There's certainly not a lack of Marvel projects in the pipeline at Disney Plus right now – and Eternals writers Ryan and Kaz Firpo have set their sights on their own series with the streamer.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the pair explained that they would love to write a series that explored the backstory of Kingo, the character played by Kumail Nanjiani in the recently released film.

"[We could] go back and do a Kingo episode in 1890s Mumbai where he is juggling his life as a movie star, dealing with Gandhi’s peaceful dissolution of the British empire in India,” Kaz Firpo said.

"There’s an episode with Thena where she’s in Greece. I would love to make that show."

Although Kaz said that they had only talked about the idea "jokingly" for now, he added that there were several other possibilities for small-screen spin-offs featuring the Eternals.

"There are a lot of opportunities," he said. "If the audiences allow us, there’s going to be a story to tell with Dane Whitman. There’s going to be a story to tell in the Cosmos with the Eternals confronting Arishem and all the Celestials who are these incredible metaphors for creation. I think there’s a lot of stories in the Eternals universe."

And Ryan added: "It’s an exciting time to be a storyteller. With Disney Plus, with movies, there are so many opportunities to tell these stories and so many different formats. It’s a really exciting time to just explore new frontiers in narrative."
