Everybody’s favorite actress, Angelina Jolie, has been tipped by Marvel Studios to star in the lead role of their upcoming superhero movie ‘The Eternals’. The film will mark Jolie’s first superhero feature on the big screen and debut work with Marvel Studios (surprised right!).
The yet-to-be Jolie feature film is set millions of years ago when the cosmic beings known as the Celestials genetically experimented on humans to create super-powered individuals known as the Eternals along with the villainous Deviants. The two groups went on to battle each other throughout history. The Eternals also warred with Greek, Roman and Norse deities before leaving the Earth to explore the stars.
Currently, not much of Joile’s character and production date for the feature has been announced by Marvel. Created by Jack Kirby in 1976, ‘The Eternals’ will be directed by Chloe Zhao, produced by Kevin Feige and scripted by Matthew and Ryan Firpo.
Angelina Jolie, who is repped by UTA and Sioane Offer will star in the ‘Maleficent’ sequel ‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’ set to be released on October 18, 2019. Jolie will also star in the animation/live action hybrid ‘The One and Only Ivan’, which she is also producing and the fantasy drama ‘Come Away’ by Brenda Chapman.
