Chloe is also Asian, so Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige are certainly doing their part to help more woman and minorities land big-scale directing opportunities traditionally given to white men. In the end, Zhao came out on top, and she will be working off a script written by Matthew and Ryan Firpo, whose spec script Ruin made it onto the 2017 Black List.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, acclaimed indie director Chloe Zhao (Songs My Brother Taught Me) has landed the Eternals job, beating out other contenders who included Travis Knight (Bumblebee), Cristina Gallego and Ciro Guerra (Birds of Passage), and Nicole Kassell (who directed the pilot for HBO's upcoming Watchmen series). One of those possibilities is The Eternals, a group of immortal ancient aliens offshoots created by Jack Kirby. Previously, Zhao was considered by Marvel Studios to direct the Black Widow film, though the studio ultimately picked Cate Shortland. It was a considerably smaller film than Marvel's The Eternals, her new gig, but Marvel Studios has a good track record of hiring directors with experience on smaller films to make their biggest hits. As for the Deviants, Thanos is a member of that race in the comics.
Scientists identify earliest known animal 558 mn years ago
Previously, the oldest macroscopic animal in the geological record was the mollusc-like Kimberella from 555 million years ago. Finding this particular specimen was a grueling task, said Ilya Bobrovskiy , co-author of the paper and a PhD student at ANU.
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. However, the script will reportedly focus on the love story between the cosmically powered Ikaris and Sersi, an Eternal who lives among humans. Marvel is no doubt looking to expand its franchise holdings after that, though, and since the Inhumans were used in a poorly received ABC television series, the Eternals could fill the need for another superteam in the universe.
