Marvel Studios’ The Eternals promises to be a cosmic comic book movie of epic proportions. Of course, with a film that touts a cast of Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, Richard Madden, Ma Dong-seok (aka Don Lee), Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, and Lia McHugh.
While at the D23 Expo today, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced a few more surprising additions to the cast. Joining the aforementioned cast will be Barry Keoghan as Druig and Gemma Chan as Sersi. But the biggest surprise of them all is Kit Harington joining the cast as a non-Eternal Dane Whitman. Cast members also appear at the panel in front of concept art of them in their costumes, which you can see here below.
No one really dies in comic books. That saying can be extended to comic book movies like the ones in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where characters who died in various movies across different time periods reappear in some form or another in later movies. Usually, this requires the actor to come back to reprise their respective role, with an exception to Hugo Weaving who did not come back to play Red Skull in both Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. But what if an actor came back to the MCU, but for a different role entirely?
Well, that could be the case according to a new report that says Captain Marvel star Gemma Chan is in talks for a role in The Eternals. More on the report below.
Marvel Studios hasn’t had a major appearance at San Diego Comic-Con since 2017, and they made up for their absence in a very big way at SDCC 2019. First they announced the end of “The Infinity Saga,” which is the first 11 years of films since the studio launched way back in 2008. Then Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed a few titles and a few stars that will appear in Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
One of those titles is The Eternals. Directed by Chloe Zhao, the film promises to be one of the most diverse ensemble films that Marvel has ever made. Check out the list below.
Child’s Play (2019) Directed by Lars Klevberg
Written by Tyler Burton Smith
Starring Aubrey Plaza, Gabriel Bateman, Brian Tyree Henry, Mark Hamill
Rated R | 90 minutes
Release date: June 21, 2019
The 1988 Tom Holland/Don Mancini Child’s Play took a ridiculous premise and elevated it to classic horror status thanks to a great cast, tremendous practical effects, and Brad Dourif’s iconic voice acting as Chucky. While that franchise continues to find new life on Blu-ray and TV, director Lars Klevberg and Orion rebooted the killer doll franchise with a movie that many hate and rip on general principle. Yet it’s perhaps thanks to having zero expectations that the updated Child’s Play is really freaking entertaining.
A poster has been released for the upcoming Child’s Play reboot which not so subtly goes after the much anticipated Pixar sequel Toy Story 4 with some savage toy on toy violence.
This is just the latest poster released which has a little fun with popular current events and topics. Posters were also released for the various holidays that have come and gone over the past five months or so, and even for 4/20.
You can find the new Child’s Play poster and the Toy Story 4 poster it attacks, as well as all of the holiday and 4/20 posters for anyone who missed them, below.
