Eternals, The: Marve’s Film, Directed by Chloe Zhao (Sundance Fest’s The Rider)

After earning critical acclaim for her Sundance film The Rider, director Chloe Zhao will helm a big- budget film, The Eternals, for Marvel.

Matthew and Ryan Firpo will pen the script, with Marvel president Kevin Feige producing.

Created by Jack Kirby, the story of “The Eternals” is set millions of years ago when the cosmic beings known as the Celestials genetically experimented on humans, creating the super-powered individuals as well as more villainous off-shoots known as the Deviants.

The two groups went on to battle each other throughout history to see which would eventually become the ultimate race.

This fits into the Marvel’s next phase along with Captain Marvel, which released its recent trailer to huge acclaim earlier this week.
