“I think that there was a hoax website”: Eternals Star Kumail Nanjiani Claims Patton Oswalt Believed a Fake Website, Hints Sequel Might Never Happen

Eternals Star Kumail Nanjiani Claims Patton Oswalt Believed a Fake Website

Eternals was a memorable movie from Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Directed by Nomadland fame, Chloé Zhao did her best to bring the Eternals up to speed to the current public.

After failing hilariously and becoming one of the most hated movies in the MCU, Patton Oswalt accidentally let slip that a sequel is indeed here in the works. Kumail Nanjiani, much like his character Kingo, is here to save the day.

Eternals Sequel Mishap Cleared By Kumail Nanjiani

Months ago, when the wound of Eternals was still not old, Patton Oswalt had made a comment about the release of the ancient Avenger gang Eternals 2. The actor, who portrays the role of Pip the Troll, revealed that Marvel had already announced the movie! Refusing to speak any further on the matter, the interview had since then subsided but Kingo is here to save the people from confusion as Patton Oswalt allegedly fell victim to a fake website.

Talking to The Playlist, the Pakistani-American actor clarified that Eternals 2 is not in development nor has it been announced. The Silicon Valley actor stated that he thinks Patton Oswalt fell victim to one of those fake websites “where it’s like one letter off from the real one”. Here’s what Kumail Nanjiani told about any upcoming updates to the sequel to Eternals.

I don’t think Patton was right. I think that there was a hoax website – one of those where it’s like one letter off from the real one. They tweeted it, and it spread around and I think that’s what Patton saw.

The people were somehow relieved as the comments and tweets were filled with how bad the first movie was. As far as officiality is concerned, Eternals 2 is not in the making right now. But Marvel couldn’t leave their team in the MCU alone, can they?

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is now bigger than ever. Although it had its moments of failures (*cough* Thor: Love and Thunder *cough*), the people know that Eternals 2 will indeed be a reality in the near future.

With a cliffhanger ending for several characters, it is alleged that Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, and several others will be returning to the franchise soon. Kit Harrington, who portrayed the character of Black Knight in Eternals had only just developed his powers when the movie ended. With a cameo of Harry Styles as Eros, the brother of Thanos, this franchise is far from over. As for Chloé Zhao, there may be some change in the direction of the next movie but nothing can be said for sure as of now.

Eternals is available to stream on Disney+.
