Wait, was that Harish Patel in the clip from Eternals that Marvel released this week? Standing next to Kumail Nanjiani? It was indeed. There was much ado online after the Internet thought it spotted the veteran actor in Marvel's detailing of Phase 4 line-up release dates; and yes, it was him alright - but please don't ask him what role he's playing. Speaking to Indian Express, Harish Patel said, "Yes, the man you saw in the teaser is me. I can just confirm that I am doing Eternals but cannot speak about it right now. The makers haven't even announced my name, and I will wait for them to do that."
Harish Patel, 67, is a well-known face from both stage and screen. His prolific career includes roles in films such as Mandi, Gunda, Mr India, Andaz Apna Apna and Zubeidaa as well as TV shows like Malgudi Days, Yatra, Bharat Ek Khoj and Wagle Ki Duniya.

Eternals is based on the Marvel Comics series of the same name about an immortal alien race who live secretly on Earth.
