Marvel's Eternals Movie: Everything You Need to Know


Jack Kirby's Eternals are joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Here's everything we know so far.

It’s official: Marvel’s Eternals is becoming a Phase 4 movie and we got some solid information about this installment out of SDCC 2019. Chloe Zhao (Songs My Brother Taught Me) will direct the Eternals movie. Zhao was apparently at one point under consideration to direct Marvel’s Black Widow movie, as well (the job eventually went to Cate Shortland).

Here’s everything you need to know…

Marvel’s Eternals Cast and Characters

The cast is as follows: Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, and Angelina Jolie as Thena.

But the most mysterious news, is that Gemma Chan will join the cast in an unnamed role. Ms. Chan played Minn-Erva in Captain Marvel, but THR doesn’t yet know if she’ll be reprising that role or playing a new character. Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk, Chernobyl) has also joined in an unknown role.

Marvel’s Eternals Story

THR reported that “one aspect to the story involves the love story between Ikaris, a man fueled by cosmic energy, and Sersi, who relishes moving amongst humans.” When Neil Gaiman and John Romita Jr. took on The Eternals in 2006, Sersi was a central character, albeit one who didn’t remember her immortal heritage. It’s easy to see how that could make for a central character in a movie.

Matthew and Ryan Firpo, whose Black List script Ruin has made waves, will write the screenplay.

We’ve already seen other Eternals concepts appear on screen in Guardians of the Galaxy, where one of the Celestials had a brief appearance in the first movie. The problem, of course, is that the last time Marvel tried to adapt one of Jack Kirby’s more out-there concepts, it was The Inhumans, which was a spectacular failure on TV after floundering around as a potential movie for several years. Of course, it’s all about the execution, as Guardians of the Galaxy and its wildly successful sequel both proved.

Marvel’s Eternals Release Date

Marvel’s Eternals will hit theaters on Nov. 6, 2020.
