Thanks to the fourth season of Stranger Things and starring in Taylor Swift's "All To Well (Taylor's Version) music video, Sadie Sink is now a bigger name in Hollywood and is considered one of the rising young actresses to look out for. As her career is gearing up, it looks like her next step might be joining the biggest movie franchise today.

According to Giant Freakin Robot, Sink is joining an MCU project although they didn't give any specifics on the title of the project or the role that she will be playing. However, they speculated that she could play the role of Songbird in Thunderbolts, a character from the comics who is also a prominent member of the team.

Assuming that it is true, it is not surprising to hear about the possibility of Sink joining the MCU since she is one of the rising actresses today and we've seen patterns recently of Marvel casting young actors/actresses in several of their roles. We can also say that she might be interested beforehand in joining the franchise given its popularity and the boost that it gives in someone's career.

We also know that Marvel Studios is doing a Thunderbolts film and has hinted that the members will include familiar characters and ones that haven't been introduced yet so it wouldn't be jarring to consider that she'll end up playing a new character in the film.

Right now, all we can do is speculate until we hear any official announcements from Marvel themselves regarding Sink's potential involvement in the MCU. Either way, it is a piece of exciting news to think about.
