"I always get starstruck, yeah," Madden admitted in a red carpet interview with GQ Britain. "And there's some more actors yet to be announced in that lineup, which is going to be crazy."
Madden, who plays Ikaris in the film, confirmed he knew the identities of the unannounced cast members and expressed excitement over his on-screen reunion with fellow Game of Thrones co-star Kit Harington. With actors like Keanu Reeves rumored to join the MCU for sometime, more iconic Hollywood actors could be announced for the cosmic film in the near future.
Directed by Chloé Zhao with a screenplay by Matthew and Ryan Firpo, Eternals stars Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, Angelina Jolie as Thena, Barry Keoghan as Druig, Gemma Chan as Sersi and Kit Harington as Dane Whitman, aka the Black Knight. The film arrives in theaters on Nov 6, 2020.
