With principal photography on Eternals expected to begin later this month, star Richard Madden teased that there are additional casting announcements to be made for the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film.
Speaking with British GQ after winning the Hugo Boss Most Stylish Man Award, Madden was asked about whether or not he gets star struck by some his co-stars for Eternals. He candidly confirmed that he still gets stunned, adding that there are a few more actors who have joined the film who are just waiting to be announced. “I always get starstruck, yeah. And there’s some more actors yet to be announced in that lineup, which is gonna be crazy,” Madden said.
Madden, who plays Ikaris in the film, confirmed he knew the identities of the unannounced cast members and expressed excitement over his on-screen reunion with fellow Game of Thrones co-star Kit Harington. With actors like Keanu Reeves rumored to join the MCU for sometime, more iconic Hollywood actors could be announced for the cosmic film in the near future.
Directed by Chloé Zhao with a screenplay by Matthew and Ryan Firpo, Eternals stars Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, Angelina Jolie as Thena, Barry Keoghan as Druig, Gemma Chan as Sersi and Kit Harington as Dane Whitman, aka the Black Knight. The film arrives in theaters on Nov 6, 2020.
