As with every Marvel movie, there are always countless rumors that surface before it hits theaters, and Avengers: Age of Ultron is no different. There had previously been rumors that Captain Marvel would show up in the movie, but she is nowhere to be found, although it was confirmed that she is in an earlier draft of the script. Director Joss Whedon was recently a guest on the Empire Podcast, where he reveals that he specifically asked Marvel if they could bring in both Spider-Man and Captain Marvel.
"I said, 'It would be great, if we could add a few more.' If you guys could make a deal for Captain Marvel. They talked about it. And Spider-Man, we could do that too, because Sony had approached us during the first one, about a little integration. So I would have put both of [those characters] in, but neither of the deals were made. And then they were like, 'We're making a Captain Marvel movie and we've got Spider-Man as a property,' and I'm like, 'I've already locked my film you f---ers! Thanks for nothing."
The new Spider-Man has not been cast yet, but fans will get their first look at the rebooted character in action in a Marvel film, which has been all but confirmed to be next year's Captain America: Civil War, before a stand alone Spider-Man movie hits theaters in July 2017. Captain Marvel has not been cast yet either, but that movie is currently slated for a November 2018 release. Would you have liked to see both of these characters in Avengers: Age of Ultron?
