Two actresses reportedly in the running for the role…
Ms. Marvel is rumored to be appearing in The Avengers 2. Take this with a grain of salt as Marvel has not confirmed anything, but The Daily Mail reports that Marvel is looking at Emily Blunt and Luther co-star Ruth Wilson for the role. Of note is the fact that Blunt was originally set to be Black Widow in Iron Man 2 before she was forced to drop out due to her involvement in Gulliver's Travels.
Ms. Marvel, real name Carol Danvers, first appeared in 1968 as a security chief at a military base where she met Captain Marvel under his human guise. A Kree device exploded and Captain Marvel saved her, causing his DNA to bond with her in the process and giving her superhuman strength, endurance, stamina, flight, physical durability and a limited sixth sense. She has been an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D as well as a member of various Avengers groups.
