Angelina Jolie in Talks to Join Marvel’s THE ETERNALS
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jolie is still in exploratory talks with Marvel with regards to her role. This isn’t the first comic book movie she’s done too, as she appeared opposite James McAvoy in the film adaptation of Wanted.
The Eternals will be one of the next batch of films spinning out of Marvel Studios’ Phase Four series of movies which ends with Avengers: Endgame. It will be directed by Chloe Zang (Songs My Brothers Taught Me, The Rider) and a script by Matthew and Ryan Firpo.
There’s a lot to talk about the Eternals, which was created by Jack Kirby by the way, but the simplest premise is that it revolves around two groups of cosmic beings namely the Eternals with Ikaris as their front man, and the Deviants, disfigured and inhumanly looking creatures.
According to rumors, there will be a love story component here between Ikaris and Sersi, who has formed a deep bond and genuine love for humans and mortals.
No word yet on who Jolie would be playing and Marvel has kept mum over the casting news. Meanwhile, be sure to look out for Jolie as she reprises her role for Maleficent 2 which also comes out this year.
