What a day! With Marvels “event” this morning, the fan boys have gone full blown crazy. Not that they shouldn’t be, because face it, the news was nothing short of stunning! Now most of them were already rumored to be in the works but it was nice to see them official.
There were plenty of new superheroes announced but the one we are talking about here is the one that caught my eye the most, Captain Marvel.
The fact that I am so interested in this movie was a surprise to me. Now I love Captain Marvel just as much as most comic fan, but she was never my favorite. Something about this strong female hero coming had me excited. Carol Danvers is nothing short of an awesome character, and well rounded at that. But just how does she fit in?
In the comics her journey starts with something that seems pretty familiar. She gets injuries due to Iron Man, who has been taken over during a fight in Cape Town… Now, if you believe like most of us, there is a huge fight in Africa in Age of Ultron. That leads to the first time we will see T’challa, during what I think will be a search for vibranium. If this is true then why would it not make sense that perhaps we are introduced to Ms. Danvers here as well? It’s not a stretch to think that at some point in this movie that Ultron takes control of Iron Mans suit, and this could lead to her injury. Looking at all the movies coming down the line, they could use her in several movies, and take their time explaining who she is. I think it is pure genius!
If they at least introduce her in Age of Ultron there is reason to believe you could see the continuation of that in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and then show her siding with Tony during the Civil War, all of this coming to a head and her joining the Avengers in the Infinity War. Between these two movies there will be time to explain even more about her in her own solo film, just two months after part 1. Maybe she will come into the end of this “war” with full power?
Is this to much of a stretch? Is this not a perfect way to introduce some of the key characters for the future, and personally I believe Captain Marvel will be a huge part of this story line. What about you? What’s your theories?
