‘The Walking Dead’ star thinks fans will get to see her ‘Eternals’ character again in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

  • “The Walking Dead” star Lauren Ridloff thinks we’ll see Makkari again in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  • Ridloff told Insider that she hopes to return to the MCU as her “Eternals” speedster.
  • Additionally, Cailey Fleming (“Loki”) told us she’d love to be back in the MCU.

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

“Well, I hope so,” Ridloff told Insider on the “TWD” series finale red carpet on Sunday. “I would think so, but who knows? We are all waiting.”

Despite the October 2021 film ending with the words “the ‘Eternals’ will return,” no sequel or spin-off series currently appears on Marvel’s current lengthy TV and film release calendar through 2026

Though the film is Marvel’s most panned release, and a low grosser compared to other titles at $400 million worldwide, the movie introduced some breakout fan favorites, including Ridloff’s superhero, Makkari.

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

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

Makkari and Druig were only on screen together for a few scenes, but the chemistry between the two was undeniably pure.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cailey Fleming, who played Judith on “The Walking Dead,” made a memorable appearance as young Sylvie on Disney+’s “Loki” series.

When asked on the “TWD” red carpet whether or not we may see her return on the show’s second season, which reportedly finished filming in October, Fleming said, “That would be fantastic. I love Marvel. I would do it if they asked me.”

At the moment, Fleming has her next gig lined up in an anticipated movie “IF,” likely an acronym for 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 includes Steve Carell, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Fiona Shaw. The movie’s plot has been kept under wraps, but it sounds like Fleming will interact with Reynolds a bit in it. 

“It’ll be me and Ryan. I’m so excited. It’s been so much fun,” Fleming said, adding, “John is absolutely incredible. I can’t wait for everybody to see it. It’s gonna be so good.”
