Mystery Woman in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Trailer Revealed

There's a scene in the Avengers: Age of Ultrontrailer (if you haven't watched it yet, click here right now and then come back) where the team of heroes is just hanging out in Avengers Tower. Except there's one actress that no one immediately recognized. Her appearance caused plenty of speculation, but now Buzzfeed says they know the identity of the actress. Disney has informed them the person is Kim Soo-huyn (a.k.a. Claudia Kim).

No Caption Provided

Disney didn't tell the site who she's playing, but Buzzfeed made a pretty good guess. They believe she could be Suzi Endo, a character who worked at Stark Industries' cybernetics department. Not a shabby guess considering Ultron's the big bad, right? Do you think that's likely who the actress has been cast as or do you believe she's someone else?

No Caption Provided

Avengers: Age of Ultron is directed by Joss Whedon and opens May 1, 2015.

Makes sense though she probably will only have a cameo

A random female to avoid too much of a sausage party? (That's why Maria's invited and not Nick?)

Okay so a Korean actress, and shots of Cap and Widow in Korea, as well as a Samsung tablet product placement, not that that means anything. Wonder what's happening in the Orient ...

Also, if you search that name, Kim Soo-huyn, a male actor comes up.

Well Maria Hill did go to work for Stark after SHIELD fell. Makes sense to me that she would be there.

No one knows where Nick Fury is.

Suzi Endo is a pretty weak and horrible guess in my opinion. Considering how irrelevant has been for so long.

It's probably more likely Wendy Kawasaki who worked for Tony Stark for a while and then went on to be Captain Marvel's assistant. It will likely just be Marvel trying to establish some familiar characters to help set the Captain Marvel movie up.

I am 100% certain that I said it was her in the first article created here for the original leak.

My guess, just a guess, is at the very least she is Monica Chang. But i have a suspicion she will have a dual role and be Monica Chang/Mantis or MoonDragon and splice 2 characters together.

@sachmoo: That would make sense since they made her all important with A.I. stuff last year.

I thought it was jane at first since she is next to thor but when the clear picture came out I knew it was kim. had no idea who she was playing then marvel announced this Korean comic introducing a new Korean female avenger....coincidence?? most likely they are not going to debut that character anytime soon if ever but hey its out there now. if people say she is this suzi person (I don't read iron man so don't know her) then guess that's who she's playing. but would be cool if she was the character from electric rain then we could have our first Asian super hero up there

I just don't think people should get their hopes up and start imagining all these different ideas of superheroes she could be because it could turn out she is just a scientist.

I would love it if Moondragon made it into the film's line up!

it seems unlikely to me that that's the case, but not impossible.. it would give the team a connection to the GotG, since Moondragon is Drax the Destroyer's daughter, which could make her character more relevant down the line.

Also, not to toot my own horn, I thought the original poster with Cap and Stark, with their backs to each other and Ultron in the middle was foreshadowing a rift between the two and eventual Civil War scenario. I could have read to Much into it, But hey, maybe I was right.

Perhaps she's playing Janet Pym, as part of a tie-in with the upcoming Ant-man film, with casting inspiration coming out of the Ultimate universe, a la Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.

Doubt it since Evangeline Lily is Hope Van Dyne and Michael Douglas is Hank Pym in Ant-man.

@k4tzm4n: The only character I can think of is Monica Chang, since she's the only Asian character I know and she's part of Shield in the comics. I'm not sure she's Korean though and it could open a possibly of being the new Black Widow, if Black Widow ends up dying. :-(

She's the woman wearing red and a black jacket IIRC. Not the unidentified character the article is talking about.

When I didn't know what actress the extra dark haired woman in the trailer was, I'd hoped it was Jane Foster. Just so she could be the major character Joss has teased will get "Jossed".

Do you ever wonder if maybe people are analysing this trailer too much? Seriously, you see a distant shot of the Avengers with a random woman in the background and suddenly it's all "WHO IS THIS MYSTERY WOMAN? SECRETS REVEALED WE'RE ONTO YOU MARVEL!"

Nobody seems to have considered that she might just have been bringing Stark some coffee or something, why is everything such a huge deal? Get a grip guys...

I think that too, like she is alerting the avengers and asking them help so they could stop Ultron right?

Nope this is definitely Captain Marvel, I can't believe the many marvel fans out there and don't know who this is, most of you weren't even born, Captain marvel pretty much ran the Avenger just as long as anyone, possibly the most powerful as Earth heros are concerned in Marvels arsonal, They only call her up when the Avengers are going up against some major heavy hitters, like Thanos. Bringing Black Panthers sister in the mix would be pointless. With upcoming movies leading to the Infinity War they all don't stand a chance without her and her powers.
