Marvel's THE ETERNALS Finds Its Director With SONGS MY BROTHER TAUGHT ME's Chloe Zhao

Well, that was fast! We only found out that Marvel Studios was planning an Eternals movie fairly recently, but it's now been announced that Chloe Zhao (The Rider) will helm the project. More past the jump.

According to THR, Marvel Studios has tapped Chloe Zhao to direct the studio's next potential franchise, The Eternals.

The script from Matthew and Ryan Firpo is said to focus on "super-powered and near-immortal beings known as Eternals and a more monstrous off-shoot known as the Deviants that were created by cosmic beings known as Celestials." The report also confirms that the main characters will be Ikaris, "a man fueled by cosmic energy," and Sersi, "who relishes moving amongst humans."

Zhao garnered acclaim for indie flicks The Rider and Songs My Brothers Taught Me, and was actually on Marvel's radar to helm the Black Widow movie before Cate Shortland landed the gig.

Apparently, Nicole Kassell (HBO's Watchmen pilot) Travis Knight (Bumblebee), and Birds of Passage duo Cristina Gallego and Ciro Guerra were also in contention to 
direct The Eternals
