April 18th Update: We reached out to Emma Fuhrmann’s management at Untitled Entertainment today to confirm her role as Cassie Lang in Untitled Avengers. Her management had no comment.
16-year old actress Emma Fuhrmann will portray Cassie Lang, the daughter of Scott Lang/Ant-Man, in 2019’s Untitled Avengers film. After initially noticing the addition on IMDB, we reached out to a source for confirmation of Fuhrmann’s casting and were told that the young actress did indeed fill the role of Cassie Lang during some scenes. We were unable to confirm if Abby Ryder Fortson, the 10-year old actress who plays Cassie in both Ant-Man and Ant-Man and The Wasp, was also on set.
We can only speculate about why Fuhrmann, who is significantly older than Fortson, was cast in Untitled Avengers…so that’s what we will do. Two scenarios come to mind: either Ant-Man and The Wasp and Untitled Avengers are separated, in the cinematic timeline, by a number of years, or, as many fans have theorized, Untitled Avengers could involve time travel. Of course having an older Lang lends itself, almost inexorably, to the speculation that we could see her take on one the super-personas from the comics: Stature or Stinger. Many fans believe that a Young Avengers film could be one of many on Marvel Studios future slate, so introducing Cassie as Stature would certainly fuel those fires. Again, this is just speculation on our part, but it’s certainly worth the effort!
Fuhrmann is considered an up and comer in Hollywood, having been seen in The Magic of Belle Isle and Blended. We will be reaching out to Fuhrmann’s representation tomorrow morning for comment.
