Then again, Monica was an actual Avenger in the comics. Misty (from what I have read) was never an Avenger and yet we'll probably see Misty in the MCU instead of Monica.
I would be surprised to see Medusa and Crystal as black. That would surprise me. I don't think I would 'get' that one. I think we'll continue to see black actresses like Zoe Saldana, but I don't think we'll see a black female superheroine for a while, unless Monica becomes part of a Captain Marvel film and it does well enough for a sequel to let her get powers.

She would be far more intriguing visually and her powers would have many interesting possibilities.
I hadn't thought about the fact that she, unlike many female heroes, is not a derivative of a male hero in any way shape form or fashion. She's her own. That's pretty awesome.

I'm always concerned about that. I don't think it'll ever be that bad, but the lions share, and the arc I think will always go to RDJ, if he's around. I think we'll see less of Cap in Avengers 2, but I think we'll also see better of Cap. I don't think it'll be Tony telling him to lead, I think Cap will just start taking charge, even against Tony's desires. That should be interesting.
