Another great star is rumored to be joining the hall of actors who starred in a Marvel film. Marvel is working on a new project where the one rumored to play the central character is none other than Angelina Jolie.
The new Marvel movie we should anticipate about is based from Jack Kirby’s “The Eternals”.
Angelina’s role is presumably the central character of the group, Sersi. The Eternals is the first in the series of the story of these superheroes. Its story is about a group of almost immortal humans who were given superpowers by aliens and shaped earth’s history. The group of these powerful mortals are split into two: the eternals and, those who are “more monstrous”, the Deviants. Both groups were the result of the experiments done by the Celestials, the cosmic gods, to proto-humans.
If the rumor is true, then, this will be Angelina Jolie’s first superhero film. Although, this is not her first film that came from a comic book. She have starred in the adaptation of a miniseries made by Mark Millar and J.G. Jone’s, Wanted, alonside actor James McAvoy in 2008.
This film will be written by cousins Matthew and Ryan Firpo and will be directed by the first female director of color for Marvel, Chloe Zhao, who also directed the drama film “Songs My Brother Taught Me” and Indie film “The Rider”.
Aside from the big star, Angelina Jolie, there is also a rumor that Marvel Cinematic Universe will be including their first openly gay hero in the film.
As we wait for further announcements, the second Maleficent film is reportedly going to be released this October, which is what Angelina is also working on now.
