Angelina Jolie is seen for the first time on the set of Marvel movie Eternals

Angelina Jolie was pictured for the first time on the set of new Marvel movie Eternals on Friday as she took on the role of Thena, a member of the superhero group. 

She looked worlds apart from her usual self as she wore a flowing blonde wig and white dress to wade out into a lake in England to scatter some ashes in ethereal scenes.

Angelina, 44, is set to join Salma Hayek, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Scarlett Johansson and Don Lee in The Eternals, which is due out in November 2020.

Blonde ambition: Angelina Jolie was seen for the first time on the set of Marvel movie Eternals in the UK and is pictured wading into a lake to spread some ashes (but whose are they?)

Stunning: Angelina looked picture perfect as she took direction from a man wearing a wetsuit

At the panel dedicated to Marvel during San Diego Comic Con, Angelina said: '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.

'We’ve all read the script and we know what the task is and so we are going to work very, very hard,' she added, according to JustJared. 

Fellow cast-member Scarlett is set to reprise her role as Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, for a spin-off prequel film after her character met her untimely end in Avengers: Endgame.

Wading in: Angelina plays Thena, a member of the superhero group and was pictured in a white dress, surrounded by the crew as filming commenced 

Once a director: Angelina surveyed the footage when back on dry land and was wearing scuba diving shoes so she could walk into the water 

Angelina wrapped up warm in a padded jacket as she took a break in between takes 

One big operation: A wide shot shows just how many people were involved in shooting the one scene 

She previously gushed that it's 'very exciting' to have Angelina Jolie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

The actress, 34, shared her delight over news that the 44-year-old will appear in The Eternals with E! News on Sunday, and said 'it's about time' there were more female stars in the sprawling franchise.

Also discussing Salma Hayek and Rachel Weisz's casting in the MCU, as well as Tessa Thompson and Natalie Portman's roles, she said: 'It was amazing. 

'I mean, there’s a lot of women up there that I hugely admire... It’s bananas. 

'I think it’s very exciting. I think it grounds the presence of the MCU in a way. It’s very exciting to see such a diverse group of people. It’s awesome. And it’s about time.' 

Keeping warm: Angelina carried what looked like a hot water bottle in her hand as she made sure to keep warm

It's all going on: A big fire was created later in the day, with plumes of smoke coming off it
