I hope it's going to be Falcon, Rhodey, Black Panther or even Wasp in Avengers 3 that provides the Avengers with some much needed color, although Rashida Jones (if she becomes Janet) is mixed.
Maravel does have a diversity problem with the Avengers lineup. They need heroes of color (I'd desperately want Rhodey or Falcon or for A:AOU to introduce T'Challa! If Rashida Jones is Wasp? ) and more women heroes. Scarlet Witch is great. There's a little to critique that they're not going Eastern European/Romani for Wanda. Elizabeth Olsen is a great up-and-coming actress though, so I'm glad they found a spot for her in a Marvel film.

They really did pick a great group for Guardians though. So I do think they recognize the need for racial and gender representation in their movies.

I really hope that Marvel diversifies in Phase three. It's not a just a Marvel problem though, and I understand why they cast movies the way they have. I'm just hoping it gets better.

I'm really glad to get confirmation that Olsen is SW. I can't wait to see the official announcement for the next Phase III movies are

"Joss Whedon, Shane Black, Edgar Wright, James Gunn [and Ryan Coogler]… For as much flack as people give Marvel that's a pretty freaking great group of filmmakers. Kind of feel spoiled."
