WandaVision fans have grown fond of Kathryn Hahn’s Agatha Harkness and is set to make its own spinoff, Agatha: Coven of Chaos. At the San Diego Comic-Con, it was announced that the spinoff is set to be released in Winter 2023, which means the show’s production will start soon. While the plot point of the show has yet to be unveiled aside from Hahn reprising her role, a casting leak sets fans off with ready theories on possible Young Avengers development amid the Agatha-centric series.

According to Murphy’s Multiverse, Agatha: Coven of Chaos had a casting call leak last June looking for an actor aged 17-20 to play a gay lead character, bearing the descriptions as being ‘witty’ and ‘astute’ with a dark sense of humor and also being ‘a bit of a fanboy.’ Marvel Comics fans are quick to point out this is Billy Kaplan (aka Wiccan of the Young Avengers), one of Wanda’s sons introduced in WandaVision. Billy is rumored to have been the reincarnation of William Maximoff, one of the twins created by the Scarlet Witch in the miniseries The Vision and the Scarlet Witch, whose soul was eventually placed in the body of Billy Kaplan after clashing with Mephisto.

While it may be currently unclear as to what role Billy will be playing in the spinoff, it makes sense they may get to return seeing as Agatha had shown interest in Wanda’s children in WandaVision, which is one of the potential reasons of what Agatha has in store for the boy.

An additional casting call leak was requesting for an actor aged 18-20 to play a gay male, described as being ‘a kind soul’ with a ‘great sense of humor’, has an athletic build, and is also totally in love with his boyfriend. Without other defining factors for the other cast, fans are inclined to believe this is Teddy (aka Hulkling, a super-strong shapeshifter) of Young Avengers, whose powers were inherited from his extraterrestrial parents, Kree hero Captain Marvel and Skrull royal Princess Anelle.

With Billy set to return to the MCU and Teddy making his debut, it would not be a surprise to see Tommy, Billy’s brother in WandaVision, fight alongside them, bringing the Young Avengers even closer to reality in being produced as a series, starting with these three potential Agatha spinoff cast.
