Is Captain Marvel in ‘Age of Ultron,’ or Isn’t She?

Warning: Possible Avengers: Age of Ultron spoilers ahead!

Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye comprised the original cinematic lineup of Marvel’s Avengers, and a trio of new additions in the way in Age of Ultron: Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and Vision.

But that’s not all, according to a new rumor from Badass Digest’s Devin Faraci, who contends that, by the end of the Joss Whedon sequel, even more heroes will enter the fray:

“At the end of Age of Ultron Cap will assemble a team that is a mix of familiar and new faces, leading forward into Phase Three. It’s an exciting mission statement for Marvel Studios, letting audiences know that the Avengers team is more than just the guys who were in the first film. The make-up of that team is, technically, up in the air until that scene is shot (I suspect it’s being saved for either scheduled reshoots or will be snuck into the schedule of Captain America 3, which goes before cameras early next year), but Joss Whedon’s script did indicate who would be on that team.”

Faraci says that Captain Marvel, originally intended to be a part of this end-of-the-movie cameo sequence, might get cut. According to the report, the studio has plans to include Carol Danvers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe — and soon — but “they’re not certain they want to introduce her in this way. They basically aren’t certain they want to just drop her into the MCU fully formed in a team movie.”

Take what you will out of the report. We’ll see the full squad in all of its mighty glory when Avengers: Age of Ultron assembles on May 1, 2015.

    Honestly they could do at least a three-movie “Captain Marvel” franchise — Movie 1: Mar-Vell comes to earth, Carol gets empowered in the final battle; Movie 2, adapt “The Death of Captain Marvel” with Carol as Ms. Marvel prominently; movie 3, Carol becomes the new Captain Marvel, maybe introduce Genis-Vell and Phyla-Vell (or even Monica Rambeau as another prominent Marvel woman) as well. Just one thought.

    I doubt she was ever going to be in AoU. This website is often wrong when it comes to MCU scoops. But that being said an easter egg/hint and or name drop of Carol Danvers is more likely to happen. Like they did with Dr. Doctor Strange in TWS.

    I can understand not wanting to just drop her fully formed. But the character has so much convoluted history, that I think presenting her fully formed and then slowly introducing elements of what made her, her, throughout her first movie would be a great move.

    And I would like to add, I’d love it if she was Captain Marvel first and is not presented as Binary or Ms. Marvel.

    I wonder how many ad dollars Devin’s raked in with his latest run of bullshit rumors.

  • SorryNotSorry

    I’d watch the shit out of that. Throw in Spider-Woman (Carol’s best friend) and you’ve got a killer flick.

  • Cowtools

    My thoughts exactly.

  • Tophman

    Besides, didn’t Marvel just announce: “no more origin stories after Ant Man?” So it makes sense to just drop her into the action and let us figure out who she is & what makes her tick.

  • Dan Wheeler

    Sounds like bullshit speculation.

    I’d probably just have her as Capt. Danvers fighter pilot who takes out a bunch of Ultron robots tailing Iron Man or something. Bring her in like Cody Smuthers. You know who she is by the end of the movie but not integral. Maybe at the end she is one of a bunch of jets who get” abducted” in a after credit Kree starship shot. Ties in GOTG and the “who was that blue alien in Shield?

    Exactly, by this point in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Iron Man has been around for 6 years and the Hulk a bit longer than that (maybe) considering that Incredible Hulk occurred after Iron Man 2 (continuity-wise, not release date) and that banner had been in hiding for a bit.

    I guess they really wanted Iron Man to be the first modern hero and Captain America just a war story at that point.

    That universe is moving and Marvel needs to show even outside of Agents of SHIELD that the world is continually finding new heros and villians.
