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.

Fans of Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel will be excited to know that the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first female standalone film is now available on 4K, Blu-ray, and Digital. Though it may not leave as much of an impression on fans as an Avengers ensemble film, as a standalone it is able to leave a lasting impact because of its themes and added layers, which makes it better than any traditional action flick.
Filled with some insightful and powerful thematic bonus features, Captain Marvel will surely be a great addition to the collection of any fan of Marvel Studios or superhero films in general. Check out the review below.
Recently Geeks of Doom was invited to attend the Captain Marvel press conference, where we got to chat with stars Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), Lashana Lynch (Maria Rambeau), Jude Law (Yon Rogg), Gemma Chan (Doctor Minerva), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), and Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson).
In this interview, Larson, Lynch, and Chan talk about being more than just a superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. See what they had to say below.
Though there have been many strong female characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain Marvel is the first time that Marvel Studios brings its fans a female superhero standalone film. The film sees Brie Larson play Carol Danvers, a highly skilled soldier of Star Force, an elite Kree peacekeeping force, separated from her troop when she crash lands on the planet Earth. Determined to reunite with her team, she soon discovers that she has a deep connection with this planet, and starts to search for the clues that could help unlock the memories of her mysterious past.
We were invited to attend the Captain Marvel press junket with our fellow journalists to talk to Larson, Lashana Lynch (Maria Rambeau), Jude Law (Yon Rogg), and Gemma Chan (Doctor Minerva). Additionally, MCU alum members Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson) also attended to chat about appearing in the upcoming film.
As much as this is a continuation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain Marvel holds so much more meaning for the studio. It’s Marvel Studios’ first female standalone film, and one with such an empowering message and a character who will be a symbol of inspiration to everyone, especially young girls. And that would not have been possible without directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who took their character-driven story approach to the upcoming film. Find out more about their leap from small films to Marvel Studio blockbuster tentpoles below.
