Heres what we know about the project so far/
What is Marvels The Eternals?
The characters are a fictional species of humanity who made their first appearance in comic book form in 1976, created by writer and artist Jack Kirby.
According to the story they are a bunch of super-powered, near immortal beings who were created as a result of genetic experiments on early humans by a bunch of cosmic gods known as the Celestials.
The characters protect the human race, especially from the Deviants, a race who were also created by the experiments but who are the complete opposite, being unstable and grotesque-looking.
Both sides have been locked in a never-ending war since their creation – although its pretty hard to kill an Eternal, given their near-immortality.
Their super-powers include superhuman strength, the ability to fly, read minds, generate illusions and teleport.
Who is Angelina Jolie playing in the film?
Angelinas character has yet to be confirmed, as its still pretty early days on the project.
The actress will be seen next in Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil, the sequel to the 2014 hit, which will once again see her playing the title character.
