Ms. Marvel Rumoured for Age of Ultron
Ok so the rumour about Paul Bettany becoming Vision for Avengers 2 has finally been confirmed, however news of another hero joining the Age of Ultron cast has surfaced thanks to Latino Review.
Ms. Marvel is reported to be one of the final characters being brought into the now even more epic-sounding Avengers sequel – this is a rumour that so far has no confirmed source for it, but Latino Review are usually very on-point when it comes to this kind of stuff.
For the uninitiated, the short version of Ms. Marvel’s origin is the result of Carol Danvers being caught up in an explosion with the Kree warrior Mar-Vell, aka Captain Marvel. This causes their DNA to merge, resulting in Danvers emerging as Ms. Marvel – a perfect hybrid of human and Kree genes. Along with having all of Captain Marvel’s Kree knowledge and training, she’s endowed with superhuman strength, speed, agility, stamina, durability, as well as flight, a 7th sense, energy absorption like Sebastian Shaw in First Class… and a lot more. Ms. Marvel took on several monikers – Binary, Warbird as well as Captain Marvel in honour of where she received her powers.
In terms of casting, we have almost nothing yet. BSG’s Katee Sackhoff was loosely linked to the role, but if I’m honest I don’t think she’d be right for it. Don’t get me wrong – I love Katee Sackhoff, but I think she might be better suited to a role like Harley Quinn.
With Ultron, Vision, Ms. Marvel, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and the rest of the Avengers, Age of Ultron is (on paper) shaping up to be a true opus for Joss Whedon. Is it too much for one movie? Who would you cast as Ms. Marvel if this rumour is confirmed? Comment and let us know!
