It seems as if the casting news is heating up for Marvel’s The Eternals that is set to go into production this summer. First a director was announced in Chloe Zhao, then most recently it was announced that Academy Award winner would be joining the frey. Now seemingly you can add Academy Award nominated writer (for The Big Sick along with his wife Emily V. Gordon) , Kumail Nanjiani to the bunch.
Nothing is set in stone but it seems as if it is indeed a done deal. No word from Nanjiani or Marvel Studios as to whom he would be portraying in the film.
The Eternals is going to be set millions of years in the past when the cosmic beings known as the Celestials genetically experimented on humans to create super-powered individuals known as the Eternals along with the villainous Deviants.
The two groups went on to battle each other throughout history. The Eternals also warred with Greek, Roman, and Norse deities before leaving Earth to explore the stars.
