Is Captain Marvel One of New Members in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON?

If you are sensitive to potential spoilers proceed with caution. Marvel Studios is reportedly getting “cold-feet” concerning the long-rumored Captain Marvel cameo in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

According to Badass Digest, Captain America “will assemble a team that is a mix of familiar and new faces, leading forward into Phase Three” at the end of the movie. The only character specifically revealed is Ms. Marvel, aka Captain Marvel, but the appearance of the heroine would be included simply to establish the fact that she exists within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The website reports:

But now I’m hearing that Marvel has cold feet about including her in the film. Not because they’re against the character – my sources assure me she is coming and it’s very plausible she could be on the team in ‘Avengers 3’ – but because 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.

In fact, Marvel Studios is no longer fond of doing origin stories like they did in the first Iron Man and Captain America: The First Avenger or simply dropping a fully-formed character into the Universe either.

This is part of the reason why you won’t see Black Panther in the movie, despite the film visiting Wakanda so Ultron can get vibranium. There’s enough time passed between the end of the action in Age of Ultron and that final scene for Carol Danvers (Ms. Marvel) to get powers, a costume and have a career as a hero, but the powers-that-be aren’t sure how this will play on film.

Well, we won’t know the answers for sure until next summer. Avengers: Age of Ultron opens on May 1, 2015 with Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and Mark Ruffalo as Hulk; Aaron Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen are added as Quick Silver and his twin sister Scarlet Witch.

What do you believe is the best way to approach Danvers character? There’s still potential for Captain Marvel standalone movie to sneak in before the release date of The Avengers 3 (which could easily be down the road May 2018).
