Richard Madden has been around for a while, but he’s planning on being an Eternal.

Marvel is developing a film based on a new set of superbeings known as The Celestials — an ancient race of humans who possess greater powers and longer life spans.

They group created offshoots of humanity called the Eternals and the Deviants in order to test the adaptability of the human gene.

The Eternals, as the name suggests, will focus on that particular sect, revolving around a love story between Ikaris, a man fueled by cosmic energy, and Sersi, who relishes moving among humans.

Angelina Jolie is reportedly in negotiations to star as Serei in the movie, directed by The Rider filmmaker Chloe Zhao, while Kumail Nanjiani of The Big Sick is also said to be in discussions.

The latest star said to be in negotiations for a role is The Bodyguard actor Richard Madden.

Marvel has remained rather quiet on the film, meaning there is no indication who Nanjiani or Madden will be playing.
