Avengers: Endgame is going to bring the greatest ensemble of Hollywood A-Listers. This was a record that was created by Avengers: Infinity War, but Endgame is going to go even beyond that in every way. The 3 hours of run time will allow the film to juggle with even more characters, and obviously many actors are coming in to play those characters. Endgame is filled with plenty of characters already, and still, new ones are coming in, or in this case, new versions of old ones. One of those new characters will probably be played by Joe Russo’s Daughter.
Joe Russo recently revealed that his daughter Ava Russo has a secret role in the film. Here’s what he said:
“This is my daughter Ava, who’s actually playing a secret role in Avengers: Endgame. We’re not talking about what it is yet. That’s it and that’s all you’re going to know.”
Well, all we can say is – “Like Father Like Daughter!” Joe Russo himself has appeared in 2 of the 3 MCU films that he has directed till now. He had secret cameos in both Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War. He also had a cameo in Avengers: Infinity War but that scene was cut out from the film to help with the pacing of the film. Here’s the Joe Russo scene that was cut off:
Bert from the Paparazzi was none other than Papa Russo! Now we know that he missed out on the cameo in Infinity War, but he will surely have one in Endgame. The funny thing is, that his daughter will have one too. And we might know what that role is now. The latest Endgame trailer showed us Clint training his daughter archery.
As many people thought by the first glance of this scene, this mystery girl here was presumed to be Kate Bishop. But, the ankle bracelet on Clint’s leg proves that he has been on house arrest similar to Scott Lang for the last 2 years. And so, it is a given that he was having a father-daughter family moment here.
This doesn’t exclude the fact that his daughter can’t be the MCU’s version of Kate Bishop, but the chances of that are pretty low. Moreover, this scene was shown to reference Hawkeye’s transition to Ronin as the disintegration of his family pushed him over the edge.
The last time we saw Clint’s Daughter was in Avengers: Age of Ultron, which was 3-4 years apart from Infinity War, so his daughter has clearly grown a lot more than anyone would have expected. But it doesn’t really matter that much, as we could presume his daughter to have been older than what she seemed in Age of Ultron. But the real catch here is that his daughter looks an awful lot like co-director Joe Russo’s daughter Ava Russo. Have a look and compare it with the image above:
The image is kind of a blur, but the smile and the height almost give it away that this is, in fact, Ava Russo. This may be a one-off deal, but this probably is Ava’s Hollywood debut. It is great to see that Marvel didn’t have to look far enough to bring in a new face for Clint’s daughter as Ava perfectly fit the description of the character. This would be included in Nepotism, but who really cares for that outside of India!
Avengers: Endgame releases on April 26. Here’s the new synopsis of the film:
“Thanos snapped his fingers in Avengers: Infinity War, and half the life in the universe instantly dissolved. Now a ragged group of surviving warriors, including Captain America, Black Widow, Iron Man, Thor, and the Hulk works to counteract the Mad Titan’s genocidal action.
Since our heroes couldn’t stop Thanos the first time, what makes them think they can win in a rematch? The answer may be in overwhelming power, thanks to Captain Marvel, or in the tiniest spaces between atoms accessible to Ant-Man. Avengers: Endgame will rewrite the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it. When it’s all over, nothing will be the same.”
I just have the biggest passion for everything cinematic! I want to share this passion with everyone through my writing about Hollywood Movies and TV. Other than that, I am a big sports fanatic and enthusiast. I’d like to write about my favorite sports as well some day.
