The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines Tom Holland as such: verb. 1: to spoil the plot, details, or mere existence of a superhero film. Here's an example of Tom Holland in a sentence: "Man, Patton Oswalt really pulled a Tom Holland when he told the TODAY show that there's going to be an Eternals sequel, huh?"

Well, friend, it may not surprise you that Merriam-Webster has not officially made Tom Holland a verb (yet!), but Oswalt really did commit an epic biff on the TODAY show. In yesterday morning's appearance on the program, Oswalt got to talking about appearing alongside Harry Styles's Starfox, as Pip the Troll, in the post-credits scene of Eternals. "They have announced there's going to be an Eternals sequel," Oswalt said. "Chloé Zhao is going to direct it. So, hopefully there will be more adventures of Starfox and Pip." Have they announced an Eternals sequel, Patton? Have they?!

They have not.

Even though Marvel tagged on a title card at the end of Eternals that said the crew would return, we've heard nothing official about the future of the god-like team of heroes. Hell, Kevin Feige announced an insane amount of projects at Comic-Con, and there wasn't so much as a passing reference to Eternals, which starred Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, and Kit Harington. Given the mixed reception to the Marvel Cinematic Universe outing, it's understandable that Feige would take a beat before deciding its future. So, yeah. Oswalt might have let something slip here. Let's just hope he's OK, and that Feige isn't shaking him down somewhere in a dark alley.
