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 cast lineup of the upcoming Marvel Studios Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson is garnering more and more hype for the film. This announcement just keeps it going.  Humans star Gemma Chan is set to play Minn-Erva in superhero movie. Now in the comics-verse, Minn-Erva (aka Doctor Minerva) is a Kree geneticist and spy.

The plot and even basic details are being kept quiet for the first female-led MCU superhero film.  We do know that It will center on Carol Danvers (Larson), an Air Force pilot who has her DNA was fused with that of an alien during an accident, the resulting alteration imbued her with the superpowers of strength, energy projection and flight.  now this will be interesting as well because Minn-Erva has similar powers to that of what Danvers obtains.
Other announced cast members of Captain Marvel include Jude Law, Samuel L Jackson, Dewanda Wise and Ben Mendelsohn who is said to be the lead villain. Captain Marvel is set in the 90s prior to all of the other MCU films. It is set to be released in theaters on March 8, 2019
