While this Eternals tidbit has been making the rounds online for months it’s nice to have it finally confirmed. During a profile of Eternals director Chloe Zhao at The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel Studios and actor Kumail Nanjiani confirmed that his superhero character Kingo will be a Bollywood star in the film and talked about filming a dance sequence.
NANJIANI: “When I walked onto the set and saw a huge group of brown people who were going to be in a Marvel movie, I felt such gratitude towards Chloé for creating the situation. The scene was full of joy.”
Kumail stunned a lot of people revealing his massive transformation from regular comedic actor to beefcake.
The rest of the film’s cast includes Gemma Chan as Sersi, Kit Harington as Dane Whitman aka Black Knight, Barry Keoghan as Druig, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Angelina Jolie as Thena, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Lia McHugh as Sprite, and Don Lee as Gilgamesh.
