‘Captain America 2′ Cast Discuss ‘Avengers 2′ Appearances and Screen Time (Spoilers)

[WARNING: THIS VIDEO & ARTICLE CONTAIN POSSIBLE CAPTAIN AMERICA 2 SPOILERS!!!]

If there is one criticism about the Marvel Cinematic Universe right now, it’s that it could probably use a few more diversity hires. It’s not as if there isn’t precedence – Marvel has an extensive list of female, minority and even gay characters – it’s just that few of these characters are actually present onscreen in major roles, right now. For instance, if you remove Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) from The Avengers, you’re pretty much left with a country club party (i.e., white males).

But while we wait for the day when Black Widow, Ms. Marvel or Black Panther are headlining their own films, it seems that The Avengers: Age of Ultron is going to be offering bigger action at the cost of soul… brothers. From the video above, it doesn’t sound like Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie) are going to be contributing much to the fight against evil robot Ultron (James Spader).

(P.S. – In the video Chris Evans and ScarJo inadvertently confirm leaked details about the Captain America 2 post-credits scene.)

All talk of race and diversity quotas aside and just focusing on the characters themselves, this is troubling news for a couple of reasons.

  1. Samuel L. Jackson discussing a cameo in Avengers 2 – or Sebastian Stan discussing the same - could be taken as major SPOILERS for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
  2. Not having Falcon in the film is a crime because Falcon is pretty awesome in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and if you’re bringing Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye to the party, you might as well bring Falcon. I bet Hawkeye would run out of arrows before Falcon ran out of bullets and jet fuel; in any event, I’d love to see that competition take place in the midst of a battle sequence.

To be fair, Mackie simply stated that he has not received the call for Age of Ultron yet – but that’s not completely unheard of in Marvel movie-making. Kat Dennings told me that the call for her to appear in Thor: The Dark World came after she was already convinced that she wasn’t returning; it’s always at least possible that guys like Mackie and Sebastian Stan could get the call at some point in production. You never know what kind of button scenes or special cameos Marvel Studios could have planned in order to push their roster of newbie characters into Phase 3…

On the minority front, we still have War Machine (Don Cheadle) in Avengers 2 - but again, how much of him we’ll see is questionable. Fingers crossed that Black Panther movie comes sometime in Phase 3….

Regardless, the film has a great cast that includes returning actors Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Paul Bettany, Robert Downey Jr., Samuel L. Jackson and Scarlett Johansson, along with newcomers Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Thomas Kretschmann (Baron von Strucker) and James Spader as Ultron.

  1. As much as I want to agree with you all….I don’t. Falcon is what drew meto see capt 2. War Machine was one of the high points of ironman 2 and I feel like they have under used the character.

    I really hope they add a new female because I really don’t like scarlet johanson.idk why her portral of black widow urks me so.

    Id rather meet some new characters male female or straight gay black blue white.

  2. I get what a lot of people are saying and I agree about writing the movie to fit the characters and story. (I’m black) and I somewhat disagreed with Michael B Jordan getting Human Torch because (while being a great actor) it doesn’t necessarily fit the role (especially if you have an all white Susan Storm). I also agreed with MBJ in saying it;s the 21 century and a lot of people got mad saying what if Hollywood turn Black Panther white, but Black Panther being white would change the whole story line a lot more than Human Torch becoming black. But anyway I ALSO REALLLLLLLLLLLLYYYYYYYYY WANT A BLACK PANTHER MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!! but I want it to be good and well made because he is such a iconic character, he is the first black superhero in mainstream comics, and it would be like the first MARVEL black superhero in his/her own movie since Blade.I know it’s long.

  3. Of all the superhero movies from all the studios that are upcoming, Avengers #2 is the one I am most pumped for, which is saying alot, because there are alot coming, and I am pretty pumped in varying degrees for all of them! Gonna be buying alot more DVDs, I think!

  4. Okay there is a such thing as too many characters in one movie. I dont want characters just thrown on he screen just to have a character. And really this point about having diversity, this is a movie its a story not a country club…

  5. Diversity means variety. A lot of you people don’t understand the word. If Marvel makes a Werewolf movie, that is being diverse because it is something different. A gun toting raccoon = diversity, so does a talking tree. If Marvel does not produce films different types of characters there movies will become stale.

    That is why Whedon is introducing the twins in AOU, too install fresh, diverse characters.
    I think a Black Widow eastern bloc themed horror / slasher movie would be a great way to add variety to the MCU. The ‘Cat,’ Tigra is another character I think would be great in a rated R horror / slasher movie. Those examples would add diversity based on the genre of film (Horror). Some of you guys are only revealing issues within yourself when you knock diversity.

  6. Go check out Wikipedia. In the CA:TWS article, the movie plot is all there .

  7. Oh, yes, CAP :D He was…so-so. And got a glimpse of the bro-sis act too.

  8. Casting a movie just to fill quotas would be pretty dumb.

    I get that people don’t want to be racist (hopefully most of us don’t) but to try to make the point about yourself by finding fault anywhere that you see an imbalance is easy, cheap and finding racism where non exist.

    Fault finding is fine but if it is simply to make oneself look cool then not cool.

    • Whedon cast two ‘non Americans’ in AOU, to show a different point of view. It was not racist, and it was not intended to filling a quota.

      Diversity is a good thing! Marvel will keep adding new Avengers and they will most likely add ones that have different powers then the heros currently on the team. That is kind of a powers quota, but you are just going to have to deal with it. Normal people don’t want to see the same thing over, and over, and over.

  9. You read Brubaker’s comic or Wikipedia under any of the main characters you know the Bucky storyline from Cap 3 to the next 9 movies, IF what Stan says about his contract is true.

  10. I’m not that familiar with comic books so I don’t know if the’re truly are known gay superheroes amongst them but it would be cool to see one show up in a blockbuster movie and kick some ass.
