It is not yet known which superhero role the Academy Award winner is tipped to play, but it looks like she will be in good company, with Chloe Zhao set to direct the film and Matthew and Ryan Firpo writing the screenplay.

The Eternals, based on the comic, is centred around a species of cosmic humanity, that were created five million years ago, living on earth and shaping its history and civilisations.

There’s no news yet as to who else could potentially be joining the cast, but if Angelina Jolie gets onboard, we’re sure other A-list actors will soon follow.

An Angelina Jolie performance combined with a Marvel film – we officially cannot wait for this one.
