In recent times, we witnessed a transition in Hollywood. Our favorite stars are slowly getting older, and many emerging young actors are taking over the film industry. And when we talk about popular newcomers in Hollywood, one cannot forget Millie Bobby Brown. The Stranger Things star is one of today’s most renowned and bankable actors. And at the mere age of 18, the British actress has achieved what many can only dream of.
Over the past few years, Brown has become a global phenomenon. Owing to her incredible performance in the sci-fi series Stranger Things, Brown’s prominence has sharply risen in Hollywood. Furthermore, the actress even produced and starred in the detective drama Enola Holmes, featuring Henry Cavill as Sherlock Holmes. While Brown has starred in various roles, one genre that she is yet to explore is the comic book genre. So, here are five roles Millie Bobby Brown can play in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
What MCU characters would Millie Bobby Brown be a perfect fit for?
The comic book genre, as we all know, is massive. While there are many films and shows in that genre, a plethora of characters and untold stories still remain. And a handful of roles would fit Brown like a glove.
1) Spider Gwen
Many of you might know of Spider-Gwen through the several Spiderman animation films she has featured in. While the character is a part of the Spiderman universe, it is yet to have a live-action adaptation. Considering Brown’s fan following, the actress playing Spider-Gwen would be very beneficial to the MCU. Moreover, the Enola Holmes star would make a great acting duo alongside Tom Holland. An individual Spider-Gwen film featuring Brown will surely be exciting.
2) Power Princess
Power Princess is Marvel’s equivalent of DC’s Wonder Woman. Similar to her DC counterpart, Power Princess is a powerhouse with a warrior upbringing. She also enjoys several superpowers. Considering Brown’s performance in Enola Holmes, the actress would be an excellent fit for this warrior character. It would be interesting to witness how the British actress would create her own niche, similar to Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman.
3) Dark Phoenix
Another apt character for the Stranger Things breakout is Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey, a.k.a Dark Phoenix. Dark Phoenix is a crucial part of the MCU and starred in many X-Men films. However, despite having such an interesting character arc, Dark Phoenix never got the attention it deserved. Meanwhile, an actress like Brown can indeed play a huge part in popularising the character.

Currently, Game Of Thrones fame Sophie Turner stars as Dark Phoenix in the movies. Interestingly, many of you might not know, but Brown had auditioned for a role in the popular HBO series Game Of Thrones. During her appearance on the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, the 18-year-old actress revealed that she almost quit acting after not landing a role in the series.
4) Invisible Woman
Susan Storm, a.k.a. Invisible Woman, is a prominent member of the Fantastic Four team. As we all know, X-Men and Fantastic Four Team are all set to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, as of late, there are no updates on the casting. Strange as it may sound, there is an exciting crossover between the character and Brown’s breakout role, Eleven.

Both the characters share similar force field powers. Furthermore, considering how well Brown works in an ensemble of actors, the Godzilla vs Kong star would be a good choice for Invisible Woman.
5) Black Cat
Although the Spider-Man comics enjoy some of the greatest women superheroes, we have not witnessed any of them in a live-action adaptation. One of them is Black Cat. Simply put, Black Cat’s prominence in the Spiderman comics is somewhat similar to Catwoman for Batman. Apparently, the character of Black Cat is somewhat of an anti-heroine who later gains psychic powers allowing her to keep up with Spiderman.
Playing a character like Black Cat would surely put Brown’s acting abilities to the test since it is a type of role the actress has never starred in.

Previously too, the rumors of Brown following Cavill’s footsteps into the MCU were making the rounds. However, as of late, there are no updates on whether Brown will make her MCU debut. Meanwhile, watching Brown step into the superhero genre would undoubtedly be fascinating.
