Richard Madden may play Ikaris in Marvel’s The Eternals


Richard Madden (Game of Thrones, Bodyguard) is in talks to join Angelina Jolie, Ma Dong-seok and Kumail Nanjiani in Marvel’s The Eternals.

The Eternals, created by Jack Kirby, centers on the super-powered near-god beings The Celestials and their villainous adversaries the Deviants in a war set millions of years ago. The Celestials experimented on humans creating both races of immortal spinoffs. The Eternals also battled with Greek, Roman and Norse deities before leaving Earth to explore the stars.

If things go through he will be playing IkarisIkaris was born over 20,000 years ago in Polaria, in the area now known as Siberia. He is the son of the Eternals Virako and Tulayn. His real birth name is unknown. When the Second Host of the Celestials sank the Deviant Lemuria in what is known as the “Great Cataclysm,” Ikaris guides a ship of humans to safety. The humans mistake Ikaris for a bird, and (per Marvel Universe history) he is memorialized as the dove that guided Noah to the Mountains of AraratWiki.

It is thought that Jolie will be playing Sersi and THR report that one aspect of the plot involves the love story between Ikaris, a man fueled by cosmic energy, and Sersi, who relishes moving amongst humans.

Written by Matthew and Ryan Firpo (Ruin) the film will be directed by Chloé Zhao (The Rider).
