No one could have predicted the meteoric rise a little Netflix show called Stranger Things would have had in pop culture. When the trailers first dropped for the show, it seemed like a promising gem for horror fans, but the series went on to capture the imaginations of mainstream audiences in an amazing way. All of a sudden, the kids involved in the production have been thrown into the public spotlight — and let’s face it, given how well they did in the first season of the show, they deserve it. But just how high will they be sent?
One of the boys, Finn Wolfhard, also snagged a leading role in this year’s It, an adaptation of the Stephen King novel of the same name. Another co-star, Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven, also signed on to 2019’s Godzilla: King of Monsters, the third film in the shared universe that includes beloved movie monsters Godzilla and King Kong. But does a recent photo imply that Brown could be headed to another big cinematic universe?
Avengers: Infinity War directors the Russo Brothers recently took to Facebook to share a photo wherein Brown can be seen sitting alongside the directors in a chair of her own. The caption reads: “Guest director Millie Bobby Brown.”
Check it out below!
Of course, plenty of fans have been wondering: what could this mean?
Well, it can mean anything…and it can mean nothing.
Let’s go through a few possibilities here.
- Brown was in the area, and the directors thought it would be fun to have her on set.
- Brown could be in Avengers: Infinity War in a surprise role
- Brown could be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the near future, and wanted the opportunity to see what making a big budget film is like
- We already know she’ll be in Godzilla 2, and maybe she wanted the opportunity to see what making a big budget film is like
So which is it? Well, given that the post has the jokey caption of “Guest director Millie Bobby Brown,” I think it’s safe to say she won’t actually be in the movie. She’s not in a costume of any sort, and if she was going to be in a role, you think they’d say something. This makes me think it’s either options 1, 3, or 4. Since Marvel Studios doesn’t tend to hint too far in advance for future characters, I’d rule out option 3 — I don’t think she’ll be in the MCU anytime soon. If she is at some point in the future, it likely won’t have anything to do with this set visit (unless this set visit is an extension of them casting her for a future role).
Finally, just by sheer gut, I would infer that it’s option 4. As mentioned, Godzilla 2 will not only be her first big budget film, but her first time in a feature film, period. Chances are her agent pulled some strings to get her on a set of similar scope so she wouldn’t be going into the process cold.
But, that’s just one writer’s opinion. What’s yours? Why do you think Millie Bobby Brown was on set? Let us know your thoughts down below!
