Marvel is rumored to originally plan to have a certain female superhero make a small appearance in the movie, but now the studio is allegedly rethinking how to introduce her properly.

Some interesting tidbits on the upcoming "" have been revealed. At the end of the movie, according to Badass Digest, Captain America "will assemble a team that is a mix of familiar and new faces, leading forward into Phase Three."

The possible new characters are not all named since "some have changed in between drafts ... but one character who has always been in this new team is Captain Marvel." The heroine also known as Ms. Marvel was originally set to make a cameo in "" sequel.

"But now I'm hearing that Marvel has cold feet about including her in the film," the site reports. "Not because they're against the character - my sources assure me she is coming and it's very plausible she could be on the team in 'Avengers 3' - but because they're not certain they want to introduce her in this way. They basically aren't certain they want to just drop her into the MCU fully formed in a team movie."

The studio apparently is no longer too fond of doing origin stories like they did in the first "" and "", but they are not completely okay with the idea of simply dropping a fully-formed character into the Universe either.

There's enough time passed between the end of the action in Age of Ultron and that final scene for Carol Danvers (Ms. Marvel) to get powers, a costume and have a career as a hero, but the powers-that-be aren't sure how this will play on film."

The site also notes, "This new version of The Avengers isn't involved in an action sequence or anything. So changing the characters can be done up until the last minute without hurting the story itself."

"Age of Ultron" is due May 1, 2015 Stateside. is back as Iron Man, as Thor, as Captain America, as Black Widow, as Hawkeye, and as Hulk. and are added as Quick Silver and his twin sister Scarlet Witch respectively.
