Explore The Potential Line-up For Marvel’s Young Avengers In The Mcu’s Phase 4 And Beyond.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is preparing to introduce a new generation of superheroes, known as the Young Avengers. In Phase 4, several characters have been set up as potential members of this team, signaling the possibility of their formation in future phases.
Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop debuted in the Disney+ series Hawkeye, taking up the mantle of Hawkeye. As a founding member of the Young Avengers in the comics, her introduction in Phase 4 hints at her involvement with the team.
Cassie Lang, portrayed by Kathryn Newton, showcased her own superhero costume in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. In the comics, she becomes a member of the Young Avengers as Stature and later Stinger.
Elijah Richardson’s portrayal of Elijah Bradley in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier connects him to the Young Avengers. In the comics, he gains powers through a blood transfusion or the use of a drug called Mutant Growth Hormone (MGH) and joins the team.
Julian Hilliard and Jett Klyne played Tommy and Billy Maximoff in WandaVision. Reincarnated as Thomas Shepherd (Speed) and William Kaplan (Wiccan) in the comics, they become members of the Young Avengers, setting the stage for their potential involvement in the team.
Xochitl Gomez’s America Chavez in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness could join the Young Avengers. Known for her ability to jump between dimensions, she becomes a powerful member of the team in the comics.
Kid Loki, portrayed by Jack Veal in Loki, offers a potential addition to the Young Avengers. In the comics, Kid Loki joins the team for a fresh start, and the Loki series provides an opportunity for his involvement.
The MCU could introduce Iron Lad, a founding member of the Young Avengers, played by Ty Simpkins or another character like Harley Keener. Iron Lad’s involvement would carry on Iron Man’s legacy without complicating the story with multiple versions of Kang.
Iman Vellani’s Kamala Khan, the titular character in the upcoming Ms. Marvel series, brings polymorphic powers to the MCU. While primarily associated with the Champions in the comics, her mutant origins in the MCU could pave the way for her involvement with the Young Avengers.
Dominique Thorne debuts as Riri Williams, also known as Ironheart, in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Riri’s connection to Stark technology suggests she could continue Iron Man’s legacy as a member of the Young Avengers.
