The rumours that Ms Marvel is joining the cast of Avengers: Age Of Ultron are back courtesy of wildly off-target misinformation factory Latino Review.

The site reports that Ms Marvel is the last piece of major casting, but as usual cite no sources or give no indication that the information is anything other than pure fantasy.

What makes the news additionally unlikely is that the Carol Danvers character is now called Captain Marvel, a considerably less patronising title with a far less embarrassing costume, while the all-new Ms Marvel is a Pakistani-American teenager, so it seems unlikely they’ll fudge the branding there.

Some have pointed out the troubled copyright history surrounding the Captain Marvel name, but that’s purely a historical concern, and Marvel really are holding all the cards right now.

Obviously, we’re still hugely pro Katee Sackhoff for the role.

Avengers: Age Of Ultron is released 1 May 2015. You can buy Avengers Assemble on Blu-ray for £16.83 at Amazon.co.uk.
