In the recently released trailer for Age of Ultron, there was released this image:
Apparently meating together at the top of the Avengers Tower, we see most of the Avengers gathered together. We see Hawkeye, Tony Stark, Rhodey, Black Widow, Steve Rogers, Thor, Natasha Romanov, and Bruce Banner. In short, the entire Avengers, plus Rhodey. Then, there is one more woman there, just behind Thor.
She is causing a lot of speculation around the internet. Who is she?We know very little about her. She’s brunette, likes blue, and some say looks slightly Asian.
There are three dominant theories:
Her proximity to Thor makes many believe that she is none other than Jane Foster, Thor’s human love interest. She is brunette. Pepper Potts was featured in the Avengers, so if this is Jane Foster, it could mean the love interests are “taking turns” in the Avengers movies. It’s not too far gone to think that she might be Jane Foster. A solid maybe.
Okay, I don’t get this one. Some people are saying that this mystery woman is actually Carol Danvers… with dyed brown hair. I see absolutely no evidence to support this claim, other than wishful thinking. It’s a theory, however, so I have to report it.
Kim Soo Hyun
We know that parts of the movie take place in South Korea. This actress has been rumored to be in the movie in an unspecified roll. The very little context in this scene makes it hard to understand why she would be there. She is rumored to play a scientist that is helping Tony Stark, while other sources claim that she is a villain. Her roll is somewhat secret, indicating her name might provide plot details that Marvel is not ready to release yet.
Marvel spoke on her roll:
“It would be a spoiler, so we can’t tell you which character Kim Soo-hyun will play. Marvel always prohibits telling too much about the story. Her character is already decided and the scene is already written so we cast Kim Soo-hyun, but we can’t let you know about her character. We only can say that her character is a substantial supporting role.”
Truthfully, I don’t have a concrete answer. I don’t think it matters just yet. But it’s news that is going around the Marvel news world, so it’s my responsibility to bring it you.
Who do you think this is? Jane Foster or Kim Soo Hyun? Possibly another? Only time will tell.
