Re: The Avengers 2! The Official News and Speculation Thread - Part 2
I for one hope they are introduced as bad guys, albeit because they're being manipulated or mislead, and only become Avengers at the end of the movie. Or perhaps not even join at the end of TA2, just leave things open to the possibility and have them join in a later film.
