According to a rumor, Carol Danvers was set to debut in the Avengers sequel, but the scene may be cut because the timing isn't right.



Source: Badass Digest

Great news, true believers! Marvel Studios, the movie company that can do no wrong, has taken another baby step on the road to making a female superhero movie! According to a report on Badass Digest, Carol Danvers, one of Marvel's most well-known female superheroes known as Ms. Marvel or Captain Marvel, is set to appear in one of the movie's closing scenes, establishing her for a possible solo movie in Marvel's cinematic Phase 3:

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. I won't reveal all the names - and some have changed in between drafts, by the way - but one character who has always been in this new team is Captain Marvel.

 

Well, maybe we're being a bit hasty. You see, according to Devin Faraci, that was the plan, but it might not be any longer:

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 other words, "the timing isn't right" - the favorite excuse of superhero movie makers for why they would love to make a female superhero flick, but gosh darn it, the timing just isn't right for it. You see, when it comes to making a male superhero movie, timing is less important. Take Ant-Man, for instance. A film about a wife-beating nerd who can shrink himself and talk to bugs is box office gold that sells itself. It doesn't even matter who directs it. Marvel can just pump out whatever crap they feel like for Ant-Man, stick it in theaters, and rake in the cash.

But for a female superhero movie, you have to get the "timing" right, for reasons we can only assume are related to how delicate and fragile female superheroes are. And the timing isn't "right" right now. When will the timing be right? The timing isn't right to tell you. But hang in there, female superhero fans! Don't get your proverbial panties in a bunch. We're sure that one day the stars will align and one of the white men in charge of making all these superhero flicks will make one with a lead who isn't a white man. One day. When the timing is right.

Having a character shoe horned like hawkeye was in Thor will be a waste.

Introduce her in Cap 3 (like BW was in Iron Man 2) so she can be in avengers 3.

Why is there such an uproar over this?

Another question that isn't being asked is; who are these new Avengers? Just because Captain Marvel may or may not be on the team doesn't mean that we won't see the Wasp, She-Hulk, Mockingbird, etc. Plus, it's a pretty sold bet that the Scarlet Witch will probably become a member of the team as well.

They have a huge roll call to play with.

I would just love to see certain favs hit the screen and Carol is one of them. Wonder Man is another along with She-Hulk.

Iron Man - check!
Thor - check!
Captain America - check!
The Vision - check!
Scarlet Witch - check!
Quicksilver - check!
Hawkeye - check!
Black Widow - check!
Ant-Man/Giant-Man - ?
The Wasp - ?
She-Hulk - ?
Wonderman - ?
Black Panther - ?
Ms Marvel/Captain Marvel - ?
Photon/Pulsar/Spectrum - ?

Well yeah definitely those three but it can't just be them, can it? I would imagine that we'll get 2 or 3 surprise cameos alongside the predictable ones.

I want a good captain marvel movie so much. I don't care of about her 15 seconds getting cut out of avengers 2 as long as they actually make a movie with her.
I hear that Joss Whedon has a good handle on powerful, blonde, female super heroes. Wonder if his schedule is about to clear up in the near future.
Yeah, Yeah, I know I will go draft my fantasy Marvel movie team over in the corner.

Now that they've built the Avengers (and the sequel will add to it), they should probably just keep it to characters who would have a lot of difficulty carrying their own movies or characters where the actors may want more money than Marvel is willing to spend on them.

Thanks Marvel!

I think Mockingbird is a hard maybe, considering how I've heard she's going to show up on Agents of SHIELD

I wouldn't rule out the possibility of Bug making at least a cameo in the sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy.
