Salma Hayek Possibly Joining the Cast of Marvel Studios ‘The Eternals’. Reports from ComicBook.com say that Salma Hayek and Marvel Studios are “in talks” regarding a role in the upcoming Marvel film, The Eternals.
The only confirmed cast for the film includes actors Richard Madden and Kumail Nanjiani, and in the report about Salma, there is no mention of Angelina Jolie or Keanu Reeves. Though the two have been approached by Marvel Studios in regards to the film, it appears they are either negotiating contracts with the Studio, or Marvel is keeping the casting decisions quiet until a later date.
“Well, one of the cool things about that property and what Jack Kirby did with it and what’s been done with it in recent years is it does tie into they’re called Eternals, they’ve been around for a long time. You know?” Feige said. “There’s this notion of all of these myths and legends that we know from ancient times, were they inspired by the Eternals? Were they Eternals? It’s a very … you know, it’s an ancient aliens kind of sci-fi trope that we think would be fun to explore someday.”
You might be asking yourself, “Wait. So… who are “The Eternals”?”
According to a synopsis of the relatively unknown comic series in Production Weekly, “The story of The Eternals is set millions of years ago when the cosmic beings known as the Celestials genetically experimented on humans, creating the super-powered individuals as well as more villainous off-shoots known as the Deviants. The two groups went on to battle each other throughout history to see which would eventually become the ultimate race. The story involves the love story between Ikaris, a man fueled by cosmic energy, and Sersi, who relishes in moving amongst humans.”
Marvel Fans are chomping at the bit to hear of any news regarding this film and with the talks of casting choices still up in the air, it’s no wonder so many names of talented individuals are being thrown into the ring. Regardless of Marvel’s casting choices, we can’t wait to see Marvel Studios The Eternals when it hits theaters!
