The Eternals are an ancient race that were created by the Celestials alongside the more evil Deviants. Thanos, the Mad Titan who has loomed over the entire MCU up to this point, is an Eternal who carries the Deviant gene.
Sources have told THR that this film may follow Ikaris and Sersi, who are Eternals born generations following A’lars, the father of Thanos.
Angelina Jolie is also reportedly in talks to join the cast and very well may star as the previously mentioned Sersi. Richard Madden, known for his role as Robb Stark in Game of Thrones, is said to be in talks to play Ikaris.
Salma Hayek has recently been seen in The Hitman’s Bodyguard and How to Be a Latin Lover, and was nominated for Best Actress for her performance as Frida Kahlo in 2002’s Frida.
The Eternals would most likely be seen in Phase 4 of the MCU, as Phase 3 is ending on July 2 with the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home.
