Marvel's Eternals Deleted Scene Evokes the Avengers' Defeat of Thanos

Sprite (Lia McHugh) and Makkari (Lauren Ridloff) reminisce in a deleted scene​ from Marvel's Eternals. After the events of Avengers: Endgame, where Earth's mightiest heroes Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) to defeat the mad TitanThanos (Josh Brolin), the immortal Eternals are forced out of the shadows when an ancient enemy returns​. In a quiet moment between Sprite and Makkari outside the ruins of Babylon, the child-like Sprite casts an illusion to rebuild what she fondly remembers as the closest thing they've ever had to "a real home" on Earth. Watch the deleted scene (via Thrillist​) above. 

With the looming emergence of a birthed Celestial that could destroy the planet, the centuries-old Sprite asks Makkari of humans, "You still think they're worthy of being saved? After all the terrible things we've seen them do?"

"They defeated Thanos and saved half the universe," signs Makkari, "with little more than hope, perseverance, and their capacity to sacrifice themselves for those they love." Entitled "Nostalgia," the deleted scene is one of four included on the disc version releasing February 15:
