A lot of people wanted them to reach the teenage stage!
After much anticipation, Wiccano and Celere were finally introduced to the MCU. The Young Avengers appeared in WandaVision, being the children of the Scarlet Witch with Visão in the “perfect reality” created by Wanda. But instead of turning them into teenagers, the project continued to babysit both of them and now Matt Shakman, the show’s director, has explained why.
Taking into account that the Young Avengers are already featured in MCU productions, many fans speculated that Wiccano and Celere would end the series as a teenager, which would help with the introduction of the heroic team. in this universe. WandaVision, however, chose to speed up the characters’ childhood, but made them stay 10 years old.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Shakman spoke about it, making it clear that they never planned to age them any more.
“We wanted to keep them at this age,” he explained. “Wanda obviously lost the first 10 years of their life because it went by so quickly, so we didn’t want to deprive her of spending more time with them. And once we met them, we had so little time on the stage with 10-year-old Billy and Tommy that we decided to use what we could to get to know very well who they were as people. There is so much innocence out there. I think aging them again would be unfair to these actors and characters.
So, do you agree with him? Will the two grow old in Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness and finally be ready for a project involving the Young Avengers? Comment on your theories!
