Millie Bobby Brown, the absolutely adorable star of Netflix's Stranger Things, is the first announced human cast member of the upcoming sequel Godzilla: King of the Monsters, set to be directed by Michael Dougherty.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, this will mark Brown's big screen debut. No word on whether or not she will follow in her namesake's footsteps and record a rap that sums up the plot of the film as the other Bobby Brown did for Ghostbusters 2.
Just kidding, it's a tad unfair of me to put those kinds of pressures on someone as awesome as MBB. My only hope is that they're not going to have her play an Eleven-esque telepath who defeats Godzilla with her mind. That would be colossally stupid. Plus, the humans are Godzilla's allies in these new films, so it would be something of a dick move to kill him off after earning his trust.
Of course, none of this is to mention that they're not going to kill off Godzilla because the plan is to ultimately bring him and King Kong together for some sort of shared large monster shared cinematic universe, not to be confused with Universal's other monster shared cinematic universe.
Confused yet? Just go see Kong: Skull Island on March 10, Godzilla: King of the Monsters on March 22, 2019, and then Godzilla v Kong: Dawn of Rampage, where they fight for five minutes before joining forces with a gigantic werewolf to attack a city.
