The Marvel Studios Comic Con panel is now underway in San Diego and the event is doing what was widely expected it would do – it unveiled the official ‘Phase 4’ line-up of films.
First up came Chloe Zhao’s “The Eternals” which is confirmed to star Angelina Jolie as Thena, Richard Madden is Ikaris, Lauren Ridoff is Makarri, Brian Tyree Henry as Faustus, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Kumail Nunjiani, Don Lee as Gilgamesh and Salma Hayek as Ajax the Leader.
The Jack Kirby-created comic centers around the super power near-god beings The Celestials and their villainous adversaries the Deviants in a galactic war millions of years ago. The Celestials experimented on humans creating both races of immortal spin-offs.
Matthew and Ryan Firpo wrote the script for the new film which Kevin Feige is producing.
“Eternals” will premiere November 6th 2020.
