The Avengers aren’t just Captain America, Hulk, Thor, and Iron Man – there’s so much more to the group. Including honorary members, there have actually been 130 heroes in Earth’s mightiest team over the years. That’s a tremendously rich seam of characters to mine for the films. It’s no surprise, then, that fans (myself included) are curious about which characters will be included in future movies. And, indeed, which characters won’t be.
Without a doubt, the next few years are going to see a lot of great Marvel Comics characters being translated onto the big and small screens, and that’s just fantastic. What’s less fantastic is the thought that there are a whole host of truly great Avengers that audiences most likely will NEVER see, for the most unfair and unreasonable of reasons. The absences of these irreplaceable characters mean the cinematic version of the Avengers may never feel quite right to long-time comic book readers.
