(Newser) – She's played a video game adventurer, a fairy tale villain, and a comic book assassin; now Angelina Jolie might be adding superhero to the list. She's in talks to star in Marvel Studios' The Eternals, sources tell the Hollywood Reporter. The Jack Kirby title about near-immortal, godlike beings debuted in 1976, per Deadline. Chloe Zhao is directing the film, and sources say part of its storyline involves a romance between Ikaris, who's fueled by cosmic energy, and Sersi, who likes to walk among humans. The Marvel Studios chief has previously said the movie will span eons in the lives of the characters, EW.com reports. It's not clear what character Jolie might play. (So does this mean she's not running for president?)
