It looks like the Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to get bigger. A new report reveals that Big Hero 6 will be making their live-action debut in an MCU project soon.

The Disinsider reports that some of the characters from Big Hero 6 will finally get their live-action debut and that they could be joining the MCU. Although it was not revealed whether all members of the team will be crossing over into the franchise, the report pointed out that Hiro Hamada and Baymax are the ones to look out for.

This might sound like a far-fetched idea but it's best to remember that the 2014 computer-animated film was only a loose adaptation of Man of Action comic books published by Marvel Comics. Although we're hoping that the MCU is eyeing the cute Disney versions of these characters, it's most likely that we'll see the comic book versions in live-action instead.

In the comic books, Big Hero 6 is led by Hiro Takachiho, a 13-year-old boy who created a hydro-powered robotic synthformer named Baymax. Hiro took over as leader of the team after the departure of Silver Samurai and Sunfire. Additionally, Baymax is a robot that can transform into a robot or a mecha in the comics.

We love the cuddly versions of Big Hero 6 and they are undoubtedly the ones that fans are hoping would show up in the MCU. However, we're also interested in seeing the comic book versions of the characters in live-action because Baymax is going to look amazing for sure.

For now, Marvel Studios has not yet confirmed any plans to bring Big Hero 6 into the MCU. With that in mind, it's best to take this with a grain of salt.
