Marvel's Phase 4 Movie The Eternals Adds More To Cast [UPDATE]
The Stranger Things star is said to be joining the MCU Phase 4 movie.
[UPDATE: Millie Bobby Brown now says she has "no idea" if she'll be in The Eternals]
With Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home out of the way, Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is over. Phase 4 of the MCU is expected to be revealed during either San Diego Comic-Con later this month or D23 soon after, and one of the movies in the mix is The Eternals. Now, a new report reveals who may star in it.
Variety reports that Stranger Things and Godzilla actress Millie Bobby Brown is in the movie, alongside Oscar winner Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick), and Richard Madden (Game of Thrones). The film is to be directed by Chloe Zhao (The Rider).
Other MCU Phase 4 movies are expected to be Shang-Chi, which will be the first MCU movie with an Asian lead, along with Doctor Strange 2, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Black Panther 2, and Black Widow.
The first Eternals comic was published in 1976 by late writer and artist, Jack Kirby (1917-1994). The Eternals, an offshoot of life created by an alien race called the Celestials, were established to protect the Earth from the Deviants, a dastardly project by the Celestials gone awry. 30 years later, eclectic writer Neil Gaiman gave the superheroes a facelift in 2006, bringing them and their universe to the modern era with a seven-issue miniseries that concluded in 2007.
