Angelina Jolie Rumored to be Joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Could Angelina Jolie be the first actress cast for a starring role in Marvel Studios, The Eternals?
It appears so! The actress, best known by Disney fans as Maleficient in the live action adaption of Sleeping Beauty called Maleficent, has been in talks with Marvel Studios for what appears to be a starring role in the upcoming film, The Eternals, by Marvel Studios.
For those who are not as familiar with the comics and Marvel lore, The Eternals were a group of beautiful, godlike, and good aligned beings created by the Celestials. We have seen one Celestial, or more accurately the remains of one, previously in The Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Infinity War. Remember “Knowhere”? The floating head in space with the mining facility and the home of The Collector? That is what we are referring to here. Needless to say they were very, very big and very powerful.
Kevin Fiege, of Marvel Studios, has said that the Eternals and Celestials do exist outside of the current continuity of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), and live for eons. Meaning an Eternals based film could take place much earlier that the current flow of the MCU or much later and in a very different place than we are used to seeing on screen.
Looking at the comics, we do know who the main nemisis of the Eternals are, and that is the Deviants. The Deviants believe they have the rightful claim to Earth and should be allowed to consume the planet and anything on it. This could be the main focus for the film, but only time will tell what these greater beings will be up to on the big screen.
A formal statement has yet to be released by either Angelina Jolie or Marvel Studios about the potential casting for the upcoming Marvel Studios film, The Eternals. Be sure to check back here at Chip & Co. for the latest Marvel News!
