Knott’s role is still a mystery, but there are a handful of signs pointing to Hulkling, one of Marvel Comics’ classic Young Avengers team members. Most of this speculation tie back to a rumor released over a year ago from the Illuminerdi, saying that Hulkling would be introduced in WandaVision.
Knott is either 23 or 24 years old, which fits right into the age range listed in the casting call.
In two new posts on Instagram, Isaiah Knott revealed that he is joining the cast of Marvel Studios’ WandaVision. His role is currently listed as an uncredited “boy next door,” and there is no confirmed timeframe for when he will appear in the series.
Knott’s first post is from January 15, which includes a picture of himself in a WandaVision sweatshirt with the following caption:
💥🏠📺 SURPRISE 📺🏠💥 had to keep this under wraps for a while but am excited to finally be able to announce that i had the incredible opportunity to be a part of @marvelstudios’ new series, @wandavision. to be involved in a MCU production (let alone a series dedicated to my favorite avenger) has been one of the most surreal/magical experiences & a dream come true. extremely grateful & ecstatic to join such a talented & “visionary” piece.
watch #WandaVision now streaming on @disneyplus!!! new episodes every friday — keep an eye out you might see a familiar face 😉
Looking at the picture that Knott posted, it gives a feel relating back to the 2010s sitcom Modern Family, which is confirmed to be an inspiration for a later episode of WandaVision. This show deals with gay themes through its core cast of characters, which could also tie to Hulkling’s relationship with Billy in the comics.
