Chloe Zhao Will Direct ‘The Eternals’

Marvel’s next big franchise is still happening, despite some shakeups on the cosmic side of the MCU lately, as The Eternals officially has a director!

Variety reports that The Rider director Chloe Zhao will direct The Eternals from the script that is being written by Matthew and Ryan Firpo and Kevin Feige of course producing it.

MCU Cosmic was the first site to break the news about The Eternals being Marvel’s next big MCU franchise back in April. Back then I was told the movie was set for 2021 or 2022, so it’s not known how the delay of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 may have affected it. With a director being hired, it’s entirely possible it’s been moved up, but there’s no confirmation of that yet.
