The Marvel Cinematic Universe has started work on its next generation of movies to kick-start a new phase of the shared superhero universe. This new universe which will be devoid of the grandeur and magic of Tony Stark and Captain America, will entertain a new breed of heroes. One of the movies that will explore the cosmic aspect of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be the upcoming Eternals movie. Expected to absolutely decimate Box Office records when released, many core actors of the movie project are already head over heels with the Chloe Zhao directed venture. Eternals’ actor Kumail Nanjiani who will be playing the super human Kingo in the movie, claims that the scale of the movie left him starry-eyed and awestruck.
There has been tremendous speculation on the few details that the movie has managed to leak out to the general public. There is not much to talk about so the fans are growing impatient. One eager fan took to Twitter to ask the star about the Eternals movie and where it is headed. Kumail Nanjiani was quick to reply that he is “in the dark, too.” But he was quick to respond with the statement that the grandness of the movie was so much that it would leave him dizzy even though he visited the sets of the movie every day.

I know there isn’t much news yet! I’m in the dark too, trust me. I can’t wait for it, whenever it comes.

The Eternals movie was officially announced to be under development after Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed it back in 2018. The movie will be a part of the Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Overall, Eternals will be Marvel Studios’ 25th Entry for the MCU. It will take place right after the events of Avengers: Endgame, the monumental 2019 movie that changed the entire shared superhero universe.
