Ava Ayala – Isabela Merced
The story of Ava Ayala could start with her as a high school student struggling to fit in and find her place in the world. She is a bright student with a love of science, but she often feels like an outsider due to her family’s history as superheroes.
One day, while visiting her brother Hector in prison, Ava could discover the mystical amulet that once belonged to him. Intrigued by its power, she takes it home and begins to experiment with it. To her surprise, she finds that she too has been chosen to become White Tiger.
As Ava Ayala continues her journey as White Tiger, she finds herself facing increasingly difficult challenges. She quickly discovers that being a superhero is not just about fighting villains, but also about using her powers to help those in need.
Jenna Ortega was already rumored to play the role of Ava or some form of White Tiger. However, another great actress who would be great in the role is Isabela Merced. The 21-year-old star already showed her versatility as an actress. She starred as a live-action Dora in Dora and the Lost City of Gold (2019). Most recently, she played Rachel Cooper in the Netflix film Sweet Girl.
How could White Tiger fit with Daredevil?
One day, while on patrol, Ava could witness someone being kidnapped by a group of thugs, springing into action and using her powers to take down the kidnappers and rescue the person in need. However, when the police arrive, they could mistake Ava for one of the kidnappers and arrest her.
Enter Matt Murdock, the blind lawyer who is also known as Daredevil. Matt could then take on Ava’s case, using his skills as a lawyer to prove her innocence and clear her name. As they work together, Ava and Matt form a close bond, with Matt even offering to train Ava in martial arts and help her become a better superhero.
But as Ava becomes more involved with Daredevil and his world, she also finds herself facing new dangers. She could be targeted by a group of powerful villains who seek to use her powers for their own purposes, and she must rely on the help of Daredevil and his allies to stop them.
Ava must balance her duties as White Tiger with her bond with Matt. She must also confront the challenges of being a young superhero in a world full of danger and corruption.
