We will briefly introduce the ELT project, its status and its first light instruments. We will then focus on the first light imager, MICADO and its potential to perform extremely high spatial resolution astrometry and deep photometry of stars in clusters and galaxies. We will present results from current state-of-the-art simulations for the case of R136, a young open cluster located in the Large Magellanic Cloud. We predict that this instrument will open a new window in discerning the presence of Intermediate Mass Black Holes in the centres of such kind of star clusters.
