I don't know. If one of the interim movies introduces an "evil science organization" like AIM, or even a resurgent Hydra, I think you probably could pass off the Wrecking Crew with a one sentence explanation: "A bunch of two bit crooks that AIM/Hydra turned into superhumans." The trick would be not in selling that this is possible, but convincingly avoiding the plothole of "So, wait, somebody can reliably make superhumans?"

True, you could set it up like that if it was all terrestrial, and we'd seen AIM make superhumans before. That would be a different Wrecking Crew though, admittedly. I agree though, the problem is... "well, why don't they just make more?" Also, wouldn't AIM be defeated in/after whatever movie?

You could just have a small cameo of the Wrecker discovering some asguardian artefact in Thor (or rather a pre-Wrecker criminal) and sharing it with his convict buddies. It could be in the middle of the film or at the end. Most people wouldn't know exactly what it means, because it might not necessarily show them gaining power but just discovering it. Then they could appear properly as the Wrecking Crew in the Avengers for another cameo.

They could even be convicts that SHIELD has in their custody who break into the artefact room. That way it is easy access to them, and shows how they are all together at the same time.

Does anyone know anything more concerning Thanos specifically?
Thanos isn't a part of the FF package fox has.

It's from a while back but I'm pretty sure its up-to-date and they acknowledge if a character(s) have gone back to Marvel since it came out.

In a perfect word, we'd have Ultron as the villain in Avengers 2 with Thanos topping off the sequel in Avengers 3 (Kang is my 2nd choice for A2).
This is what I am hoping for. Thanos In the after credits of Avengers 1. Teased through out two, with an Ultron main story line. And the third having him as the one baddie.

I want a four movie set.

1 - Loki
2 - Ultron
3 - Kang
4 - Thanos

Then a reboot 10 years after the Thanos appearance.

I don't know if they'll keep the same core cast for 4 Avengers films though, but if they do I definately would love to see the villains in this same order.

Or they could film one big film, split it in two, and pay the actors their rates for only one movie (That's what the did with the 1973 Three Musketeers movie. The cast was PISSED!).

Well I think LOTR and POTC had two movies filmed back to back so it's not unheard of.

As far as the cast goes, hopefully with the way the MCU is being set up with future films presumably in the same universe, they'll be able to either set up a second avengers team, or bring in new avengers as other ones cycle out.

I'd rather that be the case, then say, for example, have them recast Iron Man and have the actor suck after such an Iconic run with RDJ.

There's really too much setup still needed to do much of a proper Infinity Gauntlet as Avengers 2. The only real advantage I can imagine for not pushing that until Avengers 3 is the prospect of doing Kang in the third film and doing a time travel story that jumps through the timeline of all their films, Back to the Future 2-style. (If major cast members drop out, this becomes impossible.)

With the You-Know-Who in the You-Know-What Midcredits Spoiler of Avengers (which I figure even the headhunters of Borneo already know about by now), seems like the die has already been cast. Pretty obvious he's being groomed for Part 2.

Maybe it was said already, but I would like it if they did A2 and A3 back to back, with Masters of Evil for the second (thanos pulling more strings behind the scenes) and Thanos being the big boss at the end of A3.

I would avoid Kang in movies just because time travel can get messy and confusing.

Time travel can also mean Box Office Boffo Bonanza.
Back to the Future trilogy comes to mind.

Doesn't necessarily mean he's going to be the main villain in part 2. Whedon said he wanted a more personal story for the second movie. That doesn't exactly scream Thanos.

My guess is that Thanos will be making an appearance in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie while Avengers 2 does its thing and then will come back for Avengers 3.

True, although the difference is that back to the future was always about time travel and this would be a series about other stuff that then starts dealing with time travel.

I'm not completely opposed to the idea, I'm just concerned about how they would handle it. Of course, given their track record for enjoyable movies I shouldn't worry too hard.

Marvel *has* done setups without a payoff before --- no Thunderbolt Ross or Hulkbuster armor come to mind. But I think there'd be a pretty major fanboy revolt if the studio promises Thanos and fails to deliver for 4-5 years. "ZOMG WHERE'S THANOS?!?!" will become the rallying cry for years to come.

Captain Marvel has a point though, Thanos would be the exact opposite of "smaller and more personal" and it would be pretty hard top him in A3?

Filming movies back to back would be the worst possible decision. it wearies cast and crew out. especially the crew. look at the movies shot back to back and look at the last parts of them. you can see how exhausted the crew was. BTTF3 or LOTR:ROTK are good examples for not doing that. POTCMC is another great example.
