Gemma Chan In Talks To Join THE ETERNALS

Gemma ChanVanity Fair Oscar Party, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 24 Feb 2019

Even after the blockbuster cast announcement we were given about Marvel Studios THE ETERNALS  at San Diego Comic Con is seems as if that roster is still expanding. “Crazy Rich Asians” star Gemma Chan is in talks to join THE ETERNALS this is according to Variety.

Chan would join previously announced cast members Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek and Kumail Nanjiani. Chan is no stranger to the Marvel Cinematic Unverse, earlier this year she portrayed Minn-Erva in CAPTAIN MARVEL with Brie Larson and Jude Law. Its unknown if she will be playing the same role in THE ETERNALS.

Variety’s sources are saying that Chan’s part in THE ETERNALS would be a completely different role, which if true, would mark one of the first times a star will have played two different characters in the same cinematic universe.

People have to separate the actors that were in the Marvel Netflix series’ (i.e Alfre Woodard, Mahershala Ali, etc) as they are now being considered connected yet separated. 

Marvel has not commented as of this posting.

The WOW factor for the annual Arrowverse crossover keeps happening. First it was annouced that Black Lightning and other characters from the show will be involved in the annual event now another blockbuater announcement was revealed today at the TCA’s.

Kevin Conroy who voiced Batman in BATMAN THE ANIMATED SERIES as its spinoffs, will join the cast of CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS in the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman . Many have argued that even thougg not physically seen on screen he is the best Batman of all time. The addition of Conroy comes along with announcements that Burt Ward (Batman) would appear, and Brandon Routh would reprise his role from SUPERMAN RETURNS.

CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS ” will be the biggest crossover event that The CW’s DC Universe TV series have attempted yet, with five series (ARROWTHE FLASHSUPERGIRLDC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, and BATWOMAN). The story will, at least according to the onscreen canon established so far and comments by cast and producers at Comic Con, feature the death of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), who struck a mysterious deal with The Monitor (Lamonica Garrett during last season’s “ELSEWORLDS” crossover in order to save the lives of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), who were “destined” to die in the event.

BLACK LIGHTNING Is Appearing In The CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS Crossover

The CW is gearing up for what is arguably going to be the biggest crossover ever with its Arrowverse shows in CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS. The shows that are the foundation for this are ARROW, THE FLASH, SUPERGIRL DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW. 

One show that is notably missing from the list is THE CW’s BLACK LIGHTNING. The show starring Cress Williams centered around Jefferson Pierce a former superhero turned high school principal who is brought back into the fight to save his hometown of Freeland and daughters as Black Lightning. He is also aided in his vigilante battle by his two superpowered daughters and his doctor wife. They all battle against the villainous Tobias Whale and other metahumans.

Many people were wondering whether or not the show would cross over into the arrowverse fold or would the titular hero even be part of the crossover and now we may have our answer.

In an article from FANDOMWIRE.COM is seems that is prettt much official that Black Lightning will be making an appearance in CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS.  Cress Williams seelingly has confirmed this via his twitter.

It is being stated that Black Lightning will not have a major role but his will be similar to that of Batwoman’s in last years, ELSEWORLDS.

Black Lightning Season 3 is set to air on October 21, 2019, and will see Cress Williams (Jefferson Pierce/Black Lightning), China Anne McClain (Jennifer Pierce / Lightning), Nafessa Williams (Anissa Pierce / Thunder), and James Remar (Peter Gambi).

Are you excited for this potential blockbuster news and how do you hope for it to play out?
