    The Eternals are represented in the Marvel Cinematic Universe through the presence of Thanos.

    In April 2018, Kevin Feige announced that a film based on the Eternals had begun development, with a focus on Ikaris & Sersi as its central characters. In May 2018, Matthew & Ryan Firpo were hired to write the script for the project. By late-September, Marvel hired Chloé Zhao to direct the film.

    Rumoured Cast:

    Angelina Jolie - Sersi
    Richard Madden - Ikaris
    Matthew Rhys - Young Odin
    Keanu Reaves - Druig
    Kumail Nanjiani
    Ma Dong-seok
    Luke Evans
    Shawnee Smith
    Millie Bobby Brown
    Michael Obiora
    Salma Hayek

    Filming was originally set to begin in August 2019 in Atlanta, but was later pushed to September 9, 2019 and will last until January 2020; filming will now occur in London.

    passionate, but i don't give no fucks Prestigious

    Probably my most anticipated Marvel Studios film right now. I loved The Rider & am super curious what Chloé Zao does within the Marvel machine, especially w/ a property like Jack Kirby's Eternals.

    Anyone curious about this property should read the Eternals comic that Neil Gaiman & John Romita Jr did.

    I’m curious to see how Zhao does. I would like to see a strong Hollywood blockbuster do successfully under her direction.

    I can’t say I’m particularly thrilled for the Eternals though. Hopefully it’s not all set way in the past.

    HOPEFULLY it's not another Inhumans fiasco.

    I would also like to know when this Keanu rumor started. That would increase my interest in this.

    It’s either going to be this or Dr Strange 2 for the November release

    Yeah, as far as I can tell this hasn't started filming yet, I wouldn't be too shocked if Dr. Strange 2 is farther along than we think and ready to slide into the November slot

    I like some of his stuff, Man Without Fear probably being his peak

    I do wish he didn't use the same head for basically every character lol

    He's only rumoured at this point, nothing set in stone

  20. These actors are mentioned again in a new Variety article. Really need official confirmation because the rumored cast list is very intriguing.

    I just want to know if this is to be a period piece or if the Eternals will actually be in future films interacting with other heroes.
