A Young Avengers property has been rumored to be in the works at Marvel Studios now for quite some time. For now, it seems that speculation on if the team will appear in the MCU can come to a rest.
Initial reports said Marvel Studios was putting together a feature film but now, new rumors suggest Young Avengers will be heading to Disney+ as a limited series instead. The latest rumor comes from scoop maestro Daniel Richtman (via Full Circle Cinema), who suggests that while a movie may still be in the works, the studios seems to be warming up to the idea of a limited series instead.
Marvel Studios took another major step to assembling the group as it reportedly closes in on hiring Bumblebee star Hailee Steinfeld as the MCU’s Kate Bishop. Fans were previously introduced to an older Cassie Lang (Emma Fuhrmann) after a five-year time jump in Avengers: Endgame, a character who becomes a superhero in her own right in various comic storylines.
As created by Wonder Woman screenwriter Allen Heinberg and artist Jim Cheung, the Young Avengers were: Iron Lad, a teenage version of future villain Kang the Conqueror whose armor — inspired by that of Tony Stark — is later the home to an alternate version of the operating system of the Vision; Stature, AKA Cassie Lang, the teenage daughter of Scott Lang (Ant-Man), using the same size-changing technology as her father; Hulkling, a shape-changer who presents as a teenage version of the Hulk; Wiccan, one of a pair of twins who turn out to be magical children of the Scarlet Witch; Patriot, the grandson of the man who had been a test subject for an early version of Captain America’s super-soldier serum; and Hawkeye, AKA Kate Bishop, a socialite who just happens to be handy with all manner of weaponry.
