This is the advantage of having a writer/director who is an actual fan of the comics: He understands the team dynamic and its tradition of constant evolution. It seems certain that we're going to see some new members in TA2. I'm hoping that this was a hint that Whedon will introduce Ant-Man & The Wasp, though the holdups in the Ant-Man solo movie may make this doubtful.
He could've been just using an example from the comics, but I *hope* Joss slipped up a bit here by saying "Giant-Man" instead of "Ant-Man." I hope to hell Pym shows up in the Avengers as Giant-Man and Lang is Ant-Man....I really, really would rather that Hank be giant-sized in the MCU. He has historically been giant-sized for far, far, far longer than ant-sized.

Also in that article, Joss posed a teaser about somebody who was *supposed* to be a villain for the team "to whale on" in addition to Loki, and he refuses to name names because Marvel indicates that they may use him later. Obviously not talking about Thanos --- there'd be no need for secrecy about that, since the cosmic cat is already out of the bag --- so feel free to speculate away.
