Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has not yet begun, but the chatter surrounding the next wave of films has been strong lately. It remains to be seen if the release dates of the films will stick, but fans are still hopeful about the future of the franchise.
One of the interesting additions to the vast franchise is Marvel’s Eternals.
The film was originally set to come this November, but the ongoing health crisis has pushed the release date to next February. Details of the plot are still kept under wraps, but the entry in Phase 4 already has a huge and stellar cast, much to the delight of many fans.
The film is reported to have received a slight title change, which is the removal of ‘the’ from the original title, The Eternals. And now, it appears that the film’s title was not the only production element that changed.
Marvel Entertainment officially unveiled an updated logo for Marvel’s Eternals. The reveal was also accompanied by a countdown timer to the film’s release next February:

A comparison between the two logos shows off a key difference in terms of the thickness of the font. The original logo has a thinner and darker font style while the updated logo features a thicker font style, highlighting the film’s title even more:

WHAT THIS MEANS
The difference between the logos is minimal, but it suggests that the film marketing efforts will soon begin. For example, the presence of a countdown timer, released on Marvel’s official website in February, indicates that the film’s release date will stick at this moment.
Another takeaway from this revelation is the debut of the film’s highly anticipated trailer. Fans are urging the release of concrete promotional material from Marvel Studios, and this development should strengthen those claims. The studio is mum about any official updates for their upcoming projects, but the marketing efforts of the first films seem to be gearing up soon.
The timing of the title change and the updated logo for Marvel’s Eternals is a bit interesting. Especially now that the first part of the DC FanDome (which has hosted some pretty big revelations about DC) ended last weekend. Marvel’s Eternals presents a compelling chance that the monumental franchise will be arriving soon.
