Could ‘Marvel’s The Avengers 2’ Contain A New Line Up of Superheroes?

Joss Whedon recently told attendees of a special screening of The Avengers, for The Directors Guild of America, that he had alternate drafts for The Avengers. Whedon then went on to explain his interpretation of The Avengerscomics, and the interchanging characters on the team.

“I used to read ‘The Avengers’ and part of the ethos of the team was that it changed their lineup every month,” he continues. “Their 150th issue was just a bunch of faces. ‘Who will be in the team now?!’ We had the first issue as a poster in the offices. Now that I’m working on the sequel I said, ‘Let’s put the second issue up there! Let’s change it up a little bit!’ The second issue is ‘Introducing… Giant-Man! And this character! They were already changing it up after one issue. That’s what they always do.”

Could this be a hint at what we might see for The Avengers 2? Whedon also mentioned during the Q&A that he had a draft for The Avengers that included The Wasp, Janet Van Dyne, which was eventually cut from the final script entirely.

“There was a very Waspy draft that I wrote. But it was way too Waspy. I was like, ‘She’s adorable! I’m just going to watch her!’”

Will fans be excited to see new Avengers in the upcoming 2015 release? Or will fans be disappointed or angered to see one or two of their favorite Avengers out of the mix for The Avengers 2. I know a certain WNA leader that would be quite upset to see Hawkeye not return for the second film. Speculate at will. I’m sure Marvel head Kevin Feige will have a heavy say on who will be back and who they would be willing to replace.

What are your thoughts on a possible change to the Avenger team?
