According to the Daily Mail, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will recruit another powerful vixen to the team in the form of Ms. Marvel… and Emily Blunt wants the role!
Now, if you’re unfamiliar with this particularly buxom heroine, allow me to upload some wiki guided facts to your cranium.
The blonde bombshell’s walking name is Carol Danvers, a one-time Air Force major who was gifted with super awesome Kree powers not unlike the other commissioned officer of the same surname, Mar-Vell. She’s been a member of The Avengers for a few decades, and while she’s assumed the title of “Captain” in recent months, fanboys still remembers her as that same “Ms.” who got her ass beat by the spirit sucking mutie Rogue.
If Danvers makes an appearance in THE AVENGERS 2 , I expect that Joss Whedon will tweak her origins to better fit with the established characters. If I was a gambling man, which broke-ness has sadly prevented, I’d bet that she’ll be an Agent of SHIELD before she dons the ol’ black onesie and red scarf.
Though, while the MCU is starved of strong female characters, and Ms. Marvel is a welcome addition, I really hope they don’t emphasize the sex appeal too much. She’s already a REALLY awesome character. They don’t need to seduce us with a skimpy costume and ridiculous bosoms.
After all, that’s what Black Widow’s for.
