There were various factors pointing towards there being a chance for another of Jim Starlin’s creations to show up in Avengers 4 next year. Starlin was the man who originally created Thanos for Marvel and was also the creator of the other Eternals. Partly, this rumor was due to Marvel saying they were developing The Eternals and partly due to Jim Starlin saying he hopes to have three ‘created by’ credits in Avengers 4 after having two in Avengers: Infinity War.

However, the man who created Thanos has taken to social media to clarify what he said in that initial Q & A. Now Starlin is saying that his comments were taken out of context slightly by the original source.

Here is what Jim Starlin said on Facebook.

“Okay, this has gone on long enough. Last month at a con in Puerto Rico it came up in the Q&A that I received two credits in the Avengers The Infinity War. I then kidded that I was going to shoot for three in the next movie. I never said another of my characters is going to be appearing in it as has been widely reported since then. That was a mistake on the original reporter’s part.”

While this in no way rules out there being another Eternal showing up in Avengers 4, it does slightly change the meaning behind Starlin’s initial comments as more of a wish, rather than a fact. Of course, it could also be Starlin trying to tone down what he said for fear of spoilers or fear of the Marvel NDA hammer? As you can see in the related section below, we have also heard some rumor of Starlin creation Kronos showing up in Avengers 4. At this point, anything is still fair game for the sequel to the game-changing Avengers: Infinity War.
