Scarlet Witch will definitely play a major part in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. And while we know she and brother Quicksilver will start out on Ultron’s side, chances are they’ll eventually join the Avengers.
Well, in fact, if Quicksilver dies, as rumormongers seems to speculate, Scarlet Witch will be the one mutant sibling to finally become an Avenger, despite her start as an ally of the villain.
What are the chances of that to happen? Badass Digest sat with Kevin Feige and here’s what Marvel President had to say in respect to both this issue and to other interesting facts about Age of Ultron, Captain Marvel and – as we like to believe – Civil War.
Captain Marvel and her cameo in Age of Ultron
Captain Marvel should make her solo debut in the summer of 2018. But a previous cameo was – and still is, for that matter – heavily rumored.
They could easily work out Captain Marvel in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or in any of the Marvel flicks to be released until 2018. Though, indeed, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is off the table, as James Gunn confirms.
But, indeed, whoever thought Captain Marvel should have appeared in Age of Ultron was not wrong. ‘Cause here’s what Kevin Feige confessed to Badass Digest.
“There were drafts that maybe people somehow got their hands on and read early on that included some characters – maybe others, but certainly one, which is why it’s dangerous to read scripts early on, and talk about them early on…”
And adds: “[Captain Marvel] was in a draft. But to me, it would have done that character a disservice, to meet her fully formed, in a costume and part of the Avengers already when 99% of the audience would go, ‘Who is that?’ It’s just not the way we’ve done it before.”
And a bit of a comparison to help you understand why Carol Danvers is better off without a cameo in Age of Ultron:
