When Marvel revealed their nine-movie Phase Three slate back in October, one of the movies that was announced was Captain Marvel, which hits theaters on November 2, 2018. There have been rumors in the past that Avengers: Age of Ultron will feature a cameo from Captain Marvel, but that rumor was officially shot down over the weekend when the studio held the first press screenings, and Carol Danvers was nowhere to be seen. MTV sat down with producer Kevin Feige, who revealed that Captain Marvel was actually featured in an earlier version of the script.

"She was in an early version of the script, yes. We didn't want to introduce her as this fully-formed hero, flying in a costume, before you got to know who she was, or how she came to be."

The producer said it's still very early on in the development process, and Carol Danvers has yet to be cast, with their first objective being to find the right screenwriters.

"In terms of finding the actress, it's still very early days. It's about finding writers right now, and we're very close."

Carol Danvers made her debut in the Marvel comics in 1968's "Marvel Super-Heroes" #13. Carol Danvers is a U.S. Air Force security chief who is transformed into Captain Marvel following an explosion which involved Kree technology. Nothing is known about how this popular character will be portrayed on the big screen, but stay tuned for more updates as soon as we have them. Who do you think should play Captain Marvel?
