Marvel Comics expert predicts the next phase of the MCU franchise


Marvel has been teasing nearly every member of the Young Avengers line since “Ant-Man” introduced Cassie Lang (Abby Ryder Fortson), aka Young Avenger’s Stature. We saw Kate Bishop/Hawkeye (Hailee Steinfeld), Elijah Bradley/Patriot (Elijah Richardson), Billy/Wiccan (Julian Hilliard) and Tommy Maximoff/Speed ​​(Jett Klyne), America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez), and a pint – child-sized Loki (Jack Veal) in the MCU. Additionally, 2019’s “Captain Marvel” may have laid the groundwork for the arrival of Kree-Skrull hybrid Teddy Altman, aka Hulkling. However, there is one major exception missing from the team.

For this to work, we’re waiting for something to happen before “Avengers: Kang Dynasty” in Phase 6 of the MCU. “Ant-Man Quantumania” or an unannounced project could provide a springboard for a variant to emerge. In the pages of Marvel comics, Kang the Conqueror has a shocking blood connection to the Fantastic Four. Kang is a descendant of the Richards family and Iron Lad is a child-aged Kang. Courtesy of his future self, Iron Lad receives a visit from his villainous future, inspiring him to unite the Young Avengers and stop Kang’s (and his) fate. With in-game variants courtesy of “Loki” and “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” the confusing aspect of time travel could be set aside in favor of a child ready to change his mind. sacred timeline.
