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.
Coming after a streaming viewer record breaking debut weekend of season 3 of STRANGER THINGS on Netflix, one of its stars is seemingly headed next into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) has joined the cast of Marvel’s The Eternals, Variety reports. The actress will join the previously announced cast of Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, Richard Madden, Ma Dong-Seok and Salma Hayek. Details on Brown’s character have not yet been revealed.
Marvel is expected to make some major announcements during its Hall H panel at San Diego Comic Con on Saturday, July 20th from 5:15pm-6:45pm. This will more than likely be one of them along with a full reveal of any other major cast members.

Production on Marvel Studios The Eternals is set to begin later on this year. First there was news that Angelina Jolie and Kumail Nanjiani have signed on for key roles, and now it is being reported by The Wrap that Korean actor Ma Dong-seok (Train To Busan, The Outlaws) will make his American film debut in the cosmic superhero flick.
Now of Course Marvel Studios has not revealed any information as whom exactly Dong-Seok would be portraying but it is believed that Jolie may be portraying Sersi.
Since we are talking about The Eternals, That Hashtag Show has heard that Marvel and director Chloe Zhao are specifically looking for an openly gay/bisexual Asian actor in his twenties to play “James.”More than likely that’s not the character’s real name but he’s described as “intellectual, emotional, and has a strong sense of family.” Apparently, How To Get Away With Murder actor Conrad Ricamora is being eyed for the part.
