Marvel's Eternals has officially received its title. The film was previously being called The Eternals but is now dropping "The" from its title, a point of questions for many as promotion of the film has been unclear, and it is officially dubbed Eternals. There is no subtitle or additional news about the film yet. However, with the title change being officially revealed by the studio as it also moved some release dates, both Black Widow and Eternals held their respective November and February dates. With these release dates in place, promotional material like photos and trailers for Eternals should be dropping any day now if the studio plans to keep them.
