The young actress rejected the rumors during a fan Q&A on Instagram Live. “Everybody thinks I’m going to be in a Marvel movie,” said Brown. “Not that I know of. My family and I have no idea. So I just want to let everyone know…that I’m not, as of right now.”
While we do know that Kumail Nanjiani, Angelina Jolie, and Game of Thrones' Richard Madden are involved in the next Marvel Cinematic Universe epic, Brown has also been repeatedly mentioned. Her name came into the mix again after a report from Variety included her in the ensemble cast, though nothing else has implied that she’s actually in the film. Salma Hayek is also rumored to be joining the cast.
In June, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige remained cryptic when asked about the possibility of seeing Brown in an MCU film down the road, commenting she “would be fun to see in the MCU. But nothing specific, or nothing to talk about.”
According to Netflix, after just four days, Stranger Things 3 claimed the title as the most-streamed program to ever air on their platform. On July 8, the streaming giant shared that 40.7 million accounts tuned in to watch after the season was uploaded on July 4, and that nearly 45 percent of those accounts (18.2 million total) already watched all eight episodes.
