The Avengers: Endgame trailer has fans excited for the new footage. But, it also has them donning their detective caps and dissecting every frame to figure out any secrets they can from the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 3 Finale. Now known as “The Infinity Saga”, the last decade of films all culminate with this movie. One thing that has gone well for Marvel has been the inclusion of the Russo Brothers, who have helmed 4 movies, including this one. With all the great storytelling the brothers have done, one cheeky thing they’ve added in is the Alfred Hitchcock-esque cameos from Joe Russo.
Now, with Endgame, it seems to be becoming a family affair.
While on the red carpet for the Captain Marvel premiere, Joe Russo introduced his daughter, Ava, and admitted that she had a secret role in the upcoming Avengers movie.
“This is my daughter Ava, who’s actually playing a secret role in Avengers: Endgame. We’re not talking about what it is yet. That’s it and that’s all you’re going to know.”
Now, eagle eyed fans believe that Ava will be playing Hawkeye’s daughter, from the trailer. The shot of Barton training a young woman in archery seems to be a flashback (as signified by Clint’s house arrest ankle monitor), so it is assumed it’s his daughter. But, it could also be the rumored Kate Bishop, set to arrive in the MCU with the also rumored Young Avengers. Could we be seeing Ava Russo taking a rather larger role in the future of the MCU? Probably not. She’s more than likely playing Barton’s daughter, one of the victims of the “Decimation”, that pushes Barton into the much darker Ronin persona.
Of course, we won’t actually know anything until Avengers: Endgame premieres this April.
