Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is known for playing the long game. Despite focusing on Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, he already has plans for for at least another 20 films. Ahead of the release of Ant-Man and The Wasp, the studio may even be laying the groundwork of Scott Lang's young daughter, Cassie, to eventually become Stature and, with her, the potential rise of a live-action Young Avengers.
Speculation about the introduction of a team of teenage Avengers into the Marvel Cinematic Universe intensified in April with news that 16-year-old actress Emma Fuhrmann had been cast as a Cassie in Avengers 4. Adding to that, there are possible hints in Ant-Man and The Wasp to a heroic future for Scott's young daughter.
Asked if there's a possibility the Young Avengers could join the likes of the Runaways and Cloak & Dagger in the MCU, Feige told Heroic Hollywood, "Well … sure. And both of those you just mentioned we talked about for a long time and they went over to be successful TV shows. We’ve always been fans of Power Pack and figuring that out. And yes. So … where and when we would see the evolution of that? I don’t know. And certainly – taking our cue from the comics as we always do – that’s why we wanted Cassie, a very young Cassie in this movie, to be inspired by her father. Just planting seeds.”
Arriving July 6, director Peyton Reed's Ant-Man and The Wasp stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lily, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne, Michael Peña, Hannah John-Kamen, and Abby Rhyder Fortson.
