Is ‘Stranger Things’ Caleb McLaughlin Being Considered For A Marvel Role?

If there are two things that I hold in the highest of nerd-regard, they would have to be Netflix’s Stranger Things and Marvel Studios. That is exactly what makes this piece of news so cool to report. Just a few minutes ago, Marvel Entertainment’s Twitter page tweeted out an image of Stranger Things child actor Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas) while he was partaking in a tour of their Studios.

Below the image, Caleb responds thanking Marvel for the tour. Nothing else is stated about why McLaughlin is there, but it could very well be because he is in discussion for an eventual Marvel role. We have seen instances in the past of other actors being invited to the studio to discuss potential roles within their film universe, so this would not be out of the ordinary.

Check out the image below:

The image is of McLaughlin with a Doctor Strange comic and a giant smile on his face as he stands in front of a Marvel backdrop. The caption simply reads a single hashtag: #DrStrangerThings. Marvel picking up a player from Stranger Things now would be a smart move, considering the show just came off of a stellar first season and the actor is still young enough to mold over a series of movies.

Now, don’t get my words twisted, this is far from confirmation of anything, but it is certainly suspicious. Do you think Caleb McLaughlin is being courted for a Marvel role? Let us know what you think in the comments.

Jack of some trades, master of some others. That saying never really made a lot of sense to me.

      No thank you.

      Why not just use Abraham Attah (from NetFlix’s Beasts of No Nation) if that’s the case?

      He’s already been cast in Spider-Man : Homecoming, and arguably had a stronger performance in Beasts, acting against veteran Idris Elba and practically carrying that movie on his shoulders as an 11 year old (when the movie was filmed.

      The thing that might give your theory more credence is that Caleb is much younger than Tom Holland – which is just about the right age dynamic that exists between Peter Parker and Miles Morales. Plus, he’d have no theory nailing a Queens accent since he’s American.

      But then again Attah is also younger than Holland (though older than McLaughlin by a couple of years or so), and actors taking on American accents is not the hardest thing in the world (Exhibit A : Tom Holland).

    No he’s not up for anything at Marvel. They wouldn’t acknowledge anybody like that if they were up for a role. Theyve been operating the same exact way for 10 years and won’t change anytime soon.

      Vin Diesel pretty much confirmed his Groot role in practically almost the EXACT same way.

      (tweeted a picture of himself on the Marvel lot in front of a large poster with himself holding a comic of a different character.)
