In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Kumail Nanjiani talks about how much of a sci-fi vibe The Eternals is and said, “It’s really, really an epic, and it’s really such a science-fiction story. It’s a superhero story, but in some ways, it’s the most sci-fi of all the Marvel movies and it’s the most epic of all the Marvel movies. And the story spans thousands of years. So, it’s really not like any of the other Marvel movies.”

Kumail goes on to gush about just how much he loves the movie and said, “I love superhero movies, but beyond that, this is exactly the type of movie that I love. If someone would say, ‘All right, what kind of movie do you want to watch? What are the things that’s going to have?’ I would say all these things.”
He also addresses something that I’ve always been curious about, the suit! Every super suit looks like it would be such a pain to wear, but surprisingly he said, although the super suit is very elaborate, it’s actually really comfortable. Okay Kumail you got me, I’m officially excited! Now, we just have to wait until November 6, thank goodness it’s this year!
In the same interview, he gave Entertainment Weekly his reaction to fans reaction of his incredible transformation, you know the one involving all those abs.
He posted a picture on Instagram not thinking it would get as big as it did, but after checking on it he said “Each time I looked, it was getting bigger and bigger and bigger, and then it was like this thing that was going out of my control. I remember at one point looking at Twitter, scrolling down, and just seeing my own naked torso over and over and over. I could not believe how big it got.”
He even texted his brother to make sure his parents were okay about it! Luckily they handled it just fine.
