Marvel is far from done with its big screen affairs, having advanced their next phase of the MCU going forward. Adding The Eternals to its roster, Chloe Zhao has been attached to direct.
Created by Jack Kirby, the story of “The Eternals” 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.
The two groups went on to battle each other throughout history to see which would eventually become the ultimate race.
Zhao previously directed Sony Pictures release, The Rider, which became an award-winning feat at Cannes last year.
Zhao will direct The Eternals with a script from Matthew and Ryan Firpo who previously penned the script on Justin Kurzel’s upcoming WWII revenge thriller, Ruin, with Margot Robbie and Matthias Schoenaerts starring. She was also reported earlier this year to helm an upcoming biopic based on Bass Reeves, the first black U.S. deputy, for Amazon Studios.
