Avengers 2 Rumors! Thanos, Ant-Man, Falcon & More!


There's no other comic book movie right now getting more excitement and buzz circulating around it than the sequel to the mega smash blockbuster The Avengers movie. Can you say that history repeats itself?

It wasn't too long ago that a torrid of rumors concerning that Thanos would be making an appearance in this years Avengers movie. The wonderful folks at The Latino Review leaked the rumor and it came to be true. 

Since we've all got to take a look at Thanos after the end credits of The Avengers, we now know that Marvel Studios has plans for our favorite Mad Titan. However, in what movie will Thanos wreak his wonderful cosmic madness in?

Many were sure Thanos would be the main baddie in the Avengers 2 sequel, but then Marvel threw us all a curve ball by announcing a Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Then rumors began to circulate that Thanos would be the main villain in Guardians.

Now, it seems that Thanos will be expected to appear in Guardians, but the extent of his role is in question. As for the Avengers sequel, rumor Marvel insider Roger Wardell recently tweeted:

"Thanos will be the mastermind of Marvel's Phase II, so don't just expect to see him in The Avengers 2." 

Marvel Studios President of Production - Kevin Feige - also dropped some knowledge to MTV with a quote saying:

"Clearly, there's a purpose to us putting him in the end of [The Avengers). We do have plans for him. I wouldn't say we ever feel the need to rush anything one way or the other. We succeeded in Phase One because we stuck to our guns and stuck to the plan. That plan took place over many, many years and it ultimately paid off. I see Phase Two unfolding in the same way of us taking our time, us doing what's right for each individual movie, while folding in elements that will not only build up to the culmination of Phase Two, but even Phase Three."

Sounds great to me and other comic fanatics, and all this buzz about Thanos has sparked and increased interest in the character, especially what comic he first appeared in. If you're wondering visit the link to find out what comic issue boasts the first appearance of Thanos!

So what's up with the Falcon? Well, Marvel Studios has already confirmed the title of Captain America's next solo movie - Captain America: The Winter Soldier! It's also been confirmed that the character of The Falcon will be played by Anthony Mackie.

Yikes! Does this mean that The Falcon will be in the Avengers 2? Avengers 2 rumors has it that he will, indeed, have a role in the next major Marvel movie epic. I'm a bit disappointed if that's true. Along with many fans, I was hoping to see The Black Panther get his due in Avengers 2.

After, in my poll in what Avenger do you want to see in the sequel, Black Panther came out victorious by a huge margin, so it's not just me who wants to see him on the big screen. You can check out my poll and vote at the link above.

But what if The Falcon isn't in Avengers 2? Then my question is why introduce him in Captain America: The Winter Soldier?

Besides, it's already a sausage fest in the Avengers movie. I mean, The Black Widow was a bit lonely there. Let's put in another hot female superhero in there, and no other female comic character deserves to assemble in the next Avengers movie than The Wasp!

Yes, she is an original member of the Avengers and wife to Dr. Henry Pym, a.k.a. Ant-Man! And speaking of Ant-Man, it looks like the long-talked about Ant-Man movie is finally coming into fruition!


Word on the street is that the highly anticipated Ant-Man movie will begin shooting late this year after Thor 2 - Thor: The Dark World - wraps production. This may lead to the Ant-Man movie making a late 2014 release after Cap's sequel is released.

If that is the case, then the Ant-Man and Wasp just make it in time to assemble with their original team members for the Avengers 2 sequel. However, this is speculation and an Avengers 2 rumor. No confirmations has been made.

Regardless, it would be a shame if these two founding members were introduced in Marvel Studios phase III instead of phase II. However, later is better than never. 

Nevertheless, my fellow comic collecting and comic investing fans, news about the Ant-Man movie has invigorated much interest in his and The Wasp's first Marvel Comic appearances. Be sure to click the link to discover the issues that have quickly become two of the most important comics to invest in for 2012 and beyond!

Oh, yes, and casting for the Ant-Man has yet to unfold, but what actor and actress do you think would make a great Henry Pym (Ant-Man) as well as The Wasp?
