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.
