3 MCU Characters Almost In Avengers: Age Of Ultron (& Why They Were Cut)

The first two Phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe were all about introducing this universe’s first batch of superheroes, and the second Avengers movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron, could have been the first appearance of two of the biggest MCU heroes and the return of a popular antagonist. The first Avengers movie saw the formation of the original team and their first mission as Loki and the Chitauri army invaded New York City. For their second adventure together, Avengers: Age of Ultron, the team went on a more chaotic mission, which saw the addition of new heroes to the team.
Avengers: Age of Ultron saw the creation of the AI Ultron which unexpectedly became sentient and decided that the only way to save Earth was by eradicating humanity. Ultron recruited the Maximoff twins, who ended up allying with the Avengers and, along with Vision, were key in the defeat of Ultron. At the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, a new team known as the New Avengers was formed with Wanda Maximoff, War Machine, Falcon, Black Widow, and Captain America, and the team almost saw two more additions and the return of a beloved antagonist, but in the end, they didn’t happen for different reasons. Here are three characters who almost appeared in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Captain Marvel Avengers: Age of Ultron almost saw the debut of Captain Marvel, four years before she starred in her own movie. According to Kevin Feige, Captain Marvel was included in an early draft of Age of Ultron’s script, and director Joss Whedon went as far as to shoot visual effects plates for her to fly into Avengers Headquarters at the end of the movie, joining the New Avengers team. Those shots were ultimately reused for Scarlet Witch instead, and a deleted scene included in the Infinity Saga box gave viewers an idea of what Captain Marvel’s introduction in Age of Ultron could have been like, with Falcon arriving as in the final cut, then showing Vision, Scarlet Witch, and War Machine before cutting and panning up to reveal a blonde-haired woman, who would have been whoever they would have cast as Captain Marvel back then.
Feige revealed that Captain Marvel was left out because it didn’t feel like the time to introduce her and it would have done her a disservice, as she would have casually appeared in full costume and ready to be part of the Avengers, and it would have been confusing to the audience. Captain Marvel joined the MCU in Phase Three and was part of the Battle of Earth in Avengers: Endgame, though Marvel has had a weird way of handling her role in the MCU, which will hopefully be fixed in the sequel, The Marvels.
