Re: The Avengers 2! The Official News and Speculation Thread - Part 1
But it also sounds like basic movie salesmanship, too. What are you going to advertise to a journo as your main selling points in a movie? Its stars, most likely.
We've already seen "evidence" of a 7-man Avenger team in the new cartoon which is supposed to be based on the MCU Avengers, and Falcon is conspicuously present as the 7th member there.
In any event, note that Feige emphasizes that this is still the early stages of the script, and there may still be changes to the lineup over the next 2-3 years. But it *sounds* like he's saying that the first draft features IM, Cap, Thor, Hulk, Widow, Hawkeye and Falcon as the "Magnificent Seven."
