At the end of “Eternals’ it says, as with almost every MCU film: ‘Eternals wants return”, i.e. “The Eternals will return”. But it didn’t seem so certain until now: Because “Eternals’ earned – also due to the corona pandemic – significantly less money than most of the previous films and is also the MCU film with the weakest critical cut. Assumptions quickly made the rounds that the Eternals instead not as a group in “Eternals 2” but as individual characters in other films and series. but maybe there is “Eternals 2” is actually already in the works.
At least that’s what Patton Oswalt claimed during an appearance in the Today show, which you can see here. Oswalt plays the character Pip the Troll in the MCU, who appears in the mid-credit scene of “Eternals’ is seen alongside Harry Styles’ Eros aka Starfox. “They announced that there was a ‘Eternals’The sequel will be Chloé Zhao [die Regisseurin des ersten Films] will stage. So hopefully there will be more of Starfox and Pip to see,” Oswalt said.
Announced is “Eternals 2” but by no means – and that’s despite the fact that Marvel just announced and dated numerous upcoming films (including the mega-blockbusters “Avengers 5: The Kang Dynasty” and “Avengers 6: Secret Wars”).
So there are two possibilities: Either the announcement of “Eternals 2” will remain a secret for the time beingwhich they wanted to save for the upcoming Disney D23 trade fair in September 2022 and which Oswalt has now accidentally leaked.
Or maybe Oswalt just messed something up and knowingly or unknowingly told nonsense. Because the previous rumors about the Eternals actually indicated, as mentioned at the beginning, that there shouldn’t be a direct sequel.
For example, one keeps hearing about a “Starfox” project — and that could actually be the project Oswalt is actually talking about here. Because of course Starfox and Pip would also return in a “Starfox” film or an “Eros” series and you could probably easily include the open cliffhangers from the end of “Eternals” dissolve.
Nor should the (alleged) announcement of “Eternals 2” and the return of director Chloé Zhao with great caution. We might find out more details on the D23. The Marvel Panel will take place on September 10, 2022.
