THE MARVELS Almost Introduced A Fully-Formed YOUNG AVENGERS Team According To Kamala Khan Actress Iman Vellani

According to Ms. Marvel actress Iman Vellani, there was a version of The Marvel’s script that actually saw a fully-formed Young Avengers team introdcued.

Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel actress Iman Vellani was a recent guest on the Phase Zero podcast where she touched on one of the big scenes in The Marvels that occurred in the movie’s final moments.

The scene in question saw Ms. Marvel going to recruit Kate Bishop aka Hawkeye (Hailee Steinfeld) for a Young Avengers team in a scene that paid homage to the first Iron Man movie’s end credits stinger where Nick Fury told Tony Stark that he’d just become part of a bigger universe. 

According to Vellani that scene in The Marvels could have looked more similar to Cap’s roll call at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron instead of the iconic first meeting between Nick Fury and Stark. 

“Yes, it was pretty much the same lines…They were trying to incorporate as many as they [could] but I think it’s best that we see Kamala form the Young Avengers, starting from the beginning. There was a version [of the scene] where they already existed and I was like, ‘That doesn’t make any sense.’ And they were like, ‘We know, we’re not going to film [that version].

But yeah, it was fun and I loved working with Hailee for just that one day that I got to meet her, see her and talk to her.  It was nice to have someone to relate to and talk about the super suits and the future of where the Young Avengers lies. I’m very excited and hopeful that leads to something real.” 

If you recall, Kamala Khan also name-dropped Cassie Lang (Kathryn Newton) so it’s probably safe to assume that Stature will be a member of the Young Avengers.

The MCU currently has a ton of potential additional candidates to join the team including The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s Joaquin Torres (Danny Ramirez) who goes on to become the second Falcon and Isaiah Bradley’s grandson, Eli Bradley aka Patriot.

There’s also WandaVision’s Billy (Julian Hillard) and Tommy Maximoff (Jett Kylne), who go on to become Wiccan and Speed, while Black Panther: Wakanda Forever saw Ironheart (Dominique Thorne) debut.

She-Hulk also introduced the Hulk’s son, Skaar (Wil Deusner) who could be a Hulkling alternative while Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness contained the MCU debut of America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez).

Do you think the MCU will move forward with an actual Young Avengers movie or perhaps they’ll be one of the superhero groups the audience will follow if Avengers: The Kang Dynasty or Avengers: Secret Wars introduces Battleworld?
