Angelina Jolie reveals that she turned down another big superhero role before joining Eternals, but the actress won’t name the role she was offered.
Angelina Jolie reveals that she turned down a big superhero film before signing up to star in Eternals. Marvel Studios’ next blockbuster will introduce a whole new team of superheroes who have been on Earth for thousands of years. Directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Chloé Zhao, the film boasts a star-studded cast, including Jolie, who plays one of the Eternals, Thena.
Announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, Eternals has been delayed multiple times due to the coronavirus pandemic, as with the rest of MCU’s confirmed slate. Fortunately, however, it wrapped principal photography before COVID-19 became a global problem. Since then, two trailers have already been released for the movie, dropping clues as to what eager fans can expect from it. Created by the Celestials, the Eternals are powerful beings who are essentially immortal. Given this, the blockbuster’s story will span thousands of years, although the main narrative will take place shortly after the events of Avengers: Endgame. Specifics of the film’s plot are still under wraps, and it’s safe to say that they will stay that way until Eternals rolls out in theaters in November.
