ETERNALS Star Angelina Jolie Says She's Training Hard To "Give The MCU The Thena They Deserve"

We found out that Angelina Jolie would be playing Thena in Marvel's Eternals at San Diego Comic-Con last week, and now the actress has shared an update on her preparation for the role. Check it out...

Despite initial reports that Angelina Jolie had been cast as Sersi in Marvel's Eternals movie, it was revealed at SDCC last week that the highly in-demand actress would actually be playing Thena.

Thena, aka Azura, is a battle-tested, highly-skilled fighter with numerous superhuman abilities (she's been referred to as Marvel's take on Wonder Woman), and during an interview with USA Today, Jolie revealed that her preparation for the role requires a lot of physical training in "everything from swords to ballet."

"She's a warrior," Jolie says of her character. "I'm going to have to work very hard to give the Marvel Cinematic Universe the Thena they deserve."

In the comics, Thena emerges as the Eternals' leader, but we know that role will be filled by Salama Hayek's Ajak in the movie... at least initially!

Marvel's Eternals is set for release on November 6, 2020 and will also star Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Dong-seok Ma as Gilgamesh, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, and Richard Madden as Ikaris.
