Angelina Jolie Says She Is Not Interested In Solo Thena Movie



Angelina Jolie just made a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Chloe Zhao‘s Eternals, but the actress is not interested in appearing in a solo superhero movie.

In an interview for Brazilian media outlet CinePop, Jolie opened up about her experience playing her first superhero, Thena, an Eternal capable of conjuring weapons out of thin air.

When asked why she took so long to play a superhero, Jolie replied that she was waiting for the right role and that the previous proposals “didn’t seem like the right one.” However, in Eternals, Jolie felt she was doing something unique since Thena is part of a family.

As Jolie says, she “wanted to be part of this family, I wanted to see all these superheroes together.” Jolie also reveals that she joined Eternals before reading the script, and what convinced her to be a part of the project was this promise that the whole movie would revolve around the idea of ​​family, a theme that resonates with the actress.

Because she wanted to be part of the MCU’s hottest family, Jolie also says she doesn’t want to star in a Thena solo movie. Even so, she is set to play Thena again in future films if Marvel keeps her on a team. In Jolie’s words:


“I loved being part of the family so I don’t feel like separating from the family. But I would be happy to play her again and explore even more deeply the struggles she has. it’s fun to think about where they’ve been over the years. We’ve got thousands of years of material. We can take it anywhere. I think it’s fun and I love the idea that we can appear somewhere, maybe in other Marvel movies. ”

Eternals stars Gem Chan like Sersi, Richard Madden like Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani like Kingo, Lia McHugh like Sprite, Brian Tire Henri like Phastos, Lauren Ridloff like Makkari, Barry Keoghan like Druig, put on Lee like Giglamesh, Salma Hayek like Ajak, and Case Harington like Dane Withman.

The first reviews of Eternals were mixed, highlighting how the film’s epic reach sometimes gets in the way of a people-focused narrative. In his review of the film, our own Matt Goldberg said:

Eternals is a much more interesting movie trapped in the body of a superhero movie, and those limitations neutralize what could have been a gripping and thrilling experience without what the movie has to do both in its genre and in the setting. of the MCU.
