'Young Avengers' may be in development at Marvel Studios, fans weigh in and hope it's a TV show
In the comics, a group of superpowered youngsters came together after the main Avengers team disbanded and formed the ever-popular 'Young Avengers' team
If this rumor actually turns out to be true, then guess we will be seeing the Young Avengers foray into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
This piece of news comes from Thomas Polito, the senior editor of Geeks WorldWide. He took to Twitter to say that Marvel Studios is gearing up to hear pitches from writers for this installment. Should this be greenlit, it's sure to get fans excited. "Sounds like Marvel Studios is gearing up to take pitches from writers for Young Avengers," he tweeted.
And fans were quick to respond. "I know he's busy doing Sandman, but wouldn't it be cool to get Allan Heinberg to do it? He co-created them and has experience in screenwriting for tv and film," asked a fan. "Best news of 2020 (not that the bar was set high)!!!" said another. A few fans hoped for it to be a TV show. "I don’t know if you can answer, but do you know if they’ve settled on whether it will be a Disney+ Show or a Movie. I’m hopeful for it being a show," tweeted a fan.
Here's another theory: " Have no idea, but I'm betting on TV... Disney's arena has always been teen TV shows. They could turn YA into a major weekly, not just a short D+ miniseries."
Last year, during an interview with MTV News, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed the next ‘Avengers’ movie, slated to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s (MCU) Phase 5, will feature brand new characters we have never seen before.
"It will be a very different team than we’ve seen before, that’s what 'Avengers: Endgame' was all about,” said Feige. “It will be a very different incarnation of the team with some people you’ve already met and some people you haven’t met yet."
Earlier, we had speculated that MCU could very well see the Young Avengers in the coming future. In the comics, a group of superpowered youngsters came together after the main Avengers team disbanded and formed the ever-popular 'Young Avengers' team. Some of these heroes like Hulkling and Wiccan were children of Avengers members while others, like Iron Lad, had a more complicated connection to "Earth’s Mightiest Heroes".
We have already met one of the Young Avengers — Cassie Lang, the daughter of Scott Lang aka Ant-Man (Paul Rudd). The five-year time jump in 'Avengers: Endgame' conveniently aged Cassie to her teens, putting her at the right age to become the size-changing hero and key Young Avengers member known as Stature.
But for now, with the coronavirus pandemic delaying all of their releases, Young Avengers, even if greenlit, will be awhile.
