If there is anybody who has mastered the art of showing everything and nothing at the same time, it's Marvel. Indeed, they are already starting the promo train for next year's "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron," with first look photos and posters galore. And yet, they don't really reveal any big secrets behind the highly anticipated film. So all we can do is speculate, and Joss Whedon has given fans something to think about.

Avengers, Age of Ultron

If there is anybody who has mastered the art of showing everything and nothing at the same time, it's Marvel. Indeed, they are already starting the promo train for next year's "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron," with first look photos and posters galore. And yet, they don't really reveal any big secrets behind the highly anticipated film. So all we can do is speculate, and Joss Whedon has given fans something to think about.

On the red carpet at the U.K. premiere of "Guardians Of The Galaxy," HeyUGuys asked Marvel's guru if there would be an increase in female roles in 'Ultron.' Whedon responded that his film will feature four prominent parts for women, but of course, didn't specify, leaving many trying to decipher what he meant. Black Widow is certain, and likely Agent Maria Hill and of course, Scarlet Witch, so there's three. But what about the fourth?

Well, Whedon more or less played coy about Ms. Marvel (I don't think that'll be it), while perhaps Wasp is a possibility. Anyone else you think is in the mix? Any characters you would be pleasantly surprised to see? Let us know below.
