15 Avengers We Want to See in ‘Avengers 2′ & Beyond

Published 3 years ago by , Updated August 5th, 2014 at 9:33 am, This is a list post.

15 Characters for Avengers 2 Movie SequelsNow that The Avengers has officially destroyed (nearly) all the box office records that have ever existed, it’s time to look forward to the future of the franchise and the inevitable Avengers 2which could hit theaters as early as 2015.Aside from burning questions like "Will Joss Whedon return in the role of writer/director" or "is [insert spoiler] really, truly dead," we here at Screen Rant are most interested in which superhero characters – other than the six we're already cinematically familiar with – might show up in the sequels.As such, we've crafted a wish-list of sorts, with breakdowns of the 15 Marvel superheroes we wouldn't mind seeing in Avengers 2, 3, 4, 5, and so on (with stats, bios, and summaries as to why we'd want them on the team).

Ant-Man/Giant-Man/Goliath/Yellowjacket/The Wasp/Scientist Supreme

Henry Pym Ant-ManReal Name: Henry PymSpecies: Human (Mutate)Country of Origin: U.S.A.Joined the team in: Avengers #1Powers/Abilities: Shrinking/growing (as a result of Pym Particles), bio-energy projection, and being really smart in a lot of different scientific fields.Who/What Is He: Henry Pym is a brilliant scientist who – with the help of his “Pym Particles” – can shrink or grow to extremely small or large sizes, respectively. He’s known primarily for his domestic abuse escapades, having the most superhero aliases ever, and accidentally creating one of the Avengers’ greatest villains: Ultron.Why We Want Him: Besides the fact that he’s an awesomely ridiculous throwback to science-fiction tropes of the 1950s? Edgar Wright is gearing up to make a movie about him – and frankly, that’s reason enough. Whatever version of the character Wright comes up with will, no doubt, supply an excellent opportunity for more Avengers humor and science-y banter between Pym, Stark, and Banner. Now if only we could get Mr. Fantastic in there...


Janet Van Dyne WaspReal Name: Janet Van DyneSpecies: Human (Mutate)Country of Origin: U.S.A.Joined the Team in: Avengers #1Powers/Abilities: She can shrink down, grow wings for flying, and “sting” people with her little energy blasts (tee hee).Who/What Is She: Once just a shallow flight attendant, Janet Van Dyne became the superhero Wasp, thanks to Henry Pym’s “Pym particles” and a biochemical procedure that granted her the ability to grow wings and blast energy “stings” once miniature. She initially used her powers to fight and banish the monster who killed her father, then fought alongside Ant-Man as his girlfriend and, eventually, wife. (And much later, ex-wife.)Why We Want Her: She provides the Avengers with some much-needed assistance in the female quota department (five guys + one girl = superhero sausage fest). She’s also a potentially interesting character in the right hands – like Whedon’s Buffy Summers, Janet at first appears to be very “girly” and “shallow,” but goes on to display great courage, depth, and strength later on.

Black Panther

Tchalla Black PantherReal Name: T’ChallaSpecies: HumanCountry of Origin: WakandaJoined the team in: Avengers #52Powers/Abilities: Genius intellect, master of strategy, skilled fighter/hunter/tracker/gymnast, enhanced senses and physicality by way of the special “heart-shaped herb,” vibranium uniform and equipment, and retractable anti-metal clawsWho/What Is He: Black Panther is the King of the  super-advanced African country Wakanda – which controls the largest amount of vibranium on the planet (the extraterrestrial metal that was used, in part, to craft Cap’s shield) – and a generational superhero a la The Phantom.Why We Want Him: Because he’s awesome? Is that not reason enough? Well, okay, then there’s also the fact that he’s a master strategist on the genius level of, say, Batman and Captain America, and one of the most skilled warriors in the world. Plus, the Avengers could use a member or two (or three) who aren’t strictly Caucasian.


Marvel The VisionAlias: Victor ShadeSpecies: AndroidCountry of Origin: U.S.A.Joined the Team In: Avengers #58Powers/Abilities:Invulnerability/intangibility, weightlessness/extraordinary heaviness, flight, solar energy projection, IT interfacing, super-strength/intelligence/reflexes/senses inherent to an artificial being, and self-repair/regeneration.Who/What Is He: He’s a sentient robot with a heart of gold and basically the Martian Manhunter/Red Tornado of the Avengers.Why We Want Him: As a robot, Vision fills a role that has thus far gone unfilled on a team full of mutates (Cap and Hulk), extremely skilled human beings (Iron Man, Black Widow, and Hawkeye), and a super-alien/demi-god (Thor). Plus, Joss Whedon is a huge fan of robots and characters that are robot-esque – Winona Ryder in Alien Resurrection, the Buffy-Bot, Danger from Astonishing X-Men, and Echo from Dollhouse. Imagine the hilarious things he could do with Vision!Of course, Vision can’t really reach his full potential without the evil sentient robot known as Ultron – created by Henry Pym – to give him life, but perhaps we’ll see that infamous Avengers villain sometime during the sequel’s end credits.

Dr. Strange

Doctor StrangeReal Name: Dr. Stephen StrangeSpecies: Human (Sorcerer)Country of Origin: U.S.A.Joined the team in: New Avengers #27Powers/Abilities: Master of magic, once-skilled surgeon, martial artist, genius intellect, longevity.Who/What Is He: He was once a brilliant neurosurgeon with a god complex, but after a car accident damaged the nerves in his hands and ended his career, he sought a cure in Tibet and sort of accidentally became the Sorcerer Supreme.Why We Want Him: As the Sorcerer Supreme, he’s one of the most powerful “superheroes” in the whole of the Marvel Universe. Like the Vision before him, Dr. Strange fills a role that no other Avenger (or prospective Avenger) can fill, i.e. he’s a freaking sorcerer. Furthermore, he opens up a whole new world of terrifying and yet-untapped villains that the Avengers can’t just punch away (see: the alien army in The Avengers).Then again, you could also argue that Strange is too powerful for the team. How many times has the guy snapped his fingers to send away some abominable force? Well, in the literal sense, probably zero times, but figuratively, too many to count. Of course, with the right creator at the helm – and hasn’t Whedon proved himself in that regard, especially with supernatural characters of Strange’s ilk? – he could do far more creative good than evil.


Namor Sub-MarinerSpecies: Half-human, half-Atlantean, all mutantJoined the Team In: Avengers #262Powers/Abilities: Aquatic adaptation, super-strength/speed/agility/durability, flight, and longevity.Who/What Is He: Namor's the half-human, half-Atlantean Prince of Atlantis, and technically the first “mutant” to appear in the Marvel universe (not in-continuity, a la Apocalypse or Wolverine, but in the real world of comic book publishing).He’s known for a great many things, but modesty isn’t one of them. He’s vain, arrogant to the extreme – in the way that you would expect royalty to be – quick to anger and violence, and he has these little wings on his feet that allow him to fly. Somehow. (Flight, along with increased super-strength and durability, are his mutant powers.) He doesn’t trust most land-dwellers but can be extremely loyal – to Captain America, for example, whom he fought alongside during World War II as a member of the Invaders.Why We Want Him: He’s half-Atlantean! And a mutant! And these are things that none of the Avengers have going for them already! Also, who doesn’t want to see the quick-tempered Sub-Mariner cause trouble intermingling with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes? Just imagine the perfect storm of arrogance that could be developed between Iron Man, Thor, and Namor, and the resulting butting of heads, both figuratively and literally. This sequel practically writes itself!(FYI: Though Universal once had the movie rights to Namor: The Sub-Mariner, it was indicated in a 2010 interview with Kevin Feige that that was no longer the case.)

Luke Cage/Power Man

Luke Cage Power ManReal Name: Carl LucasSpecies: Human (Mutate)Country of Origin: USAJoined the Team In: New Avengers #1Powers/Abilities: Bulletproof skin, superhuman strength/stamina/durability, accelerated healing factor, and skilled fighter.Who/What Is He: Luke Cage is, amongst other things, a street-level super-badass, a private detective, and a family man. As a character born in the blaxploitation era of the 1970s, his original incarnation was a bit ridiculous and somewhat stereotypical. (Basically, he was an over-the-top version of Shaft, but with super powers.)Indeed, one of the best things Brian Michael Bendis did during his run on New Avengers was bring Cage to the forefront of the Marvel Universe as a believable human being and viable A-lister (or at the very least, a really popular B-lister). He also made Cage a family man – one of the few in the Marvel universe – with a wife, Jessica Jones, and an infant daughter, Danielle.Why We Want Him: The Avengers could use Cage’s family man background, considering every other member on the team has, at most, a girlfriend. I mean, sure, it sucks when your girlfriend’s life is at stake, but it sucks tenfold when your wife and baby daughter’s LIVES are at stake. Plus, his badass attitude, street smarts, and penchant for distrusting authority could be great additions to the group dynamic.

Iron Fist

Danny Rand Iron FistReal Name: Daniel “Danny” Rand-K’aiSpecies: HumanCountry of Origin: U.S.A., though he has dual-citizenship in the U.S. and K’un LunJoined the Team In: New Avengers #27Powers/Abillities: “The Iron Fist” (a concentration of chi in his fists that allows him to tap into the super-human energy known as Shou-Lao), healing ability, master martial artist.Who/What Is He: Iron Fist is one of the great martial artists of the Marvel Universe and has the mystical ability to harness his chi and transform his fists into deadly, superhuman weapons.Why We Want Him: While you can have Luke Cage without Iron Fist, it’s not recommended -- they’re like a 1980s buddy cop duo, having worked together for years as the “Heroes for Hire” (a misnomer, seeing as they rarely got paid). While the Avengers already has several skilled fighters -- Cap, Widow, and Hawkeye -- none matches Iron Fist in terms of sheer martial arts excellence. And like Dr. Strange, he brings a bit of supernatural mysticism to a superhero team predisposed toward science-fiction tropes.Also, his costume? The perfect example of simple and awesome.

Captain Marvel

Mar-Vell Captain MarvelReal Name: Mar-VellSpecies: KreePlanet of Origin: Kree-LarJoined the Team In: Avengers #89Powers/Abilities: Super-strength/speed, flight, cosmic awareness, solar energy absorption/projection, wields Nega-Bands.Who/What Is He: Captain Marvel (or Mar-Vell) was, at one point in time, the cosmic hero of the Marvel Universe. Hence his name: Marvel. As a soldier of the Kree empire, he was initially sent to Earth to spy on its people and evaluate the planet’s threat-level, but he eventually came to be a protector of both the people and planet – before dying, rather humanly, of cancer.Why We Want Him: He has an interesting story steeped in alien infiltration – which could be beneficial down the line depending on the plots of the next few Avengers films – he has a cool name and costume, and his powers are pretty great. Simple as that.On the other hand, Thor – while vaguely rooted in Norse mythology – also has super strength, long blond hair, and can fly without rocket boosters, so does the team really need two space aliens that function in essentially the same regard?

Ms. Marvel

Carol Danvers Ms MarvelReal Name: Carol DanversSpecies: Human (Mutate)Country of Origin: U.S.A.Joined the Team In: Avengers #183Powers/Abilities: Super-strength/speed, flight, cosmic awareness, solar energy absorption/projection.Who/What Is She: Carol Danvers debuted in comics as an officer in the US Air Force on a restricted military base, where she met Captain Marvel under his human alias, “Dr. Watson Lawson,” and was caught in an explosion of a Kree device. The explosion melded her genetic structure with Captain Marvel’s, thus giving her all the abilities of a Kree.Why We Want Her: Besides the fact that she’s a tough-as-nails, badass lady in the military, she provides the Avengers with a bit more diversity than, say, Mar-Vell, her male counterpart.Additionally, in the Marvel Universe, she’s one of the most recognizable female characters, partly because her name is synonymous with the company. At the moment, she’s going through a bit of a comic book redesign as Marvel attempts to make her character more popular and integral – might they be preparing her for a movie debut in the not-too-distant future?


Richard Rider is NovaReal name: Richard RiderSpecies: HumanCountry of Origin: U.S.A.Joined the Team In: Secret Avengers #1Powers/Abilities: Flight and super-strength/durability/speed; once he’s in possession of the Worldmind, he’s granted: energy projection/absorption and the ability to exert control over gravity and open wormholes.Who/What Is He: As a teenage human member of the Nova Corps, he’s sort of like a cross between Alex Rogan from The Last Starfighter and Green Lantern.Why We Want Him: Nova’s role on the team would be twofold – he could be a wisecracking, inexperienced teenage superhero, a la Spider-Man, and a cosmic force to be reckoned with. What, pray tell, would a teenager do with all that power?Obligatory scenes would include Nova being shown the superheroing ropes by his superhero elders, e.g. Iron Man, Captain America, and so forth, followed by a sacrificial act of bravery on Nova’s part inspired by those aforementioned elders. He’s a nice substitute, in that way, for someone like Spider-Man, whose movie rights are currently… shall we say, out of reach?

Adam Warlock

Adam Warlock Guardians of the GalaxyOriginally Known As: HimSpecies: Artificially-created humanPlace of Origin: The Beehive, Shard Island, Atlantic OceanJoined the Team In: NeverPowers/Abilities: Super-strength/stamina/agility/endurance, flight, energy manipulation.Who/What Is He: He’s an artificially-created human with strange cosmic powers.Why We Want Him: While Warlock has never actually been a member of the Avengers, his history is pretty closely tied to the The Mad Titan, A.K.A. Thanos, A.K.A. that wrinkly-chinned guy who was pulling Loki’s strings in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers (before appearing during the end credits). In fact, if Thanos' Infinity Gauntlet is involved - the gnarly-looking glove that briefly cameoed in Thor - you can pretty much guarantee that Adam Warlock won't be far behind.Frankly, I wasn't a huge Warlock fan until the Annihilation crossover and the excellent Guardians of the Galaxy series that followed, a property that Kevin Feige has spoken about as a potential movie franchise. But perhaps an appearance in Avengers 2 could pave the way for said franchise?

War Machine

James Rhodes is War MachineReal Name: James “Rhodey” RhodesSpecies: HumanCountry of Origin: U.S.AJoined the Team In: West Coast Avengers #1 (as Iron Man)Powers/Abilities: Marine, pilot, aviation engineer, trained in armed and unarmed combat.Who/What Is He: James Rhodes (played by Terence Howard and Don Cheadle in Iron Man and Iron Man 2, respectively) is the military right-hand man of Tony Stark, A.K.A. Iron Man, and wields his own, heavily-armed suit of exoskeleton armor - as War Machine.Why We Want Him: James has a long history of keeping Tony Stark in line. He even took over for the goateed alcoholic bachelor as Iron Man on more than one occasion, usually as a result of the aforementioned alcoholism. As War Machine, he utilizes armor far more deadly and powerful -- in terms of weaponry, anyway -- than the various Iron suits, hence the name “War” Machine.

Bucky/Winter Soldier/Captain America II

Bucky Barnes Winter SoldierReal Name: James Buchanan “Bucky” BarnesSpecies: Human (Cyborg)Country of Origin: U.S.A.Joined the Team In: New Avengers #48Who/What Is He: Oh, you know who Bucky is! He’s Captain America’s sidekick -- that guy who played Carter Baizen in Gossip Girl and then sort of randomly fell off a cliff and “died” (wink, wink) near the end of Captain America: The First Avenger.Everybody knows he’s coming back as the brainwashed Soviet cyborg assassin, Winter Soldier, for Captain America 2; heck, director Joe Johnston already implied as much himself. Might he be un-brainwashed by the end of Cap 2, and thus all-set to join the Avengers Initiative come Avengers 2?Why We Want Him: Bucky Barnes is one of the few comic book characters to die and then be resurrected successfully (well, not the second time, in the awful crossover Fear Itself, which was just a fake-out for the purposes of artificial drama). As Winter Soldier, he’s a darker character than Steve Rogers, having lived a messed-up life as a brainwashed assassin before being reminded of his former self. And though it’s very unlikely Cap will ever die in these Marvel movies, Bucky was incredibly well-received as the grittier, pistol-wielding Captain America II.

Wonder Man

Wonder Man AvengersReal Name: Simon WilliamsSpecies: HumanCountry of Origin: U.S.A.Joined the Team In: Avengers #160Powers/Abilities: Ionic-energy empowered, flight, longevity, and super-strength/speed/stamina/agility/reflexes/durability.Who/What Is He: Simon Williams was sent to prison - by Tony Stark, as it happens - for embezzlement, and thus held a grudge against Iron Man and the Avengers. With the help of the dastardly Baron Zemo (one of Captain America’s oldest arch-rivals), Simon was released from prison to undergo an experiment that gave him super-powers. Additionally, he was given a fake superhero identity - that of Wonder Man - and tasked by Zemo with befriending the Avengers to lure them into a trap. Thankfully, at the very last second, he repented and sacrificed himself to save the team.Years later, it turned out the guy was just in a strange coma as a result of the experiment (what a twist!) and, after waking, Wonder Man officially joined the Avengers as a superhero.Why We Want Him: I’m not fully convinced that we do. Truthfully, he’s most likable as a character you can’t really stand - his costume is terrible, his powers are generic, he’s sort of a womanizer, and besides being a villain, the most interesting thing about him was his failed attempt at an acting career. All of that could be fairly interesting in a movie, if done right, but it could also go horrifically wrong.

Honorable Mentions

All of the Avengers
  • Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver are the mutant twin children of Magneto, the X-Men’s most respected villain. Previously villains themselves, they joined the Avengers in issue #16 along with another ex-villain, Hawkeye. There’s much they could contribute to the cinematic version of the team in terms of powers, visuals, diversity, and so forth, but divorced from Magneto, are they really all that interesting?
  • She-Hulk is, as the name suggests, a sort of female version of the Hulk. Jennifer Walters gained her ability to “hulk out” when her cousin, Bruce Banner, gave her an emergency transfusion of his gamma-irradiated blood. As She-Hulk, she’s more in control and far prettier than her gargantuan cousin, but her strength (and various other powers) are less significant.
  • Hercules is, well, Hercules, the super-strong half-god son of Zeus. But because we already have one god (sort of) on the Avengers in the form of Thor, he’d probably be a redundant addition. Still, it’s worth noting that he has become one of the more fun - and funny - Marvel characters of the past few years.
  • Spider-Woman is related to Spider-Man in name only, so does that mean Sony doesn’t have her movie rights? No, really, this is a serious question here.

  1. Wolverine,spiderman,Ms.marvel are must

    • Wolverine and Spider-Man need to wait.
      I’m a huge Daredevil fan, but there are TONS of Avengers stories to be told that REQUIRE the absence of Spider-Man, Wolverine and Daredevil.

      Think of it like this: remember how the cartoon Avengers EMH! introduced the Red Hulk? Where is the She-Hulk? She-Hulk not only has to be introduced, but an established character before someone can bring in Rulk.

      The best course of action for the MCU is to establish ALL of the classic Avengers first, before any of the New Avengers (Spider-Man, Wolverine, Daredevil, etc.). So, Black Panther, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Ms Marvel, Ant-Man, Wasp, Vision (therefore Wonder Man), Falcon, She-Hulk, and many others (We can skip Tigra).

      I REALLY want to see Spider-Man, Wolverine and Daredevil in an Avengers movie, but there is integrity of story to consider here. If Spider-Man, Wolverine and Daredevil are brought in too soon, then you will have continuity issues that are sure to upset the fans (case-in-point; the X-Men movies).

      You could look at it the other way too; Spider-Man in the Avengers before he meets the Black Cat? Daredevil in the Avengers before he dates the Black Widow? Wolverine in the Avengers before he figures out his past? There are continuity issues with this, stories you wont be able to tell, and other characters you will have to skip.

      Not to mention; all the potential Marvel Team-Up movies they wouldn’t make if all these characters were thrown into the Avengers right away.

      • I think they should add daredevil and elektra because even though they were in movies, they really haven’t been introduced much. So that would realy help. They should also add spider man and vision. Mostly vision because he hasn’t been introduced to people movies ever.so that would be great

        • stephanie jacobsen or kristen kreuk should play psylocke if that role is ever introduced or put in a marvel movie.

      • alpha flight and avengers team up movie.

    • Yes I would love to see FireStar after all she’s my all time favorite both from Sprider-Man and his Amazing Friends to Avengers I would love to see Firestar and also Iceman on the Avengers because they would be great help of the Avengers. Maybe in the near feature they could make Firestar movie that would be good to see, what about adding Sheena to the mix as well?

  2. Love how everyone seems to forget that both Black Widow, and Hawkeye were both started out as Avenger villains before they became heroes, or that The Vision does not need the introduction of either Hank Pym or Ultron to appear in an Avengers’ movie since he appeared in the comic book without either to begin with, so why on Earth are either needed now? Especially since the original Avengers’ line up was thrown out the window with the first movie. To me, also Wolverine needs to stay in X-Men that is his group, throwing him into everything Marvel is just going to dilute the character and cause a Wolverine burn out, Spider-Man started out as a loner and 50+ years he should be kept pretty much as one since he loses his appeal when he has to fight other member for his share of what Sheldon Cooper would call Bazingas.

    • Vision was the bastardized re-creation of Ultron, who in turn was created by Hank Pym, so yeah they are connected. Vision is the retooled body of the original Human Torch android and was loosed on the Avengers and was supposed to betray them as part of Ultron’s plan…which backfired. Introducing Pym , leading to his creating Ultron , and Ultron creating Vision could be a great second chapter after the Thanos storyline is done. Know your history or you’ll be forced to watch Superman 4 again and again….

      • Yeah Vision would be a great one to add during the ant man movie.

        • the vision should appear in avengers age of ultron.

      • Aztecace’s (entirely valid) point is that Vision first appeared without that connection. He wasn’t saying they weren’t linked, just that the link doesn’t need to be established first.

        In any case, sticking to actual Marvel history means we need about a thousand plots before we can introduce anyone. Which is why the movies don’t stick to those plots.

    • would missy peregrym want to play the role of she-hulk? or would cameron diaz be interested in playing the role?

  3. In a perfect world. Spiderman could fight solo against his enemies but still be in the universe. When the avengers are taking on people he could just stay away from them for many reasons they could come up with, and continue to avoid being known as peter parker. Then you can have the fantastic four be somewhat the same thing, fight doom and galactus but stay somewhat seperated like they do in comics. Xmen would be tricky to make, you can start with an orgin movie about deadpool, beast, wolverine, professor X, or jean grey. whichever you use be sure to at least cameo quite a few of the other xmen. My suggestion is have wolverine start, maybe join with beast. Have a few people cameo and join the avengers after their movie (since they are with avengers in some stories) then have another movie about charles xavier, and start to make a feel that “mutants stay with mutants” which would make beast and wolverine leave the avengers and join the xmen. This way you can do spin offs of anyone you want in the xmen, have beast and wolverine join the factions needed (along with scarlet witch) and have a whole mutant war with magneto while having a way to keep it seperate from the avengers, keep all of that war hidden from them (like in the xmen movies that where terrible keeping it hidden from the humans for the most part). Now you have spidy alone and hiding fighting his fights, the avengers with their apropriate spin offs, xmen with their spin offs, and fantastic four have the door to joining the avengers always open, same with guardians of the galexy.. Lastly this allows enemies like norman osborn, galactus, ultron, thanos ect.to be used to their full potential as they obviously don’t just fight the avengers or one superhero. but then again movie rights screw everything up as it would prety much take a reboot (if they even somehow get xmen fantastic4 and spidy) to make everything run smoothly.

  4. ill say wolverine,spiderman, black panther, and war machine

  5. You blundered when you said the Black Panther is on a genius level of The Batman; and please don’t put the Captain and the Batman in the same category; the Bat is by far better… okay thanks

    • Captain america is very close to batman. Remember in hand to hand captain is stronger, faster, and lots of other things more than bat. Also has a shield.

      • Taskmaster should be in captain america 3, that would be amazing.

    • Your the one who’s a blunder. Your most probably right about Cap not being on Batman’s intelligence level but Black Panther? He surpasses Batman in intelligence. BP in his first appearance single handedly took down the Fantastic Four using plans and traps trailered for them when Batman was still fighting crazy quilt and Kite man. BP fought Mephisto ,Dr Doom and The Silver Surfer who all outmatch him in raw power but took them down using his mind. Batman isn’t even in the top ten smartest people on earth. Black Panther is seventh. And that’s just intelligence not skill and strategy. He even stated that he could build an Iron Man suit if he wanted, and people in the MU have been trying to reverse engineer Iron Man since he appeared on the scene. So no Batman is not smarter being more popular doesn’t make you more intelligent.

    • so many good ideas and can’t contain them all.

  6. Robert Downey Jr would have made an amazing Dr. Strange. To bad he could’nt do both roles.

    • SOOOOOOOO true. Just think how iron man just won’t be the same when Downey Jr stops being him :(.

    • Maybe Johnny Depp will do..

      • miles morales spider-man should get a live action movie.

        spider-man 2099 should also get a live action movie.

  7. Put Spiderman, Moon Knight, Daredevil, Wolverine, and the New Warriors.

    • when is marvel going to make a movie about night-thrasher and the new warriors and if they do who is going to play night-thrasher,he doesn’t have any powers and he kind of reminds me of daredevil but with a little more to it.and when is marvel going to make a team excalibur movie as well as a power pack movie and an alpha flight movie,also a big hero 6 movie.

  8. don’t forget that the actors that played captain america and human torch is the same..sooooo..that would mean no fantastic four in avengers 2.

  9. I really want them to introduce Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver. Then there could be a House of M movie.

  10. For AVENGERS 2 add SpiderMan, Wolverine, The Falcon, War Machine/Iron Patriot, Quick Silver and Scarlett Witch.

  11. I would like to see Black Canary, Firestar, Iceman, Jubliee and Sue Storm as Invisable Woman from the Fantastic Four.

  12. Black Canary is part of the DC universe.

    • Oh ok what about Sheena? Spider-woman, Silver Suffer or Tabbitha Boom Boom.

  13. if u want a great team u should have wolverine in it

    • Not only him but Spiderman as well.

  14. Surprised that the Maximoff twins are not on this list. Looks like they have made the cut though to be in the 2nd movie.

  15. Also with Marvel having Daredevil back, would you want to see him in?

  16. I think War Machine is a fantastic and viable addition to The Avengers, especially with Robert’s talk of giving up his character of Stark; on account of his age and not wanting to be “type-cast” for the remainder of his career.

    Personally, I would also love to see Spider-Man and Wolverine make a debut to The Avengers film franchise!

  17. ms marvel, black panther, wasp, ant man are a must. extras like iron fist, luke cage and nova can wait

  18. ms marvel, black panther, wasp and ant man are a must, extras like iron fist, luke cage and nova can wait

  19. I don’t get the point of adding #15, someone the author does not want to see in Avenger’s 2? There are still others who were at one time a member of the Avengers so it is assumed that they would not make this list either, simply because the rest of them, you don’t want to see in Avenger’s 2.

    Put Wonder Man in a different article called, ‘Avengers who should not be in the Avenger movies”

  20. they need agent venom!

  21. Firestar- I would like to see her appear in this movie but I would also would like for her to be in the new X-men movie as well.
    Sheena- Princess of the jungle I would love for her to be in this movie as well she seem to fit more in with the Justice League then for the Avengers though.
    Jubliee- I would love it if she was in this movie to see her in action instead seeing her as a shy type afraid of using her powers to fight just see her coming out of her shell that’s the main thing.
    Suzane Storm Invisitable woman-I love her she’ll be a great character for the show seeing her fight side by side with maybe Firestar or Black Widow would great to see.
    Iceman- I would love it if he was Firestar love interest in both in X-man in Avengers that be great to see. Iceman is a great fighter and a tuff guy.

  22. They should only add two more heroes to the sequal. Spiderman and War Machine or since Iron Man 3 (Iron Patriot)… Which both should be played as the actors they were most recently… Don Cheadle and Andrew Garfield… NOT TOBY MACGUIRE PLEASE!!
    I believe Andrew Garfield did a way better job as did Don Cheadle

  23. When someone writes an piece of writing he/she retains the idea of a user in his/her brain that how a user can understand it.

    So that’s why this paragraph is perfect. Thanks!

  24. Where T.F is Monica Photon? C’mon son, this article brings up the excellent point of the need for more diversity on the Avengers team, and she delivers a double-offensive in this regard. Plus her powers are cool, plus she’s hot (at least to me she is) plus there was th TEENSIEST bit of sexual tension between her and Blk Panther back in “4 the hard way”, at least before they brought in Storm!

    • Didn’t the rules say No Profanity? Why did you cuess Tony? Anyway they should get rid of The Scarelet Witch and Speedy and put in Firestar and Iceman or Spider-Woman and Wonderman in this movie instead. What do you guys think?

    • hawk eye should have worn goggles or glasses in the avengers movie but he didn’t which was somewhat dissapointing.

  26. never understood why J-Whedon chose the 2 Avengers that had NO SuperPowers to put in the movie when he could’ve chosen them with Powers, it makes sense now to have QUICKSILVER because he is basically like THE FLASH of Marvel and SCARLET WITCH is Marvel’s answer to WONDER WOMAN, Avengers 2 will be very very exciting it seems now that they will include these 2, i CAN’T wait

  27. I think the most important thing is that they add more women more people of color. It sounds like The Falcon will be in the movie, but I’d rather see Black Panther. War Machine/Iron Patriot could also make it into the movie.

    I think my first choice for a female character would be Scarlet Witch, but since she is the daughter of Magneto, and it seems they are keeping the X-men and Avengers franchises separate that seems unlikely. The Wasp could also be an interesting choice but it sounds like Antman will be happening after Avengers 2. So even if Antman does show up in Avengers 2 there’s no way The Wasp could be in Avengers till the third movie.

    I think an interesting choice for a female character would be Moondragon. Since her origin story is connected to Thanos it would make since for her to show up in a movie that features him as the villain.

  28. for me blackpanther, war machine and was will do it for a start and maybe spiderman but not so much
