Marvel’s Phase 3 will feature a massive set of new players for the MCU, and one of the most exciting is the introduction of Carol Danvers, also known as Captain Marvel. Since the early days of the MCU, fans have begged for a Captain Marvel movie to hit theaters, and now that it is, the new question is, who’s going to play her? Well, according to a new rumor, we’ll find out a lot sooner than expected:
To debut the character in Age of Ultron would be huge. In addition, it would also serve as a great way to tease the changes that are set to come with Phase 3. Among other things, it could entice Whedon to throw his name into the hat of screenwriters up for the job.
Right now, we know the Russo Brothers are directing Avengers: Infinity War while Whedon’s future with the studio remains unknown. It’s clear why he opted not to stick around for another Avengers film, but would his fatigue prevent him from writing a Captain Marvel movie if offered? It’s hard to say, but it would be a great idea if it happened.
