Two-time Marvel actress Gemma Chan has announced that her filming for the studio's team-based superhero film THE ETERNALS has officially wrapped. News of Chan polishing off her participation arrives via Twitter, where the actress recently posted a celebratory pic of herself to mark the momentous occassion.

Previously Chan's Eternals co-star, Richard Madden, announced that his scenes were also complete, which now leaves Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Kumail Nanjiani, Brian Tyrese Henry, Dong-seok Ma, Lauren Ridloff, and Lia McHugh to follow suit.

In Chan's photo (posted below), the EX MACHINA and CAPTAIN MARVEL actress can be seen wearing a black hoodie as well as an official Eternals cap hat. While facing the camera, Chan snapped the photo mirror selfie-style, the brim of the headgear obscuring her eyes from view. To caption the photo, Chan wrote, "It's a wrap." With Marvel's Eternals film still shrouded in mystery, one can only ponder the wonders she's seen since the project's July 2019 production start.

Here is Marvel's official description for THE ETERNALS:

Marvel Studios' The Eternals features an exciting new team of Super Heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ancient aliens who have been living on Earth in secret for thousands of years. Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, an unexpected tragedy forces them out of the shadows to reunite against mankind's most ancient enemy, The Deviants.

The outstanding ensemble cast include Richard Madden as the all-powerful Ikaris, Gemma Chan as humankind-loving Sersi, Kumail Nanjiani as the cosmic-powered Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as the super-fast Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as the intelligent inventor Phastos, Salma Hayak as the wise and spiritual leader Ajak, Lia McHugh as the eternally young, old-coul Sprite, Don Lee as the powerful Gilgamesh, Barry Keoghan as the aloof longer Druig, and Angelina Jolie as the fierce warrior Thena. Kit Harrington was cast as Dane Whitman.

Directing THE ETERNALS from a script penned by Ryan and Matthew Firpo is THE RIDER and SONGS MY BROTHER TAUGHT ME helmer Chloé Zhao. Based on the 1976 comic book series created by Jack Kirby, The Eternals are often described as an offshoot of the transformative process that created sentient life on Earth. According to Marvel lore, The Eternals were intended to be defenders of Earth by their creators, The Celestials. In time, an opposing force known as the Deviants were introduced as a way to secure the destruction of the goodly-natured beings.

Marvel's THE ETERNALS will arrive in theaters on November 20, 2020.
