Angelina Jolie in talks to star in Marvel Studios' The Eternals for director Chloe Zhao, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

While details about Jack Kirby-created adaptation are being kept under wraps, sources tell THR that "one aspect to the story involves the love story between Ikaris, a man fueled by cosmic energy, and Sersi, who relishes moving amongst humans."

The Wrap also adds their sources says the film is focused on Sersi. 

Despite what seems like an obvious connection, according to THR it is unclear on who Jolie will play. Marvel reportedly had no comment.

Jolie has an established relationship with Disney having played Maleficent in the 2014 film and its upcoming 2019 sequel Mistress of Evil. Back in 2015, Jolie was reportedly in talks to direct the then-upcoming Captain Marvel film.

Jolie played a Nick Fury-esque character in 2004's Sky Captain & The World of Tomorrow.

The Eternals is based on a script by Matthew and Ryan Firpo.

No release date has been set for The Eternals.
