Start with four films. Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, And Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.E.I.L.D. Each film will set up each character, and their early exploits. Captain America would be Tom Clancy style espionoge set in WWII with super soldiers and assasins in red skull helmets and all that kickassery. Iron Man would be James Bond meets the Six Million Dollar Man, with industrialist Tony Stark facing off against Chinese crime lord, the Mandarin. Thor would be Highlander on the scale of Lord of the Rings. A trauma surgion discovers that he is Thor reincarnate, begins preaching of a better way of life to people, and gets confronted by Loki and his brood. Nick Fury is over the top spy action with a leading man who would shove Bond's martini up his ass and proceed to bang the bond girl.

Then, they make "The Avengers," which serves as a sequel to all four of these films, plus The Hulk. Nick Fury, at the behest of the U.S. government and the U.N., puts together a tactical unit designed to deal with extra normal threats. Tony Stark is brought on as a financer, weapons designer, and feild agent. We're introduced to Giant Man and The Wasp. Bruce Banner, who's been dopping himself with his cure for his condition like crazy is brought on as a genetics expert, and works with Giant Man and Wasp. Betty Ross, who has since split with Bruce (again), is also brought on as a scientist and helps with the team's P.R. (along with biology, she studied jopurnolism in college). They try to recruit Thor, who at the time refuses, and the thaw out Cap. The movie progresses as the book did from there.
That's the way to do it. If those origin movies come out close to each other (meaning within a couple years), a full team-up as a sequel would work great. I'm really surprised that they seem to be leaning that way, and I hope they pull it off. I mean, even to the average moviegoer, the prospect of putting all these characters together after seeing them on-screen separately would be pretty attractive.

I dont like this idea, but Sam Jackson is dead-on for Fury.

Prolly because it was loosely based on him.

Default Live-Action Avengers being planned

The Avengers as a live-action film, part of Marvel's Q2 announcements - Marvel Entertainment unveils its Q2 2006 Earnings which includes an updated list of film, DTV and TV projects for Marvel Studios. Interesting notes:

Interestingly 'The Avengers' also tops a list of live-action Marvel-produced films further down the the pipeline...a list that also includes Black Panther, Cloak & Dagger, Doctor Strange, Hawkeye, Power Pack and Shang-Chi.

Also interesting are the titles of TV series that would join Blade in the live-action roster, including Alter Ego (based on Bendis' excellent Alias comic) and Skrull Kill Krew.

Near-term Marvel-produced features include Ant-Man, Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Nick Fury and Thor are listed as Marvel-produced features.

Films under license to other studios are Wolverine, The Punisher 2, Magneto, Namor and Luke Cage.

Upcoming animated TV shows include Fantastic Four, Wolverine and Iron Man.



Sounds interesting. Marvel is Definitely upping their game. Unlike DC and their GL in Name only...Sorry got off topic (Bastards). Anyway, Most of Marvels heroes have their own movies, makes sense for them to all get together and be the biggest film of all time. Pay attention DC stop making crap and you can make money too.

But still fun to speculate about!

It's close. The Hulk is already established, and Iron Man & Ant-Man are on the way....

All we need now is Thor. (Captain America wasnt a founding member)...

But integral to the founding of the Avengers.


EDIT: As seen in Avengers #4. Either way, I doubt theyll go with the intital line-up, theyll have more high profile members.

the problem is different characters are owned by different studios, so we may get sort of a crap line up for it...like, say if Fox owned the rights to the avengers, we'd see a line up probably consisting of Daredevil, Ghost Rider, The X-Men and the Fantastic Four...I just dont see this really working too great

I believe Thor, Captain America, and Ant-Man are all under Marvel films right now, and Hulk reverted back there as well from Universal...i think Iron Man is under New Line, so that could be a problem....unless Marvel just loans out the other Avengers to New Line and lets them make the Avengers movie...

At any rate; Kevin Fiege said that its no coincidence that those particular characters were all getting the big screen treatment, so it WILL happen eventually. (fingers crossed)

Considering it's unlikely that Wasp is getting her own film, it would be best if she's introduced in the Ant-Man film. The classic way. Like her first appearance in Tales to Astonish #44. Have her father Dr. Vernon van Dyne be in the film as well. With of course, Hank Pym as his associate, and Pym eventually creates the "Pym particles".

Now there's two options. Wasp being in the film as his love interest, but not being exposed to the particles. Or Janet being in the film, AND setting her up as Wasp.

I think some characters like Hawkeye should be introduced in the Avengers movie.

Except Marvel has the rights to Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Ant-Man (Hank Pym and Scott Lang), Hawkeye, and Black Panther. Wasp will probally appear in the Ant-Man film.

Guess what, all you need for an Avengers movie are the five founding members and Captain America which Marvel has.

JLA can beat The Avengers anyday of the week.Besides, do you realize the size of what the budget is going to be? If they make this out to be a Fantastic Four movie with stupid jokes and such, I'm going to take my own life,they better not screw this up.

Won't an Avengers movie with all the top tier heroes (Iron Man, Hulk etc) be incredibly expensive ?

Notice how they were FOX Marvel movies? Coincedence?? Sorry but I know how oppressive Fox can be on the creative side of the business so I am willing to give him at least one more chance.

It just seems like this would have to be such a massive project with an incredible amount of effects involved. Even more so than X-Men and FF. But I suppose they can make it work financially.
