The fine folks over at Latino Review are reporting that there are whispers that Marvel has quietly cast their Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, and that we might see her first appear in Joss Whedon’s upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron.
LR’s report also goes on to state that comic writer Kelly Sue DeConnick was lobbying for the screenwriting duties on the upcoming Captain Marvel film but there has been no confirmation that she actually got the assignment. Not surprisingly, iconic Captain Marvel writer Jim Starlin is aboard the film adaptation as a consultant.
RT! HOT #MARVEL #RUMOR ABOUT #CAPTAINMARVEL #SPOILER Apparently, from what I’m being told, the rumor is that the studio has cast the role of Carol Danvers & keeping it top secret. I’m also being told we will first see her in #AVENGERS #AgeofUltron as originally written in previous drafts of the screenplay. In terms of the standalone film, the Marvel brain trust has blocked out the plot & story with the intention of bringing an established writer to write the script. Comic writer Kelly Sue DeConnick wanted to take a crack at writing the screenplay but I’m not sure if she got the gig. Also, I’m told legendary comic writer Jim Starlin, who has a rich history with Captain Marvel is aboard the project as a consultant. All of the above is #UNCONFIRMED so take with grain of salt until further notice but it’s within the realm of plausibility.
Looks like we’ll find out soon enough, as Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in a little over a month on May 1!
