Captain Marvel's Gemma Chan Reportedly In Talks For MCU Phase 4 Movie The Eternals

Barry Keoghan is also said to be in talks.


Gemma Chan, who starred in Crazy Rich Asians and had a role in Captain Marvel, is reportedly in discussions to play a part in another MCU movie. Variety reports that Chan is in talks to appear in Phase 4 superhero movie The Eternals, which was formally announced at San Diego Comic-Con in July.

Chan played Minn-Erva in Captain Marvel. However, sources told Variety that Chan could have a different part in The Eteranals. That would be a big change, as it would be among the first times that an actor will play two different MCU characters.

Separately, Collider reports that Barry Keoghan (Chernobyl, Dunkirk) is also in talks for a role in The Eternals.

Chan and Keoghan would join a cast in The Eternals that already has plenty of big names including Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Salma Hayek, Kumail Nanjiani, Brian Tyree, and more. Lauren Ridloff is also joining the cast as Makkari, who will be the MCU's first deaf superhero.

The Eternals is being directed by Chloe Zhao (The Rider, Songs My Brother Taught Me). It opens in November 2020. For lots more, check out the story below.
