Chloe Zhao Will Take on Jack Kirby’s The Eternals

Marvel Studios has found their director for The Eternals in Chloe Zhao. The film is based on the creations by Jack Kirby. The script is by Matthew and Ryan Firpo.

The concept is near-immortal beings known as Eternals and monstrous off-shoots known as Deviants, both created by cosmic beings known as Celetials. Created in 1976 by Kirby, the concept was influenced by such works as Chariots of the Gods which explored ancient gods and aliens.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that one aspect of the story will involve “the love story etween Ikaris, a man fueled by cosmic energy, and Sersi, who relishes moving amongst humans.”

The concept of the Eternals have been hinted at in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Thanos being on himself and some vision of their world is shown in Avengers: Infinity War and Knowhere in Guardians of the Galaxy is the head of a Celestial.

Zhao has been on Marvel’s radar for a while and was one of the directors considered for the standalone Black Widow film.

The film is believed to be part of Marvel’s Phase 4 which will begin after the sequel to Avengers: Infinity War.
