Marvel’s Eternals is currently deep in pre-production and sets are currently being built at Pinewood Studios in London. Now thanks to a recent Instagram post, we have our first look at a classic location from The Eternals comic.
The post initially made by Bespin Bulletin believed the sets to be from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker but after further inspection, it was discovered this was not the case. The set is that of an Aztec temple which Geeks WorldWide pointed out is from the original Jack Kirby run on 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.
This has been corroborated by a new post by Bespin Bulletin who discovered signage stating this set is being built for Eternals by Olympia Productions. As fans of the comic know this Aztec temple is from the opening of the comic where Doctor Damian, his daughter Margo, and a disguised Ikaris, explore the site. Here they discover this is the tomb of the Space Gods leading into the epic tale of The Eternals.
