My Personal Queen Ms. Marvel Rumored for THE AVENGERS Sequel

Joss Whedon's highly-anticipated followup to this year's highest-grossing film, Marvel's The Avengers, is a couple years away from commencing production. However, the praised writer-director knows “one or two” new characters that will be added to superhero team's roster. And according to Daily Mail, MailOnline at least one of those characters will be Carol Danvers, AKA Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel, who's been widely speculated. And the U.K. newspaper has even listed two familiar names supposedly competing for the big role.


“Meanwhile, British actresses Emily Blunt and Ruth Wilson are head-to-head in a race for the most sought-after new female role in Hollywood. Emily, 29, and Ruth, 30, are both hotly tipped to play superhero Ms. Marvel in Avengers 2, the sequel to Avengers Assemble.”


Because Amber and Yvonne are often brought into the discussion for Ms. Marvel by fans, I included them, too.

Who would you like to see as Ms. Marvel?

Emily Blunt
172(23.3%)
Ruth Wilson
159(21.6%)
Amber Heard
84(11.4%)
Yvonne Strahovski
168(22.8%)
No thanks to all of these
154(20.9%)



Considering the Daily Mail has never been known for breaking casting scoops as major as this one, this rumor should be taken lightly. It's also worth noting that both Emily Blunt and Ruth Wilson were included in a feature written in August by CBM's very own Josh Wilding, where he suggested five actresses who could portray Carol Danvers in Marvel's The Avengers sequel. However, if true, this'd be Marvel's third attempt in nabbing Blunt for a role. She was initially attached to play Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) in Iron Man 2, and then turned down Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) in last year's Captain America: The First Avenger. What do you think?

I need Ms. Marvel in the MCU. Please make it happen, Marvel!
