If a report from That Hashtag Show is to be believed, Marvel has cast 16-year-old actress Emma Fuhrmann (Blended) in Avengers 4 as an older version of Scott Lang’s daughter Cassie Lang, played by 10-year-old Abby Ryder Fortson in Ant-Man and the upcoming sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp.
The site goes on to speculate that there are two possible scenarios for the casting: a) that the as-yet-untitled Avengers sequel takes place a number of years after Infinity War and the Ant-Man sequel, or b) that the inclusion of a teenage Cassie is down to time travel, something that has been highly speculated for the Infinity War follow-up.
It has been previously confirmed that both Paul Rudd (Scott Lang) and Evangeline Lilly (Hope Van Dyne) will feature in Avengers 4, with The Wasp set to sit out Infinity War, and Ant-Man’s status in that movie unclear.
In the comic books, Cassie Lang has taken on the mantle of both Stature and Stinger, a superhero possessing the same abilities as her father, and serving as a member of the Young Avengers. Perhaps we’ll see a take on this in Avengers 4?
