This is reminiscent of the Joker-related attacker from the premiere week of The Dark Knight Rises back in 2012.

"The Eternals" challenges God

...super-producer Kevin Feige — having usurped every screen on Earth and reshaped the global entertainment landscape in his own image — merely straightened his baseball cap and announced that it was time to begin the next phase of his crusade. He knew there were more planets to rule, more parallel dimensions to explore, and more revenue streams for Disney shareholders to tap dry. Most of all, Feige knew that it wasn’t enough to dominate the creative arts; if the Marvel brand were to achieve its rightful place in the hearts and minds of all humanity, it would have to unseat the Creator themselves.

...In other words, Marvel has made a “Dune”-sized, “Dune”-length, and almost “Dune”-portentous superhero movie about literally confronting God.

This reminds me of Billy Zane taking a look at the Titanic (mostly CGI, but a real prop built on a huge scale) from the dock from an early scene in James Cameron's film, and he says "God himself could not sink this ship."
