We all know the famous Robb Stark from Game of Thrones. Richard Madden played this role amazingly. Richard Madden will now be seen in the Marvel Universe in the role of the strongest Eternal named Ikaris in the upcoming Marvel movie Eternals. The cast of this movie includes Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, Kit Harington, Salma Hayek, Gemma Chan, and many more.
According to sources, in a chat, Richard was asked about his co-star in Citadel- Priyanka Chopra. Richard was asked if Priyanka Chopra would make an excellent Marvel hero. Richard Madden said, “She’d make an awesome Marvel superhero. She’s a wonderfully talented actress and she’s beautiful and she’s so strong and I think, she would nail it. Who knows? Maybe, we will see her as an Eternal one day.”
Richard Madden was also about how he felt while playing the character in Marvel Movie Eternals:
“I really loved it. I’m kind of used to playing lovers often. And to play someone who’s such a soldier, but is completely driven by love. All his decisions are driven by love and it’s actually him that’s wrestling with that. I’m used to characters who are very focused on their love and that comes out. And with Ikaris, it’s opposite of that,” Madden began.
“He’s trying to bury that love because it gets in the way of his duty and is constantly wrestling the two. And what made it really interesting for me, to pull out that relationship with all the characters from Sprite to Sersi and work out what this relationship is when you’re trying to stick to duty, but your feelings get in the way. It’s this eternal soldier wrestling that,” the Citadel star concluded. Sersi is the love interest of Ikaris(Richard Madden) in Marvel movie Eternals.

In an event, Angelina Jolie was also asked about her role in Eternals and what attracted her to it.
She began, “Oh, thank you! I was attracted to this project for many reasons. I am a fan of MCU, was a big fan of Chloe’s.”
“And then, when they first talked to me about the story, really, it was the cast. It was the idea of what this family would be. And I just wanted to be a part of this family before I even knew very much about who I was gonna play. But as I learned about Thena, and that’s one of the special things that Chloe brings to this, is she’s known for bringing reality to a film, to somebody’s true self. So, a lot of us were cast to bring out something from our own lives, something within ourselves, that maybe we weren’t even aware of. And then, let it live and let it grow within the film,” Angelina Jolie said.
Richard Madden also said that working with Kit and Gemma did not seem like work.
“It was beautiful to be back on set with a very close friend of mine. And Gemma is a very close of mine and we have this great moment of the three of us being on set together in an area of London that we hang out in, sometimes,” Madden said, “So, you have to pinch yourself and think, ‘Am I at work? Because I’m just here with my friends.'”
