Avengers: Age of Ultron is still about 3 months to go but rumors and speculations already spread in the internet like wildfire. And guess what, here is a new speculation that reveals the 'mysterious' character an actor/actress might be playing in the movie with facts to support it!
Claudia (Soo Hyun) Kim, a Korean actress, is up for a role in this movie that no one knows about (except for the cast and crew obviously). Last March 2014, The Walt Disney Company Korea revealed that she is a part of this big movie.
We have seen her in the trailers that Marvel released but she is just in a normal outfit. It may suggest that she is just playing a normal human in the movie but why is it that the actress herself can't even talk about it more and she just said "I am a doctor/scientist who is friends with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). But I can’t give you more information; my lips are sealed for now. It’s very secretive.”
A new rumor says that the cosmic character 'Mantis' is set to make an appearance in the movie. (Here is the link of the article: http://tinyurl.com/l72a2az). The said article says that "A while back Joss Whedon commented on the female characters in Age of Ultron, leaving fans with a mystery female character we haven’t yet got confirmation about." It also states that "we also teased a little tid-bit from our very reliable Marvel source who has been hearing a… certain name pop up over and over again on the set of Age of Ultron" and that name is 'Mantis' (according to the article).
The source of the writer of the article points out that "This would seem to make a lot of sense as she 1) has direct ties to Thanos, 2) has even stronger ties to Vision, Quicksilver, and Scarlet Witch, 3) has a personal vendetta in the comics against Klaw and, most importantly 4) has been a prominent member of both The Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy."
Well, in connection with that, we also spotted a mysterious female character in the new trailer of the movie that was released last Jan 12. Below is the set of photos from the trailer:
It can be noted that the costume she is wearing is a bit similar with the costume of the comic character Mantis!
See the similarities of the skirt?
You may say odds about this but Marvel Studios does not entirely copy the costume of a character in the comics and makes tweaks and changes to fit in the movie and their timeline so it is a possibility!
In connection with Claudia Kim, we observed in the trailer that she is always behind/near Thor.
In the set of photos above (the 1:03 scene in the trailer), we can see that the 'mysterious character' is also behind Thor and it seems that she is helping Thor (watch that part of the trailer and you will see).
We can point out also that Mantis is an Asian!
See the connections? Well, it is still a speculation until now unless we hear a confirmation from Marvel or go see the full movie.
Conclusion, Claudia Kim might be playing Mantis in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
