Angelina Jolie Joined Eternals Because Marvel Wants To Change How We See Superheroes

Angelina Jolie says she wanted to join Chloé Zhao’s Eternals as Thena because Marvel Studios wants to change how superheroes are perceived.

Marvel Studios wants to change how superheroes are seen in Eternals, and that’s why Angelina Jolie decided to join the project. Directed by Chloé Zhao, the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 4 film will introduce a new superhero team to the franchise. It will potentially shake up its power structure, and perhaps even its known history, since the Eternals are supposedly in existence for centuries already. Eternals boasts a talented ensemble cast including Jolie who’s playing Thena.

Not much is known about specific plot details for the movie at this point. Marvel Studios has yet to release any additional information beyond what was revealed in 2019 at San Diego Comic-Con and D23 Expo, where the company officially talked about the film. Created by the Celestials, the Eternals are powerful beings who are essentially immortals, which is why their stories span many years. The main narrative, however, will take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. Joining Jolie are Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Gemma Chan as Sersi, and Kit Harington as Black Knight, along with several others.

Opening up to British Vogue about her decision to join the MCU through Eternals, Jolie reveals Marvel Studios and Zhao want to change how audiences view superheroes. While she didn’t get into more detail about what this means, the actress sounds like she had a blast working on the movie despite this unexpected career turn.

I love this cast, and that we all came together. I signed up to support Chloé [Zhao]’s vision and Marvel’s commitment to expand the way we see “superheroes.” Running around in a gold bodysuit was not how I imagined my forties. But it’s good crazy, I think.

Jolie joining the MCU has long been one of the most surprising parts of Eternals. These latest comments, however, lend some clarity to her decision. It seems Jolie found a common goal with Marvel Studios and Zhao in signing on for Eternals. It’s hard to know for sure what the actress means by Marvel wanting to change how audiences see superheroes. However, she’s most likely referencing the company’s ongoing push for diversity and inclusion, which is an especially important aspect of Eternals.

After a few scheduling changes brought about by the coronavirus pandemic, Eternals is now slated to release in November 2021. Still, Marvel Studios has yet to begin properly promoting the film, so there hasn’t been an official close-up look at Jolie as Thena or any other characters from the movie. This is understandable considering how things easily change now due to the uncertain times. It’s still possible the MCU’s whole Phase 4 will shift again as Black Widow is once again threatened to be delayed. Nevertheless, based on what’s been said about Eternals thus far, it sounds like it’s going to be worth the wait.
