2021’s The Eternals could have seen Kingo and Eros meet in a post-credit scene, according to actor Kumail Nanjiani. In an appearance on the happy sad confused podcastpicked up by entertainment weeklyNanjiani revealed that he filmed “a very different type of post-credits sequence” for Eternals that would have seen his character on screen alongside Harry Styles.

While Nanjiani was wary of giving away too many details, he explained that the two characters didn’t actually interact per se. “We don’t really talk. We just look at each other from afar,” Nanjiani explained, before adding, “I don’t really know what I can say.”

The mid-credit scene that ended up making its way to our screens featured Harry Styles as Eros, but didn’t feature Nanjiani, as his character Kingo had been kidnapped in an earlier scene. Nanjiani also spoke about the experience of working alongside Styles for the film, even if they didn’t share a scene together in the end.

“I started hearing rumors here and there and I thought it was bullshit,” he recounted. “I was like, ‘The One Direction guy? No way.’ And then you show up to work one day and there’s the gorgeous Harry Styles. ‘Hey, dude!’ And I was like, ‘Hey? What are you doing here, man?'”

When asked about his future with The Eternals and his character Kingo, Nanjiani was unsure if he would be asked to return to the role.

“I really don’t know if my character is going to come back,” he said. “I’d love to go back and do it, but I really, really, really don’t know. It sucks. I’d love to go back and do it again!”
