Marvel Studios has always been extremely smart with its casting, often snagging the stars of some of TV’s biggest series as they look to climb the Hollywood ladder. We’ve seen that happen before with veterans of The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and Stranger Things, and we may be about to see it occur again with Yellowstone. According to a new rumor, Marvel has secured the services of two alumni of the hit western drama. Exactly who these actors are or where they could appear has yet to be revealed, but fans are enjoying themselves trying to figure that out.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. favorite Chloe Bennet has won the award for best Twitter comeback of the day this Wednesday. In the face of haters claiming she won’t return to the MCU due to her supposed lack of acting talent, the Quake actress fired back by claiming these “tweets aren’t going to age well.” We can surely only take this as a promise that she has a Marvel project in the works, which is exactly what fans have been waiting to hear since AoS concluded in 2020. Secret Invasion, anyone?

While we still have no idea if Eternals 2 will happen, one upcoming MCU project we fully expected to tie back to that movie was Blade, considering the Eternals after-credits scene saw Mahershala Ali’s Daywalker whisper an ominous warning to Kit Harington’s Dane Whitman. However, the latest intel indicates that Harington won’t be reprising his role as Black Knight in the supernatural superhero flick after all, leaving this corner of the franchise in limbo once more.
