Updated July 15, 2019: Spider-Man: Far From Home's final post-credits scene may have set up some big future aspects of the Marvel Cinematic Universe - including, potentially, the introduction of S.W.O.R.D. and/or Alpha Flight. 

But the potential introduction of The Peak space station and what that may entail (more specific details on all that right here) took Newsarama back to 2016, when actor Sharon Stone publicly stated twice that she had a Marvel Studios role in the works, with some signs pointing to her possibly playing S.W.O.R.D. head Abigail Brand.

That story just disapperared off the map back then, with Marvel Studios never mentioning it ever and Stone never mentioning it again. But the events of Far From Home put us in mind of Stone's original comments.

Check out the story from 2016 story below. 

Original Story June 9, 2016: Sharon Stone revealed some time ago that she had what she called a "wee role" in an upcoming Marvel film. Since then, few details of her character, or in which film she might appear have been revealed.

Now, according to an AARP profile on Stone, she says her character has "heat powers" and is a "superhero." This leaves a few possibilites for women with fire or heat powers in the Marvel Universe. Looking at what Marvel has planned for Phase 3 and beyond, Stone could be playing a version of the pyrokinetic S.W.O.R.D. leader Abigail Brand.

Brand was introduced in Astonishing X-Men, meaning her rights may be in contention between Marvel and Fox, but she's currently a supporting character in Captain Marvel, and has often served as the liaison between Marvel's cosmic wing, and its earthbound heroes. It's not inconceivable that Stone could portray the green-haired Brand in 2018's Captain Marvel.

As a bonus? She was created by Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon with John Cassaday.
