At this point we might as well give Captain Marvel the award for Most Rumors Surrounding An Upcoming Marvel Movie Character. Besides speculation over which actress will be playing Carol Danvers in the MCU, there were rumors even before her solo film was announced in October that she would debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Earlier this week, the rumor of her appearing in the May blockbuster’s post-credits sequence rose again, though it was unconfirmed. Now, only days later, another report as come out over a possible appearance, but this time it’s not looking good for the heroine.

Sources close to the production have told Nerdist that Carol Danvers will not be appearing in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Host Jessica Chobot acknowledges that the often-mentioned post-credits sequence would be one way we could have seen her, but as it stands now it’s more likely we would see characters like Black Panther, Thanos or even Spider-Man (though that is also a slim possibility) once Avengers: Age of Ultron wraps up. So if you were looking to see one of Marvel’s most famous female superheroes among the other 11 other officially announced superheroes slated to show up in the movie, you’re likely going to be disappointed according to this new report.

One persistent claim was that Captain Marvel would be among the new team members that comprise the Avengers 2.0 team after the original team dissolves (as expected). However, she was not included in the recently reported lineup of Captain America, Black Widow, War Machine, Scarlet Witch, Vision and Falcon. As it stands now, we may have to wait until Captain Marvel's 2018 movie to get her big-screen debut, although there’s always the chance she could show up in Avengers: Infinity War Part I, which will hit theaters six months before her solo adventure. Who knows? Maybe Marvel Studios will cut us a break, and Carol could even be one of the many superheroes showing up in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War ... or as it should really be called, Avengers 2.5.

Captain Marvel is unique among the Marvel heroes in that she has one of the few that has connections to both Earth and the cosmic Marvel universe. Her powers come from being infused with Kree genes. Among her abilities are flight, energy projection, and superhuman strength. Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has already said that she won’t be appearing in the intergalactic adventure’s 2017 sequel, but she can work excellently as the connective tissue between the human and alien sides of the Marvel movie universe. Actresses who have been frequently mentioned as possible contenders for the role include Katheryn Winnick and Emily Blunt.

We’ll keep you apprised on any developments for Captain Marvel in the MCU.
