Marvel’s ‘The Eternals’ Taps ‘The Rider’ Director Chloe Zhao

Marvel Studios’ ‘The Eternals’ Movie Gets a Director

IndieWire reports that Chloe Zhao will be the first woman with a sole directing credit on a Marvel Studios film, as Captain Marvel is being co-directed by Anna Boden with her male directing partner.

Matthew and Ryan Firpo, whose Black List script Ruin has made waves, will write the screenplay.

The team will be tackling a story about a race of super-powered beings known as The Eternals, who alongside with their monstrous enemies The Deviants, were created by cosmic beings known as Celestials.

The two groups went on to battle each other throughout history to see which would eventually become the ultimate race.

Zhao has been in high-demand for several major studio films after the critically acclaimed The Rider impressed at the Sundance Film Festival.

Created by Kirby in 1976, The Eternals are characters inspired by Erich von Däniken's Chariots of the Gods, which explored ancient gods as aliens.

Marvel Studios has hired a director for Eternals, a cosmic odyssey based on the characters introduced in 1974 by legendary creator Jack Kirby.

In the comics, the Celestials performed similar experiments on the homeworlds of alien races like the Kree and the shapeshifting Skrulls. Previously, Zhao was considered by Marvel Studios to direct the Black Widow film, though the studio ultimately picked Cate Shortland.

The Eternals will kick up the unusual factor in the MCU a few notches, past even the trippy visuals of Doctor odd, the wackiness of Thor: Ragnarok, and the absurdity of Guardians of the Galaxy. THR also say that "one aspect to the story involves the love story between Ikaris, a man fueled by cosmic energy, and Sersi, who relishes moving amongst humans". Within the Marvel Universe, Sersi had a long stint as an Avenger during the '90s.
