Marvel is reportedly planning to get cameras rolling on The Eternals at some point this year, and following the huge news that Angelina Jolie has joined the project, THR reports that Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick, Silicon Valley) is also in negotiations to come aboard.

No details on his character have been provided, but the trades does seemingly confirm that Jolie will play Sersi, "a more outgoing Eternal who has not been afraid to move amongst humankind."

Nanjiani, who was nominated for an Oscar for co-writing The Big Sick with wife Emily Gordon, can next be seen in the first Twilight Zone episode from CBS All-Access, and then on the big screen in Sony’s Men in Black: International.
