Fans enjoyed Hailee Steinfeldthe representation of Kate Bishop in Marvel’s Disney+ series Hawk Eye. New rumor says she’ll be joining the MCU on the big screen in Paul Rudd’s third installment Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. After Hawkeye, many predicted that Kate Bishop will play a big role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it looks like the sequel to Ant-Man and the Wasp could be the next step in her MCU career.
Has Hailee Steinfeld been spotted in the filming of Ant-Man 3?
Reports claim that Hailee Steinfeld was “recently spotted on the set of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania before filming wrapped” since reshoots began. Kate Bishop’s involvement in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania would make sense given the character’s friendship with Cassie Lang, Scott Lang’s daughter. Of course, this is just a rumor, so it’s unclear if Kate Bishop’s involvement will just be a cameo or even a cameo in a post-credits scene.
The Young Avengers
many believe Cassie Lang, who will be played by Kathryn Newton in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumia, will embrace her father’s legacy and become her own superhero. As a result, this alleged Kate Bishop appearance could indicate that the Ant-Man sequel would establish The Young Avengers, an all-new superhero team that Cassie Lang and Kate Bishop once served as members of in Marvel Comics. The Young Avengers, which were created by Allan Heinberg and Jim Cheung, are usually made up of superheroes related to the original Avengers, and their arrival in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum Mania could lead to a whole new MCU franchise.
Cassie Lang could be recruited by someone like Val or whoever is in charge of the Young Avengers team (maybe Clint and Lyla combined). They could co-lead a group that includes America Chavez, Riri Williams, Kamala Khan, Eli Bradley, Kid Loki, Skaar, Nathaniel Richards and Billy and Tommy.
On February 17, 2023, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will be released, while a Young Avengers project is planned for 2025 or possibly 2026.
