With the end of phase 3 of the MCU and the completion of the arc of important characters such as Iron Man and Captain America, Marvel needs to start working with new heroes. Eternos and Shang Chi are the next big news for cinema, however, an old rumor has gained strength in recent days.
Geeks WorldWide senior editor Thomas Polito recently commented on Twitter that there are already plans to receive ideas for a film with the Young Avengers. According to him “it seems that Marvel Studios is preparing to receive proposals from screenwriters for Young Avengers”.
The information should be seen as a rumor, but there are good reasons to believe that a new team may be in Kevin Feige’s future plans. Avengers: Endgame introduced Emma Fuhrmann as Cassie Lang and the upcoming Hawkeye series will introduce Kate Bishop, Hawkeye, to the MCU. There is also the possibility that Florence Pugh will assume the role of Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, after the release of the character’s solo film.
In the comics, Young Avengers emerged as an initiative created by Visão, as a plan B for the main team of heroes. They first appeared in 2005, in a story written by Allan Heinberg and illustrated by Jim Cheung. The group was founded by Iron Boy, an “heir” to Tony Stark, and has already featured heroes such as Asgardian, Patriot, Hulkling, Gaviã Arqueira, Célere and Miss America.
The possibility of a Young Avengers movie being released is still uncertain, and if the information is confirmed, the film should only reach theaters, starting from an eventual phase 6. However, Feige admitted in 2019 that he would like to be able to release new ones. characters for at least another ten years.
“I think it would be amazing, 10 more years, at least 20 more films,” said Feige. “We always focus on taking it one step at a time, but this is all about continuing to surprise with stories, going to unexpected places, continuing to play with new and unexpected genres, and then introducing characters that people might know , like Captain Marvel or characters like the Guardians of the Galaxy, which few people knew until we introduced them ”.
Disney recently released a new premiere schedule for Marvel films, starting with Black Widow on November 6, 2020.
