    Rumbled. So much for getting away with posting this on two threads. Did seem a good fit in the 'Black female lead' one too though. :hugegrin:

    Bettany's Jarvis interacting with the Stark AI could be fantastic.

    Before they clone Tony a new body and repair Vision's, obviously...

    Repair Vision, yes (depending on the plans for Scarlet Witch's storyline, anyway). But no reason to clone Tony. Downey's too expensive to keep popping up in live action, anyway. Being able to use him as a strictly voiceover role that only requires him to show up for a day or two of filming is the perfect way to keep him around. And him ending up where Vision/Jarvis started is a really nice symbolic end point.

    Just reflecting that they've physically 'rebooted' Stark in the source material recently. It also leads to interesting points regarding is it 'really' him ?

    A physical Downey could be seen almost entirely in suit cgi meaning any cameo could be done AS a voiceover role.

    Without him having to leave home in all probability.

    Not well acquainted with Bishop, but I think Steinfeld is one of the best, most entertaining actresses in that age group. I'd be thrilled to see her in the MCU in any role, but I'm doubly so if Kate Bishop is being set up as a main character for some sort of Young Avengers project (presumably alongside Kamala Khan).

    My only familiarity with her is Into the Spider-Verse, but I did like her character in that.

    I know very little about Kate Bishop but Hailee Steinfeld is a fantastic actress, so I'll be thrilled with any role she gets in the MCU.

    For those unfamiliar with Kate Bishop, I cannot recommend Young Avengers by Allan Heinberg highly enough. It's also a good story for Jessica Jones fans. Heinberg would go on to write the screenplay for Wonder Woman. If they ever produce YA for the big screen, I'd love to see Heinberg get first crack at the script.

    I wasn't going to bring this up before as the source is dubious, but since the subject has turned towards Young Avengers, We Got This Covered has reported that Captain Marvel 2 will introduce YA member Teddy Altman, aka Hulkling. For those not familiar, Hulkling is not actually connected to the gamma powered Hulks, and is in fact the half-Skrull son of... Mar-Vell. It could go a long way towards explaining Mar-vell's sympathy towards the Skrulls if she had a half Skrull son.

    As for other the Young Avengers, well, we've already met Cassie Lang and seen her desire to become a hero like her dad and Eli Bradley/Patriot was under consideration for inclusion in Black Panther.

    As for Tommy and Billy, the children of Scarlet Witch and Vision, in the comics, the circumstances of their conception were... bizarre, to say the least. However, Wanda, and apparently Vision, will seemingly be facing some bizarre circumstances in the WandaVision show, so who's to say if they will or won't go there?

    Weird, the way Endgame went I assumed they were just going to merge Hawkeye's Daughter and Kate Bishop into one character.

    I had the same thought, I had assumed the scene with Clint teaching his daughter archery was a set up for that. I was a bit surprised when they announced the series with a Kate Bishop as a different character.
    I wonder if we'll see his wife and kids at all in the show?
    That was the first Young Avengers series, right?
    After I saw it, I wondered if they included older Cassie Lang in Endgame at least partly so they'd have an actress already cast in case they decided to do a YA movie.

    Were America Chavez and Young Loki in that one too, or just the Kieron Gillen series?

    Just the Kieron Gillen* series. Gillan's young Loki series in Journey into Mystery, which takes place before Young Avengers, was well worth the read. The first issue is one of the single best issues of any comic I've ever read. You could have done in entire miniseries out of the story told in that issue.

    * Funny fact, the voice dictation function on my phone keeps writing "Kieron Gillen" as "Karen Gillan".
