Favreau names The Avengers
The Avengers film is still three years away, and no one has been given the job of directing it yet. But Jon Favreau has spilled the beans on the characters that will appear in The Avengers film.
Considering how close it's release is to Iron Man 2, Jon Favreau may be out of the picture, but maybe he knows something we don't.
...the ones Marvel is talking about now are Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Ant-Man and Iron Man. I would love to see that.
Going by Marvel's release schedule that makes perfect sense, with an Ant-Man film set for 2010. An individual film for each and then The Avengers. The fact they are rushing along an Iron Man sequel will probably mean Favreau can't direct it though. And what about an Incredible Hulk sequel if they have one. I can see The Avengers being a huge film, but mostly if they get the actors from the recent film all together. Not sure how possible that will be though.
Would you be interested in a newly cast Iron Man or Hulk for The Avengers? Is there another Avenger you'd rather see. I quite like the idea of The Hulk being an enemy of sorts, like in The Ultimates, not sure they'll go for it though.
