That’s right, the Avengers sequel will have a bigger roster and Whedon hints at just who that character may be! Check it out!
Earlier this month, I revealed that Joss Whedon had been officially confirmed to write and direct the Avengers sequel. Good news, right?
Today, reports are emerging all around the internet of an interview the great man himself did in Japan regarding the Avengers sequel and what fans can expect.
In that interview, not only did Whedon confirm the second movie will be of a smaller scale and more personal, but he also said that he wants the Avengers team to be a little bigger – by at least one member.
Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man is happening apparently, what about him? Ant-Man was, after all, a founding member of the Avengers? Or War Machine perhaps? The character has already played integral parts of both of the Iron Man movies and there have already been rumours of his inclusion in the Avengers sequel.
But maybe it’s somebody else entirely. In the interview, Whedon also name drops another founding Avenger. Who? The Wasp, that’s who.
First off, Whedon doesn’t specifically state that the Wasp character will be in the sequel. He doesn’t even mention her in the same part of the interview. He just mentions the fact that The Wasp was almost in the first Avengers movie, she just didn’t make the cut.
Whedon was seriously considering the Wasp character in The Avengers movie. He had an idea what he wanted to do with the character, but he just couldn’t run with it because there was too much to cram into the movie.
It could mean that Whedon intends to use these ideas in the sequel and make The Wasp an additional member of the team.
Do you want to see the team expand for the sequel or are you happy with the way it is? If you want ot see more Avengers, who do you want to see? Who is your ideal Avengers team?
