It’s almost a guarantee that the sequel to Marvel’s The Avengers will feature an expanded roster of new characters, and according to The Daily Mail, we might know who the next addition to the squad will be. The site is reporting that Ms. Marvel will be introduced in the movie and that both Emily Blunt and Ruth Wilson are currently up for the role.
Again, this is just a rumor, but it would make sense given how Ms. Marvel has been pushed into the spotlight in the recent Marvel comics. In the original comics, Major Carol Danvers is caught in an explosion of alien technology that alters her DNA and gives her super strength, durability, speed, and the ability to fly. In recent months she has assumed the mantle of the new Captain Marvel. We'll have more on this story as it becomes available.
Avengers 2 will be released on May 1, 2015.
