    Io9 was theorizing that the comment about tunnel vision and the fact that he's standing in front of Avengers #2 is code that he'll be The Vision in Avengers 2.

    He wouldn't be a bad choice for Vision, actually.

    Would Vin be able to deliver a convincing deep emotionless monotonal voice?

    I'm not sure there is a character or two the masses would instantly gravitate towards ala Wolverine.
    They will have to really focus on structuring a much more solid characterization of the ensemble similar to The Avengers. They failed to make the X-Men films an ensemble after all.

    If they just graft their X-Men template onto X-Force and focus on one character as the "voice" then it not only feels like a cut/paste but I don't see X-Force characters really resonating longterm with general audiences.

    Then again who saw Iron Man opening to $300m in '08, guess if it happens we'll see.

    That movie would have far too many characters.

    Kick-Ass 2 director working on X-Force script with an eye towards directing.

    Well, hypothetically, they would certainly need to trim the team rosters a bit for budgetary reasons alone, if nothing else. Maybe four on each side. Use only a couple of the (expensive) heavy-hitters, say Wolvie and Storm on the X-side along with a few less expensive characters (actors). For the Avengers side, Iron Man, Cap and maybe some new characters who haven't been seen yet. RDJ may prove too expensive, so you may have to replace IM with another Avenger as well. Jackman's star power could conceivably make up for the potential loss of RDJ.

    Add in Spider-Man, and you have nine leads, without even factoring in the villain(s). Avengers had eight leads (including the villain) and three major supporting characters.

    Then they would have to deal with the Quicksilver issue...

    X-Force. Isn't that the New Mutants with bad art?

    That is what the original X-Force was, just the continuation of The New Mutants after that series ended at issue 100 with (bad) Rob Leifield art. IIRC, the editor at the time said that the change was made because any team that lasts 100 could hardly be considered "New" anymore.

    The name has been used for several other teams and concepts, especially in recent years. X-Force was the name of both of the Wolverine-led wetworks teams. Both the team sanctioned by Cyclops and the team that Wolverine kept secret. Currently, there are two teams using the X-Force--Cable and X-Force and Uncanny X-Force.

    I hear Marvel will likely be going after Christian Bale next. :p

    Hugh Jackman knows he doesn't have many more years playing an immortal and AGELESS Wolverine.

    ^ Aye, but perhaps the events of The Wolverine will cause him to age normally from now on? In which case, he could continue on for some time...
