Re: The Avengers 2! The Official News and Speculation Thread - Part 1
Eh, I'm not going to jump on the "save Thanos for Part 3; MOE for Part 2" bandwagon just yet. That's a *possible* interpretation of Joss' words, but he doesn't specifically say when "the big finale" happens. Could be 2, could be 3. Could be simply that he's taking a layered approach to TA2, and having them face a group like MOE at first, and then have Thanos show up in "the big finale" of *this* movie --- i.e., the third reel.
If he *is* going MOE, though, I hope it's not a case of just digging up the villains from the previous films, because most are boring as hell and never generated any fan-buzz whatsoever.
The fact that he's now talking about Wanda & Pietro (most likely) seems to indicate a team that's a combination of Brotherhood and Masters. It'd be interesting to see if MS snagged any other Brotherhood villains before Fox could stake a broad-brush claim to all of them.
