The former King in the North, Richard Madden, is in talks to join Marvel’s cinematic universe as Ikaris (a member of the Eternals) in the upcoming Phase 4 film titled The Eternals. Madden will be set to join an already star-studded cast that includes Angelina Jolie and Kumail Nanjiani, and director Chloe Zhao (the first woman of color to direct a Marvel Film). Zhao will also help write and polish the film’s script alongside Matthew and Ryan Firpo.
As with most Marvel projects, lips are sealed, but according to numerous sources, the film will feature a love story involving Ikaris (Madden) and another character by the name of Sersi (played by Jolie). Both of these characters are ‘heroes’ with superhuman abilities such as super strength, teleportation, and other powers that will be a marvel to see on screen.
