Gemma Chan May Join Marvel’s Eternals

Gemma Chan May Join Marvel’s Eternals

Earlier this year, Humans star Gemma Chan made her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut as the Kree warrior Minn-Erva in Captain Marvel. Now, it appears that Chan may be returning to the MCU as an entirely different character.

Variety is reporting that Chan is in negotiations to join the cast of Eternals. However, the report goes on to add that “it’s unknown if she will be playing [Minn-Erva] in [Eternals]. Variety also notes that its sources say her role could be “completely different.”

Why would Marvel bring Chan back in a new role? Presumably to capitalize on her rising fame. Chan’s appearance in Crazy Rich Asians greatly elevated her visibility, while Minn-Erva was a relatively minor character in Captain Marvel. If Chan does return, she would probably have a larger role than her previous stint in the MCU. It’s also worth noting that Sersi, the female lead of The Eternals comics, has yet to be cast. Perhaps that part could go to Chan, if it remains open.

Additionally, Collider is reporting that Barry Keoghan is also joining Eternals in an undisclosed role. Keoghan most recently appeared in HBO’s Chernobyl miniseries.

Within the Marvel Universe, the Eternals are a nearly immortal offshoot from humanity who were created by the Celestials. Angelina Jolie and Richard Madden are headlining the film as Thena and Ikaris, respectively. Kumail Nanjiani co-stars as Kingo, with Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Salma Hayek as Ajak,  Lia McHugh as Sprite, and Don Lee as Gilgamesh.

Chloe Zhao is directing Eternals from a script by Matthew K. Firpo and Ryan Firpo. It will hit theaters on November 6, 2020.
