    Personally, I am constantly distracted, albeit briefly and not necessarily negatively, when anyone I’m familiar with shows up on screen when I wasn’t aware that they were going to be in it. For example, Tommy Lee Jones in Captain America or Peter Dinklage in Infinity War. When Kevin Bacon showed up in First Class I shrieked giddily.

    As far as the main actors that I knew were going to be starring/appearing in any given MCU film, it makes no difference to me how big of a star they are and I see the actor unless they COMPLETELY disappear in the role. Brolin as Thanos, Ledger as Joker, I would even say Gary Oldman as Gordon, just to give a few comic book movie examples. But anyways, I guess if the films were FILLED with unknowns then it would be jarring to have a big star show up, but as it stands it doesn’t bother me.

    I wonder if she’ll be playing the same character from Captain Marvel or an entirely new character?

    The rumor was that The Eternals would be set in the past, or that it would span a long period of history, so either is a possibility.

    Good catch. Deadline's story only mentioned Crazy Rich Asians, and I (temporarily) forgot that she was in Captain Marvel.

    Slashfilm says it will be a different role, but I'm not sure where they're getting that information.

    I feel like if it is a different character, she will need to be made up to look and sound different. Otherwise, it kind of breaks the illusion of the MCU if the same person looks and sounds exactly the same playing multiple major roles. The only other one I can think of is Peter's principal in Homecoming was also in The First Avenger, but they acknowledged that by including photos and making the Homecoming character a descendant of his First Avenger one.

    I think it would probably be easier to pull of than usual because her role was small in Captain Marvel and she was blue. As long as she isn’t playing another blue character I’d bet 99% of the audience would never make the connection.

    Good point. They'll probably also vary her voice a bit.

    I was watching Iron Man 2 the other day and noticed Kate Mara and Olivia Munn in blink and you'll miss them roles. Seems a shame to exclude them from future MCU projects just because of a cameo. Both were also in non-MCU Marvel films.

    I also recall watching Captain Marvel and thinking that they wasted Gemma Chan in such a small role. Glad to see she may be coming back.

    Some of the twitter chatter suggests Gemma may be playing a lead role, either Sersi or Karen (names are from a casting call sheet released a while ago).
