Though it’s not often that we get the scoop on anything here, I’ve just received information from a protected source inside Marvel that points to Yvonne Strahovski being cast in the upcoming Avengers movie as Ms. Marvel.
Could it be true?
I, for one, have long hoped to see Yvonne crop up in a comic book movie. She’s got the action chops to easily pull it off and it was really just a matter of time before the right character came along. I’d say she certainly looks the part:
Ms. Marvel is one of Marvel’s older comic book characters, debuting all the way back in 1968 (though she didn’t get her superpowers until 1977). Her alter ego is Carol Danvers, an officer in the United States Air Force. Her super powers have included super strength, super agility, precognition, and flight.
Though it’s only rumor at this point, I’m really hoping to see this one come through. Getting major exposure in such a big budget flick will surely up Yvonne’s stock and we’re for anything that gets Yvonne into the hearts of America!
The Avengers is set to release in 2012 and tells the story of a group of Superheroes including Iron Man, Thor, The Hulk, and Captain America.
The Avengers is being written and directed by Joss Whedon and will star Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo and Samuel L. Jackson (among others).
