I keep seeing people suggest that Hawkeye and Black Widow be dropped for Pym and Wasp. I don't understand it. They've introduced the team, they've shown them bond, now Whedon will get to play with that dynamic. Dropping half of the team will mess with the camaraderie this film established, which was perhaps the biggest key to it working

Yes, the roster rotates in the comics. Once the arcs have finished, and a new era starts up

This arc has just begun

Taking out BW and Hawkeye is insane. They were great in TA and it would be terrible to rid them in favor of a tiny woman and a guy who controls ants. Ant Man is cool but i prefer he stays solo for the time being. You could maybe work him in but no Wasp. Wasp would be the most silly and pointless character in these movies.

They see me rollin', they hatin....
