Captain Marvel!

First off: no spoilers!

Or at least not until I’ve seen the movie, which will be tonight. If you didn’t assume I’d be seeing #CaptainMarvel on opening night, you don’t know me very well.

Characters I’d love to see have cameos in CM, but are probably (almost definitely) not there:

  • Clint Barton (Hawkeye) - because the world needs more Jeremy Renner in everything. And because (I think) it’s right about the time he would have been joining SHIELD.
  • Peggy Carter - because the world needs more Hayley Atwell in everything. And because she would have been Director of SHIELD at that point in time, right?
  • Melinda May - would have been a newish SHIELD agent then too, I believe.
  • Bucky Barnes (Winter Soldier) - why not?
  • Tony Stark (Iron Man) - he’s already been digitally de-aged once (in IW); they can do it again. Maybe a post-credits scene?
  • James Rhodes (Rhodey) - it’s canon he would be in the Air Force at this point, so it’s almost a question why he wouldn’t be in CM.
  • Hank Pym (Ant Man) - another why not? But mostly because I’d love to seeā€¦
  • Janet van Dyne (Wasp) - the original kickass Avengers super-heroine.
  • Who am I missing?

I just threw on some random clothes when I got dressed today, but somehow (unless I change in the next hour), it appears that I’ll be going to the theater cosplaying as Bucky Barnes.
