The Eternals (Chloé Zhao, 20??)

#1 Post by Kirkinson » Fri Sep 21, 2018 2:29 pm

Chloe Zhao (!) will direct Marvel's The Eternals
Variety wrote:Created by Jack Kirby, the story of “The Eternals” is set millions of years ago when the cosmic beings known as the Celestials genetically experimented on humans, creating the super-powered individuals as well as more villainous off-shoots known as the Deviants.

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

Have seen neither of her films but I dont think ive ever seen a theoretically larger discrepancy between a director's style and what is asked of her.
Will she find someone who was experimented on and cast them? Will this be the first naturalistic and realistic Marvel film? So many questions

Jesus... good for her, financially speaking at least, but this is just a shade off from an Onion headline satirizing how the superhero-industrial complex swallows all potential talent like a black hole.

Finally saw The Rider, trying to wrap my head around Chloe Zhao doing The Eternals.

I hope it's all non-actors and Malick-by-way-of-Safdies stylings.
