Last month saw it revealed that Marvel Studios was planning an Eternals movie, and now comes word on who’ll be penning the picture.
As per The Hollywood Reporter, cousins Matthew and Ryan Firpo have been brought in to write the film. The Firpo duo are likely best known for writing the 2017 Black List favourite Ruin. That post-war drama has Gal Gadot on board to star, with Macbeth’s Justin Kurzel to direct.
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.
Expect more on Eternals as it continues to develop as the MCU progresses further and further through the stars.
