Moviegoers may not know much about The Eternals, but the cast may be full of familiar faces. The Wrap reports that Marvel Studios is in early talks with Salma Hayek for an unidentified role in the film.
Hayek would be another outstanding addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and this specific project. Should these talks result in an official signing, Hayek will join a cast that reportedly includes Kumail Nanjiani, Richard Madden, and Ma Dong-seok. Cholé Zhao (The Rider) is set to direct.
Angelina Jolie has also been in talks to join the film for a number of months, but The Hollywood Reporter notes that she still has yet to sign on.
Marvel has had lengthy negotiations with actors before, most notably Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Keaton (both eventually agreed to terms). Hopefully, Jolie’s negotiations prove to be a similar case.
The Eternals is (unofficially) slated for a November 2020 release.
