Avengers: Endgame was a movie that starred the most number of Hollywood A-Listers. It was also the movie with the most number of Superheroes involved, and it even did well to bring back the dead and retired characters of the MCU. There were some characters that we thought and wished would make the film, but there were so many that some of our favorites were always going to be left out.
We hoped for an appearance from Odin, the Grandmaster, the Collector, M’Baku, Erik Selvig, Darcy, Hela, Ultron, Quicksilver, and others. But perhaps “we did see that coming,” so Marvel took it upon themselves to surprise us by not bringing in these characters at all. One mystery character that they did not bring in to the film was supposed to be played by the 13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford.
There was such a major announcement about her back in the day, and people were theorizing all kinds of things trying to figure out the character she could be playing. There were good theories, and then they were these far-fetched theories. The good ones said that she could either be playing Hawkeye’s protégé Kate Bishop, or she could even be Tony’s daughter Maguna aka Morgan Stark 20 years from the future. The far-fetched one was he playing the actual embodiment of Mistress Death, being the greater threat to the Universe.
Well, as it turned out, she wasn’t playing any of those. Hawkeye’s protégé would probably be his daughter Laila, who will be the version of Kate Bishop that we might get in the Hawkeye solo series on Disney+. And she was being played by Joe Russo’s daughter Ava Russo. Endgame did not go 20 years in the future and it did not bring in Death, so whatever character Katherine Langford was supposed to play must have been cut off.
As far as we know, she could have been anyone and could be seen stepping into the future of the MCU. It wasn’t just “fake news” when The Wrap reported her involvement with the film, so we may find out within the next 2-3 years, if not earlier. A little birdie flew near us and claimed that she could have been the younger version of Sue Storm? Well, that’s a hellova claim.
We don’t know what to expect of the future, even though the ending of Avengers: Endgame did set certain things up pretty well. But as Cap said, sometimes patience is the key to victory. So we’ve gotta wait to know the reality of certain things in the MCU. We’d get to know the next stage of the MCU right after Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Here’s the new synopsis of Avengers: Endgame:
“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.”
