We’re terribly excited to see how Marvel Studios and director Chloe Zhao tackle Jack Kirby’s The Eternals and we have a production update to share. HN Entertainment has learned that Marvel Studios hopes to get cameras rolling for The Eternals on September 16th. We can also confirm the previous reporting from ThatHashtagShow that they are indeed shooting in London, England.
UPDATE: DiscussingFilm has an update that suggests filming could be starting a week earlier than our date on September 9th with production wrapping in January.

While we previously confirmed that Black Widow is shooting at Pinewood Studios UK this summer, we’re currently not 100% if The Eternals will also use that same stage space, but the likelihood is very good given the scale expected for the film and connection to Angelia Jolie’s Maleficent movies. Angelina Jolie, who is reportedly attached for a lead role in the comic book flick (according to a recent report by TheHollywoodReporter) recently shot Disney’s Maleficent: Mistress of Evil at Pinewood Studios UK last year along with the first installment back in 2012.
Other Marvel Studios productions that have shot at the Pinewood facility include Guardians of The Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Doctor Strange, and Captain America: The First Avenger. Disney uses them often as well shooting Rogue One, Solo, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Star Wars: Episode IX, Dumbo, Cinderella, and Mary Poppins Returns.
Sony’s own Marvel flick Morbius is currently using the production space as well.
A release date for The Eternals hasn’t been made official by Marvel but nabbing the November 6th, 2020 date Disney previously made public for a Marvel Studios film is a good bet to make.
