There is so much excitement and anticipation for the next Avengers movie and with so many characters in the Marvel universe the big question is “Who will be some of the new Avengers?” By listening to the rumors and using what we know about the characters already introduced, here is a list of some of the most probably characters that might become Avengers in Avengers 2.
1. “Ant-Man” – We are definitely going to see Ant-Man in the Avengers coming up as there is already test footage for his own movie. The question is to whether it will be by the time Avengers 2 rolls around or will he come after. Real name Henry Pym is a scientist who has developed a way to shrink and grow in size using “Pym particles”.
2. “The Wasp” – Real name Janet Van Dyne also can shrink in size due to “Pym particles” and can grow wings and shoot power blasts from her hands. She eventually becomes Ant-Man’s girlfriend/wife.
3. “Vision” – Real name Victor Shade is an Android that was created by the evil robot Ultron who was created by Henry Pym/Ant-Man. He is a popular character and would make a great addition to the team. It is unknown if this storyline can be filled by the time Avengers 2 comes around.
4. “Black Panther” – Real name T’Challa is a highly talked about character which have had talks in staring in his own movie. He is very intelligent and a skilled fighter. His senses were enhanced due to a special herb. His uniform is made out of vibranium which is what Captain America’s shield is made from.
5. “Dr. Strange” – Real name Dr. Stephen Strange was a real doctor who had his career ended by a car accident. On the search for a cure he became a powerful sorcerer. Though there have been talks about him having his own movie about a year ago, but ramblings have been quiet since. It would be nice to see him in the upcoming movie, but we might have to wait.
6. “War Machine” – Real Name James Rhodes was in Ironman 2 and 3 as a friend to Ironman/Tony Stark. It’s been highly speculated that he might make an appearance as and Avenger in Avengers 2 but no word yet.
7. “Falcon” – Real name Sam Wilson will be taking part in the next Captain America film. He can talk with birds with the use of telepathy and has wings created that are used for flight.
8. “Winter Soldier” – Real name Buck Barnes will be making an appearance in Captain America 2. We might get a glimpse of him in the upcoming Avengers movie as well.
9. “Sub-Mariner” – Rumors swirled that we might have seen the Sub-Mariner/Namor in the first Avengers. He is half-Atlantean who can breathe under water and has super strength, speed, and agility.
10. “Ms. Marvel” – Real name Carol Danvers who was gifted with powers after an explosion from alien technology. There were rumors early in the development stage of Phase 2 that she would be introduced to the Marvel universe.
As for some other the special mentions like Iron Fist, Quicksilver, Scarlett Witch, She-Hulk, Luke Cage, Captain Marvel, Nova, Wonder Man, Spiderman, any one of the X-men it is still up the air for these and many other characters. “Avengers 2” is set to hit theaters in May of 2015. Hopefully your favorites will make the team by that time.
