In early May, former Academy Award-nominee Sharon Stone revealed on The Late Late Show with James Corden that she would be making a small appearance in an upcoming Marvel movie and while she wouldn't share much else on which movie and/or her part in said movie, she did repeatedly confirm that she had already signed the contract as well as an NDA.

With production currently underway on James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 and production on Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok expected to kick off shortly, it was widely assumed that if she were making an appearance somewhere, it would be in one of those three films. There's also an off-chance it could be James Mangold's Wolverine 3, which just started filming, or Doug Liman's Gambit, which launches this fall, but it's probably unlikely. Details on her role were more or less nonexistant, save for the fact that it will be a small role, but it looks like a recent interview may have uncovered something very intriguing.

In an extensive interview with AARP, where Stone appeared alongside Jane Fonda (Grace and Frankie) and Alfre Woodard (Luke Cage), the Casino actress revealed that her role will be superheroic in nature and that she'll have a very distinct set of powers that should separate her from anyone else currently residing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Check out the excerpt below:

Meanwhile, Woodard and Stone are about to become very familiar to the highly sought-after comic-book-film crowd: Woodard's character is a villain in Marvel's anticipated Netflix series Luke Cage; Stone has been cast as a superhero — she'll only reveal that her secret power is heat — in a yet-to-be-named movie, also for Marvel.

Heat powers? Now, this just got interesting. One of the more prominent female Marvel characters with heat manipulation/generation abilities is of course Angelica Jones a.k.a. Firestar, but considering she's a mutant and has ties to the X-Men, the rights to her are likely owned by 20th Century Fox. However, she also has ties to the Avengers, so it could be Scarlet Witch/Quicksilver situation once again. Other options include Magma, Crystal, and Firebird, but most of them have more ties to the X-Men than they do with any of the characters owned by Marvel Studios. 

Our best best is probably that she's playing some obscure alien character in Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, possibly Frankie Raye a.k.a. Nova, or maybe even an older, seasoned Firestar to mentor young Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Homecoming, but if you want a theory that's a little outside the box, she could be playing someone in Thor: Ragnarok that has ties to Surtur or even Surtur himself, if Marvel decides to go in a drastically different direction with the character, but then again there are no guarantees the classic villain will even make an appearance in the Taika Waititi-directed film. Stone did admit the character is a hero, so the latter theory is highly unlikely at best, but it would be kind of interesting if it were true. 

So, what do you guys think? Who could she be? Sound off with your thoughts below!
