Kevin Feige Rumored to Bring MCU’s First Superhero Detached From the Comics to Live-Action

The sixth episode witnessed the debut of Kahhori, a young Mohawk woman, who became MCU’s first original superhero after the Tesseract crash-landed in the Haudenosaunee Confederacy of pre-colonial America. And even though moving this route to craft an original story as opposed to emphasizing single choices that led to an alternate reality was bold on Marvel’s part, Kahhori instantly became a fan-favorite. This led to fans campaigning for Kahhori in live-action, and it seems Kevin Feige might be meeting the fans’ demand as per rumors she might mark her live-action debut within the next four years.

The Original VA Is Perfect to Play Kahhori in Live-Action

Considering Kahhori’s VA voiced her to perfection in What If…?, getting the original voice artist, Devery Jacobs, back for the superhero’s potential live-action debut seems par for the course. Being a Canadian Mohawk herself, accompanied by her prowess behind the mic, it’s pretty possible MCU might not look past her when it comes to Kahhori’s eventual debut. Even though Jacobs isn’t playing the native superhero in Echoes, she can still reprise Kahhori in future storylines, thanks to the multiverse, if it falls in the Kevin Feige-led MCU’s interests.

While it’s important to note that it’s all rumors, following the reception to Kahhori in the animated show, it’s not hard to see why it will be in Kevin Feige’s best interests to bring her for more. But with a season 3 of What If…? on the cards, fans might at least get to witness her back in the realm of animation soon.

What If…? is available to stream on Disney+.
