Angelina Jolie is in talks to star in Marvel Studios THE ETERNALS in what would be the actress first venture into the superhero realm. Details about the movie and what character Jolie would play are being kept under wraps, reports variety.com. Created by Jack Kirby in 1976, the story of THE ETERNALS is set millions of years ago when the cosmic beings — known as the Celestials — genetically experimented on humans to create super-powered individuals — known as the Eternals — along with the villainous Deviants.

The two groups went on to battle each other throughout history. The Eternals also warred with Greek, Roman and Norse deities before leaving the Earth to explore the stars.

Chloe Zhao, whose helming credits include THE RIDER and SONGS MY BROTHER TAUGHT ME, was roped in to direct THE ETERNALS from a script by Matthew and Ryan Firpo.
