Kevin Feige Talks New Characters in ‘Avengers 2′

Avengers 2 Characters Kevin Feige Talks New Characters in Avengers 2

During the Avengers panel at New York Comic-Con this past weekend, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige had to field several questions about a topic that fans are already buzzing about: Where does the Marvel Movie Universe go next, once The Avengers is finished its run in theaters?

In addition to what Feige said during the panel about possible Marvel Cosmic projects like Guardians of the Galaxy, he also dropped word that Avengers 2 will likely feature a different team roster than the first film.

IGN was able to get the scoop when they asked Feige direct if we would be seeing some different Avengers in the next film – to which Feige responded:

“Absolutely. That’s the fun of it — introducing new characters. Seeing: ‘How will things change after Iron Man goes through his next adventure? After Thor goes through his next adventure? If we do another Cap adventure, how will things change? The dynamic between them? Their own worlds? So that the dynamic in Avengers 2 is actually quite different than it is in the first one.”

Now, on the surface, this is a no-brainer: Marvel has signed a lot of the actors in The Avengers to multi-film contracts, yes. On the other hand, there are actors in the cast  (like Robert Downey Jr.) who will have been working on Marvel projects for over half a decade by the time Avengers 2 even begins pre-production; Downey could (and will likely) want to move on to other things.

Equally real is the fact that A) the general movie going public could be ready for some new blood in Avengers 2 (Black Panther, Hank Pym, Wasp), and B) Marvel is probably going to be expanding their universe anyway, trying to introduce characters like Dr. Strange and/or Ant-Man.

Will Cap be back? Will Panther Assemble for duty?

Then there’s C) the fact that the introduction of new characters and new stories for established characters (in sequels like Iron Man 3, Thor 2 and Captain America 2), will change the entire circumstances of Marvel’s movie world. In that sense, the Avengers sequel could, say, have Tony Stark as an administrator for S.H.I.E.L.D., or some metahuman liaison to the government, rather than playing an active role in the team  (cue brief RDJ cameo and War Machine replacement).

The only question is: which Avengers would assemble for the sequel, and which ones would be missing from active duty?

Which knew Avengers would YOU like to see in the sequel?

The Avengers will be in theaters on May 4, 2012.

The Avengers 2 doesn’t have a solid release date yet, but we do know Marvel is currently planning to have another major film event in 2017.

  1. The Black Panther, Wolverine, Storm, The Fantastic Four would all work well along side the current Avengers Team. However their is one name that I would love to see back & would work well with almost all the other heroes already listed… The Silver Surfer… He is by far the most powerful in the Marvel world & he is fond of our little planet after his last visit & meeting with the Fantastic Four!

    Just picture the Silver Surfer flying along side the Human Torch & Iron-Man.

    Hulk, Wolverine & the Thing enjoying a major clobbering time together.

    Mr Fantastic, Blank Panther & Captain America watching each others back.

    Black Widow & the Invisible Woman working side by side.

    Storm & Thor working up a storm!

    The added amazing mind of Mr Fantastic with Tony Stark & Bruce Banner doing the science bit.

    That would cover a few more Marvel films I think!

  2. Captain America, Hulk, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, and Hawkeye. Definetly Hawkeye :)

  3. Captain America, Hulk, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, and Hawkeye. Definetly Hawkeye xD

    • well duh all the last superhero’s are going t be in it why would’t they

  4. Captain America, Hulk, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, and Hawk eye. Definitely Hawk eye xD

  5. I would really really love to see She Hulk in the avengers 2

  6. I think that they should keep the character the same but lokie shouldn’t be in there. but I don’t know about iron Man cause I watched iron man three and tony got rid of all of his suits and it dosent seem like he wants to be iron man or if he will make more one more suit for the next avengers but that’s just what I thought tell me what u think

  7. I wish to see iron man in avengers 2

  8. in avengers 2 i think iron man will be in it because if u watch iron man 3 the little kid tells him that he should build a stealth suit so it could be possible that, that will be his new suit in avengers 2

  9. but i think the bad guy in avengers 2 is gonna be the red guy from captin america

  10. Dr. Strange Spiderman and the originals
