Entertainment Desk September 09, 2020

Actor Kumail Nanijiani, who will play a Bollywood superhero in Marvel’s upcoming film, Eternals, has said that it is the ‘most exciting, fun, epic, thrilling, hilarious and moving project’ that he has ever been a part of.

In a recent tweet addressing the director of the film, Nanjiani wrote, “Working with Chloé has been one of the most thrilling and satisfying experiences of my career. I’m excited to see her films for decades to come and grateful I get to be a small part of one of them. A visionary and a true filmmaker.”

He continued, “I know there isn’t much news yet! I’m in the dark too, trust me. I can’t wait for it, whenever it comes. But I promise the movie will be worth the wait. It’s the most exciting, fun, epic, thrilling, hilarious and moving project I’ve ever been a part of. And it’s massive. The scale of it is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. I would walk on to shoot and be awestruck by the sets every day.”

Eternals was originally slated for a November release, but has been moved to February to accommodate Marvel's Black Widow.

Marvel president Kevin Feige told The Hollywood Reporter that an LGBTQ relationship is ‘inherent’ to the film. “(An LGBTQ relationship in the film) was always sort of inherent in the story and the makeup of the different types of Eternals,” he said, adding that "I think it is extremely well done, and I look forward to that level of inclusion in our future films being less of a topic.”

The film also stars Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Richard Madden, Kit Harington, Gemma Chan and Don Lee among others.
