Additional ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Casting Details Emerge: Linda Cardelini & Julie Deply Join Cast On The Red Carpet
Marvel and Disney slipped a couple of surprises into their Avengers: Age of Ultron premiere tip sheet for the press. That’s basically the announcement to the press about which celebrities will be available at the movie’s premiere, walking the red carpet and talking with press. Down the list of attending celebrities were two names included in the section that deals with those actually in the film that included two new names: Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks), and Julie Delpy (Before Midnight). That means they are IN the movie, what roles might they be playing?
While we’re fairly certain that these two won’t have any significant screen time in A:AOE, they are most likely setting up characters for future Marvel movies.
Linda Cardellini, pictured above is a fan favorite from Freaks and Geeks, some commenters on other sites have speculated that she might be playing the woman behind Thor in the waterfall scene.
It could be her, but I kinda doubt it. I imagine there is a much meatier role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for her.
Julie Delpy on the other hand is just what the doctor ordered to fit in as Black Widow’s instructor at the Russian Super Spy School. I would have liked an makeup aged Bridget Regan from Agent Carter, but Delpy also fits that look. You might also see some folks around the Internet thinking that Delpy also looks like Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel, but I think Marvel will go with a younger, fitter actress. I know that sounds horrible, but I just can’t see her taking the lead on the Captain Marvel movie.
What do you think? Are there other Marvel characters that the two might be better for?
