    Two trades, first The Hollywood Reporter and now The Wrap, are saying that she's up for the part. Here's the latest from the latter.

    Eh, don't take IMDB as some absolute confirmation.

    She'd be an interesting choice for Sersi, but given the casting of big name actors for mentor/villain roles, I could see her as Elysius.

    I could dig that. Except for the supreme intelligence I don’t think we’ve seen many women mentors yet. And obviously the supreme intelligence had a bit of a twist to that that doesn’t fully make her just a mentor

    Well, technically the Supreme Intelligence was just disguising itself as Wendy Lawson/Mar-Vell. Lawson was a real mentor to Carol. But I agree that there should be more - however, is Elysius a hero or a villain? I can’t find much info on the character at all, except that’s she (interestingly) connected in some way to Mar-Vell - the male one, that is.

    Honestly, unless there has been some really new stuff done with her... There's not a lot to draw from the comics. There's no really big or important story with her as some well defined character. She was created by a Titan-Eternal super computer, was a love interest of Mar-vell and then wasn't really heard of for a long time. Then she was used to bring about Genis-Vell via artificial methods... Then Genis goes mad due to being overwhelmed by the Cosmic Consciousness, he has dealings with the cosmic being Entropy, the universe goes bye-bye and then cuz comics it's remade and Elysius who was supposed to be dead is alive again and the restarting of the universe had some new wrinkles because reasons, and now suddenly Genis had a sister also artificially created by Elysius named Phyla.

    So... She's never had too much definition as a character. More just an adjunct one to others who did get a lot of meat on their bones and spotlight.

    That said there is probably a lot of surprising things you could do with her given that she's such a blank slate.

    Nice. She is a much better Thena than Sersi. She will be amazing. I’m so glad she’s part of the mcu

    You definitely deserve props for sticking to your guns, as I and a few others were clearly mistaken here. That said, the question remains: Who the hell is playing Sersi? :argh:

    Don't think we are getting Sersi, maybe in the sequel.

    She was mentioned in the original bio for the movie. I think they’ll announce her casting at D23. I mean arguably Sersi is the most well known eternal except maybe thanos or Eros

    Yeah I wonder if the only reason they didn’t announce Cersei, Hercules, etc. is because whoever they cast in those roles couldn’t make it to SDCC.

    It could also be they've yet to be cast or aren't actually going to be a part of movie.

    I don’t know about Hercules but Sersi I would bet on her appearing. I reckon deck Rickard is right, they’re probably still settling contracts. At least we know marvel won’t stop til they get the best

    I'm confused.... Are the characters Sersi and Thena the same? Or did people just jump the gun and assume she was playing Sersi then later found out she's playing Thena? Im long time comic reader but will admit to knowing absolutely nothing about the Eternals.

    This thread is confusing to new people like me cuz it says she's playing Thena but there are four pages in here about her playing Sersi...

    IIRC a reputable site reported that Jolie would play Sersi and we all kinda believed it. Turns out it wasn't true, she's Thena.

    I am not familiar with the Eternals and particular with Thena. So will this be an action-heavy role for Jolie? What are her powers? Will Jolie have a lead or just a supporting part?

    Azura (Earth-616)

    Obviously none of us have read the script yet but I would say it’s fairly certain she will be a major supporting cast member who moves the plot forward
