New Avengers Movie In Development At Marvel, Will Feature Young Heroes

Marvel fans are prepared for some big changes in the MCU following Avengers: Endgame. We've been told repeatedly that the fourth Avengers movie will mark both the end of the first decade of the franchise and a new beginning for it. One obvious way to do that would be to totally revamp the team's line-up, and if our intel's correct, that's apparently exactly what the studio's got planned.

Sources close to We Got This Covered have confirmed that a New Avengers movie is in the early stages of development over at Marvel. Despite the title, the line-up being touted for the film is the group known as the Young Avengers in the comics – the next generation of heroes. Specifically, we’ve been informed that the rejuvenated roster will be made up of Kate Bishop’s Hawkeye, Hulkling, Iron Lad, Patriot, Wiccan, Stature and Vision (not Paul Bettany’s version).

The only casting confirmed so far is that Emma Fuhrmann’s playing Stature and, as has been theorized, she’ll be seen as an older Cassie Lang – Ant-Man’s daughter – in Endgame, which will introduce the concept of the new team as we say goodbye to the old one.

That certainly matches up with what we’ve heard already, too, as Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has admitted that the inclusion of Cassie in the Ant-Man films was part of a move to “plant seeds” for the arrival of the Young Avengers. Also, don’t forget that Katherine Langford’s turning up in Endgame as well, and she’s rumored to be playing Kate Bishop.

The rest of the reported line-up would also fit where the MCU is at right now. Young heroes like Patriot and Hulking would be inspired by Captain America and Bruce Banner, and then there’s Iron Lad who, well, let’s just say he’s closely connected with a Fantastic Four villain – a property that Marvel will soon get the rights to. Finally, Wiccan and Vision 2.0. are likely Scarlet Witch and Vis’ kids, with the latter replacing Speed from the comics.

All things considered, a Young – or, apparently, New – Avengers movie definitely seems like a no-brainer for Marvel as they head into Phase Four, and as soon as we learn more about it, we’ll be sure to let you know.
