Gemma Chan in talks for Marvel's The Eternals

Gemma Chan Might Join THE ETERNALS

But given Chan's post-Crazy Rich Asians star power, continuity may not be Marvel's biggest concern. It is unclear whether she will play Minn-Erva again, or will be a totally different character.

When an actor who has previously been seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is cast in another MCU movie, the assumption is that they'll be playing the same character. Not only does the film mark the entry of Angelina Jolie and Richard Madden into the MCU world, but The Eternals also stars Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, Lia McHugh and Don Lee.

Chan played Minn-Erva in "Captain Marvel", but she would reportedly take on a completely new role in "The Eternals".

This would essentially make her the first major MCU film actor to play multiple roles in Marvel's shared cinematic universe, though not the only one.

This already looks like quite an intimidating star cast, which is about to add a few more names to it.

According to the site, the actor Barry Keoghan ( Dunkirk ) is in final negotiations to get on board the project in an unspecified role in the cinefumetto that will bear the signature of the director Chloe Zhao. Let us know your views in the comments section below.

Variety writes "Earlier this year, Chan portrayed Minn-Erva in Captain Marvel, but its unknown if she will be playing the same role in The Eternals".

The film is thought to centre around Sersi, a fourth-generation member of the group born during the Hyborean Age who can manipulate cosmic energy to give her virtual immortality, invulnerability and molecular manipulation.

Filming on The Eternals is expected to begin later this year after Black Widow wraps production. They created two races, the Eternals and the Deviant who are constantly in conflicts as time goes on.

The Eternals will hit theaters November 6, 2020.
