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. Correction! I’ve just read the following link:
    http://ideas.wikia.com/wiki/The_Avengers_2_(2015_film)
    I am not sure if it is an idea or a leak.
    Does anyone know?

  2. Hi

    Want to know some points.

    Is there any response from kevin Feige regarding X-men producers response on cross overs?,
    Mrs marvel rumors any confirms denies etc,for mrs marvel to be introduced the cree and Captain Marvel needs to be introduced as Mrs marvel gets her powers from him(possibe phase3?),
    And Vision any interviews with Vin Diesel everyone is talking about his facebook page but no confirmation or denies from the man himself?
    for Vision to exist it will probably after AntMan as Antman creates ultron that creates vision but Vin Diesel would be a awesome choice.

    any updates let me know thanks.

  3. I think blackpanther is a good choice for avengers 2….but ms.marvel??? I’d like to see wolverine and storm in avengers 2!!! That will be AWESOME!and I beg!…pleeeez keep the avengers in avengers 1 in avengers 2!((Excited))

  4. I judt wanna see a blackwidow movie!!!!pleeeeez??!?!?!?

  5. every movie should keep the same people and actorts as in their first movie into their sequel

  6. I want to see Spiderman team up with them!

  7. Core six avengers with same cast then add Falcon, Spider-Man, Black Panther, or Wolverine. Any or all of those heroes and maybe Fantastic Four and you’ll have a great movie.

  8. The Vision and The Black Panther would be good additions.

  9. I believe they should try to in-corporate

    Ms.Marvel- maybe played by Emily Blunt??
    Wasp- maybe played by Eva Longoria
    Vision- maybe played by a not so famous actor

    They need to keep Captian America, Thor, Iron-man and Hulk, hawkeye is already confirmed to be back and keep black widow just use her not on the main team more in like work in the base

  10. I’m happy that Jeremy Renner will continue as hawkeye… Emily blunt I don’t see as ms. Marvel… I could see actors like josh Stewart, Scott porter, Emile hirsch, or Kate beckinsale maybe

  11. I’m happy that Jeremy Renner will continue as hawkeye… Emily blunt I don’t see as ms. Marvel… I could see actors like josh Stewart, Scott porter, Emile hirsch, or Kate beckinsale maybe…

  12. How could they even think about making a movie with iron man in it and not have Robert Downey jr playing it?!?!?

  13. :/ I’m thinking that they could stick Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in there, considering they were actually Avengers. And if Marvel studios were to manage it with FOX, we would actually get into an X-Men/Avengers crossover because Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are Magneto’s twin children. While far-fetched due to the Marvel/FOX rivalry, they’d definitely be missing out on something wonderful if they were to let business get too far in the way of that.

  14. I would love to see a few more girl avengers like wasp and scarlet witch(she was in the avengers with quick silver in the early part of marvel comics) but I would love to also see wolverine, spidey, daredevil(though there is a slim chance), Nova (idk but It’d be Kewl), and I would absolutely love to see Loki back in the sequel as I love how Tom Hiddleston played him and of course dr. Strang and dr. Doom

  15. I would like to se 2 from the comics like Scarlet witch and Vision or Captian &
    Ms. Marvel

    • Captain Marvel is DC Ms. Marvel is Marvel get it right theyre in 2 different universes

      • nvm i forgot theres one in both comics.

  16. My name is Jalen Jones and during my 14 year old life I’ve never seen a black super hero so I was wondering if I could make one and I would like your help a dc character or marvel someone with fire lightning super strength and maybe when he gets angry he turns to something very powerful this might make the superman vs ? easier give me a call at 7733048138 it’s an idea we can work on

  17. The hulk iron man captain America Thor spider man black widow ant man hawk eye black panther and power man would be good in the movie and also if u make another hulk movie put red hulk in it

  18. The hulk iron man captain America Thor spider man black widow ant man hawk eye black panther and power man would be good in the movie and also if u make another hulk movie put red hulk in it pleas more black people

  19. They have to have a Black Panther movie at some point!!! He was the first mainstream black superhero. They’ve already have War Machine and going to have Falcon you mean to tell me they can’t have Black Panther? I hope they can make it happen Black Panther deserves his own movie or at least co-star in a future Marvel movie. I guess I just want this happen so bad!!! Marvel has done a great job with there movies I think Black Panther for there Phase 2 or 3 will put them over the top!!! Keep the movies coming Marvel!

  20. Thor iron man captain America wolverine Spider-Man hulk black panther ant man and black widow and HawkEye!

  21. I think Spider man and The Black panther should be in there! Iron man is my 1st Hulk 2nd Spiderman 3rd and panther dude 4th! IT would be cool to see ant man too I guess and how they would do his character,Though I really want Spider man to be in it that would be awesome!

  22. I think that wolverine should be in the avengers 2 because they are making so many x-men movies and they should take a break. the only problem is that they started making x-men prequels!!! so now i think the amazing spider-man because they just made a new spiderman movie and spider-man is in the new avengers comics. So if they were going to make an avengers 2 they should call it The new Avengers and add a whole bunch of characters from the new avengers comics, also spiderman and wolverine are part of the new avengers.

  23. I would like to see superman in the new avengers 2 and Spider-Man and batman

    • NOT happening DEFINETELY 100% batman and superman are from DC comics spiderman avengers xmen are Marvel comics.

  24. First of all the original Captain Marvel was from Faucet comics. DC comics sued Faucet comics in the 1940′s because they said that Captain Marvel was a rip-off of Superman. Which in my opinion was a cheap excuse because the real problem was that Captain Marvel was out selling Superman and Batman. DC won the case and forced Faucet comics out of business. In the process they also took control of Captain Marvel and put gin storage for some decades. In that time Marvel Comics came out with there own character named Captain Marvrel who was a Kree soldier who came to earth to conquer it. Marvel comics was allowed to use the Marvel name legaly because DC comics had not used the Captain Marvek name in years, so Marvel Comics took advantage of this situation. But later on DC comics began to use there Captain Marvel, the one they had stolen feom Faucet comics in court. Instead of calling the title of his comic book Captain Marvel they decided to use the word Shazam. Which is the word Billy Batson says when he changes to the original Captain Marvel. I have always said that DC comics have intentionaly kept C M in the background so that there weak Superman character could shine. In my opinion the character of Superman is one of the most boring heros ever created.

  25. I would love to see wolverine and Spider-Man both in the next avengers movie especially if iron man isn’t going to be playing an action role I think wolverines addittude would compensate for iron mans loss

  26. i really want to see captain america and black widow in the avengers 2.

  27. Joss has already confirmed that quick silver and scarlet witch are going to bein avengers 2. I would love it if they included Falcon and Luke cage. I really hope there’s some more girl power going on in the sequel so that black Widdow and scarlet witch aren’t by themselves. I wonder if they might include ms. Marvel but might do a movie later about how she became ms. Marvel. I hope there’s some villains other than thandos there as well. I would love for dr. Doom to come into light and such and maybe a bit of cameo for Loki. I wish deadpool could be in it but knowing the fox and marvel rivalry, most likely not.

  29. there is a big rumor that for the 2nd avengers besides the originals we might see besides quick silver and scarlet witch we might see mrs marvel, wolverine, spiderman, fantastic four, ant-man and wasp
