Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will include, among other projects, a movie about The Eternals. The cast of the intriguing movie already includes big names like Angelina Jolie (Thena), Richard Madden (Ikaris), Salma Hayek (Ajak), Kumail Nanjiani (Kingo), Lauren Ridloff (makkari), Brian Tyree Henry (phastos), Don Lee (Gilgamsh), and Lia McHugh (Sprite).

Now, new names will probably join the crew. Gemma Chan who already appeared in the MCU’s Captain Marvel and Barry Keoghan, who played on Dunkirk, are reportedly in talks to join the film. It is still unclear who will the duo play in the new movie and whether Chan will reprise her role from Captain Marvel or be one of the few actors with multiple roles in the MCU.

The movie is directed by Chloe Zhao who directed The rider, an acclaimed indie film which is a far cry of the blockbuster effects-driven movies usually composing the MCU movies.

The Eternals is scheduled to go on-screen on Nov. 6, 2020.
