Oscar Nominated actress Salma Hayek is in talks to join Marvel’s The Eternals, according to The Wrap.
The Mexican actress best known for her roles in Frida, From Dusk Till Dawn and The Hitman’s Bodyguard would be the icing on the cake for The Eternals, which already boasts an impressive cast in Angelina Jolie (Maleficent), Richard Madden (The Bodyguard) and Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick). The role Hayek will play is being kept under wraps.
The Rider director Chloe Zhao will helm the film from a script written by Matthew and Ryan Firpo (Ruin). Marvel president Kevin Feige will produce.
The Eternals were created by Jack Kirby in 1976, the comic books are set millions of years in the past, the Eternals are an evolutionary offshoot of humanity created by Celestials who genetically experimented on humans to create super-powered individuals known as the Eternals, along with the villainous Deviants.
