RUMOR CONTROL: You Can Join the Avengers Initiative and Kevin Pennington for Quasar After All?

RUMOR CONTROL: You Can Join the Avengers Initiative and Kevin Pennington for Quasar After All?

During production for the Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D will be travelling throughout New York looking for new recruits, that means you, the press release also reveals a new cast member.

First off, for now this should be taken as 100% pure speculation until it has been officially been confirmed, but a source who works at a news station in New York city has apparently just received an e-mail press release about a chance for fans in NYC to meet the cast playing S.H.I.E.L.D agents in the upcoming Avengers film during principal photography this year.

The press release also reveals a new character that was previously not known to be in the film, Quasar, who is being played (according to this) by Kevin Pennington.

S.H.I.E.L.D. invites you to join the AVENGERS initiative

Meet the cast of S.H.I.E.L.D. and join the Avengers initiative! Marvel Studios to announce a S.H.I.E.L.D. Assembly in New York City for spring 2011. During principal filming, S.H.I.E.L.D. will be out in full force in NYC to recruit and find new members. Cast members on hand include Samuel L. Jackson (Director Nick Fury), Clark Gregg (Agent Phil Coulson), Cobie Smulders (Agent Maria Hill) and Kevin Pennington (Agent Wendell Vaughn). Fans will get the chance to meet the stars and get their photograph taken with them at the event.

Apparently there were no dates or times specified, maybe to avoid a mob of fans swarming over NYC like madmen, it does seem a bit suspicious but it wouldn't be completely unrealistic for them to do this.
And some sources are saying this was not suppose to hit the news until April.

Now with Quasar to be in the film, and Ms. Marvel, does this mean that we'll be getting set up for a Kree-Skrull appearance in the Avengers 2?

But I guess we wont know for sure until a more reliable source confirms it, so for now remember, take it with a grain of salt.
