Has Marvel cast the MCU version of Carol Danvers?

I was reading's article about Jessica Chastain chastizing Marvel for not producing a Black Widow feature film, and something stood out. The writer says in the article:

Captain Marvel has been cast at Marvel - I promise, she has, and they've almost certainly filmed something with her for Age of Ultron too  (source)

Could this be true? If it is, it raises a ton of questions:

Won't this movie be overstuffed with characters? Yes. But Marvel could be giving us a small cameo for Col. Carol Danvers pre-Kree infusion. 
Does this mean she won't get her own film? While personally it seems like a massive diservice to fans and women to not give Carol her own film it would fit with what they have done thus far. As it stands, Jessica Jones will be the first female lead introduced in her own movie/show. Agent Carter will finally spinning Peggy off  to her own property almost 5 years after her first appearence. 
Could Marvel intend to use the post credits scene to tease a Captain Marvel film? This seems like a solid bet. Rather than shoe horn Carol in with what would likely amount to the same amount of screentime Hawkeye got in Thor, they could tease Carol's origins in the stinger. Can you imagine how wild the fans would go if the title card 'Captain Marvel 2017' on the screen?
And the most pressing questions fans will be asking: Who have they cast? One of the most important roles in the MCU and one that has the widest selection of actresses speculated and fan cast. The only real criteria seems to be a hot white woman. 

So what do y'all think? Could we be seeing Carol Danvers in The Avengers: Age of Ultron?

UPDATE: I asked the writer of the original article and he said: 

That's not new news. It's not anything anybody at Marvel has confirmed or talked about, but it's an open secret. Just wish I knew who had the role.

So I supose there isn't a source and that this is the speculation of the original writer? Or does anyone agree that this is an 'open secret' as it were?

the source is linked in the article and is listed as Source at the bottom?

It's in there, just read the whole article.

I added a second link in the body and titled it [source] so it would be clear. Also updated with the comment from the article's author where he claims this is some sort of 'open secret'. I had heard rumors but definitely was under the impression it was speculation and not something widely accepted as fact?

I personally don't want to see Captain Marvel. I would prefer to see Miss Marvel then in the later sequels bring in CM.

A Black Widow film shouldn't be one of Marvel Studios priority IMO. A Ms Marvel/Captain Marvel film would serve Marvel Studios better, as it would give us a better look at the Kree and what their culture is like.

homo...great stuff, but it's difficult to read center aligned text...that's mostly used for invitations only ;)

I've been saying Marvel get the ViQueen and real-life bad-ass Katheryn Winnick...

I found something that make me thing that i know who can be Carol Danvers in the MCU.

I was looking to the cast of Avengers Age of Ultron on IMDB when i saw one role after the main cast who is supposed to play a role only named "marine" so i look at her profile just to find that she could be a perfect Carol Danvers

@ Gliderman

No need for what? Ms. Marvel/Cpt Marvel?

Sure there is. She's a fan favorite character and it would add a powerful female to the MCU. There is plenty of reason to put her in.

@ Moon Knight

Before a movie gets released, IMDB is useless.

Blunt is one of the few can cast actresses for Ms Marvel who could actually carry her own film.
She would be amazing.

Sounds interesting but i'd be cool with it. Awesome article.

Hopefully Marvel Studios will do a Captain Marvel solo film soon.

Thumbs up.
