    The Avengers may not have premiered yet, but speculation of sequels never stops so what may the next Avengers movie be about?
    Ign says Civil War:
    http://uk.comics.ign.com/articles/121/1211036p1.html

    There is also many fans ideas of which members the next movie should have:
    http://www.**************.com/fan_fic/news/?a=50367


    I don't say i agree or disagree with some, Civil war would make a great live action event but it would probably need spider-man, not to mention that more heroes and villains need to be introduced (not saying a civil war movie should adapt the comic page by page, but it would be better for an event like that to feature a world full of heroes and not 6-10), so if something like that happens we will still have to wait some time.

    The Avengers 2 was more or less anounced by Marvel as being the end of Phase II, the next movie will probably have more members, who i think are exencial are:

    Ant-Man ( Hank Pym)
    [​IMG]

    Wasp
    [​IMG]

    If they were to add another member it would be:
    Black Panther
    [​IMG]

    Now for the villains there are a lot of good possibilities:
    Skrulls
    [​IMG]

    It's still unknown if Fox still holds the rights of these aliens as they were first Fantastic Four villains, they aparently won't be the villains of the first film as the Loki's army will consist of pirates and criminals of the different 9 realms.

    Ultron
    [​IMG]

    Now, this guy would only be able to be in Avengers if Hank was too, it would make sence for Phase II to lead into a Unicron clash if he was at some point being created during the Ant-Man film

    Thanos
    [​IMG]

    He may or may not appear in Avengers 1 but an army of the worst criminals of the 9 realms? Thanos had those as his army during his first appearance, it wouldn't be strange it was Thanos who gave Loki his army and returned in a sequel to look for the Infinity Gems.

    Kang the Conqueror
    [​IMG]

    He comes from the Future with the purpose to conquer the past, if done right it could be gold, but we'll have to see.

    The Liberators
    [​IMG]

    This may be a more difficult suggestion but it's possible, some time ago it was mentioned that The Avengers would take some inspiration from The Ultimates, so why wouldn't the sequel not take inspiration from The Ultimates 2? The Liberators wouldn't have to consist of the same members, in fact, they kind of seemed more like a modern version of the Masters of Evil.
    The idea could be interesting to have on film, as an answer to the USA using super people various nations decided to create their oun team and launch an attack on the USA


    So, any more ideas of what The Avengers 2 should be about? Any news about the Project? Let's discuss things here

    That could work, too. I *do* think Hank and Janet will be available for Avengers 2, since filming will have wrapped on Ant-Man before TA2 starts shooting.

    Uh, what?

    It's not coming out until November 2015, why would it be wrapped before TA2 starts shooting? :huh:

    The word is that Ant-Man will be Wright's next film and he recently finished World's End. It could start shooting late this year.

    With Edgar Wright at the helm, we would be lucky to see Ant-Man even beginning before Phase VI.

    But that was the word when they were still considering a 2014 release date.

    Why would anyone think that's still the case? There's no reason for them to rush it through production at breakneck pace like that.

    They're in a position where they can film Guardians, Avengers and Ant-Man one at a time instead of all overlappy like the solo sequels.

    Wright is also attached to yet another remake of The Night Stalker TV series, this time as a film starring Johnny Depp. With his history of foot-dragging on the Ant-Man project it wouldn't be surprising if he delayed it again to work with Depp. At this point I'll believe that Ant-Man is getting made when I'm actually sitting in a movie theater and the opening credits roll.

    I took it to mean it had more to do with Wright's schedule, like he can fit it in next. I don't really see much overlap.

    GOTG - June/July to Sept/Oct
    Ant-Man - Nov - March
    Avengers2 - March - July

    It's tight but not unreasonably so.

    I doubt he has many commitments currently scheduled for mid-late 2014, lol. It's not like there's this really small window in his schedule and then he's unavailable. If he's directing he'll be in the room for post, too.

    I would be beyond surprised if Ant-Man starts filming before next summer.

    Featurefilmcasting.com sent out the casting call last October for a January 2013 (i.e., this month) for shooting to start on Ant-Man. Wright also publicly stated back in September, as reported by Screenrant, that he was ready to begin shooting Ant-Man in London as soon as Thor TDW wrapped.

    And Thor TDW wrapped yesterday.

    So.

    lol ScreenRant, they once wrote an "article" about a post I made on these boards. High journalism. Although if you have a link it'd be appreciated, I don't remember Wright publicly stating any such thing. I remember LatinoReview reporting it was being considered, and I'm sure it was, when Ant-Man was being considered for a 2014 date.

    And Ant-Man is obviously not shooting this month, so I'm not sure what your point is. Featurefilmcasting.com copy/pastes stuff from elsewhere and adds production addresses.

    Here's Featurefilmcasting.com's page back in October 2012...

    http://www.featurefilmcasting.com/s...d-max=2012-11-01T00:00:00-07:00&max-results=2

    On that same page, they also list CATWS casting for shoots beginning on March 1, 2013. Anthony Mackie just told AICN that they would start shooting on April 1; so if featurefilmcasting.com has a margin of error of +/- one month, I'd say their info on Ant-Man is pretty solid. :oldrazz:

    Here's where latinoreview got scoopage that Ant-Man is supposed to "step into Marvel's London production branch once principal photography on 'Thor: The Dark World wraps.'"

    http://latino-review.com/2012/07/30/exclusive-ant-man-gearing-london-thor-2/

    And that came hot on the heels of Simon Pegg tweeting about World's End finishing up and Ant-Man shooting in 2013.

    And yes, all this came before Marvel gave Ant-Man the late 2015 release date, but as of yet, there's no indication that Wright has changed his plans for Ant-Man at all. Maybe we'll hear something from the horse's mouth soon one way or the other, but otherwise, there's more solid evidence that Ant-Man *is* shooting soon than there is evidence against that. Feel free to provide linkage to prove me wrong, though.

    Hasn't more recent news come out that Guardians of the Galaxy is actually going to be shooting in London next after Thor: TDW?

    You answered everything in your own post. This was all talk from July (including Pegg's tweet - EDIT: and including the featurefilmcasting thing, which is from January 2012) when they were considering AM for late 2014. Months later (October) it was announced for late 2015.

    There's no evidence against that...

    ...except for the fact that Wright is currently in post-production on WE and will be for several more months, he isn't shooting a big budget movie in the middle of that.

    ...except for the fact that if AM was filming any time soon we would have had similar reports of casting/auditions & filming locations along with a rough start date like we've been getting from Cap2 & GotG for the past few months.

    ...and except for the fact that there is absolutely no need to shoot a film nearly 2 to 3 years before it's release date, especially when there are 3 other films that need to roll before it.

    No way they're doing Civil War. They don't have the roster in house. Plus, why tease Thanos in Avengers if he's not going to be the next villain?


    That is a SWEET picture of Ultron. I'd punch a toddler to see that on screen.

    The January 2012 date was an obvious misprint, given that their article came out in October 2012. *Pretty* sure they meant "January 2013," unless they were going back in time, dontcha think....?



    Yes, I don't honestly think they'll start filming Ant-Man this month. But yes, I honestly believe Pegg and Wright when they said that they're filming this as soon as WE wraps, and as soon as Thor TDW wraps, and that it'll be filmed sometime in 2013.

    Wright already has test footage for the film from last year's SDCC. The script has gone through at least three rewrites that I can count, and Wright has shown every indication that he's finally ready to roll on this. And I'd be willing to bet a shiny silver dollar that Feige has been pressuring him to get it done in time for at least some kind of Hank/Janet precursor in Avengers 2.

    Hank and Janet are crucial characters to the Avengers. Before summer of 2012, Wright could probably afford to drag his heels on this and make a film that doesn't even have ties to the MCU, let alone Avengers. After Avengers became the third biggest blockbuster of all time --- ALL TIME, Kanye --- the rules on Ant-Man have changed in a major way.

    The MMU will never be big enough for Civil War.

    That post is kinda old, i hope they don't go for Civil War so soon.

    Yeah, it's what originally sold me out in wanting him as villain for Avengers 2

    Maybe not the MMU, but the MCU can be.

    He's notorious for ruining things.

    Remember when he had Rulk beat up Odinforce Thor? Odin Force Thor. He claimed to not know Thor was powered up -_-
