What fans and general audiences alike wanted to see was a whole bunch of superheroes teaming up. That's what they'll look for again in Avengers 2.
Well, of course the characters are the reason I'll see it as well, but the comment didn't strike me as being aimed at the characters. He's way too cagey to be that obvious, but we'll never know for sure what he meant. And really, who cares? I'm guessing that there will be seven great characters and seven great moments (at least). Everybody wins!
