Angelina Jolie is going to make her first entrance into the world of superhero movies with the new project, The Eternals. The Oscar-winning actress is in talks to star in the superhero team adventure movie which will be directed by Chloe Zhao. Details about the movie are kept confidential, but sources told The Hollywood Reporter that a part of the story will involve the love story between Ikaris, a man fueled by cosmic energy, and Sersi, who relishes moving amongst humans. However, Jolie’s role in the play is still unclear.
The director, Chloe Zhao, is an awarding winning indie director behind the critical hits ‘The Rider’ and ‘Songs My Brothers Taught me’. She will direct with the help from Matthew and Ryan Firpo who will take over the scripts. This will be Jolie’s first superhero movie but not her first comic book movie has she starred in the 2007 adaptation of Mark Millar’s Wanted. She is the first member who has entered the project and The Eternals is expected to begin filming in August this year.
Jolie is currently working on ‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’ with Disney which is expected to be released on October 2019.
I'm honestly super excited about this, I know little to none about them and would like to see the movie adaptations then compare it to comics after and see how well they do it. Any comic recommendations for learning about The Eternals?
