The mystery that is Avengers 4 continues to grow. According to The Hashtag Show, Emma Fuhrmann has joined the cast of the untitled film as Cassie Lang, Scott Lang’s daughter.
That may come as some surprise knowing that Cassie appeared just three years ago in Ant-Man portrayed by Abby Ryder Fortson. The young actress will reprise her role as Cassie later this year in Ant-Man and The Wasp. So that still leaves the question, why is she being recast?
The prevailing theory is that Avengers 4 will include a form of time travel. If that is indeed the case it could lead the team to the future where they could run into a much older Cassie. At that point in her life, it’s possible that she has adopted a version of one of her comic alter egos, most likely Stature or Stinger.
In the comics, Cassie Lang is a member of the Young Avengers, a team comprised of young superheroes. Fans have been clamoring for the MCU to delve into a Young Avengers storyline or even film for quite some time. If this report is indeed accurate, it’s possible we will be getting the setup for that story when Avengers 4 hits theaters in 2019. For now, we’ll have to wait to see how Avengers: Infinity War plays out before speculating further.
