Millie Bobby Brown & Kumail Nanjiani Address The Eternals Rumors

Earlier this week, a story originating in Variety linked Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown to a starring role in Marvel’s The Eternals. It caught fire so quickly that Brown felt the need to address it herself.

Via CBR, Brown denied the report while sharing a video on her Instagram account.

“Everybody thinks that I’m going to be in a Marvel movie. Not that I know of!” said Brown. “My family and I have no idea, so I just want to let everyone know that I’m not as of right now.”

“Right now” might give Brown some wiggle room if she ends up signing with the film. It should be noted that Variety is rarely wrong about casting reports. We may find out if Brown is in the movie as soon as next week when Marvel Studios returns to Comic-Con’s Hall H.

Meanwhile, Kumail Nanjiani was interviewed by Variety about his upcoming film, Stuber. And when asked about the rumors linking him to The Eternals, Nanjiani didn’t exactly deny it.

“I cannot comment on that,” said Nanjiani. “It would be so great to be part of a superhero film. I would love it so much.”

Variety also noted that Nanjiani is currently working out with a personal trainer, which could either be a lifestyle choice or part of preparations for his next part.

The Eternals doesn’t currently have a release date, but it may be in theaters in late 2020.
