Actor CONFIRMS ‘Eternals 2’ and says Chloe Zhao will direct; Did you like the first movie?
Despite the negative reviews and the average box office, ‘Eternal’ should earn a sequel.
During an appearance on the TODAY Show Tuesday, Patton Oswalt — who played Pip the Troll in the original — said a sequel to the film is in the works.
In addition, he suggested that the film will have the return of the Oscar winner. Chloe Zhao back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for another try.
“They’ve announced that there will be an Eternals sequel and Chloe Zhao will direct it,” Patton said on the morning show. “So hopefully there will be more Starfox and Pip adventures.” he stated.

And one of the post-credits scenes from ‘eternal‘, Starfox(Harry Styles), Thanos’ brother, is introduced to the MCU in the company of Pip the Troll, played by Patton Oswalt.
The duo invade the Domo ship, manned by Thena (Angelina Jolie), Druig (Barry Keoghan) and Makkari (Lauren Ridloff).
In the scene, the group discussed going back to Earth to find out what happened to Sersi (Gemma Chan), Kingo (Kumail Nanjiani) and Phastos (Brian Tyree Henry) after Arishem contacted them at the end of the plot.
And, as some rumors have already pointed out, Starfox and Pip could play an important role in the team’s next film, offering to help find the trio’s friends and other Eternals across the universe.
In an interview with Comic Book, Oswalt was asked about it and seemed quite hopeful about the idea of gaining more space in the MCU.
“I didn’t hear about these rumours. But it would be amazing if the sequel was about Starfox and Pip, because it seems to me that every time the Marvel brings in these secondary characters, everybody’s like, ‘Oh, who cares about these guys?’ But that’s where it all starts and they end up in the spotlight.”
“It was the same with ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’. I don’t know if you’ve seen the ‘Ms Marvel series, but it’s absolutely amazing. And I’m also a huge fan of both ‘Ant-Man’ movies. I think these characters are fantastic and very, very underrated. So if they made a movie about Starfox and Pip, that would be the story I would love to see.”
In any case, the arrival of Starfox and the indication that there are more Eternals scattered across the galaxy, are some of the twists that promise to shake the future of the MCU.
So, are you in the crowd to find out what we can expect from the MCU’s immortal characters?
please note that ‘Eternal‘ is now available on Disney+!
