After having saved Manhattan, Hulk, Iron Man and Co have gone their separate ways until their time will come to reassemble in The Avengers 2 in 2015.Thor has returned Loki and the Tesseract to Asgard where the goodlooking God of Mischief is about to stand trial to Odin. Joss Whedon’s 2012 Avengers turned out a huge global box office hit: it has earned little over 1 billion US$ – a standalone success. So this is where we start out in Avengers 2, and the story in store is still pretty much „hush-hush“ – like the characters and cast which are generally among the American film industry’s best kept secrets.
It has come as no surprise that Joss Whedon has been contracted to dircet this sequel. The rest ist oscure. Still, when talking about his latest independent production of Shakespeare’s „Much Ado About Nothing“ with USA Today he offered a few insights concerning new characters. Comic book readers who have watched Avengers up until the end will proboably assume that Thanos might play an intrical role as archvillain. This is of course possible, but as of now, unconfirmed. Still Joss revealed the introduction of two new characters to The Avengers’: Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.
According to rumors Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass 2) might come out as Quicksilver while very wild speculations hint to Irish actress Saoirse Ronan as Scarlet Witch. We shall see. IF however Thanos is in the Avengers 2 Mix, havoc awaits – plus the pain of casting the guy!
