Gemma Chan to Join Angelina Jolie in 'The Eternals'

Gemma Chan to Join Angelina Jolie in 'The Eternals'

Gemma Chan is in talks to join "The Eternals".

It is unknown which role he will play yet. That saying can be extended to comic book movies like the ones in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where characters who died in various movies across different time periods reappear in some form or another in later movies.

Furthermore, Crazy Rich Asians actor Gemma Chan, who was last seen as the Kree Minn-Erva who got into a badass fight with Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel, is also in talks to be cast in the movie.

Chan and Keoghan are pretty great additions to an increasingly awesome cast, which should grow a bit more in the coming months.

This would essentially make her the first major MCU film actor to play multiple roles in Marvel's shared cinematic universe, though not the only one.

Chan previously appeared in the box office smash Captain Marvel, however it's unclear whether the star will reprise that role of play a different character. We've reached out to Marvel for comment and will update if the studio responds.

Other notable actors who've pulled double duty include Paul Bettany (who's played Vision and provided the voice of J.A.R.V.I.S.) and Sean Gunn (who's played Guardians of the Galaxy's Kraglin and done the motion-capture performance for Rocket). Keoghan's role has not been specified.

Filming on The Eternals is expected to begin later this year after Black Widow wraps production. Eternals is set for release November 6, 2020 in the USA and will likely premiere around the same time in Australia. They lived in space cities and defended Earth from threats, like the Deviants, another race of super-humans that was more destructive and deformed.
