Marvel Avengers Rumors: Captain Marvel vs. Ultron?

*Warning: will talk about new Marvel characters and their potential role in the MCU. All of you spoiler purists have been warned!

There are some interesting rumors floating around that Captain Marvel may be getting a guest appearance in the upcoming film Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. These are intriguing rumors because Captain Marvel, aka Ms. Marvel otherwise known as Carol Danvers will be starring in her own Marvel film in 2018. Now there haven’t been any announcements about casting, screenwriter, or confirmed director. There was one rumor that Angelina Jolie may direct but I find that very unlikely.

Now it would seem a pipe-dream that Marvel fans would get to see Captain Marvel this early in the MCU game, but there is an intriguing piece of evidence that has a Marvel fan like myself reeling. If you were to walk into a Disney Store or head to DisneyStore.com then you would find this toy.

Now let me explain what we you are seeing here. This is a Marvel Figurine pack with 6 figurines inside. Now we can see some familiar faces such as, Hulk, Captain America, and Iron Man. We can also see some new faces such as, Ultron, Vision, and finally Captain Marvel. Now I am sure you’re thinking “so what?”, but that’s where you are wrong. Disney is known for interconnectivity, especially with the Marvel franchise. Disney could have used any character as a toy, Quicksilver or Falcon. Let’s not forget Disney could have used a different female figure such as, Scarlet Witch or Black Widow, who by the way is now appearing in her 4th Marvel film.

Why wouldn’t a veteran in the Marvel game be chosen over a newbie who isn’t even in the posters or trailers? Seems awfully suspicious to have Captain Marvel in a toy set linked with the new movie Age of Ultron. Now I hate to spin rumors, but it seems likely that we are going to get a little preview of Captain Marvel. Now where or how is still a mystery. Remember in Captain America: Winter Soldier we heard Doctor Strange’s name, Stephen Vincent Strange very, very briefly. But since there is already a toy I have assume we will get a visual glimpse.

Also let us look at DisneyStore.com’s description of the toy; “Amp-up the playtime action with this set of six fully-sculpted figurines featuring a new assortment of Marvel Super Heroes teamed against Ultron under the the Avengers umbrella.” Wait, what?!?! It is looking pretty definite that Captain Marvel will be getting an appearance in Age of Ultron.

Now before we get too excited about Captain Marvel joining the fight against Ultron’s Pinocchio theme-song loving army, I doubt she will be in it for very long because this movie is already packed to the brim with new characters. Yet, it still seems strange that Disney would make a toy for a character that the audience may see for only a few seconds.

Now here is my theory: I believe the Marvel Cinematic will tease a slew of new characters in Age of Ultron in the post-credit sequence to get people excited and curious about phase 3. This would include characters like Black Panther and Captain Marvel. But tell me what you think: am I totally off-base or does this seem like verifiable evidence? Just remember Disney and Marvel always have a reason for everything they do. Thank you and please share with all of your Marvel friends.

    Joss Whedon recently admitted that there are characters in the movie that haven’t been announced yet so you may be on to something. May 1st can’t get here soon enough.

    I don’t know how much you care about movie scoopers on twitter, but @elmayimbe who works for latino review said more or less the same thing this morning, and it wasn’t toy related. It looks likely she will be in it, even if it’s a brief cameo, or post credit scene.

    Hmmm, the timing is right; Latino Review are saying that the role of Carol Danvers has been cast….

    Roll on April 23 :)
