If I had my way, no one would. I would make a movie that would slant a little in Cap's favor, but all characters would get their due.

But I think Pym will get the Cyclops treatment.

I dunno; if they go Ultimates, which I suspect they might, they have a really good division of screen time.

I'm more a 616 man, but Ultimates is so obviously written to be a movie, I can't imagine Marvel passing it up.

I think the average fan won't mind Ultimates as long as the characters aren't written all dumb and millary; basically the same arc, but with more 616 characterization. Ultimates 1, though a good story, makes you hate the heroes, save for maybe Janet.

I'm an original Avengers fan and always will be but I can appreciate the Ultimates for its cinematic qualities too.

Spider-Fan, I like that presentation of Pym... The real lure of superheros and all these stories is the person who is the character. Their backstory, hero's motivation, etc... is what brings readers (and hopefully movie-goers) back over and over.

that being said, I wouldn't mind an Ant-Man movie set with a different Ant-Man post Avengers.

Avengers without a good Pym character is just a Thor/ Iron Man/ Cap teamup.

It would help Pym's profile in the movie if they portrayed him as Giant Man as it would make him a larger than life character, no pun intended, figuratively and literally.

Even if they do ant-man for a solo movie, Giant Man would be preferable for Avengers.

If I was making these films though, in the sequel... Hawkeye and Black Widow being the other "main guys" along with Pym. Pym's hostile behavior toward his wife would start to wedge the team apart. For a bonus, I'd also try to get Thor and Iron Man back for the final battle ONLY if the same actors are willing to do it.

On a side note... if Marvel ever decides they need to kill off a character in movie one (which they'll never do)... it should be Cap. Because I don't think solo sequels would be effective for that character and I also think it would make the character all the more special with only a select few appearances on the big screen.

Disagree whoever they get to play Cap will probably be signed for 3 movies which seems the way studios go especially if they are successful. Cap will do solo first, Avengers second, and probably Avengers 2. Now if Cap becomes a popular character which I think he will I find it highly unlikely Marvel would kill him off.

You'll see my villain selection. I based my decision on the theme I was going for.

I am not saying they should (on the Cap death)... but I don't think it would be terrible if they did. In his first movie he almost gets killed... in Avengers he pays the ultimate sacrifice. A major death would pack a lot more emotion into the film and it wouldn't just become a summer popcorn... I am not saying go the X-3 route... just saying it wouldn't be a terrible move, especially if they use a former WW2 villain for Avengers. Cap taking on Ultron and Kang in sequels isn't my cup of tea and it would water down the character IMO.

You can't kill the Cap

I don't think anyone should die movie one personally.

I agree, it definitely would be add a load of gravitas to the movie. The only thing is I think that Cap has the potential, if nailed the way RDJ nailed Iron Man, to be an extremely memorable character. The WWII guy triumphing and leading by example in these troubled times. I think it would be a huge mistake for Marvel to squander such a special hero let alone bucketloads of cash. Believe me if they continue to make Avengers movies people will be going to see Cap like they do Wolverine in Xmen.
