Junkies, the word came in late Saturday and we have a full official cast list for The Eternals. In doing our research, on who is playing who, we noticed some gender-swapping of the characters. We are not opposed to this as this is the case in the modern era of superheroes. We really aren't married to these characters either. In fact, it will be interesting to see what Marvel Studio brings to The Eternals. Director Chloé Zhao (Rider (2017) and the upcoming Nomadland (2020)), isn't a genre director. In fact, she has no superhero credit to her name in any capacity. In many ways, The Eternals could be the next Guardians of the Galaxy. Which as we know, fans of the genre came to because it was a Marvel movie; with no preconception of who the characters were.
Below you find the cast of The Eternals film as well as some suggested reading before the film arrives. #AFJ4LIFE
