Patton Oswalt Reveals Unannounced Sequel For Eternals?

The Eternals actor Patton Oswalt seems to have accidentally revealed that a new sequel is in the works with director Chloé Zhao returning.

Marvel’s Eternals (2021) stood out for the wrong reasons to other MCU films. Rotten Tomatoes considers it the weakest of all the current MCU films. It was released at a bad period of time, smack in the middle of the pandemic. Not only that, even though the movie had an all star cast, somehow the film had a hard time showcasing the characters in the story. Nevertheless, it still did okay at the box office. In fact, it did slightly better than Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow.

Regardless of what you’d think of The Eternals, Marvel still is a master of creating hype for the MCU. And at the end of the film we see new characters; namely Starfox and Pip, played by Harry Styles and Patton Oswalt respectively.

Recently, in the Today Show, Patton Oswalt was being interviewed by Al Roker. Oswalt was casually talking about his role about being Pip and then suddenly he slipped.

Oswalt said on the show:

They have announced there’s going to be an Eternals sequel, Chloe Zhao is going to direct it. So hopefully there will be more adventures of Starfox and Pip.

One thing, there was no announcement for a sequel. We’ve seen a lot of things in the recent SDCC 2022 and there was nothing about an Eternals 2. So, we presume that Patton Oswalt accidently announced the continuation of the movie with their characters. It could be that the supposed official press release is for the upcoming D23. Maybe Oswalt didn’t get the fine print of the memo?

It’s also possible that this was just a mistake by Oswalt. But why would he say that a sequel is being made? Is he just excited about the possibility of it?

Info slip-ups aside, what is going to happen to the new Eternals movie now? The team is divided with the one in space with Thena meeting up with Pip and Starfox and the rest were the ones Arishem took with him into a singularity. The sequel most likely will feature the judgement based on the Eternals’ memories.

But what would Pip the Troll and Starfox’s roles in the second movie be? Any chances we can squeeze out other information from Oswalt?
