The Avengers movie is slowly coming together and we're hearing more about some scripting getting out there a bit and casting moving along. We've got our Thor. We've got our Captain America. We've got our Iron Man and we've got our Hulk. And oh boy do we have our Nick Fury. And we're closing in on a Maria Hill as well, which helps in the tiniest of ways to balance out the manliness of the film. But could the Avengers use a little more character of the female persuasion? With The Wasp largely being discounted from appearing since she should get her start in the Ant Man movie, word out of a few places, such as Comic Book Movie via Hey You Guys, they seem pretty confident that the surprise inclusion could be Ms. Marvel and one Yvonne Strahovski from Chuck could be tapped for the role:

Though it’s not often that we get the scoop on anything here, I’ve just received information from a protected source inside Marvel that points to Yvonne Strahovski being cast in the upcoming Avengers movie as Ms. Marvel.

Could it be true?

I, for one, have long hoped to see Yvonne crop up in a comic book movie. She’s got the action chops to easily pull it off and it was really just a matter of time before the right character came along.

Would she be a welcome presence? And as our submitter asked, do you think she's more X-men or more Avengers as a character?

Thanks to jfdavis for the submission.
