Here’s that word on the street again. Apparently, Finn Wolfhard of Stranger Things and Ghostbusters: Afterlife fame has joined the MCU.

This is also a completely unsubstantiated rumor from the internet so, as usual, this is rumor control:

Because loose lips sink ships, Marvel Studios often keep things pretty close to their chest. Just look at those Spiderman: No Way Home rumors that said Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield would be appearing – what a load of old codswallop that was!

So with Stranger Things coming to an end after season five and Finn now 19 years old and a rising star, it makes good business sense to get that skinny little runt signed into a contract a.s.a.p.

If this is true then he could soon be joining his Stranger Things co-star, David Harbour, who recently played Red Guardian in Black Widow, in the unstoppable juggernaut that is the MCU.

David Harbour
Worst. Hellboy. Ever.

Wolfhard has also expressed in past interviews that he is interested in joining the MCU (who wouldn’t) and he would love to play “Guy On Computer” as a background part in a Marvel movie while the heroes went about their business.

After Stranger Things, IT, and Ghostbusters: Afterlife He’s going to be too big a star for that, unless the “Guy On Computer” turns out to be some kind of damn genius. Hey you know what, he’s gangly, physically weak, and extremely awkward looking, I think he would have actually made a damn fine Bruce Banner.

Disclaimer. As hard as it is to believe, this image is not from the next Hulk film.

Anyway, there isn’t much information in the way of which character Finn could be playing or in what project we’ll get to see him in. So what do you heathens think, if the former Stranger Things star is a future MCU star what character do you see him as, or would you prefer to see him as the next Batman?

Talking of Batman, the lads will be discussing The Batman on to the Livestream this Sunday at 6pm UK, 12pm CST. Tune in and not only can you join the discussion on the live comments but you can enjoy, and I quote my wife here:

“…Shawn’s cool American accent that sounds like he lives where the people from True Blood come from”.
