Avengers: Endgame is now within touching distance, and that means that we can expect to soon start getting new information on several upcoming MCU movies. With that in mind, then, we now have word on a new addition for the impending Eternals offering.
Courtesy of The Wrap, Train to Busan’s Ma Dong-seok has signed on for the picture in a mystery role. This will mark Ma’s American film debut, and the actor joins a cast that’s currently made up Angelina Jolie and Kumail Nanjiani.
At this stage, details are still sketchy on The Eternals, with – much like so many impending MCU movies – more concrete information expected to be revealed once the landscape-altering Avengers: Endgame hits the big screen next week.
Created by the iconic Jack Kirby back in 1976, the Eternals comic book title was based around a race of age-old humans created by the alien Celestials with the plan being for these humans to serve as Earth’s protectors against the nefarious Deviants. The big-screen Eternals will reportedly be based around the Sersi character who is an energy-manipulating being who is pretty much immortal, with that being the role that Angeline Jolie will be taking on.
With Chloe Zhao on directing duties, expect more on The Eternals as it continues to develop.
