‘Eternals’ Adds Another Actor to the Cast

Spider-Man: Far from Home may be coming out in exactly two weeks but my eyes are already set on Marvel’s next Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-like standalone film which will focus on brand new characters based off of the comics about The Eternals, an ancient race of extremely powerful beings created by the Celestials.

(If you’re wondering what a Celestial is don’t worry. You already unknowingly know. If you watched Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 then you know about Ego, Peter Quill’s father. Ego was a Celestial.)

How the movie will figure into the current MCU, I have no idea, and what will the film be about, that I don’t know as well, but I do know one thing…it’s going to be awesome. And the cast is growing with each passing month.

As of right now Angelina Jolie (Maleficent: Mistress of Evil), Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick), and Dong-seok Ma (Train to Busan) is starring in the film but another actor has joined their ranks.


Richard Madden, who currently stars in Rocketman and won a Golden Globe for his role in the hit drama, Bodyguard, is bringing his talents to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to IMDb, he’s rumored to play Ikaris who is, I think, the leader of The Eternals. He could also very well be playing the role of Hercules who is rumored to make an appearance in Eternals which will excite a lot of fans, considering that he would be the first open LGBTQ character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Valkyrie, of course, has been revealed to be an LGBTQ character due to her bisexuality but, because her sexuality hasn’t been openly displayed in the movies, there are many fans who are still waiting to see themselves portrayed as heroes on the big screen.

Whatever the case, I can’t wait to learn and share more news with you all about Eternals.

Are you excited to see Richard Madden join the MCU family? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
