Director Joss Whedon spilled the beans about the leading ladies in the upcoming Marvel movie “Avengers: Age of Ultron”. We know for sure that Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Maria Hill (Colbie Smulders) are confirmed for “Age of Ultron,” but what is Whedon hiding from us? Hopefully the internet will not spoil the surprise, but do expect some wild speculations and rumors to bombard us with the options for the fourth leading lady! Will we finally see Carol Danvers a.k.a. Miss Marvel in action as previously rumoured? We will continuing dreaming in the meantime<sigh!>.According to rumors making the rounds earlier this year “we will see an iteration of Captain Marvel onscreen by 2016 – either at the end of Phase Two or the beginning of Phase Three.”
