The Marvel Cinema Universe is about to add a famous name to its adventures with supernatural beings.Angelina Jolie is in talks for a central role in The Eternals, a fourth-generation UCM production that will kick off a super-franchise franchise.
Although it was not specified and the role that could come to the star, it seems that it is Sersi, a superhuman from the Eternal group, who “loves to live among the earthly.” She falls in love with Ikaris, a man who pulls his powers out of “cosmic energy.”
Drawings The Eternals were pictured by Jack Kirby in 1976. It was his first title once returned to Marvel after working with DC Comics in the early 1970s. The Eternals, human beings and extraordinary powers, have been named protectors of the Earth by other more powerful entities, The Celestials. The Eternals are in an endless conflict with The Deviants, a failed experiment of the Celestines, whose hideous looks are a reflection of their violent and hateful nature.
The Eternals will be directed by Chloe Zhao (The Rider), following a script by Matthew and Ryan Firpo. Angelina Jolie will see her in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil on October 18th.
