‘The Avengers 2’ Eyes Emily Blunt and Ruth Wilson for Ms. Marvel

Emily Blunt may star as Ms. Marvel in The Avengers 2 We still have several years of waiting before The Avengers 2 hits theaters in 2015, and we know that the main cast members of Marvel's The Avengers will be reprising their superhero roles. Today, a new report reveals British actresses Emily Blunt and Ruth Wilson are the front runners to play Ms. Marvel in the sequel.

The character first appeared in a 1968 issue of the Marvel Super-Heroes comic book as Major Carol Daniels, a member of the U.S. Air Force. While the character originally didn't have any super powers, she was exposed to an explosion of a Kree device that turned her into a human-Kree hybrid.

This is the first we're hearing about this character's inclusion in the upcoming sequel, and the news has not been confirmed by Marvel Studios as of yet, so treat this as a rumor for now. We'll be sure to keep you posted on any new developments regarding The Avengers 2.

Emily Blunt can currently be seen in the sci-fi thriller Looper. Ruth Wilson is starring in the upcoming Anna Karenina, Saving Mr. Banks, and The Lone Ranger.

Avengers: Age of Ultron was released May 1st, 2015.

      Hell no to both of them. I love Blunt and I enjoy Wilson in "Luther", but neither of them physically or characteristically embody Carol Danvers. Get a legitimate blonde and one who actually knows the material, unknown or not.

              @moviemouse ahh well thats just who he is. Take it or leave it but trying to convince someone else that they should not be who they are is a pointless endeavor.

              the high road.

                    @moviemouse -- Says a random stranger over the internet.

                    How hurtful.

                      @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx and your not a real film critic learn to deal with that @skywise my problem isn't him expressing difference in opinion its the way he does it "I pity anyone that's going to be in this mess of a film" ???? he's so smug

                        @bawnian-dexeus Yeah, both are pretty talented ladies I must say... But I think Blunt has the edge in ability to act. Like I said, it's a real toss up for me!

                          @mcleve02 Basically, she's not hero material. Ok, I can understand that, but I'm sure much of the cast for these movies at one pont didn't "look the part" and they surprised the hell out of us. I'll keeo an open mind for Blunt, never seen anything with Ruth Wilson so I can't fully judge, and I would again throw in Ali Larter for the role, given her experience with heroine character personalities

                            @skywise Lord knows I have had some pretty colorful ones! haha It's fun to use profanity and be negative every now and then!

                              @mcleve02 Its just silly to think that people expect only positive comments on every story. Sh*t man, my negative comments are just as important! And generaly much more colorfull.

                                @skywise They do have the option to either thumbs up or thumbs down for a reason... haha But I can't really say much I get along with all the parties on here... or at least I think I do anyways!

                                  @bawnian-dexeus First off before I actually explain... *looks down and laughs* and you know why!

                                  Now if you were to sit back and picture what Ms. Marvel would look like, or even for that matter look up her pictures. That Heroin look that they give the female characters. I think that Emily Blunt just looks too sweet... while we all know she is truly badass, she doesn't look like a Heroin figure. I think that Ruth Wilson does!

                                      @moviemouse I for one appreciate @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx views although they usually differ greatly from mine. What is the point of all this if we can't have a civil discusion over differing opinions.

                                        @ROFLitschristian That would definatly work for me. And probably the only real way to do it in the world they have created.

                                          @moviemouse -- You bet =/= Reality. I'm sorry to be the one to tell you this, but there's a difference.

                                          Shocking, I know.

                                          No, I don't. Go ahead, and see for yourself. Of course I will. A critic sees EVERY movie. It's an obligation. And who knows, maybe it'll actually be good this time around?

                                          People comment on things they hate. Learn to deal with it.
