Batman joins forces with a new hero who’s as dangerous as she is beautiful. When members of a secret order turn up dead and tortured in Gotham City’s Chinatown district, I-Ching informs Batman that he fears an ancient relic is the target. Batman connects this case to that of a missing satellite architect. With few clues to go by and the stakes getting higher, Batman races to locate the surviving members of the order before it’s too late.
7. & 6. Wasp and Ant Man
We’re grouping them together because one without the other is kind of lame, but they’re both integral parts of the team. They don’t have to be stars… hell, they don’t even have to be in costume. But they must be there. Even if they only make brief cameos as Janet Van Dyne (the team’s wardrobe consultant) and Hank Pym (research scientist for Stark Enterprises), you can’t do the Avengers without two of the founding members.
And you gotta have Hank and Janet if you’re gonna have Ultron. And even if he isn’t in the first movie, sooner or later you gotta have Ultron.
Because Hawkeye is awesome. Because guys who stand side-by-side with gods, monsters, walking A-bombs and living legends wielding only a bow and arrow have got bigger cojones than the pair the Hulk is sportin’. Also because somebody has to give Captain America an earful–and Hawkeye could be some great comic relief. Realistically, he’s better suited to turn up in the sequel than the first flick, but if ol’ Clint Barton ended up on the roster in the 2012, you won’t hear us complain.
4. Scarlet Witch
Avengers Mansion is going to look like something of a sausage factory rather than a superhero hangout. To break up the boys’ club atmosphere, we suggest adding a sexy sorceress to the team. Not only is Scarlet Witch a classic Avenger, she’s got cool powers, is smokin’ hot and in the event that Marvel/Disney ever wrests the rights to the X-Men franchise away from Fox, she also happens to be Magneto’s daughter, a fact that could be used for an eventual Avengers/X-Men crossover movie.
Yes, we’re thinking that far ahead. This is a wish list. We’re geeks. This is what we do.
Hank Pym begat Ultron and Ultron begat the Vision. We won’t get into what the Vision begat because that whole Scarlet Witch having sex-with-an-android thing still creeps us out. But the Vision is another one of those characters that immediately comes to mind when the word “Avengers” is spoken. Like Hawkeye, he’s probably better left for the sequel, but perhaps he could be hinted at in the first one? A scene in Hank Pym’s laboratory showcasing several projects he is working on including a couple of androids: one with a familiar green and yellow paint scheme. It could just be a nice Easter egg for fans similar to Cap’s shield sitting on Iron Man’s workbench.
2. Black Panther
He’s sort of like Tony Stark, but without the armor and the attitude. Oh yeah, and he’s also the king of the incredibly advanced African nation of Wakanda. Yeah, that’s Black Panther: he’s a badass. He’s also been an esteemed member of the Avengers, the Defenders and the Fantastic Four and we think he’d be a perfect fit in the Avengers movie.
It would be interesting to see Tony Stark and T’Challa treated as teammates and competitors in this movie: A friendly rivalry with sort of an “anything you can do, I can do without armor” vibe to it.
Yeah, we mentioned him earlier in the “we know for sure these guys will be in the movie” part of the article, but since the ever-churning rumor mill continues to refer to Hulk as a maybe, we want to reiterate our point: it’s not the Avengers without the Hulk. You can say the movie was a flop, you can say Ed Norton was hard to work with; we don’t care. We don’t even care if Norton is in the movie or not–we just want the Hulk.
Whether the Avengers form in order to take the Hulk down only to find that he is just a pawn in a villain’s game or they all just meet for tea and crumpets, one thing is for certain: when the Avengers assemble, ol’ jade jaws had better be assemblin’ with them.
