A rumoured casting call made by Marvel has dropped a big hint that a major new character will be joining the next Avengers film.

The company has always remained tight-lipped about many future plans for the Marvel Cinemaic Universe (MCU), with details occasionally leaking out through gossip websites and leaks.

Almost nothing is known for certain about the future of the Avengers movies, the ambitious crossover series that will bring together characters from across the MCU.

However, theilluminerdi.com has leaked an apparent casting call for the upcoming Disney+ streaming series She-Hulk.

She-Hulk is one of several Marvel properties that is being adapted into a series, along with WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, Marvel‘s What If...?, Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel and Moon Knight.

The casting call reportedly seeks an actress between the ages of 26 and 34, of any racial background. What’s more, the casting call supposedly gives details about the character of Jennifer Walters, Bruce Banner’s cousin who becomes the hero She-Hulk.

Specifically, it states that Walters will be a “future member of the Avengers” – which would make her the first character to transition from TV to cinema in the MCU.

The rumour chimes with previous comments made by Marvel boss Kevin Feige, in which he confirmed She-Hulk would appear in MCU films, although he refused to say whether this meant as an Avenger or otherwise.
