Fans expecting to catch a glimpse of Carol Danvers in next month’s Avengers: Age of Ultron should be prepared for disappointment. In an interview today with MTV, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirms that, even though a scene featuring Danvers was initially planned for the blockbuster sequel, it’s going to be a little while longer before we meet the MCU’s Captain Marvel.
“We didn’t want to introduce her fully-formed flying in a costume before you got to know who she was and how she came to be,” Feige explains.
Little is known regarding Marvel’s specific plans for Captain Marvel outside of the fact that the big screen film will feature the Carol Danvers version of the character.
In the Marvel Comics 616 continuity, Danvers made her first appearance in 1968’s “Marvel Super-Heroes” #13. A Security Chief in the US air force, Danvers would later be transformed into the superhero Ms. Marvel following an explosion involving Kree technology. More recently, Danvers took on the identity of Captain Marvel after being “promoted” to the moniker of the former Kree superhero.
Captain Marvel hits the big screen November 2, 2018. Will we see her somewhere else in the Marvel Cinematic Universe before then? Only time will tell, but check back for updates as they become available!
