Barry Keoghan will also play Druig, who is a villain. Druig is part of the plans for the Eternals franchise.
Gemma Chan joining this franchise in a larger role could point to her character Sersi taking a major role within the new phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the comics, Sersi becomes an Avenger.
Well, the cast is stacked. The Eternals will be directed by Chloe Zhao. Coming from a script by Matthew K. Firpo and Ryan Firpo.
