Variety has reported that the 15-year-old star has landed a role in the Marvel Universe film "The Eternals."

Millie Bobby Brown will be sharing the bill with Salma Hayek, Angelina Jolie and Richard Madden. As of yet, no information about her character has been revealed.

"The Eternals," the movie adaptation of Jack Kirby's namesake series of comic books (first published in 1976), should be presented at the next San Diego Comic Con, set to take place from July 18 to 21, 2019. The plot will follow cosmic beings with superpowers, the Eternals, who are fighting against their own monstrous offspring, the Deviants. Thanos, the villain from "Avengers: Endgame," is part of that same Eternals family, but nothing so far hints at his participation in the as-yet-under-development film's scenario.
