    Assuming the original lineup includes:

    Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Ant-Man, Wasp

    What characters would you add to that lineup? How would your roster change if at all in the sequels... keeping in mind the actors may not return for an entire trilogy/franchise? I'd go:


    Avengers 1: Original lineup + Black Widow

    Avengers 2: Captain America, Thor, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Giant Man, Wasp

    Avengers 3: Giant Man, Hawkeye, Black Panther, Vision, Scarlet Witch, Quick Silver.


    How would you do it?

    I'd agree with yours except

    Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch? They are probably packaged into the X-Men rights the Fox currently has right?

    I'd put in Ms Marvel/Warbird and Namor

    By Avengers 3... it could be as far as 2017 if they go three years between each film... if not longer. Marvel may have the rights by then. Plus, Namor isn't an Avenger member. I'd add Ms. Marvel if they still can't use SW or QS... but I'd like to see the mutant characters introduced before those you mentioned because they are iconic members.

    Its been noted in past contracts and probably why Fox talked about a Daredevil reboot a while back, that as long as the studio is making projects then they keep the rights. And they'll milk X-Men for all it has.

    Obviously they would be go to members, I dont deny that, but I doubt their availability.

    Elecktra was what??? 2005? It's back to Marvel by the next new year. Marvel also did re-acquire Hulk the fifth year with a distribution deal. Obviously Fox is going to want more than a distribution deal. I just do not believe these spinoffs will keep Fox afloat. A Wolverine trilogy??? I doubt the first film will be much of a success... Deadpool??? Nothing much there outside the fanbase IMO. X-Men: First Class seems to be their only film on the horizon worth looking out for. Even then... how successful will it be if it they end up casting it with a bunch of teenage actors? I am not saying they won't consider making X-4... I am saying what is the likelyhood they will go through with X-4 if they are making marginal profits in the meantime? If Fox doesn't have X-4 ready by 2013 then that's the time Marvel should proceed to buy them out... go through with X-4 themselves... use the appropriate mutants for Avengers movies and other mutant crossovers if need be.

    Im curious where the rights to The Black Panther lie...i mean, he was originally a Fantastic Four character, so do Fox have the rights?

    Anyway; for a three picture deal, my choices are:

    Avengers #1 - Cap, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Ant-Man, Wasp

    Avengers #2 Cap, Hawkeye, Widow, Goliath, Wasp, Hercules (if Pietro and Wanda can be used, then i'd put them in place of Widow and Herc)

    Avengers #3 - Any variation of the above, plus Vision.

    I think Fox has the rights to Silver & Witch right now. But if Fox &/or Sony to cross-over, I'd like to see them along with Spidey &/or Wolverine in future movies. Maybe start getting New Avengers characters around the third movie. The first two should be strictly classic Avengers.

    Vader... I don't know why you keep begging for New Avengers in every thread... it will never happen. Stick with the comics for now. BUT... if and when Marvel re-acquires the rights to their other major characters... I don't need to want to see them watered down immediately in a New Avengers franchise with all do respect. If you milk it like that, where "Oh we already used IM, Cap, and Thor in the same film... now we need Spidey/Wolverine together..." it won't be successful. I think you honestly have to start over. X4-X6... maybe some more Spiderman films, do another PROPER Wolverine movie since that concept of quality seems to have gone over Fox's head once again. Then proceed with New Avengers, Civil War... whatever. I just think you have to either reboot, or follow up on the previous incarnations of those characters in future SOLO films before you move ahead with another crossover. Otherwise the cross over concept will be watered down and it will lose its appeal just a few years after Avengers.

    Yeah, I guess that makes sense. But, I wish we could atleast see Quicksilver & Scarlet Witch. I really doubt Fox will move ahead with Magneto, so what use are they to Fox?

    I don't know how you tie in that mutant universe in all honesty, but it's not like mutants are in every other Marvel comic. The point being... who is to say mutants can't exist in the developing Avengers universe? In a perfect world you want to see Marvel do X-Men films of their own before putting characters like SW and QS in Avengers films. But I really do think you could acknowledge the existence of mutants in the Avengers universe without it being a major problem. So I can live with it if they take a couple of characters out of that universe. The only problem is the rights. If you guys want it out of Fox's hands... boycott their X-Men films. Simple as that.

    If Quick & Witch are owned by Marvel, maybe there can be sly little hints to their past like someone saying to Quick "You look alot like Ian McKellen". :D

    Did I spell his name right?

    Yeah, I always wondered if FOX owns the rights to the concept of Marvel universe mutants or whether they just own the rights to X-Men related characters. Cause the entire mutant phenominon is one of the biggest plot devices in the MU, having threads of it that go everywhere.

    I`d say have a trilogy with the classic line-up and then have Iron Man and Thor (and hulk if he`s still around) leave and I`d say keep ant-man, captain america and wasp on the team. Bring in black panther, hercules, hawkeye, scarlet witch and quicksilver gradually over the next trilogy.

    Wonder how they'd explain Hercules without the public rolling an eye. Some characters work IMO... others don't... at all...

    I say keep the same cast from Avengers 1 through Avengers 3, with some cameos of other characters in 3.
    As the original cast members leave after the 3rd film, if some decide to move on after their contracts are up, bring in new characters. First introduce them in the 3rd film though.
    For example, introduce Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in the 3rd film as side characters, but then make them bigger stars of the 4rth Avengers film.
    They can keep the Avengers film franchise going by doing this. Like with a James Bond movie keep it going for as long as the audience will watch.

    After Avengers 3, Avengers 4 and on, can rotate the cast as the actors come and go. This would be Marvel's chance to get in characters like She-Hulk, Quick Silver, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Hercules, Falcon, Beast, and so on.

    Maybe even spin some of them off into their own franchise.

    I'd go with original line-up plus Vision, a good female other than Scarlet Witch (only because she is a mutant and mutants are a FOX property), or Tigra, I guess that leaves me with She-Hulk as my next fav.
