In a recent with Variety, Marvel’s Studio Executive Kevin Feige gave a bit of look into this movie, specifically Chan’s role as Sersi as the lead.

When it came to casting, that also did affect it. There were some characters that we change from male to female, there were some characters that we knew how we were altering them from the books. But then also it came down to casting, So, for Sersi, for instance – and if there was a lead in this ensemble, it is Sersi, it is Gemma Chan – we looked at and read all sorts of women for that part. And ended up really believing that Gemma was best for it. And thankfully, she’s proven that to be the case in the final movie.

In the comics, Sersi is an ancient being who has been a member of the Eternals and alive for centuries. In modern times, she’s a New York girl who hosts lavish parties for the rich and famous. This news is not only exciting for Gemma Chan but also for us Marvel fanatics to dig deeper as to what it means for this upcoming film.


Though there are a lot of questions from Marvel fanatics on whether Chan’s character will have an association with the Avengers. Will that mean we maybe see parts of Sersi’s history and her involvement with the avengers in the movie? Will the movie focus on Sersi’s centuries before the time? Frankly speaking, no one knows? These questions remain to be answered when the movie lands on the big screen.


One thing for sure, is that as Marvel fanatics, we’re all excited with Gemma Chan’s performance in the movie and surely we will all be in for a treat. So, let’s keep it at that!
