Work on pre-production for Marvel Studios’ next big franchise is still underway. New images have revealed construction on the set of an ancient city for next year’s Eternals.
It appears that they are still working on the construction of the replica city of Babylon, which has been spotted previously on previous set photos. Some new additions have been made to the set, including statues, which appear to be replicas from the palace of Sargon II, and a massive garden.

Babylon was the capital of ancient Persia, one of the world’s oldest empires. Persia had several gods, and it seems that the Eternals could be stand-ins for them or could potentially be mistaken for the deities. Unfortunately, no actors were on set, but it is exciting to learn some new details about the film.
Recently, we got our first look at the set of Eternals from images that features Angelina Jolie as Thena. The actress was spotted in a body of water while donning a stunning white dress. Speculation would lead one to believe those images feature Thena in Ancient Greece, which has been a rumored setting for the film.
