THE ETERNALS Reportedly Adds Ma Dong-Seok

Production on Marvel Studios The Eternals is set to begin later on this year. First there was news that Angelina Jolie and Kumail Nanjiani have signed on for key roles, and now it is being reported by The Wrap that Korean actor Ma Dong-seok (Train To Busan, The Outlaws) will make his American film debut in the cosmic superhero flick.

Now of Course Marvel Studios has not revealed any information as whom exactly Dong-Seok would be portraying but it is believed that Jolie may be portraying Sersi.

Since we are talking about The Eternals, That Hashtag Show has heard that Marvel and director Chloe Zhao are specifically looking for an openly gay/bisexual Asian actor in his twenties to play “James.”More than likely that’s not the character’s real name but he’s described as “intellectual, emotional, and has a strong sense of family.” Apparently, How To Get Away With Murder actor Conrad Ricamora is being eyed for the part.
