"The Eternals" looks to the North.
Marvel's "Infinity Saga" has come to an end, with Endgame acting as a climactic chapter. Without delving too deep into SPOILER territory, it's safe to say that the landscape of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has shifted, with several key players taking a backseat. As it happens, the Universe will be looking to bring a whole new collective of heroes (and sweet, sweet merchandising dollars) into the forefront, beginning with The Eternals. News of the upcoming film has already started buzzing, including the casting of both Angelina Jolie and Kumail Nanjiani. Now, TheWrap has reported that Richard Madden, of Game Of Thrones and The Bodyguard fame, is in talks to join the saga.

While the story will reportedly center around Sersi, who will likely be portrayed by Angelina Jolie. It's unclear as to who Madden will be playing, as details are being kept under wraps. Still, it's likely that The Eternals will be another wild ride, not entirely dissimilar to the launch of Guardians Of The Galaxy. Obscure characters, a charismatic cast, and a vast intergalactic setting. Do you think this one will have legs upon arrival?
Either way, it's nice to see the original King In The North ride again. Secure the Marvel bag, Richard Madden.
