Richard Madden in Talks to Join Marvel Studios’ ‘The Eternals’ (Exclusive)
“Game of Thrones” and “Bodyguard” star Richard Madden is in talks to star opposite Angelina Jolie and Kumail Nanjiani in Marvel’s “The Eternals,” which focuses on a group of ancient human beings, an individual with knowledge of the project exclusively told TheWrap. Details about Madden’s character is being kept under wraps.
According to ComicVine, the Celestials accelerated the evolution of a handful of subjects and gave them the genetic potential to mentally manipulate limited quantities of cosmic energy, as well as other superhuman traits.
“We have started working on what are the films post-phase 3,” Feige previously told TheWrap, referencing the forthcoming fourth part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s slate of movies after the wind-down of franchises based on the original Avengers.
Best known for playing Robb Stark on “Game of Thrones,” and following that up with BBC thriller “Bodyguard,” Madden will next be seen in Paramount’s Elton John biopic “Rocketman,” playing John’s longtime manager, John Reid.
