Directed by Chloé Zhao, the upcoming film, which is just one of 10 forthcoming projects, is set to debut on November 6, 2020.

“I’m so excited to be here! I think what it means to be a part of the MCU, what it means to be an Eternal, what it means to be in this family,” Jolie said on stage. “We’ve all read the script and we know what the task is and so we are going to work very, very hard.”
