There's been a lot of rumors and rumblings as to who is and isn't going to make an appearance in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. The biggest one, this week, was that Carol Danvers was close to being cast and would appear in the film, according to an Instagram post that popped up saying the character was close to being cast and then some leaked pictures from an Age of Ultron toy set displayed a Captain Marvel figure.

However, it's not the case, according to a new report from Nerdist. A source close to production told the site that Captain Marvel will not appear in Age of Ultron. Many are still holding out that she'll appear in a post-credit sequence as well.

Avengers: Age of Ultron opens up on May 1, 2015.

Can't say I'm surprised. Joss Whedon doesn't seem to want her involved, and the huge wait for a solo film makes her seem like an afterthought to the studio. :/

Why do you say that? Avengers AoU had been done filming for months by the time the even announced that she would be getting her solo movie. She has no place in that movie. Also, why would a long wait make her seem like an afterthought? A 100 million dollar budget movie is an afterthought? Plus, wouldn't that logic (long wait time = afterthought) imply that the Inhumans is also an afterthought?

Maybe it's time for a set of weekly teasers that slowly reveal a list of characters that won't be in the movie?

"This May! Get ready! To not see!

Groot!

Luke Skywalker!

Jay Gatsby!

And more!

This film is not yet rated."

This better not be true, there better at least be a Carol Danvers F@&$ing cameo in there! It's bad enough we had to wait until 2018 in the first place, and now we have to wait through ANOTHER GOD D@MN SPIDER-MAN MOVIE FIRST and now we have to wait five more months until it's released in the @$$ end of 2018. She better make a cameo here, and she better God D@mn we'll be in Avengers Infinity War both parts! And again, for making us wait longer for Black Panther, Captain Mavel, and Inhumans...

Up yours Sony and Spider-Man.

Up

Yours

Captain Marvel is ruled out...Carol Danvers is not. At least that's how it reads to me.

Hey, if they're not all going to be in this movie can I see the the one they are going to be in? I think it would be pretty damn awesome.

Captain Marvel may not appear, but that doesn't mean Carol Danvers won't. There's always a chance she may appear as an Easter Egg or in a post-credit scene.

I like the way you think.. but if you're right, I hope it's not for a post-credit scene:

I want someone to call Pilot Danvers over a radio or something and a woman's voice respond. If we see her I hope it's just a helmeted, female pilot named Danvers. That should be the easter egg.

It would be too much if she showed up. I don't think the movie should have more than 4 all new avengers.

I don't see why people are angry about this; there's enough characters in this film anyways.

Agreed. Honestly with all of the hints at the Kree over on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and with Marvel exploring the Inhumans, who are a result of the Kree experimenting on humanity, I have a feeling we'll be seeing some reference to Carol or even Mar-Vell at some point in the near future.

Pre superpowered Carol Danvers would have been a a nice fit on Agents of SHIELD, if only more people would watch that show. They could show her just as the air force pilot, and then when its time for the movie, we would have already got to know her as a person, so we could focus more on her becoming a superhero.

@war_killer: I had not thought about Agents of SHIELD... What if.......... Mar-Vell is introduced in AoS and that eventually leads to the Carol connection?!

...I wouldn't think she was going to...they probably were finishing up Age of Ultron when they announced a Captain Marvel movie...and it probably wasn't but a week or two ago when she was apparently cast. I would think that we would first see her appear somehow in Civil War, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, or even Agents of Shield.

We need more kree in the MCU before we get captain Marvel so to me that means the inhumans and maybe GoTG 2. I would like to see USAF major danvers in the avengers though.

Well Im pretty torn about a live Carol anyway...on one hand shes one of my favorite heroes ever and I cant wait to see her rock onscreen, on the other hand having her appear as Captain Marvel in a movie will destroy any chance of her returning to her real name and looks which kinda would suck hard...

@aquamanisthebest:

jk. Its obvious that Carol wasn't going to be in Age of Ultron, there is already nine avengers in it. Three of which are being introduced in this film and that is not including Ultron and other supporting characters like Fury and Von Strucker. Regardless of Spiderman's involvement, Carol wouldn't have been introduced until at least Civil War or Ragnarok.

Good, I love Carol Danvers but she doesnt need to be crammed into AOU, she's going to have her own movie, so I'd rather wait for her first appearance to be there rather than in a crowded Avengers movie.

But, Carol is already known as Captain Marvel and Miss Marvel has already been passed down. Pretty sure they're going by "Captain Marvel" to solidify her new found title.. just like Dick going to Nightwing.

@saint_sophie: That doesnt say much, Carol was already Binary, Warbird and whatnot and she always returned to her original name. Khamala is the 4th person using the name Ms. Marvel. There are only 2 reasons why things wouldnt return back to normal like they have everytime in the past: Because of lawsuits (which was the reason why she got the name change in the first place), or because the wide masses identity her with her new name due to the MCU.
