Angelina Jolie May Be Joining The Marvel Cinematic Universe In The Eternals

Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe may be getting some mega-star power in the form of Oscar winner Angelina Jolie.

The Hollywood Reporter says Jolie is in talks to join one of Marvel’s upcoming movies, The Eternals, which is being directed by Chloe Zhao.

There’s no word on who Jolie would be playing in the film, mostly because there’s no word on what characters will even be in the movie. Plus, Marvel hasn’t even officially announced it. Kevin Feige has acknowledged it but, like most of the other movies coming from Marvel in the future, nothing will be made official until after next month’s release of Avengers: Endgame.

As we previously wrote, “Created by Jack Kirby in 1976…the Eternals are an offshoot of humanity, evolved by the space-bound, godlike beings known as the Celestials (like Star-Lord’s dad Ego in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) millions of years in Earth’s past, granting them powers and the ability to manipulate cosmic energies themselves.”

That’s the general idea, but what about this movie’s story? Well, one tidbit may have leaked, according to the Hollywood Reporter, which writes that “one aspect to the story involves the love story between Ikaris, a man fuelled by cosmic energy, and Sersi, who relishes moving amongst humans.”

Is the latter Jolie? We don’t know. What we do know is that there’s a good chance she’s going to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and that opens up lots of highly intriguing match-ups, meet-ups, and possibilites.
