Although Marvel Studios hasn’t officially announced any plans for the Young Avengers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that hasn’t stopped fans from asking for America Chavez to join Marvel’s big-screen heroes. With the launch of her first-ever solo comic by writer Gabby Rivera and artist Joe Quinones, the character has seen a surge in popularity as of late, leading many to hope Marvel will finally bring America to the big screen, sooner rather than later. Someone that also hopes to see that happen is Brooklyn Nine-Nine actress Stephanie Beatriz, who expressed her interest in tackling the role in a potential film on Twitter recently.

Interestingly enough, the actress, who has played the role of Rosa Diaz on Brooklyn Nine-Nine for four seasons now, has often been a fan casting choice for the role of America. So her throwing her ring into the actresses interested in the potential gig should be pleasing for fans. Whether or not we actually get to see America take to the big screen, however, remains to be seen.
As of right now, Marvel has announced its plans through 2020, with no mention of America or the rest of the Young Avengers in sight. However, with the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe set to look incredibly different following the conclusion of Phase Three, anything is possible.
The character of America Chavez was created by Al Gabriele and Otto Binder and first gained popularity following the Young Avengers run by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie. She’s currently starring in her own series written by Gabby Rivera and drawn Joe Quinones, with the third issue having been released back on May 10.
