    Basically you take some cues form Dark Avengers maybe, but not so much as them being hired thugs. They all have their own agendas, and they don't really care for each other, yet their mutual hatred of their enemy is where they do their best work.

    Eh, not so big on the Masters appearing in a movie. Atleast not before Ultron or Kang appear.

    They've already somewhat fought a singular villain, it would be a good switch up. They plan on keeping the franchise going for a while via sequels and random spinoffs for a minute, so it won't really matter.

    Okay, here's a scorecard I put together of his Twitter success/failure record so far:

    orange: debunked
    red: unproven, and unsupported by corroborating reports
    yellow: unproven, but supported by corroborating reports
    green: proven




    9 Nov
    Inside News: The Masters of Evil will feature in The Avengers 2.


    1 Nov

    </DIV>30 Oct
    Inside News: Crossbones will have a rivalry with the Winter Soldier, which results in a really epic fight scene.





    </DIV>24 Oct
    Expect a casting announcement very soon. (This one's so vague that it almost counts. "Very soon" could be a week from now, or a year from now. Doesn't mention which movie, of course.)




    </DIV>22 Oct
    @TheDanielWolf You got me brother, but I can only assume that wasn't the entire race. (....huh....?)




    </DIV>19 Oct


    </DIV>Inside News: Currently the word is that Iron Man 3 will feature a mid credits scene AND a post credits scene.




    </DIV>

    </DIV>28 Sep
    Inside News: Remember that the Guardians of the Galaxy banner was only concept art, so that may not be the final roster of the team. (pretty sure Feige said it *was* the final roster. Anyhow, still unproven.)




    </DIV>


    </DIV>27 Sep
    Inside News: Iron Man 3 is currently undergoing a last minute rewrite particularly in the film's third act.




    </DIV>
    Everybody go back and really look at the Guardians of the Galaxy banner, I think you'll find something very intreging. (Could you be a little more vague, Roger...?)

    @SenorNerd I said don't expect him to only be in Avengers 2. (....who?)




    </DIV>25 Sep

    15 Sep
    Inside News: Marvel is hoping for SHIELD to kickstart the MCU in television form. Much like how Iron Man started the MCU in the first place.

    8 Sep
    The numbers will lead you....9876541 (....what?)

    5 Sep
    Inside News: Every villain answers to somebody, even the Winter Soldier. Who better to answer to than a Baron?

    5 Sep
    Inside News: Pepper Potts's role in Iron Man 3 is gonna be full of suprises and unexpected turns. (sure; but intentionally vague here.)

    5 Sep
    Inside News: Marvel Studios has a Black Panther script, but they are having doubts whether or not if the character could hold his own film.

    5 Sep
    Inside News: Chen Lu will not be referred to as Radioactive Man in Iron Man 3.

    2 Sep
    Inside News: Aldrich Killian will be basically be an unwilling pawn of The Mandarin's.

    8 May
    Clark Gregg has a six film contract with Marvel Studios. But he's only been in four: Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, and The Avengers.



    debunked: 5
    unproven and uncorroborated: 18
    unproven, but corroborated: 13
    proven: 3

    3 right out of 39 so far is not exactly a stellar record. Wouldn't you say?

    Feel free to have faith in Oracle Wardell all you want. I'll wait to see if his batting average ever gets past the strikeout range. :oldrazz:

    He posted this three days before the Cap2 casting announcements were made so put this in green.

    He didn't. Not to mention the actual "roster" of the team doesn't mean that characters who were in other incarnations of the team won't appear outside of the core membership.


    He's obviously talking about the Nova ships if you didn't make that connection already, which matches rumors that Nova would appear in the movie.



    He's talking about Thanos I don't know how you missed that especially when you have the original tweet they're talking about in your post. V


    This is pretty ****ing obvious either way so I don't know why you have it in red :/


    **** like this can't be confirmed even when the movies come out/show airs without inside knowledge so why even put it here?

    https://twitter.com/RogerWardell/status/244639389869805568

    All you had to do was look at the tweet thread. It refers to Masters of Evil/Ultron.

    You already put a tweet alluding to the exact same thing in yellow... >_>

    Pretty sure he's referring to rescue armor which has been rumored to dead and all but confirmed...not to mention she looks captured in trailers.

    This is pretty much confirmed...should be in yellow at the very least.

    Once again, pretty much confirmed, should be in yellow.

    This was never debunked...if anything he was right because Hugo has stated he would rather not reappear, which reenforces that no-deal thing. He doesn't necessarily have to be talking about Cap2 here.

    This hasn't been debunked at all and Feige has said Marvel wants to do another Hulk film after A2.

    Well ****ing duh half the stuff his rumors have to deal with aren't releasing for years. What has come to past has been pretty accurate though. And all your color tags were a ***** to get around...

    Please feel free to provide instances where Wardell ever scooped anybody about anything. The *only* few things he ever got right were items that had already been broken/scooped by other sources beforehand, or that were so vague that they could apply to anybody or anything at any time. ("Casting news soon...." About....something. Some time. No ****in' ****, Rog, ya don't say....?:doh:)

    Have fun drinking the Roger Wardell Kool-Aid. I'm going to stick with more credible sources myself. :)

    As for his MOE Tweet specifically: I humbly promise to change my avatar to an "I LOVE JUSTIN BIEBER" picture for a full month if that one turns out to be true. :fhm:

    I'm having a hard time believing the Masters of Evil will be in Avengers 2 ...feel like all the characters wouldnt be devloped enough we don't even know if majority of the orginals will be featured in any of the phase two movies....would be same group from the comics or something new my theory of who would be in would be Thanos as master mind, Zemo, Crossbones..Loki, Echantress, Radioactive man ( if featured)..idk I feel like MoE will work but this film franchise is here for long run and there is no rush to be them in yet..maybe next year or when phase II gets under way, id really have an opinion change, at this time I can see it, just having a hard time beliving it.

    Regards to Roger Wardell , he may or may no be as credible as we believe but hes does bring a lot of great topics to disscuss while we wait for more information about all these marvel movies that are in the process of being made.

    The Masters of Evil would work best as a grand finale, when all of their surviving villains come back to fight. But again, not yet. Avengers 2 has to be Thanos' movie.

    It would seem much more logical to use them in the film after this..I dont know much about them but they seem to be on as big or bigger scale as the alien invasion in the first film...Thanos seems more suitable for a smaller conflict..compared to the master of evil ...also he seems to be have unfinished bussiness with what happen with the first film

    I guess we'll find out if Roger Wardell is for real when Stephanie Szostak's role is revealed. If it's nothing exciting, we can discount him forever. If it ends up being some big substantial character then not so fast.

    Okay. Didn't realize this thread existed. But if there were ever a MoE or, as many have deemed a fitting title "Masters," in the MCU, these are the ones I'd choose.

    Baron Zemo
    Radioactive Man (probably just called "Doctor" or "Dr. Lu/Wu")
    Enchantress (only ever called Amora)
    Executioner

    And their goal would be to use Ultron tech to roundly destroy The Avengers. So the first half of the movie shows those 4 using misdirection and cutthroat tactics to hijack and unleash Ultron. Using Lu/Wu's knowledge of A.I. and Amora's access to the Infinity Gem of Power. Midway through the film, Ultron causes devastation on both sides. Usurping and potentially killing Zemo, breaking Henry Pym's heart, spirit and potentially mental state and leading the Masters in a final confrontation against The Avengers.

    Gives all of The Avengers reason (once again and without the coercion of SHIELD) to gather and respond to a threat believably dangerous enough to require a full team of superheroes.

    Ultron
    Vision
    (Baron Zemo?)
    Radioactive Man
    Enchantress
    Executioner

    vs.

    Captain America
    Iron Man
    Hulk
    Thor
    Hawkeye
    Ant-Man? (depending on mental state)
    Wasp
    Falcon

    Black Widow is not called in, due to her lack of appropriate skill set. This is a personal opinion of course.

    WHAT!? Sorry but how on earth is Black Widow less appropriate than HAWKEYE (Who she beat with ease), FALCON and ANT-MAN!? I whole heartedly disagree sorry.

    She beat Hawkeye in close quarters combat. You can't seriously be arguing that she isn't the weakest current Avenger.

    Good question. If they go the infinity gem route he's looking for the Power Gem. If not, maybe he introduces them all. lol. gah that just sounds corny. My mind is always set in comic book mode. Doesn't always translate properly.

    I am 100% saying that. If she can take down Loki's minions, then what is saying she can't take down Iron Man? Also Hawkeye is so far behind in terms of fighting combat she would probably kill him before he could even take a second breath. I wont go on but you get the picture.
