“Yeah, I’m definitely chomping… It’s been a while since then [the Apple TV+ series] Dickinson is over and since Hook is out, but I’m ready to go back to it. I’m so excited to be again with the people who do what I do, and love what we do, and have a sense of belonging when I’m on set, and a sense of home, and I just love it. Some time has passed. So, I chomp a little.”

Are the Young Avengers coming to the MCU?

Last year, Chávez said she hopes to return to the MCU, perhaps in a sequel The Avengers: Kang Dynasty. It’s also theorized that perhaps one of the unannounced projects in development for the MCU’s Phase 6 is a Young Avengers movie, and it’s keeping its “fingers crossed” for that possibility. As she told Movies Con Jovanny:
“Obviously, there’s the Kang Dynasty, so a little bit of Kang, I think that could be fun with America. But there were a lot of unannounced, unnamed titles. We saw some things in Phase 6 that didn’t really have a name, so I don’t know, fingers crossed, maybe the Young Avengers?
Time will tell if the Young Avengers take shape in the MCU, however The Avengers: Kang Dynasty It will be released in theaters on May 2, 2025.
