The Hollywood Reporter is saying that Angelina Jolie is on her way to getting that sweet, sweet Marvel money. Well, well, well, I’m sure it’s a coincidence that Angie is taking a break from making HIGH ART by getting Marvel money and it has nothing to do with the rumors that she’s broke.
Angie has done a bunch of action type stuff in the past, like that Russian-spy movie Salt which she stole from Tom Cruise, and she was Lara Croft, and she met Brad Pitt while playing a spy, and she’s even done a comic book movie before when she starred in Wanted. But Angelina has yet to make her way into one of those big-budget, insanely over-paid superhero movies that break the box office. Well, cross it off her bucket list because it looks like Angelina is about to star in Marvel Studios’ The Eternals.
The Eternals is an upcoming big Marvel super hero movie and it’s details make it sound like the hottest new young adult novel your niece is reading before the movie version comes out. It’s about:
“Superpowered and near-immortal beings known as Eternals and a more monstrous offshoot known as the Deviants that were created by the cosmic beings called Celestials.”
Based on a comic created by Jack Kirby, finer details about the movie are being kept hush-hush, but Chloe Zhao, an indie director with critical hits The Rider and Songs My Brothers Taught Me, will be directing and there is one detail being revealed by a source who says a part of the plot is a:
“Love story between Ikaris, a man fueled by cosmic energy, and Sersi, who relishes moving amongst humans.”
There’s no word on who Angelina Jolie will play and Marvel had no comment, but I’m sure she’ll have a terrible accent she doesn’t need.
I guess Nicole Kidman will just have to move over because there’s a new cool mom in this Comic-Book-Superhero-Movie town and her name is Angelina Jolie. Brad Pitt is going to be so mad when mom brings the kids to a Marvel premiere. Can’t wait for Amal Clooney to copy Angelina again and get cast in the new Guardians Of The Galaxy movie.
