A Game Of Thrones OG Will Join The Marvel Cinematic Universe As Its Latest Superhero
Marvel are definitely not messing around with Phase 4.
Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will wrap up in bombastic style with the record shattering Avengers: Endgame and the guaranteed-to-be-successful Spider-Man: Far From Home, but the comic book movie behemoth aren’t about to rest its laurels just yet.
So far we know that Marvel are toiling away on a movie about The Eternals and they’ve managed to pull off a massive coup by getting a Game Of Thrones veteran onboard to be its newest spandex-wearing superhero.
According to The Wrap, Richard Madden is in talks to star in The Eternals, which means the MCU is about to get this stupidly handsome chap as one of its newest superheroes.
Now as for who Richard will play, Variety reports that he is going to portray the character of Ikaris, who a member of the titular Eternals. This is another case of pitch perfect casting from Marvel as Ikaris is basically a regal god-like figure not unlike Thor and who better to play a part like that than someone who was literally Prince Charming.
For those wondering who The Eternals are, you’re in for a wild ride. The series basically revolves around beings called Celestials, whose experiments on early humanity resulted in heroes (the Eternals) and villains (the Deviants). If you thought Guardians Of The Galaxy was bonkers then you haven’t seen anything yet.
While we are still light years away from hearing anything about The Eternals, it is shaping up to be something special as the immensely talented Chinese filmmaker Chloe Zhao will be directing, and starring alongside Richard will be Angelina Jolie and Kumail Nanjiani.
Marvel has yet to officially announce its Phase 4 line-up of films but it is looking like the post-Endgame would is going to be in good hands.
