According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chloe Zhao (Songs My Brother Taught Me) has been tapped to direct the upcoming Marvel’s The Eternals adaptation. Marvel Studios hopes for the film to be their next surprise hit, with a script by Matthew and Ryan Firpo, said to focus on “super-powered and near-immortal beings known as Eternals and a more monstrous off-shoot known as the Deviants that were created by cosmic beings known as Celestials.” Of course, Thanos being a deviant, would be a great way to keep his character in the MCU-proper.

The report also confirms that the main characters will be Ikaris, “a man fueled by cosmic energy,” and Sersi, “who relishes moving amongst humans.” While directors Travis Knight (Bumblebee) and Nicole Kassell (HBO’s Watchmen pilot) were also in contention for the director’s chair.
