Emily Blunt - Ms. Marvel

The Avengers 2: Gotta love rumors! The latest report about The Avengers 2 is that Emily Blunt (above) and Ruth Wilson are contending to play Ms. Marvel in the sequel. Also known as Carol Danvers, the character is “former American military,” according to our own John Gholson, “imbued with alien powers and memories through an accident involving the alien race, the Kree.” Before any casting can be confirmed, of course, Joss Whedon needs to finish the script that he’ll be directing.

It’s a romantic drama set in the Austin music scene, and reportedly stars Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman and Ryan Gosling. Michael Fassbender is the latest star to be spotted on set.
