Kumail Nanjiani is in Negotiations To Join Marvel's THE ETERNALS
Actor and comedian Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley, The Big Sick) is about to start his epic journey in the MCU. He is in negotiations with Marvel Studios to join Angelina Jolie in The Eternals.
The report says that Jolie is understood to be taking on the role of Sersi, which is what fans have been speculating. As for who Nanjiani is playing, there’s no information on that, but you can click here to see a list of characters who are said to be appearing in the movie. But, his character might not be any of those as he doesn’t really fit any of them. But, we’ll see!
The Eternals was created by the legendary Jack Kirby, and the story is set millions of years ago “when the cosmic beings known as the Celestials genetically experimented on humans, creating the super-powered individuals as well as more villainous off-shoots known as the Deviants.” Those two groups went on to battle each other throughout history to see which would eventually become the ultimate race.
Chloe Zhao (The Rider) is directing the film from a script written by Matthew and Ryan Firpo. The studio is preparing to start shooting the film this year.
