Avengers 2 News – Thanos and New Characters Revealed for the Sequel
I remember being super excited with the build up for the first Avengers movie. I wasn’t sure if that excitement would carry over into the next installment but it sure has.
What we are learning today with a little (a lot actually) of help from an awesome site DenofGeek.com:
They are reporting some info including two possible character additions to the Avengers team and just how much Thanos will be in the next movie, if any.
Will he be the main villain in the Avengers 2? Or will he be mentioned and saved in the larger story arc for a more final battle with the team.
In an interview with Desde Hollywood at the latest premiere for Iron Man 3, Josh Whedon was asked why The Avengers should be concerned about someone like Thanos.
“Well, Thanos is more powerful”, said Whedon. “He is so powerful he is not someone you can just try out and punch him. Like he did in the comics, you want him to be threading through the universe and to save the big finale for ‘the big finally’. He is definitely a part of what I have got going on”.
Entertainment Weekly, then, has been able to confirm – citing “a source” – the identity of the brother-sister team that Joss Whedon had said would be joining The Avengers 2. The brother-sister combo in question? That’d be Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. We don’t know who’ll be playing them, but they’re now understood to be in Joss Whedon’s current draft of The Avengers 2.
