    IDK, they mention a casting call but they don't actually post it? And I feel like Captain Marvel 2 would make more sense for Hulkling's introduction than anything that's shooting this year.

    Now a second site is claiming they've gotten even more info on the casting call for Hulkling and they're specifically claiming it's for WandaVision.
    https://www.theilluminerdi.com/2020/...t-wandavision/
    "Marvel Studios is searching for a teenager or young adult male to play Teddy (age 16 – 23), describing him as a Skrull who requires help from S.W.O.R.D. in order to remain safely on Earth."

    What's really interesting though is that Charles Murphy, a reliable source who also broke those news about a gay character in The Eternals, retweeted this site's article. Also the person I mentioned on Reddit claiming Billy will be a teen by the end of WandaVision says that Billy has "almost certainly" been cast by now. WandaVision has been filming for a while but will continue filming through March.

    Yeah, that seems more concrete. Also 16-23 is a better age range than 15-20. I wonder how SWORD having to protect him or something would go?

    Also, I just thought one thing about Hulkling in the MCU: He could have two moms. Aka the unused Nightcrawler origin. With Mar-Vell being a woman, the first idea that comes to mind is genderbending Princess Anelle too, but, as skrull are shapeshifters, you could just have female Anelle impregnating Mar-Vell lol.

    Given Marvels one-step-at-a-time approach to diversity I'd imagine there goal right now is to just to get there global audiences used to the idea of non-straight characters in their movies, I think we're a bit away from anyone attempting that storyline.

    Though does anyone know if there ever was an incident like that in the comics? I know Xavin was gender fluid but has it ever been established that a male Skrull could potentially conceive and deliver a child to term and vice versa.

    Given that Mar-vell long dead and they're looking for a teenager I'd say Teddy being a decadent of hers seems more likely, though if he is already with Sword it does potentially change up quite a bit, a big part of his story was discovering he wasn't human and heir to a legacy, also it implies he didn't grow up on Earth but instead grew up among Skrulls and their culture.

    I literally never heard of this Illuminerdi website before, but the fact that two separate sources are claiming that casting for the character is underway and it got insiders talking about that is, well... something. I definitely trust Charles Murphy. Also, apparently Daniel Richtman posted this as a scoop on his Patreon shortly before GWW broke the news, so that makes it at least 3 different sources claiming the same.

    I'm just slightly worried about him being described as a Skrull only. Hopefully they're not erasing his Kree heritage, which is just as important.

    I don't think Mar-Vell will be Teddy's parent at all. She died in 1989; even assuming that Teddy was a newborn back then, that would put him in his 30s on present day. Even if he's supposed to look younger than his actual age like Carol, I don't think Marvel would make a grown ass adult Teddy be the boyfriend to teenage Billy. If they want to make him the appropriate age, he either will have a completely different set of parents, OR they can say Mar-Vell had a child, and this child eventually became Teddy's parent, making him her grandson instead. I like the latter option.

    I thought about that too, but the description is kinda vague. He needs help from S.W.O.R.D., but it doesn't say how exactly. Maybe he doesn't actively seek their help, but whoever is taking care of him on Earth (Ms. Altman, if we're going by the comics) does that to keep him safe and he has no idea what's going on. I prefer this scenario over radically changing his upbringing, 'cause that might as well change who he is as a character entirely...

    I would like Teddy to be half-Kree at least but yeah, I confess I was never all that tied to Mar-Vell being his dad since surprisingly few writers ever actually did anything with it. It's an interesting story idea that never really got explored.

    I'm still waiting on him to meet Phyla and Genis (when he inevitably comes back).

    I think that's probably about to change with Empyre.

    I'm still waiting on him to meet Phyla and Genis (when he inevitably comes back).
    I definitely feel like he will meet Phyla soon enough, considering Al Ewing is the writer of both Empyre and Guardians Of The Galaxy. I'm not sure how much of the sibling angle will be explored, though, considering this is an AU Phyla. I really want him to meet his 616 family.

    I change the fancasts in my mind every now and then, but right now I'm thinking of Liam James for Billy and Logan Shroyer for Teddy, specially after I saw this picture of the two of them together. They're both in the 16~23 age range that it was allegedly being required for Teddy's role.

    I try not to fancast as I usually get too attached to an idea I like so when it doesn't become a reality it takes we a while to accept whoever actually got the the role on their own talents.

    I'll just say it again though I think it's important for Marvel to try get openly gay actors to play them, I think all the inevitable interviews about the "importance of the occasion to the LGBTQ community" and "progression being made" are going to come off a bit hollow coming from two straight guys.

    They're looking for actors from their late teens to early 20's and by then most of us queer people have a pretty good idea where we land on the Kinsey scale, also if we're ever going to live in a world were openly queer actors can be in viable contention for these big roles it has to start somewhere.

    Joshua Bassett from that HSM show is my newest fancast for Billy. He's extremely pretty and cute and also super popular right now which would give the show/characer a lot of buzz lol.

    He's 26, assuming the info we got from that site it's true, they're looking for 16-23. Well, but that's just a limitation for me who's trying to come up with realistic fancasts lol.
