Hey, Thanos – Welcome to your tape. 13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford has officially joined the cast of the highly-anticipated Avengers 4, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Since we don’t even know what the official title for the film is yet, it comes as no surprise that no character details were announced for Langford.
Langford is best known for her role as Hannah Baker on Netflix’s successful yet controversial teen drama 13 Reasons Why. Based on Jay Asher’s best-selling novel, 13 Reasons Why followed a group of people who were drawn into the mystery of Hannah Baker’s suicide when they all received a box of tapes from her detailing their roles in her decision to end her life. The series touched on some very serious topics such as suicide and sexual assault, drawing criticism from a lot of experts, but was still renewed for a second season, which premiered earlier this year. Langford announced after season two that she would not be returning should the show be renewed for a third season (which it was) back in May. She received a Golden Globe nomination for the role in 2018.
It was also recently announced that Langford would be heading back to Netflix for a new series from Frank Miller titled Cursed, which is “a re-imagination of the Arthurian legend, told through the eyes of Nimue (Langford). It is a coming-of-age story whose themes include the obliteration of the natural world, religious terror, senseless war, and finding the courage to lead in the face of the impossible.”
Since Avengers 4 will serve as the final chapter for the first decade of the MCU, fans are preparing for the worst when it comes to some of their favorite heroes (and Chris Evans’ tweets certainly aren’t helping). While Langford’s role is still unknown, it’s exciting to learn that there will be some new players in the game when Avengers 4 hits theaters May 3, 2019.

Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
