For those hoping to see Captain Marvel in the next Guardians of the Galaxy film, prepare yourselves for disappointment.

While participating on a panel at DragonCon this past weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn shot down any hopes of seeing Captain Marvel in the sequel, but did reveal the inclusion of other female Marvel characters.

And though Gunn was mum on which new characters would be appearing in Guardians 2 he did give out a nugget relative to Captain Marvel—indicating that Captain Marvel will likely be appearing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe prior to the Guardians sequel.

As Collider points out, all this coded talk from Gunn points to the rumors of Captain Marvel making a surprise appearance in Avengers 2: Age of Ultron
