Re: Avengers 2 News, Rumors, Etc. Pictures until release...

On the one hand, I'm excited about Ultron in the next film (with the added possibility that Vision might appear), but on the other hand, I'm very disappointed by the decision not to include Hank Pym.

Yeah, he would be a welcome addition. However you have to look at it from Marvel's perspective, I'm sure they want to introduce him in his own film first before sticking him into the Avengers films.


If anything, blame Edgar Wright for taking so long.

Could it be? Is Vin Diesel Kang the Conqueror? It could work.
Popular fan theory is that Vin Diesel will be playing the Vision.
I've never understood this. Can anybody really see Diesel as the Vision? That's terrible casting.

Dude's going to be Ultron.

Re: Avengers 2 News, Rumors, Etc. Pictures until release...

Ultron? Honestly, I'm excited for the movie, but not the villain. Ultron is easily my least favorite recurring avengers villain (with Kang being a close second). He's not that interesting, but when he was it was always because of his connection to Pym. I hope Stark isn't his creator in this. I really enjoy RDJ's Iron man/Tony stark, but he really doesn't need to be in the center of everything in the movie Marvel U. but, with no Pym and Stark's obvious ability to make aI's (atleast I'm assuming thats what you'd call Jarvis) he seems the most likely candidate as Ultron's creator.

Back in the day, fans used to liken the Vision to Spock...that's the type of casting they should go for (if that's what they're doing at all).

EXACTLY. I remember those days well. The Vision is tall, stately, logical, and emotionally cool (but not cold).

Re: Avengers 2 News, Rumors, Etc. Pictures until release...

First no Hank Pym, now no Phil Coulson. At least, not yet.

I can actually understand this one. However he winds up being back, it might be a bit confusing to casual viewers only familiar with the movies to see him in the sequel. And as Joss says at the link, everyone finding out that Coulson is alive (or whatever) is a whole other B-Story that the movie doesn't need

But the movie will take place after the series?

Arrr, that again.

Finding out that Coulson is alive would be an entire B story.
The hell it is.

Look at Lord of the Rings. Gandalfs return from the dead takes one 2-minute action scene and 5 minutes of exposition.

^But you'd need to address all the Avengers' reaction to it. I mean Tony and Cap were already having reservations about working with SHIELD after what they discovered, it's going to be a major betrayal if they find out Fury used Coulson's death to manipulate them.

Plus, I get the impression that they want to save the story behind Coulson's return as one of the main storylines for the tv show.

All that, and he even comes with his own variation of the Vulcan Neck Pinch.

Joss Whedon talks about The Scarlet Witch's costume.

I think the future movies will head towards the avengers not accepting SHIELD and doing their own thing


Captain America 2 has Cap wear a SHIELD issued version of his suit. Apparently he won't like it and goes to his old WWII suit or a mix of old and new.

They might build to a loose adaptation of Civil War, maybe with a role reversal for Iron Man and Captain America.
