Giving one of the standout performances on HBO Dragon House The cast is Milly Alcock as a younger version of Emma D’Arcy’s character, Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen. In fact, the 22-year-old has already gained such popularity for the role that it’s debatable whether she will become the last actress in the game of thrones universe to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe (or appear in any upcoming comic book-related superhero movies, at least).
Several game of thrones cast members have made this transition, including Peter Dinklage (who played Eitri in Avengers: Infinity War years after playing X-Men: Days of Future Past), Richard Madden and Kit Harrington (who both appeared on the Eternals cast), and Emilia Clarke (who will star in one of Marvel’s most anticipated upcoming TV shows, Secret Invasion). If there are any upcoming Marvel movies (or TV shows, even) in Alcock’s future, we have a few Marvel characters that haven’t come to life on screen yet, which we think , would be perfect for the actor.
As well as being royal, Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen is also a dragon rider, meaning she has the ability to bond and ride said fire-breathing beast – something that tends to run in her family too . The sight of her riding her pet dragon, Syrax, on Dragon House reminded me of a Marvel character who surprisingly hasn’t been officially introduced to the MCU yet (unless you count Elizabeth Hurley’s role in Runaways) and would force Milly Alcock to channel her dark side.
Morgan Le Fay is a witch whose iconography predates Marvel Comics by centuries, but has earned a reputation in-universe as one of its most ruthlessly evil and immensely powerful villains. Not to mention, she’s also been known to send a dragon to do her bidding (or even have the ability to transform into one herself). If an index of EternalsThe post-credits scene suggests his MCU debut is imminent, so why not cast one of media’s most popular dragonriders for the role?
On second thought, Milly Alcock might prefer not to play a villain, at least for her first major role after the young princess Rhaenyra Targaryen in Dragon House. However, if she’s interested in making her Marvel debut as a character still somewhat associated with mythological beasts, I have someone in mind who couldn’t be a more perfect match.
Elsa Bloodstone is a young British woman who comes from a family of monster hunters (including her father, Ulysses Bloodstone, and brother, Cullen) who will quickly prove to be one of the best in the business when she comes of age. She would go on to partner with Deadpool at some point, creating one of the most unique and fun dynamics in Marvel Comics and one I’d love to see when Ryan Reynolds‘ Merc with a Mouth makes its MCU debut during of his third outing on the big screen. Otherwise, seeing Alcock lead an original monster-hunting adventure would be just as epic.
princess of power
Of course, it’s possible that once Milly Alcock leaves the Dragon House cast, she would rather not play another role associated with monsters for a little while. However, while she’d still be thrilled with the idea of playing royalty, there’s also a character from the Marvel Universe (or Marvel Multiverse, more specifically) that would be a perfect fit for her.
In the idyllic, crime-free land known as Earth-712’s Utopia Island, Zarda Shelton served as the princess of her royal family, until the development of the atomic bomb caused her people to flee the planet. However, Zarda chose to stay and defend the innocent under the alias of Power Princess. Although this character bears a few too many similarities to DC’s Wonder Woman (except for how Diana Prince left her people on Themiscyra instead of the other way around), I think her backstory would still be interesting to explore. in the MCU.
Fun fact about Milly Alcock: The actress is actually originally from Australia, where she started working in television and in a 2018 horror film titled school. Fun fact about the Marvel Universe: There are plenty of characters with varying abilities who hail from the Netherlands, but very few of them have made it into the MCU. Maybe casting Alcock as this young mutant could help change that.
Eva Bell is one of the young heroines recruited in The Five of House X, on which she is better known under the pseudonym of Tempus. The code name refers to its ability to shift time or furthermore speed things up, slow them down, or completely stop everything in a particular area without affecting anything outside of the given radius. She was praised for her gifts by Stephen Strange himself, which is why I like the idea of her being introduced in the former Sorcerer Supreme’s next movie, if not when the X-Men officially debut. in the MCU (which has already been mentioned in a few examples).
If it turns out that Tempus isn’t involved when the X-Men officially make their MCU debut, I actually have another mutant character in mind for Milly Alcock. Believe it or not, this one also happens to be an Australian, though not originally, having been a descendant of the alien race known as the Shi’ar.
Her name is Heather Cameron, but to her fellow X-Men she is known as Lifeguard. Reason for being: she is a true certified lifesaver, but in addition, she possesses the ability to immediately adapt to her environment by changing her form whenever a life-threatening situation calls for it. For example, she can transform her skin into golden armor, grow wings so she can fly, and when submerged in water can develop gills for breathing and a fish tail.
Earlier I considered a possible Molly Alcock and Ryan Reynolds team-up in Shawn Levy’s upcoming movie. Dead Pool 3 playing the actor as the Merc with Mouth’s monster-hunting ally, Elsa Bloodstone. However, I may have an even better idea for bringing these actors together, which would also be a game-changer for the franchise.
Just looking at Alcock, I couldn’t help but think she would make the perfect Gwendolyn Poole. This once-regular, everyday teenage comic fan would be magically transported to the Marvel Comics Universe and, using her extensive knowledge of that world, became a successful superhero with a costume that looks like Deadpool if he were. pink. Knowing that we’re already in the first phase of the MCU’s multiverse saga, now is the perfect time to introduce this unique, hilarious, meta interdimensional character into the mix.
While all of these names give me great hope for Milly Alcock’s potential future, there’s a chance she could also follow the path that others game of thrones actors such as Jason Momoa, Ciarán Hinds or Pedro Pascal starred in future DC films instead. We will just have to see.
