Barry Keoghan Keeps Texting One Eternals Cast Member For Updates

Eternals Druig actor Barry Keoghan admits he’s constantly reaching out to a Marvel co-star in particular looking for updates on a sequel.

Barry Keoghan admits he’s constantly reaching out to his castmates for updates on Eternals 2. Directed by ChloĆ© Zhao, the original Eternals movie introduced a brand new superhero team to the MCU. Keoghan plays the Druig, who is best known for his ability to control ghosts. While the film also featured a number of deaths among the titular heroes, he is one of the survivors, making his MCU return likely.

Despite this, Marvel Studios has not yet made an official announcement for Eternals 2. Usually, standalone MCU movies come in a trilogy, with the exception of a few like Thor who recently released a fourth solo movie. Thor: Love and Thunder. Knowing this well, Keoghan is understandably eager to know when the team can return to the big screen and is candid about his surprise at the lack of news. While they may appear on the role in other MCU projects, there is still an expectation that their collective arcs will continue through Eternals 2 when the sequel is released.

Speak with UPROXXKeoghan confesses that he is constantly texting some of his other ones Eternals co-stars for any updates. In particular, he cites Kumail Nanjiani, who plays Kingo in the film, for an important reason. Read Keoghan’s full quote below:

Kumail is always the one I text. I’m like, “Yo, did you hear about Eternals 2?” Kumail knows everything. You know what I mean? He likes comic books. The comic world…

I always text him like about San Diego Comic-Con. I’m like, “Hey, are we going to San Diego for Eternals?” but I’d like to see where it goes. I really would.

Why hasn’t Marvel announced Eternals 2?

Marvel Studios has had two chances to officially announce Eternals 2 at San Diego Comic-Con and D23 Expo this year, but Kevin Feige and his team were mums on the matter. In fact, it’s barely talked about in junkets and interviews. It’s possible the franchise is prioritizing its upcoming projects first rather than announcing its plans for Eternals 2, which may not be released until the end of the burgeoning Multiverse Saga. For what it’s worth, Marvel Studios has not made an official statement about possible sequels Shang Chi 2 or Doctor Strange 3so until there is an official letter that the Eternals sequel does not happen, this should not be a cause for concern.

It’s curious what the rest of Keoghan’s castmates think about the lack of updates regarding Eternals 2. He didn’t share Nanjiani’s answer when he asked him about news – whether Nanjiani had an answer yet. As the MCU continues to grow, delayed sequels are one of the drawbacks of the franchise’s rapid expansion. Marvel Studios has a small but tight-knit management team led by Feige, and they understandably can’t oversee all of these projects, so they have to prioritize. In any case, Keoghan’s eagerness can only be a good thing, meaning he’ll be ready once they’re finally called to do Eternals 2.
