Will We See The Young Avengers?

December 26th, 2017 Will We See The Young Avengers?

All eyes are on Marvel as it doles out the final chapters of its Cinematic Universe. Avengers: Infinity War is set to be released April of next year but Marvel's already planning ahead by shooting the final Avengers film back to back with Infinity War. While fans have some idea of what troubles befall Earth's mightiest heroes in the third Avengers movie, it's the fourth one that's still shrouded in mystery. A new casting call for the final Avengers film though may be hinting at the future of the MCU, with the introduction of two very important Marvel Superheroes.

Wiccanda & Vision Kissing In A Tree...

If you've been watching the MCU movies with the appropriate gusto, you will have surely noticed sparks fly between Vision and Scarlet Witch in Captain America: Civil War. Although the two aren't a couple in the films yet, they have a long and complicated romantic history in the comics. And based on recent leaked set pictures they may do so in the upcoming Avengers films as well.

In the afore mentioned pictures, a very human looking Vision was spotted kissing Wanda, and now a casting call (courtesy of Auditionsfree) for two-year old twins has many fans thinking that that Avengers 4 may even introduce the couple's infamous twins from the comics: Wiccan and Speed.

Marvel comic readers will know that the children of Scarlet Witch and Vision (Wiccan and Speed) become superheroes themselves and eventually joined the Young Avengers team. Many fans are expecting Marvel to set the stage in the upcoming Avengers films, for Mcu's Phase 4, and if the speculation about the casting call does turn out to be accurate, then it'd mean that the Young Avengers could be the future of the Marvel Universe.

After all, Speed and Wiccan are known primarily as members of the superhero team, and since Marvel will be in dire need of new superheroes post Phase 3, setting up the Young Avengers would be a great idea for them. With the Young Avengers, Marvel could also introduce other fan favorites from the comics such as Hulkling, America Chavez, and Kate Bishop. Other younger superheroes such as Prodigy and Ms. Marvel too can be added to the roster, paving way for a plethora of new MCU heroes (and movies). Not to mention, with Wiccan the MCU will finally provide some LGBT representation.

And while there's really not much to go on (save for the casting call) at this point, if Marvel does use the two twins as the offspring of Scarlet Witch, it'd certainly have many fans hoping to see Speed and Wiccan and in time, Young Avengers on screen some day.
