In her recent Instagram Live, Stranger Things' star Millie Bobby Brown opens up about Finn Wolfhard’s character, Mike Wheeler, and tells fans that he’s “the perfect boy”.

Her Instagram livestream began with her wearing a casual Stranger Things hoodie and a bright plaster on her face that was apparently masking a pimple. It appears even stars get self-conscious!

Anyway, when fans started to ask the star what she thought about ‘Mileven’ breaking up, Millie reveals that she was not happy at all when she first read that in the script.

“Okay, I’m going to be real with everyone right now I was not happy.”

She explained that when Mike and her character, Eleven, finally got together, she was incredibly happy because then they could finally be together and kiss and “be a couple which is what we all wanted.”

Before the two characters started dating, Millie would watch the show thinking, “why can’t they be together?”. She finally put it down to the “bloody monster [that] keeps getting in the way”, though.


Unfortunately, though, Millie's happiness didn't last long as in episode 2, the pair broke up. And Millie was definitely annoyed.

She explained that she thought the characters were so "cute together" and that Mike loved Eleven no matter what she looked like.

"[Mike] loved her no matter what she looked like, no matter what she said... No matter what she did, he still loved her, and that’s just the perfect boy. To love you for whoever you are.”

Aww. Hopefully, Millie will find a real-life Mike in her future. At least potential crushes will now know what Millie's looking for!

The questions continued, and a fan asked Millie whether she would shave her head again. There was no hesitation as Millie immediately confirmed that yes, she would.

And finally, after a curious fan asked her about whether she was really going to be in a Marvel movie - a rumour that has recently been circulating social media platforms, Millie responded:

“Okay, everybody thinks I’m going to be in a Marvel movie. Not that I know of. My family and I have no idea so I just wanna let everybody know that I’m not.

But then she adds:

"As of right now.”

Well, it certainly sounds like Millie is up for a role in the MCU. Who else would love to see Millie in the Marvel's universe? Could we start a petition, please?

At least it seems the head of Marvel Studio, Kevin Feige, already knows of the young Stranger Things' star. It was him that caused the start of the Marvel rumour ever since he said it would be "fun" to see Millie in the MCU.

In the meantime, though, we will be seeing Millie next on the big screen for Godzilla VS Kong which is expected to be released on 13 March 2020.
