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.
