No Darkseid Until 'JLA 2'?

A geeky side-note: it would be amazing if the Eternals, a really lesser-known part of the Marvel Universe, made it to the big screen before the New Gods, DC's pantheon of cosmic beings. Jack Kirby created both, but he created the Eternals only after his Fourth World Saga at DC had been canceled. Thanos himself is more or less a knock-off of Kirby's Darkseid, and The Eternals picked up a lot of the thematic concerns Kirby had in his New Gods books. My sources tell me not to expect Darkseid in the DC movieverse until Justice League 2, so that means a Guardians 2 in 2017 would definitely have the Eternals beating the New Gods to big screens.

From a creative standpoint, it makes sense to build up to Darkseid. Especially since you can use characters like Starro or Despero or Mongul or whoever else for heavies that the Justice League of America can punch around.

From a marketing standpoint though, I'm sick of people thinking Spider-Man invented the shirt rip, the Avengers pre-existed the JLA and the Avengers movie is the first shared superhero universe in live action. Looks like we can add the Eternals pre-existing the New Gods to the cascade of bullshit pop-wisdom that comprises the Internet.

*sigh*

^What he said.

Bur for how I feel about this, just look over at the other post about the next film moving to March 2016. My comments there would also pretty much parallel what you're saying here. Same premise, slightly different subject.
