Eternals' Patton Oswalt Seemingly Announces a Sequel

Eternals’ Patton Oswalt Seemingly Announces a Sequel

Eternals actor Patton Oswalt has seemingly announced that a sequel to the 2021 Marvel Studios film is in the works, with Chloé Zhao set to return to the director’s chair.

During a recent appearance on The Today Show, Oswalt discussed Eternals’ mid-credits scene, in which he and Harry Styles appear as Pip the Troll and Eros/Starfox, respectively. “They have announced there’s going to be an Eternals sequel,” Oswalt said. “Chloé Zhao is going to direct it. So, hopefully there will be more adventures of Starfox and Pip.” Marvel Studios has, in fact, not announced an Eternals sequel as of yet, meaning Oswalt may have made the announcement prematurely, or is speculating based on his insider knowledge.

The third feature film released as part of Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Eternals premiered in theaters on Nov. 5, 2021. The film made $162 million globally over its opening weekend, which, at the time, marked the second-largest worldwide opening since the onset of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. When all was said and done, Eternals grossed $402.1 million worldwide. The film was met with mixed reviews, with audiences and critics divided on its bold new ideas for the MCU.

Directed by Zhao, Marvel Studios’ Eternals is based on the Marvel Comics race of the same name, originally created by the late, great Jack Kirby. The film stars Gemma Chan as Sersi, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Barry Keoghan as Druig, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, Kit Harington as Dane Whitman, Salma Hayek as Ajak and Angelina Jolie as Thena.

As previously mentioned, the film’s mid-credits scene also features Styles as Starfox and Oswalt as the voice of Pip. Eternals’ post-credits scene, meanwhile, features a voice cameo by Mahershala Ali as Eric Brooks/Blade. Ali is set to star in Marvel Studios’ upcoming Blade reboot film, which is scheduled to premiere in theaters on Nov. 3, 2023 as part of Phase Five of the MCU.

On that note, Marvel Studios unveiled its entire Phase Five slate at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, with absolutely no mention of an Eternals sequel. However, much of the Phase Six slate is still shrouded in mystery, with Marvel only announcing that it will begin with Fantastic Four and conclude with Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars. In other words, there’s still plenty of room.

While Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige made no direct mention of an Eternals sequel during his SDCC presentation, he did all but confirm the return of Starfox and Pip during an on-site interview with MTV News. “The adventures of Eros and Pip is something that is very exciting for us,” he said. Furthermore, the aforementioned Chan all but confirmed her own MCU return as Sersi this past January.
