Re: The Avengers 2! The Official News and Speculation Thread - Part 1
I'm sure Joss can handle it. Some characters like Groot and Rocket Racoon don't need any development in the movie or much screen time besides comic relief once or twice. Drax and Gamora only need to be explicitly focused on in the Thanos fight, same with Adam Warlock if he is in the film. The only cosmic character that really needs to be focused on throughout the film if the Guardians are a major part in it is Star Lord...and maybe Nova if he is in the film (as he should be).
As for the Avengers themselves, we've already seen them assemble so that part is out of the way. Now comes the testing of the team. At first you would think this would mean that the team needs even heavier focus, but not necessarily. It's possible Whedon found a way to torture the team that doesn't require the need to be sparked by one event and doesn't need the team to be in one area like in the Avengers, and would naturally involve the Guardians as well. Not to mention the ultimate culmination will probably not come until the tail end of the movie anyway.
