The ‘The Walking Dead’ star believes fans will see her ‘Eternals’ character once again in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

“The Walking Dead” star Lauren Ridloff believes there’s a chance we’ll see her favorite “Eternals” character back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe one day.

“Well, I hope so,” Ridloff said at the “TWD” series finale on the red carpet on Sunday. “I think so, but who knows? We’re all waiting.”

Despite the October 2021 film ending with the words “The Eternals Will Return,” there are no sequel or spin-off series currently appearing on Marvel’s current extended film and TV release calendar through 2026.

Despite being Marvel’s most critically panned release, and a low-grossing compared to other titles that gross $400 million worldwide, the film introduced some fan favorites, including Ridloff’s superhero, Makkari.

Fans quickly demanded to see more of Ridloff’s Makkari and Barry Keoghan’s Druig, who became their new favorite pairing due to their effortless chemistry.

In 2021, Ridloff told that some of McCarey’s scenes were cut from the final film.

“There were a lot of things that were removed, but that’s just not my scenes and my character,” Ridloff previously told Insider. “Some of my scenes were removed, which is impressive, but it was really nice to see some of the other scenes.”

Last time we saw Makkari, she, Druig, and Thena (Angelina Jolie) were greeted by Thanos’ apparent brother Eros (Harry Styles), hinting at a return to the franchise in the future.

Until Marvel comes knocking, Ridloff is busy with another project she’s passionate about.

“I am producing a TV series with Ava DuVernay and Joshua Jackson through Starz,” Ridloff teased of the upcoming untitled romantic drama that was announced earlier this spring.

According to Variety, the half-hour drama will follow “two polar opposites who intertwine in a love affair that turns their worlds — and the worlds of everyone around them — upside down.”

Ridloff isn’t the only “TWD” star who could return to the MCU.

Kylie Fleming, who played Judith in The Walking Dead, made a memorable appearance as young Sylvie in the Disney+ series Loki.

When asked on the TWD red carpet if we’ll see her return for a second season of the show, which reportedly finished filming in October, Fleming said, “That would be great. I love Marvel. I would if they asked me to.”

Currently, Fleming is lining up her next gig in an anticipated IF movie, which is most likely an acronym of its original title, Imaginary Friends, which stars Ryan Reynolds and is directed and written by John Krasinski.

“IF” has quite the cast. In addition to Reynolds, it also features Steve Carell, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Fiona Shaw. The film’s plot has been kept under wraps, but it looks like Fleming will interact with Reynolds quite a bit in it.

“It’s going to be me and Ryan. I’m so excited. It was so much fun,” said Fleming, adding, “John is absolutely amazing. I can’t wait for everyone to see it. It’s going to be so good.”
