Ms. Marvel to be in Avengers 2?Posted 10:42 am on Monday, October 8th, 2012 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
According to the Daily Mail, Emily Blunt (Looper) and Ruth Wilson are being considered to play Ms. Marvel in The Avengers 2. This piece of information was found as a side-story in a story about Stella McCartney having to drop the cost of her flat. So take this news with a grain of salt.
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, star of The Young Victoria, and Ruth, from TV’s Luther, are both hotly tipped to play superhero Ms Marvel in Avengers 2, the sequel to Avengers Assemble.
I welcome this news, since the Avengers film was short of female heroes. All they had was Black Widow and Maria Hill, and those two characters don’t even have super powers. The one female character I hope to be more prominent would be Wasp. She’s one of the founding members of Avengers, and it’s time she gets her due.
If the Ms. Marvel report is true, I wouldn’t have a problem with Emily Blunt as Carol Danvers. She had a great role in Looper.
