Fresh off the stunning third season of Stranger Things, Millie Bobby Brown is now heading to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
As per Variety, the young actress has signed on to join Marvel Studios’ The Eternals. There’s not information just yet on which character Brown will be playing, but she joins a cast that currently features Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani and Ma Dong-seok, with Salma Hayek also in talks.
The Eternals is one of only a few new MCU movies confirmed in the post-Endgame landscape, and a whole lot of new MCU information is expected once San Diego Comic-Con kicks off next week.
Created by the iconic Jack Kirby back in 1976, the Eternals comic book title was based around a race of age-old humans created by the alien Celestials with the plan being for these humans to serve as Earth’s protectors against the nefarious Deviants. The big-screen Eternals will reportedly be based around the Sersi character who is an energy-manipulating being who is pretty much immortal.
To be directed by Chloe Zhao, The Eternals is currently pencilled in for a 2020 release.
