If they could balance ALL those characters well enough in a single movie, it'd be quite the blockbusting, cinematic experience. Plus it would be less expected, and it would free up Avengers 3 for another villain or storyline that we might want to see. Assuming it's a possibility, what non-Thanos villain do you think could cap off an Avengers trilogy?
Just a thought, though perhaps an unrealistic one...
I think they're going to do that anyway with Avengers 3. But Thanos has to be the big bad in 3. There's no other way around it. By that time, it will have been 6 years since his first appearance was teased. Can't keep holding him back for long.
