That’s right – news crops up online that Ms Marvel may play a role in Joss Whedon’s Avengers Sequel AND two actresses are already being hotly tipped to compete for the role! Check it out!
First of all, this is nothing more than rumour. In fact, it’s worse than that. It’s a rumours dropped absently into an article about something else entirely.
The plus side is, it’s a reputable online news paper (Daily Mail). They’d also have absolutely no reason just to drop the names of two actresses and state specifically they’re going for the same the role. A role which hasn’t even been announced to be involved in the Avengers Sequel. Sounds a bit strange that they would just pluck this character name from the air?
But I’m getting ahead of myself and you probably don’t know what the hell I’m talking about. Well here’s the snippet of information extracted from the Daily Mail article:
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, below, star of The Young Victoria, and Ruth, 30, from TV’s Luther, are both hotly tipped to play superhero Ms Marvel in Avengers 2, the sequel to Avengers Assemble, one of the biggest box office hits of all time.
The new movie is due to begin shooting next year. Whoever is chosen will star alongside Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr and Chris Hemsworth, who will reprise their comic-book hero roles.
Like I said, weird that they’d just pluck this character from teh air, right? It’s well known that Whedon plans to expand the Avengers roster for the second outing of the epic superhero team but the question of just who has thusfar eluded us, with rumours of Edgar Wrights Ant-Man and the Wasp being top of the list until, perhaps, now.
Is Ms Marvel a likely contender? Do you want to see Ms Marvel in the Avengers sequel? If so AND this rumour is accurate, who would you prefer to take the role? Emily Blunt or Ruth Wilson? Or somebody else entirely? Let me know what you think in the comments section below – it’d be awesome to hera your opinion.
