Eternals Reveals the Truth About Dinosaurs in New Deleted Scene

Marvel Studios has released a new deleted scene from Eternals ahead of the film's streaming debut on Disney+ and video on demand. The new "Small Talk" scene sees Sprite (Lia McHugh) visiting the museum and having a conversation with Dane Whitman (Kit Harington). Though the conversation, on its surface, appears to be about dinosaurs (Deviants), Athena (Thena), and the illusions humanity chooses to believe in, it all ultimately comes back to Whitman's relationship with Sprite's "aunt," Sersi. Below, you can watch the deleted scene, which Marvel released via IGN. This scene follows another deleted scene that involves the Avengers and Thanos.

Those are just two deleted scenes included with the special features on Eternals' home media releases. The full list of special features includes these deleted scenes and other features:

Marvel Studios' Eternals introduces a new group of heroes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. These ancient aliens have lived on Earth in secret for thousands of years. Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, an unexpected tragedy forces them out of the shadows to reunite against humanity's most ancient enemy, the Deviants.

Despite Eternals having the lowest rating in the Marvel Cinematic Universe -- which doesn't seem to have fazed Zhao -- Marvel Studios is pushing the film for Academy Awards consideration. You can see the film for yourself in your home via streaming on January 12th.
