Gemma Chan In Talks To Join Marvel's 'The Eternals'

Recommended Posts

Sources have informed Variety that "Crazy Rich Asians" star Gemma Chan is in talks to join Marvel's "The Eternals."  Previously announced to the cast are Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek and Kumail Nanjiani.

In "Captain Marvel," Chan portrayed Minn-Erva, but its unknown if she will play the same role again in "The Eternals" or if she would have a completely different role.

Created by Jack Kirby in 1976, the comic book is set millions of years in the past, 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 battled each other throughout history. The Eternals also warred with Greek, Roman and Norse deities before leaving Earth to explore the stars.

The Eternals is set to hit theaters November 6th, 2020.

Still trying to keep an open mind but i've never found the Eternals interesting.. either their maxi-series in the 80s drawn by Sal Buscema, nor their storyline in Roger Sterns Avengers, nor the Neil Gaiman series.  I should have some faith given the mcu's track record and the casting decisions so far but feels like an odd property for marvel to choose to adapt.  Say what you will about GotG and Ant-man but both at least had some memorable comic runs building up to their mcu appearances (granted with Ant-man it was the Eric O'Grady version but still).

I still tend to associate Gemma with that bbc robot series, still haven't seen crazy rich asians.

Oh yeah now I do remember her, the BBC series with the androids. I guess they must have cancelled that show. I haven't heard anything else about it. Back in the day I wouldn't even pick up a GOTG comic to read, so when I heard about the MCU version I was not excited at all. But thanks to some good writers and actors I am a fan now. I think Marvel is hoping for some of that same success with the Eternals. Hope it works out.

It is hard to say, I don't remember the Eternals having much interaction with the Kree, it is possible she will play someone else (we still haven't gotten Sersi)

I too, am wondering if she's gonna reprise her role from Captain Marvel or play a different character. I hope she reprises her role as I liked her in the movie and was looking forward to her becoming an antagonist in a future installment. I know very little about the Eternals and I'm still scratching my head as the fact they are getting a movie but so far it has a solid cast and I'm curious about how the final product turns out.

I had no clue who the Eternals were until SDCC this year so I'm not so sure who Gemma would play. Usually I would see who the actor/actress looks most like from the comics and guess from there.

    • In this segment called Marvelous Photo Of The Day, we spotlight awesome Toy Photography from some of the hottest photographers on the Internet today. For today we are spotlighting Photographer Aliska and her photo of the Marvel One:12 Collective Daredevil figure titled "Beat To Hell". You can purchase One:12 Collective figures from our sponsor Megalopolis.Toys.   "Beat To Hell" By Aliska Be sure to give Aliska a follow on Instagram and let her know what you think of their work in the comments below.
    • Believe it or not, they did release a Satana back in the 2013 SDCC Exclusive Thunderbolts boxed set.  It's not the classic look of course, but was pretty far from toned down for Hasbro.
    • That's what I'm holding out hope for. Too true, sad, but true.
    • I have to say the Walgreen's Invisible Woman is my favorite for three reasons: 1) she was my very first Marvel Legends figure, my gateway into collecting this brand; 2) Sue is my favorite female Marvel superhero; and 3) it's a good-looking figure with cool interchangeable hands, an attractive body and head sculpt--and H.E.R.B.I.E.! Other female Marvel Legends I really like are: Spider-Gwen Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew, original costume) Black Widow (vintage wave) The Enchantress Female characters that I want Hasbro to release are: Captain Marvel II/Photon/Spectrum (classic Monica Rambeau) She-Hulk (either from the Savage or Sensational She-Hulk comics, not the new version) Magik (classic New Mutants costume with the eldritch armored arm and a reasonable-sized sword) Gamora (original appearance, green fishnet-looking costume) Satana, the Devil's Daughter (I doubt this will happen) Colleen Wing (my Misty Knight figure needs her partner) Clea (Doctor Strange's paramour) Tigra Princess Python (from the Circus of Crime, complete with giant bendy-wire snake that can wrap around her) Rogue (original green costume, hood, short hair) The Wasp is another one of my favorite Marvel women, and I have both of her comic figures, but I really would like to see another based on one of her more iconic costumes from either the '70s or '80s.
    • Carol Danvers Ms Marvel hands down. She looks like how a real woman looks (I know, I collect toys, how would I know what a real woman should look like). Her proportions are perfect to me. She is one character that Hasbro and even Toybiz seems to just knock out of the park. Loved the Toybiz’s version and the Hasbro one upped that version as well. A few others are Mockingbird (great sculpt and costume), Photon (or was she Pulsar? Beautiful face) MCU Wasp was a pleasant surprise, and i thought the Riders Black Widow was a welcome minor change to her usual offering
