Julie Delpy and Linda Cardellini confirmed for Avengers: Age of Ultron

04.02.2015

There's so much news that breaks on an April 1st that sometimes you have to wait for the dust to settle in order to make sense of it all. Thankfully, DEADPOOL being rated R is the real deal. Also seemingly the real deal is that two well-known actresses have made it under the radar in regards to AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. As you've undoubtedly noticed, that would be Julie Delpy and Linda Cardellini.

Delpy has made a name for herself in writing and starring in the bulk of Richard Linklater's BEFORE trilogy alongside Ethan Hawke. Linda Cardellini won the hearts of everyone during her brief stint in Freaks and Geeks, and is now playing one of the lead characters in the Netflix original series Bloodline (which was just renewed for a second season). While they have been cofirmed to be in the film, their roles remain a mystery. I want to say that their roles can't amount to too much given that they're not taking part in much screen time, but it's interesting to note that we only found out about these two a month before the film hits theaters. Regardless of how small the roles are, I'm confident they'll be pivotal ones.

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON hits May 1st.

I hate to be "that guy", but for those of us trying to go on an Avengers blackout until the premiere, I would have preferred if the thumbnail headline said something like "Guess which two actresses have just been confirmed for Avengers: Age of Ultron?" That way I could have simply avoided this info by not clicking the link, rather than having it spoiled right on the front page. #StillLoveYaJoBlo

They're probably just playing normal humans/politicians who interact with the Avengers at some point. Kind of like how Garry Shandling played a HYDRA senator in Winter Soldier, but only for a couple lines.

Linda Cardellini in Shawarma Scene part 2...

I REALLY hope the end credits scene is the team eating shawarma again, but then Linda Cardellini crashes through the roof of the building, gets up and say "Did we win?"

Linda Cardellini as Velma made me seriously reassess my childhood memories of 'Scooby Doo'.

I don't think Cardellini is Captain Marvel. Their names were included on the official PR for the premiere. Marvel is keeping her a secret, so they wouldn't just put the actress' name who is playing Captain Marvel on a document unless they're terrible at keeping a secret. But they've done well so far.

This swells the cast to 24 confirmed and notable actors, ranging from leads to cameos. Compared to the first Avengerís movie which wikipedia list 21 notable actors. The big difference is that alot of the notable actors in the first Avengers are relatively unknowns (Powers Booth, Jenny Agutter, Jerzy Skolimowski). Every actor confirmed for Age of Ultron has led a movie on their own before. Everyone is notable and has previous acting credits we can look at and remember. There doesnt seem to be

The big difference is that alot of the notable actors in the first Avengers are relatively unknowns (Powers Booth, Jenny Agutter, Jerzy Skolimowski). Every actor confirmed for Age of Ultron has led a movie on their own before. Everyone is notable and has previous acting credits we can look at and remember. There doesnt seem to be any role in this movie that is going to an cheaper unknown actor and is instead going to someone with star power. This is very interesting. There may be cameos and surprises in here that we may not notice until Guardians of the Galaxy 2 or Doctor Strange. This is also just the confirmed list, there may very well be actors in here we wont know about until the film comes out. Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Rudd, Chadwick Boseman, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sebastian Stan, and whoever they cast as Spiderman, any of them could very easily show up in cameo or in post credit

There is speculation that Delpy is playing a Red Room Scientist in a Black Widow flash back and Cardellini is playing Betty Ross (aka Bruce Banner's original love interest). I really hope Cardellini is not playing Betty Ross because it annoys me anytime they replace a actor, especially since there is nothing stopping Liv Tyler from playing the part. There is still one character in the trailer that has not been identified; the lady in the cave.

Whedon said that there are 4 prominent female characters in this film. So far we know of Black Widow, Scarlette Witch, and Maria Hill. Dr Cho (Claudia Kim) has been feature in the trailers and Hayley Atwell has already been confirmed to reprise Agent Carter. Now add Cardellini and Delpy to the mix and any of these four women could be the forth key character Whedon mentioned.

Umm... Jenny Agutter is a dame (she's been knighted) and Powers Boothe was a really prominent character actor in the 80's and 90's and had also headlined some projects. Has beens? Yes. Relative unknowns? Not even close. They were both much bigger in their heyday than Linda Cardellini was in hers.

And skolimowski is a prominent director. I said they are relatively unknowns. None of them have done an international hit movie in the last two decades and only big film buffs would know who they are. Cardellini I can just say Velma from Scooby-Doo and 90% of people would instantly know who I'm talking about.

Agree with Zedlander in that maybe Cardellini was possibly cast as Captain Marvel. There have been rumors that Marvel has already cast the role and didn't Whedon also suggest a few characters that we haven't seen yet appear in Age of Ultron??

Too many ingredients not enough stew. Mmm, stew.

I like both of these actresses immensely, especially Cardellini, but more characters in an already bloated cast? This thing better be at least 3 hours to accommodate everyone successfully.

Is this a joke or not? Why would you just now announce more cast members to a movie exactly one month away? Very confusing article.

It wasn't announced. As the link to the source article says, the 2 names were only revealed to be on a cast list for those attending the premiere for Age of Ultron. Some sharp-eyed folks saw these 2 names, asked Marvel if they were in the movie, and Marvel responded by saying the cast list wasn't incorrect. So that's the "confirmation" this article talks about.

The fact that Marvel didn't announce them as part of the cast a long time ago suggests that their roles will be important, though
