In the comics, the boy is a member of the Young Avengers. He will join characters who have recently been revealed to be joining the MCU, including Kate Bishop Hawkeye (Hailee Steinfeld), Ant-Man’s daughter Stature (Kathryn Newton), and America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez).

Wiccan will eventually date and marry Hulkling, who is a hybrid alien of two different alien species, the Kree and the Skrull. These two superheroes played major parts in the Captain Marvel film. Now, there’s speculation that Hulkling will appear in Captain Marvel 2.

Inspired by classic TV shows such as Bewitched and The Brady Bunch, Wandavision releases new episodes on Disney+ every Friday.
