Sometimes an Easter Egg is just an Egg.

The new Ms. Marvel, spoilers, is not a brown skinned Pakistani girl.

But the eggs don't always hatch . . . .

Re: Miss Marvel to appear in The Avengers: Age Of Ultron?

I'm more worried about the hole in the basket I'm putting all my eggs in.

...

A Chicken has to have sexy sausage time with her Rooster to fertilize the eggs she is carrying.

The eggs that we eat, are mostly Chicken periods.

(One of my favourite quotes "I have no respect for Americans because they have to invent words like Rooster".)

...

I always thought that Carol should promote herself to Major Marvel so that she can boss around Captain America.

...

I tried to script Alan Moore's Twilight of the Superheores for far too long... Billy Batson grew up to be General Marvel after he went crazy and conquered half of America.

It's possibly worth noting that the appearance of a "Carol Danvers" does not necessarily mean that she's going to turn into Captain/Ms. Marvel in the movie.

Billy Dee Williams did not turn into Two-Face in Batman (1989).
Carol Ferris did not turn into Star Sapphire in Green Lantern.
Dr. Connors did not turn into the Lizard in any of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man movies.

True, and then you have Terrance Howard as James Rhodes in Iron Man... then when you get to see War Machine down the road, it's not even that actor anymore.

Exactly. So they may just be casting "Carol Danvers," not necessarily Ms. Marvel.

How long was Carol snooping around Mar-Vell trying to prove that he is an underhanded dirty Red commie pinko spy for Mother Russia?

Well, nine years in real time passed between her first appearance as Carol Danvers of NASA and her becoming Ms. Marvel. Who knows how long that was in Marvel time?

Here's a good rundown on her history:

Your question reminds me of an old Golden Girls episode where the ladies are talking about the comic strip "Mary Worth" and one of them says she stopped reading the strip decades ago, asks what's been going on since. I think it was Rose who answered, "Well, it's later that same day..."

New Ms. Marvel Spoiler



I liked it when the shadow of Carol inside Rogue took over Rogue and dressed her up in the lightning bolt/slash costume, and all went well till half way through a fight with Mastermold and Carol was knocked out, throwing Rogue back into the driving seat where she says "ARRGH! WHAT THE HELL AM I WEARING!?"

Re: Miss Marvel to appear in The Avengers: Age Of Ultron?

If she was a few years younger, I'd say that Amanda Tapping could and should play Ms. Marvel (her character on Stargate SG-1 was like Carol Danvers in a lot of ways) but I know that Marvel wouldn't even consider it.

Obviously, there's a lot of talk about Captain Marvel. For the other rumored hidden character: Sometimes J'burg is just J'burg (some spoilers and speculation).

Not surprised it isn't Wakanda, that seemed like wishful thinking to me.

Could still be easter eggs pointing towards Wakanda in the scenes. Maybe a sign for "Visit Beautiful Wakanda" as a convoy goes down the road. Maybe a TV is on and a Wakandian Representative is on talking about issues on the continent?
