Yesterday, Daniel Richtman alluded to Teddy Altman, aka Hulkling, being cast for an upcoming Marvel project on Twitter, and now The Illuminerdi claim to have confirmed that the character will make his debut on Disney+’s WandaVision.
There’s been speculation that Hulkling might show up along with Wiccan ever since a casting call appeared to reveal that two teenagers were being sought for the show, and this may confirm that at least one half of the couple will appear.
Apparently, Marvel is looking for a teenager or young adult male to play Teddy (age 16 – 23), who is described as a “Skrull who requires help from S.W.O.R.D. in order to remain safely on Earth.” Comic fans will know that Hulkling is actually a Kree-Skrull hybrid, but there’s always a chance that will come to light as the series progresses.
Although two separate sources are reporting on this, it’s best to treat it as a rumor for the time being. We’ll be sure to update if and when we find out more.
Avengers: Endgame actually laid the groundwork for the Young Avengers to form down the line. Find out what other projects could still spin-off from the Infinity Saga final below.

Although The Eternals are never directly referenced, Captain Marvel makes it very clear that what’s happening on Earth after The Decimation is happening all across the universe, so one can’t help but wonder if Carol’s outer space adventures during the events of Endgame might somehow tie-in to the introduction of Marvel Studios’ next cosmic super-team.
The Plot of The Eternals is still under wraps, but we do know that Sersi (Angelina Jolie, probably) likes to live among humans, so there’s also a chance she was on Earth for “The Snap” and the aftermath.
If Marvel does decide to introduce a younger incarnation of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, they already have a few options for the roster.
Hawkeye’s daughter Lila seems pretty handy with a bow and arrow, and could always take over her father’s mantle now that Clint Barton is (presumably) retired. Plus, Cassie Lang is now a teenager and might decide to suit-up as Stature at some point. More unlikely is Harley Keener – the kid from Iron Man 3 who shows up for Tony Stark’s funeral at the end – who has been the source of Iron Lad speculation for years now.
Of course, there is also a more direct descendant of The Armored Avenger, but more on that later.
The New Asgardians
At the end of the movie, Thor leaves New Asgard in the capable hands of Queen Valkyrie. We know The God of Thunder will be jetting off with the Guardians, but surely we’ll return to that little coastal town full of viking aliens at some point, right?
If not, it’d be a wasted opportunity, because the continuing adventures of Korg, Miek and the others is something that needs to be explored – if not on the big screen, then on the new Disney+ streaming service.
So, looks like that Black Widow movie is definitely gonna be a prequel!
Natasha Romanov meeting her end in Avengers: Endgame doesn’t so much set up the character’s solo film as it does confirm that the soon-to-shoot project will take place before the events of the Infinity Saga finale, and will most likely focus on Nat’s days as a Russian spy/assassin.
There is some speculation that Widow could somehow be resurrected, but that seems highly unlikely and would seriously cheapen her noble sacrifice on Vormir.
Okay, so Morgan Stark is far too young to even start thinking about the superhero gig, but if Marvel ever does decide to continue the solo Iron Man franchise, they do have the perfect person to take up the mantle of the Armored Avenger… in a few years, that is.
Of course, we also saw Pepper Potts suit-up as Rescue at the end of the movie – but Gwyneth Paltrow recently confirmed that she’d be leaving the MCU after Endgame, so her continuing on in her late husband’s place seems unlikely.
Was this the last we’ll see of Bruce Banner/The Hulk in The MCU?
While most of the other original Avengers’ stories came to pretty definitive ends, Professor Hulk (Prulk?) is still active at the end of the movie. Granted, one arm seems severely damaged after using the Infinity Gauntlet, but one would assume that wouldn’t keep The Green Goliath out of action for good.
Another solo Hulk movie remains very unlikely, but the fact that this version of the character is a fully CG creations definitely leaves room for him to return in some capacity, even if it’s just for an occasional cameo appearance.
We’ve been hearing whispers of a possible all-female Avengers movie for a while now, and Endgame definitely teases its potential.
During the final battle, Spider-Man asks Captain Marvel how she intends to fight her way through Thanos’ minions with the Infinity Gauntlet, and every female hero on the field – including Valkyrie, Wanda, Wasp, Okoye, Mantis and more – comes to her aid.
To be honest, it’s a bit of a clumsy sequence, but it might give us some idea of how an A-Force movie’s roster would look should Marvel ever decide to move forward with one.
GOTG Vol. 3
The third Guardians of the Galaxy movie is still a few years off, but Endgame actually does a great job of setting up the plot.
After Stark’s funeral, Thor joins his space-faring pals for some more intergalactic adventures and will, presumably, still be a part of the team by the time Vol. 3 comes our way. Plus, with the new (or should that be old?) Gamora MIA, Star-Lord and the others have the perfect mission to kick things off by tracking her down and convincing her to join the crew.
At the very end of the film, Steve Rogers passes the mantle of Captain America to Sam Wilson, setting the stage for a brand new Sentinel of Liberty in The MCU. The question is, will Sam wield the shield on the big screen?
We know there’s a Falcon and The Winter Soldier Disney+ series in the works (although that might takes place before the events of Endgame), but it would be a shame if we didn’t see this new incarnation of the iconic hero make an impact in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well.
The New Avengers
Endgame may be the final installment in The Infinity Saga, but we know it’s not going to be the last Avengers movie! It may take quite some time, but Marvel will put together a new team of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes at some point, and many fans expected Endgame to give us an idea of which characters we’d see on the roster.
Unfortunately, things still seem a little up in the air on that front.
It’s assumed that Captain Marvel and Black Panther will return in leadership roles, and they’ll likely be joined by Ant-Man, The Wasp, Doctor Strange, Wanda, Rhodey, and hopefully our new Captain America. Bucky is also a possibility, as are supporting characters such as Shuri and Wong.
We’ll just have to wait and see how Phase 4 develops.
