I heard Cable's owned by Marvel, maybe Witch is too? Quicksilver isn't since he was in X-Men Origins.

I think that if the hulk is in the movie it should be mostly banner and hes working in shield labs with the pyms. id like to see the pyms in action too. hank as antman though so there isnt two different serums/chemicals that shrink/grow size. just a shrinking one. then his robotics could give janet wings so she doesnt grow wings and he can develop a helmet. maybe pull hulk out at the end for a big battle too. but otherwise heres my list:
Main Avengers:
Captain America
Iron Man
Thor
Black Widow
Hawkeye
Back-Up Avengers:
Ant-Man
Wasp
War Machine
Hulk/Bruce Banner

- Captain America
- Iron Man
- The Hulk
- Thor
- Black Widow
- Ant Man
- Wasp

I'd say they should keep the roster relatively small, like that, so that the characters are more fleshed out and it's not just a cameo-fest. You have to keep in mind that aside from all those heroes there's going to be characters like Nick Fury fighting for time, as well as whatever villains they choose to throw into the mix.

IMHO the team will consist of:

Capt America
Iron Man
Antman
Wasp

With possible appearances by Hulk, Hawkeye and Thor.

Im disappointed Antman hasnt come along yet. If they didnt screw it up, Antman could make for a very cool scifi movie, and can introduce Wasp, Hawkeye and Ultron.

Along with Capt America, you have the foundation for The Avengers right there.

Ok, I just saw the article that quotes the team as being Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and Nick Fury, with Black widow being a possible addition.

So Im already disappointed.

where did you hear that? it just sucks because that's NOT the avengers. just a team-up of 3-4 heroes.

Of course, that doesnt mean anything is concrete, but does give a indication of where theyre going and what theyre thinking.

A team of 4 heroes isnt a bad thing. It will prevent problems like the Xmen films ran into.

As I said I would prefer Cap, Iron Man, Wasp and Antman to start things off. A Antman movie would have been a great foundation for Avengers, as it could have introduced us to 2 major players, The Pyms, the Avengers nemesis, Ultron, as well as other characters, such as Hawkeye and even SHIELD (maybe Pym is working for them with their technology). In my opinion, its a huge missed opportunity.

I dont like the trade off of Hank Pym for Nick Fury. I was hoping it was just for the first film, but there doesnt seem to be any mention of Pym from that quote. Again that sucks, how hard is it to introduce Pym by saying hes a scientist for SHIELD?

The thing is Im not even a huge fan of Antman, and maybe its just my age showing here (I read Avengers from mid70s, from around age 5, to mid 80s).....but he just belongs as a part of the team. I know the mob may come after me for this, but he belongs there more than Thor does (and I LOVE Thor).

Pym needs to just be a scientist working for SHIELD in Avengers. Thor has to be on the team. He just has to be.

He is.

It's still too early to know the actual team, so I'm hoping Fury & Widow will be replaced by the Pyms &/or Hawkeye.

It would not disappoint me if it's just Cap, Thor, Iron Man and Fury(wich maybe Hulk being involved) because it's the foundation of a franchise, right. If the filmakers feel that four heroes banding together would be more than enough to create a solid super-hero movie out of that and that more characters would be too much then I would respect that. This is difficult to put all this together. And I prefer this thinking than what Fox usualy does with the X-Men movies and Wolverine where they put too much characters in one movie and it become a mess where the important characters do not have enough facetime.

Remember this a franchise. You could have four or five heroes plus the villain. This would include many supporting cast, plus the civiliants and SHIELD Agents and maybe army guys. Then next movie you bring in Ant-Man and Wasp and Hawkeye, etc...

i think that regardless of screen time and too many characters that the pyms should be in there. i know many ppl arent fans, and to be honest niether are close to my favorites. but i just always had my five favorite avengers as cap, IM, thor and the pyms. it fits. it looks right. they dont have to be big time players or fighters just have them in there

X-Men had its characterisation problems stemming from the fact that the movie opened with 7 good guys being introduced at the same time. With the inevitable focus being on Wolverine, the others were going to suffer.

The Avengers have the good fortune of 4 good guys having already starred in their own solo movies. Two further ones (Fury and Widow) having had substantial roles in one or more of those solo movies. Character establishment is therefore not an issue with the Avengers and therefore does not preclude the movie from introducing 3 additional characters (Hawkeye, Hank and Janet Pym IMO) without risking lack of character development for them. The core four will carry the movie, and their established personalities and sensibilities will actually encourage development of the secondary characters by playing off people who are already known.

I hope Fury has only a bit part and does not go on missions with the Avengers - he needs to be supprt only.

As much 616 Avengers as possible - I don't want an Ultimates movie

this, for sure
I think the first Avengers film should be about...
Captain America
Ironman
Hank and Janet Pym
Hulk
and Thor
the core group
with Black Widow and Nick Fury doing the government's shot calling from the sidelines
way way on the sidelines

I played Ultimate Alliance 2 for the first time last night - running around with Cap, Iron-man, Wolverine and Spidey - but with Fury calling the shots.

THIS IS WHAT I DON"T WANT!

Why does Cap and Iron man need Fury telling them to do anything

I'd like to see Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Giant Man, the Wasp, and the Hulk mainly because they're the original Avengers. Not everyone has to have a huge roll. The Hulk's role could be small, maybe he'll come in during the final battle to help, and I could live with Marvel making the Pyms into Shield scientists on the verge of discovering a growth/shrinking serum and artificially intelligent robot warriors, rather than full fledged superheroes.

It would actually be cool if the Pyms were just scientists in the first movie, and in the second movie they had to utilize their newly perfected growth/shrinking serum to help fight Hank's creation, Ultron, who managed to put two or three Avengers (like the powerless Hawkeye or Black Widow) out of commission.

I don't agree with the idea that we should cut out the Pyms just because they're not mainstream Marvel characters. In my opinion the Black Widow isn't a mainstream Marvel character, but nobody seems to have a problem with them using her in the Iron Man movie, and then basically (if rumors be true) tripling her importance for the Avengers movie. Why should the Black Widow suddenly get all this attention just because she's getting what could wind up being a small role in the Iron Man movie? She may even be a villain-type in IM2.

If they want to throw Hawkeye in there, that's fine, but no Hawkeye and Black Widow on the team. They're basically the same character: commando/spy type with no super powers.

well, they don't really
they're jsut working for him
in the game, he solicits them to do a job
in the Avengers, he is the liason between them and SHEILD
