Rumour: Avengers: Age Of Ultron to introduce new superheroes?

Potential spoilers ahead

A new rumour has emerged this morning regarding Avengers: Age Of Ultron, and some potential shifts to the lineup that could be precipitated by the film’s ending.

According to Badass Digest, the film will conclude with Captain America assembling a new team of superheroes, comprised of a mixture of characters old and new.

Why exactly a new team would be required has yet to be explained, but one of the major new additions is thought to be Ms. Marvel, otherwise known as Captain Marvel.

The report does go on to explain that the studio is still deliberating on whether to introduce her here in such a throwaway manner, or whether to give her a proper origin story in her own film, but in any case, it looks like that female superhero isn’t too far away.

Definitely worth staying after the credits for this one, in any case. Directed by Joss Whedon and co-starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans et al, Avengers: Age Of Ultron will open in the UK on 24 April 2015.

Who are you hoping to see in the new lineup? Tell us, below!

      New team, hmm could they possibly be building towards a down sized Civil War?

      In Avengers Vol.1 #16 (May 1965), Iron Man, Thor, Giant Man and the Wasp took a leave of absence (Hulk had already left the team previously) and, with Captain America as the team leader, Hawkeye, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch completed the line-up...perhaps that's the way Whedon might be heading..?

      Knowing Whedon's work, I don't think all of our superheros will make it to the end of the film. As much as I love RDJ, I think Iron Man getting killed would be amazing in the film and start a new era for the franchise.

      Daredevil, Iron Fist & Luke Cage spring to mind,(aka the new avengers/ defenders) a post credit sting featuring these guys would be a great way to promote the up coming netflix series, which a lot of people currently don't know about. And I doubt they would kill anyone off yet, I mean I thought RDJr had signed on for Age Of Ultron & Avengers Three and Cap, Thor have movies in the works so that keeps them clean, I reckon the shake up will feature Hulk

      There have been rumours/debunks for months now over how Hulk will be 'separated' from them, almost all of them featuring a space rocket/possible Planet Hulk thing. To me they need to do more work before a Civil War story. Having something like 4 on each side seems like too much of a downscale at this point.

      well...RDJ's signed up for Avengers 3, and Renner already said he's gonna be alive by this movie's end and may even end up in Cap 3..Hulk's been rumored to be somehow shipped away into space. so that leaves Widow and Thor... Widow...in the ultimates they make her turned to a villain, which i don't think they would do so in MCU. m pretty sure she'll be around (maybe for her solo flick), but yeah..she MIGHT not stick around as an avenger by the movie's end. Thor...he might be a possible "casualty", meaning he might end up (NOT) dead, but somehow transported outside earth, a la the Red Skull, cuz one way or another he NEEDS to go back to Asgard and get Loki out of the throne. so, that leaves three empty membership spots. Wanda and Pietro may or may not join the team by the movie's end. The Vision..still a big question mark. and according to rumors, Black Panther might make an intro here. but, i think FALCON should be the one to be recruited first. we already got introduced to him in Cap 2. and yeah..BP, sure. as for Ms. or Cap Marvel...maybe just introduced her as a NON-super powered yet-Carol Danvers, but don't do her transformation story here..it's way too full as is already.

      well...with the recent rumor of Hawkeye joining the Cap 3 cast, my guess is Cap will be leading: Hawkeye, the Maximoff twins, Falcon (who should've been IN this installment), Rhodey (who might replace Tony's absence by the movie's end for some reason) and...maybe the much rumored Carol Danvers. but, i think Black Panther would be a better new member than Carol. Carol's got all this complicated origin story involving Krees, the alien race that give her her powers..while Panther, he's just an heir to the panther powers from his dad...so the latter would be much easier to be incorporated into this movie's overall story.
