Spread MCU News

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s Riri Williams was played by Dominique Thorne, who also revealed a Young Avengers crossover she’d want to see on the big screen. The MCU has spent the past two years concentrating on significantly growing the franchise. The majority of this took the form of exposing the world to new heroes, many of whom were on the younger side. In Hawkeye, Hailee Steinfeld played Kate Bishop, in Ms. Marvel, Iman Vellani played Kamala Khan, and in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum Universe, Kathryn Newton played Cassie Lang. What Thorne wants to see most is a crossover between her Ironheart and one of these new superheroes.

In an exclusive interview with The Direct’s Russ Milheim, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and Ironheart actress Dominique Thorne shared which new young MCU hero she would most like to see her character, Riri Williams, cross over with. The interview took place as part of Puff’s Power Pals campaign at Children’s Healthcare Atlanta. Thorne was quick to respond, “Cassie Lang,” when asked which prospective Young Avengers she’d pair with Ironheart first, citing how their similar loss would make for an intriguing relationship to explore:

“This is a good one, ooh. We’ll see. Maybe Cassie Lang, I would opine. I believe that everything about the two of them, including their age, is similar. But Cassie also had some… Of course, we are all aware of the loss Riri has endured. Or, if we don’t, we’ll discover it… It’s how she was created. But Cassie, in a way that I don’t think we’ve really seen yet. With the Blip and everything that meant, she nevertheless also went through a different kind of loss.

The actress mentioned how the “extremely diverse origins” and “lifestyles” of the characters would enhance their interactions:

“And to see the glimpses of her sort of taking up her own mantle and going on her own journey, as alluded to from all the Quantumania trailers, I think it would be pretty interesting to see how these two young girls interact and what they do if they were to get together in this very super world of ours,” the author said.

Teaming Up with An Ironheart and Cassie Lang

Despite not having shared a screen yet, Riri William and Cassie Lang were pictured together at the Quantumania red carpet premiere. But clearly, that’s not the same as watching them interact as their MCU personalities. Without a doubt, Cassie and Riri would get along well, and their complementary technical skills might be a potent combination. Moreover, watching them both in action would bring to mind the first Avengers. Despite how intriguing the idea of a Young Avengers alliance is, Marvel Studios executive Stephen Broussard recently stated that no such film is presently in development. This might, however, simply be a white lie by the producer in an effort to keep those secrets to himself, following Andrew Garfield’s lead. These youthful individuals all seem destined to band together at some time. They’ll probably be much too old to live up to the Young Avengers moniker by the time they do, though. Maybe the MCU will give the group a another name, like The Champions. Reliable sources suggest that Young Avengers will be set up in Paul Bettany’s upcoming Disney+ series, Vision Quest, despite Broussard’s assertion that nothing is in progress. Nevertheless, it won’t be until 2025 or later that viewers will witness that.
