Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has weighed in on speculation that Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown may appear in a future Marvel movie, after fans linked her and Hong Kong superstar Donnie Yen with the forthcoming superhero adaptation The Eternals.
It was claimed that Brown had been cast as a gender-swapped version of the Eternals character Sprite, who has been historically written in Marvel lore as an 11-year-old boy with magical powers.
Asked by ComicBook.com about the rumours, Feige cryptically responded: “Both good actors that would be fun to see in the MCU. But nothing specific, or nothing to talk about.”
He also addressed Marvel’s unusual secrecy over their future film projects, with neither Scarlett Johansson’s in-progress Black Widow spin-off nor The Eternals having received release dates or official confirmation of their existence.
Despite the secrecy, The Eternals has been casting up ahead of its September start date, under the direction of filmmaker Chloe Zhao. Based on comics created in 1976 by Jack Kirby, the Eternals are a race of ancient human beings with superhuman powers and the ability to manipulate cosmic energy with their minds.
