Millie Bobby Brown rose to fame after the first season of Stranger Things, but it wasn’t until the third season that the offers began to pour in. She appeared in the Godzilla franchise film Godzilla vs. Kong and even starred in and produced yet another Netflix production, Enola Holmes. However, her extraordinary fame rose to the point that her name started being associated with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It was back then when the fourth phase of MCU was in the making and the studio had announced its ambitious project Eternals. Also, Brown’s rumored association with the movie seems natural since she was at the peak of her stardom at the time. However, when the actress was questioned about it, she straightaway said, “Everybody thinks I’m going to be in a Marvel movie. Not that I know of.”

As per Comicbook, she also said that her family and friends did not have an idea of her starring in such a project. Hence, she made it clear to everyone that she was not in any way associated with the movie. She was only 15 years old back then, so she denied the rumor in the most innocent way possible. Although, she was not the only star facing the speculations of starring in the film.
