There are chances that Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe could be better than Phase 3 because the movies which are lined up for us are really amazing. With Avengers: Endgame, the Phase 3 along with Infinity Saga will end and that’s when we’ll witness major changes both in terms of content and approach of Marvel towards their new projects. Among the few that are coming up, The Eternals have caught on pace when it comes to its casting.
New reports have flashed that Kumail Nanjiani is in talks with Marvel to be a part of this cosmic film which will be the ultimate MCU prequel. Oscar-nominee Kumail who has starred in Jordon Peele’s Twilight Zone reboot could also make his way into The Eternals, if all goes well. The report has been broken by The Hollywood Reporter on Friday suggesting high chances of him being cast in the film along with Angelina Jolie who could be seen in the role of Sersi in the movie.
Meanwhile, everything is under wrap about this project and we can only wait for an official announcement. Kumail got into limelight with Big Sick, the movie based on his and his wife’s lives for which they both wrote the screenplay. Their work earned them an Oscar nomination. Next, he will appear in Men in Black: International and Stuber, alongside Dave Bautista.
Here’s the synopsis of the movie running around the internet:
“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 Deviants. The two groups went on to battle each other throughout history to see which would eventually become the ultimate race. The story involves the love story between Ikaris, a man fueled by cosmic energy, and Sersi, who relishes moving amongst humans.”
