Danger, Will Robinson! This may be a real Avengers: Age of Ultron spoiler, so if you don’t want even the hint of the character who may be doing a cameo, please back out of this post right now. If, like me, you thrive on rumors whether they pan out or not, by all means hang around.
According to Badass Digest (reporting this as a Spoiler), a certain long-awaited female superhero will have an Age of Ultron cameo:
“I have information about multiple drafts of Avengers: Age of Ultron, and all feature a cameo by a character the script calls Ms. Marvel (nothing else, including civilian name or basic look, is specified). It’s a cameo, so it could change at any time, but the character is planned for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is a fact.”
The purported spoiler is part of the author’s lamentation that Marvel’s Kevin Feige isn’t announcing a Ms. Marvel (or any female led) film — “Is Feige really waiting to announce a Captain/Ms. Marvel movie until this cameo is seen? I honestly don’t get it - it’s a sort of Mystery Box thing that feels unlike Marvel in general.”
Regardless of how they announce, I’ll be happy to hear the word. It does seem impossible for Marvel to completely ignore the public desire for female-led films, and whether they finally get that ball rolling with a cameo or skywriting makes no difference to me; just do it. And hey, maybe Katee was lying!
