team of superheroes (the Eternals) have to come together to stop them.
