Marvel Fans Are Going Crazy Over Angelina Jolie Joining The Eternals


It seems that the MCU may soon have another Oscar-winner in its roster, with THR reporting that Angelina Jolie is in talks to join the cast of The Eternals.

So far, details on Chloe Zhao’s film are in short supply, and that goes especially for the cast list. Nonetheless, it’s clear that the Jolie name holds a lot of clout with the fans, a lot of whom have taken to Twitter to show their excitement for the potential franchise newcomer:

The THR report also relayed word that The Eternals will include a “love story between Ikaris, a man fueled by cosmic energy, and Sersi, who relishes moving amongst humans.” The claim has prompted speculation that Jolie might be playing Sersi, though it’s unlikely that Marvel Studios will offer any confirmation at least until after they’re finished with the MCU’s 2019 slate.

As it stands, we’ve already heard quite a few rumors and reports on Zhao’s movie, the most noteworthy perhaps being that the film may feature the MCU’s first openly gay lead. And while Marvel has remained tight-lipped on the matter, they’ve at least made it very clear that plans are in place to improve the franchise’s LGBT representation.

In any case, it’s expected that The Eternals will arrive in theaters in November, 2020, as the year’s second MCU movie. In the meantime, Avengers: Endgame is set for release on April 26th of this year, followed by Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 5th. And after that, the Black Widow solo movie is reportedly aiming for a May 2020 release. As for Jolie, you can see her reprise her role in another Disney franchise when Maleficent: Mistress of Evil comes out on October 18th, 2019.
