David Harbour, best known for playing the cantankerous but lovable Jim Hopper in Stranger Things, is now joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That's big news, for him obviously but also for us. He'll be playing Alexei Shostakov, otherwise known as Red Guardian, in the new Black Widow movie alongside Scarlett Johansson. Twitter, for its part, did its thing.
