Daytime talk show host spoils movie during interview with Kumail Nanjiani
Marvel fans who avoided Eternals spoilers so far hopefully weren’t watching the ITV talk show Cowardly Women Thursday, October 28. While we won’t be disclosing details here, one of the UK talk show’s panelists, Linda Robson, showed off one of the film’s most startling scenes while chatting with Eternals star Kumail Nanjiani. After ignoring the line of questions, Robson was interrupted by his colleague, Kaye Adams, who said, “Is this a spoiler?”
As the story goes Digital Spy, Robson responded by saying, “Oh, I don’t know, that could be.” She then attempted to change the subject, asking the 43-year-old actor about his co-star, Kit Harington. “Do you have Kit Harington’s phone number for me?” She asked jokingly.
The Loose Women just spoiled Eternals for me
Thanks Linda Robson

Nanjiani, who is surely bound by the NES and general Disney orders not to comment on the spoil in question, has played everything like a complete professional. Through his teeth he said, “I stay very still,” so as not to reveal anything. Although the clip was not shared online, Cowardly Women fans who watched live were furious with Robson and made sure to tweet their frustrations.
Lots of details around Eternals It’s still unclear, with director Chloe Zhao and her company hoping that the epic story of the Celestial Beings of the Marvel Universe plays out properly when it hits theaters on Friday, November 5. Nanjiani himself hasn’t delved too deeply into the story of his character, Kingo, in press interviews. However, in an interview with our sister site ComicBook.com, he assured fans that there is a healthy mix of ties to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and standalone story rhythms.
Do #LooseWomen really just spoiling the end of Eternals? It was so embarrassing

“Chloe [Zhao] had it all planned out, and she had a very specific sense of… Because the point is that the Eternals kind of hid themselves, right? ”Nanjiani said when asked if Kingo had met other mighty heroes. “So they did.” I didn’t speak to Iron-Man, Captain America and all those people. They claim to be normal human beings. But it makes sense that my character encountered a another character that is not from Earth either. I’m trying to be vague. I don’t know what to say and what not to say. So I think that was all part of the thing, so that even if Eternals is truly a standalone movie, you want to feel the presence and reality of the rest of the MCU around it. And Chloe is such a nerd with encyclopedic knowledge of Marvel and the MCU. So she was very excited to drop these references. “
