Eternals

Trivia: After 13 years and 26 films, this is the first movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to receive a "rotten" rating from Rotten Tomatoes upon release. This is somewhat ironic given that there were reports that Marvel considered it the best film they had made yet, and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige felt it could be a nominee for Best Picture at the Oscars, particularly as its director ChloƩ Zhao had recently won the Best Director Oscar for Nomadland, which also won Best Picture.

Trivia: SPOILER: According to director ChloƩ Zhao, the offscreen character who speaks to Dane Whitman in the post-credits scene is none other than Blade, who is played by Mahershala Ali.

Trivia: Do not leave after the credits roll! Dane Whitman opens at an ancient looking box and pulls out a sword called the Ebony Blade. I bet you that is what he was going to tell his girlfriend Sersi in the park at the end of the movie but did not get a chance.

Trivia: Richard Madden and Kit Harington previously co-starred in Game of Thrones. When their respective characters of Robb Stark and Jon Snow bid farewell to each other, Robb Stark said to Jon Snow "Next time I see you, you'll be in all black." They are reunited onscreen in this film for the first time since Game of Thrones. Harington plays Dane Whitman, who in the comics is one of several men in his bloodline to go by the codename Black Knight, due to his all black armor.

Trivia: SPOILER: When Thena is practising with Excalibur, Sprite asks her if it's the Ebony Blade. The Ebony Blade is actually the sword that Dane Whitman unboxes in the post-credits scene.

Trivia: Portrayed as women in the film, in the comics, Ajak and Makkari are men. Similarly, Sprite, who is physically an adolescent girl in the film, has predominantly been a male in the comics, sometimes being female.

Trivia: SPOILER: The mid-credits scene sees the debut of Eros, brother of Thanos, who reveals himself to also be an Eternal. The reason why Thanos looks so different from his human-looking brother is because Thanos carries the Deviant gene.

Factual error: Druig leads several warriors outside Tenochtitlan as it was sacked by the Spanish conquistadores, and they live peacefully in the nearby forest, for 500 years. The forest is of course the virgin Amazon forest, as captions say. Small problem; Tenochtitlan was in Central Mexico.

Suggested correction: It never says that the people who live with Druig in the Amazon in the present day are descendants of the people from Tenochtitlan. Nor does it ever say that the forest outside Tenochtitlan is the Amazon. He's probably been moving around for the last five centuries just as the other Eternals have.

Never ever? He literally says "Do you remember this forest? Beautiful. It's the last place we all lived together. I've protected these people for 20 generations." They split after their argument during the sack of the town. If their base of operations exterminating the mutant space dogs in Mexico was in the Amazon forest, their logistic could use some work.

Just because the last time they fought together was in Tenochtitlan doesn't mean that was the last time they lived together. They may have spent some time living peacefully in the Amazon before moving north to do their business in Tenochtitlan. And just because he's protected the people for twenty generations doesn't mean they're descendants of the people from Tenochtitlan. He may have found them later. We don't know every detail of the Eternals' history. You're just making assumptions.

Necrothesp

You are assuming the presence of a third party stranded for 500 years that the movie never showed before, different from the people that he led out of the city and that we have then to postulate he let go, in a location far off from the one of their last encounter. It's an assumption on entirely new details that you had to make up. My only assumption is to think that what is shown in the movie had purpose and fits, and someone just borked a caption.

I noticed the same problem, the scene indicates the location as "Amazon" (it could be any of the Spanish speaking countries that have part of this forest), but then, Druig comes with the affirmation you pointed. It's obviously a geographical inaccuracy.
