Now, there have been many rumors these past few weeks. Very major rumors. Spider-man reboot. Deadpool confirmation. Civil War story line. Secret War story line. Fantastic Four shut down. And, the subject of today's story, a whole new Avengers team for Avengers 3.
Now speculations have been going around for a long time but it's been looking more and more likely that this could happen. All we need is a cast of characters. (Since I love making lists because they are easy and fun)
Black Widow, played by Scarlett Johansson
This one is a no brainer. She hasn't had a solo movie but this opens up so many doors for her future. She has already had a major effect on the heroes of the Avengers and I doubt she doesn't want to miss any of the action. Black Widow is a skilled assassin, spy, and soldier. She uses multiple gadgets.
Hawkeye, played by Jeremy Renner
Again, a no brainer. He also hasn't had a solo movie (but recently signed on for one). Also, with the amount of backstory he had in The Avengers (2012) and Thor (2011) he better be in this. It would be his genuine pleasure. Hawkeye is an expert marksman and uses his own bow with multiple trick arrows.
Quicksilver, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson
This one is imminent. He will premiere in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) and is almost required to be in Avengers 3. Also, it would add to the cool, Secret Avengers thing that Marvel might shoot for. Quicksilver is a super-speedster.
Scarlet Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen
Where there is Quicksilver, there is the Witch. When making an Avengers movie. You need to keep the originals in. Her being one of them. Scarlet Witch can fly, has reality altering powers, can shoot energy from her hands, telepathy, and telekinesis.
Vision, played by Paul Bettany
Ok, it is rumored Vision will appear in the last act of Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015). While it may be backstory, people will still want to see more and more of him. Even though we will miss JARVIS a little bit. The movie version of Vision is rumored to be able to change his density (intangibility) and obviously can fly. He would also have access to the world knowledge via the network.
Captain America, played by Sebastian Stan
Notice no Chris Evans? Captain America 3 is definitely going to kill him off and Bucky is the obvious first choice to pass the mantle. This would be the perfect time to introduce the Winter Captain. Bucky is a skilled assassin, super strength, durability, speed, stamina and has a metal arm.
Daredevil, played by Charlie Cox
The TV show is coming up on Netflix next year (coincidentally, around the same time as Avengers: Age of Ultron). Everybody will want to see more of the dark and gritty hero of Hell's Kitchen. Daredevil is a skilled martial artist and has enhanced senses that help him know what's going on around him better than if he were able to see. He also has a billy club.
Iron Fist, played by Zac Efron (unofficial)
On the streets of New York, we would meet Iron Fist. A man who learns K'un L'un and how to channel his Chi to use the Iron Fist. He would join the Defenders and help out the Avengers in Avengers 3.
Luke Cage, played by Terry Crews (unofficial)
Luke Cage is another confirmed Netflix show. Where ever there is Iron Fist or Daredevil, he is there to back them up. Luke Cage is super durable.
Jessica Jones, played by Scarlett Byrne (unofficial)
Luke and Jessica are married. Luke and Jessica have a kid. Luke and Jessica together forever. Beat up super villains forever. With her on the team, it would add a new aspect of female, street-level, vigilantism. Jessica Jones has super strength, durability, flight, and a resistance to telepathy.
Spider-Woman, played by Elizabeth Henstridge (unofficial)
This would be great. Especially with Agent Simmons switching sides from SHIELD to HYDRA. She would eventually gain powers and maybe rebel and become, the Spider-Woman. Spider Woman has super strength, speed, stamina, durability, agility, reflexes, hearing, immunity, wall-crawling, venom blasts, fear pheromone secretion, and self-propelled flight.
Falcon, played by Anthony Mackie
With the type of espionage team I'm building here, we would want to see more Falcon. Why is he not in Avengers: Age of Ultron? The world may never know. Falcon is skilled soldier, has dual uzi's, and a jet-pack/wingsuit for flying.
War Machine, played by Don Cheadle
Now, this would only happen if War Machine survives Age of Ultron. But we need our technology guy. Especially since we saw a little bit of him in Iron Man 2 (2010) and very little of him in Iron Man 3 (2013). War Machine has an iron suit like Iron Mans only with a signature shoulder-mounted death machine gun.
Sentry, played by Scott Porter (unofficial)
Sentry could possibly be one of the most powerful superman ever. He would be a good replacement for Thor in Avengers 3. Sentry has a chemically advanced physiology, molecular manipulation, super strength, speed, stamina, agility, reflexes, senses, flight, he has no physical weakness, photokinesis (light projection, energy blasts), prionic abilities to hold his over powered self, healing factor (like he needs it), and self resurrection. He also lives 2 seconds in the future. Basically he is God, Superman, and Super Sayan 8. Of course, as they did Scarlet Witch, they will power him down a bit.
Captain Marvel, played by Rachel Nichols (unofficial)
The highly anticipated, highly teased, yet unannounced Captain Marvel needs to make it into Avengers 3 to stop the cosmic threat of Thanos. I do hope it's not Ms Marvel. She has superhuman strength, speed, stamina, durability, agility, reflexes, flight, able to predict her opponents next move (flash precognition), toxin/poison immunity, concussive blasts from hands, minor molecular control, energy absorption, experienced spy, expert pilot, expert combatant, multilingual (English, Russian, unrevealed Earth language, Kree, Shi'ar, and passable Rajaki), anda talented journalist.
Black Panther, played by Chadwick Boseman (unofficial)
Wakanda is a definite yes in [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035). Wakanda's ruler is T'Challa. T'Challa is the Black Panther. Black Panther is an Avenger. Chadwick Boseman teased a flight to Wakanda on Twitter. His powers include: he knows all the knowledge and wisdom of the past Black Panthers, superhuman acute senses, strength, speed, stamina, durability, agility, reflexes. He has a genius level intellect, master martial artist, weapons master, master acrobat, expert marksman, master tactician, expert hunter and tracker, omnilingual (Earth languages), master inventor. He has highly influential connections and has immense political power as he is King of Wakanda, the country that produces the metal that is used for Captain America's shield.
Doctor Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch (unofficial)
Doctor Strange has been confirmed to start shooting very soon. But it hasn't been confirmed yet (Hiny hint #NYCC #MARVEL)? There have been many actors passing around the role. But Doctor Strange would be a great addition to the Avengers roster. All of Strange's powers are magic based. He is intangible. He can shoot mystic bolts. He can fly via his Cloak of Levitation. He can transmutate (able to change his form into anything). He has telekinesis and teleportation and telepathy. He can produce protective shields. His lifespan has been extended and he has a fearlessness factor. Time manipulation, dimensional traveling, able to conjure objects, and many other spells that do different things. He can use divine sources to make power (he can use the power of his alternate versions). He can use black magic. He has astral projection, hypnotism, illusions, invisibility, universal awareness, and many other psychic abilities. He is an expert surgeon and neurosurgeon (world renowned). Expert magical knowledge and occulitist. He is also skilled at martial arts. He is the Sorcerer Supreme.
Scott Lang, played by Paul Rudd
Since Ant-Man comes out Fall of 2015, we can expect to see him in The Avengers as he is a founding member (why he is not in The Avengers (2012)). Scott Lang uses Pym Particles to shrink to any size (proportionally). Also, when shrunk he has the proportional strength and speed as if he were normal sized, although this is increased when he grows. Ant-Mans helmet also allows him to control ants. Also, he sometimes has wrist gauntlets that let him launch disruptor blasts.
Nova, played by Jensen Ackles (unofficial)
With the Nova Corps being around and so many people want to destroy Xandar, it will ultimately happen and the Corps will be no more except for one. He has super human strength, speed, stamina, accuracy, durability, agility, reflexes, regenerative healing factor, flight, energy generation, contains all of Xandars knowledge in his mind while keeping him sane. This helps him: download opponents profiles to his mind, detects energy surges (telepathy, teleportation, telekinesis, energy blasts, etc), can control his body while he sleeps so he gains rest but still works, can hack into almost any information network, analyze attackers on the molecular level, can detect energy based powered people, can transmit his voice and image onto satellites to broadcast, resistance to telepathy and telekinesis. He is also a skilled combatant.
Penance, played by Sam Claflin (unofficial)
Penance would be good after a Hulk catastrophe and maybe Hulk would beon Sakaar. So then we would have Speedball in his darker form. Penance's owers are fueled by his pain and others pain. He has a kinetic energy field and can produce a hyperkinetic shockwave. The inside of his suit is filled with spikes to give him constant pain.
Wonder Man, played by Karl Urban or Matt LeBlanc (unofficial)
It ain't no Avengers without Wonder Man. He doesn't need too much backstory, just being a member would be awesome. He can turn himself into an ionic energy form. He also has super strength, speed, stamina, durability, reflexes, and hearing. He has laser vision (energy vision). He can also fly. He is immortal and can project energy and can alter his size. He has a gifted intellect, he is an actor, he is a skilled stuntman, and an expert combatant.
The Wasp, played by Evangeline Lily
With Ant-Man coming up, The Wasp is to co-star in the movie. As an honorary Avenger, it's only right that she joins too. Her powers include self size reduction and addition, flight via bug wings, she can shoot energy from her hands as "Wasp Stings". She can communicate with insects and control them. She is a fashion designer, multilingual, and a skilled combatant.
Star-Lord, played by Chris Pratt
When the big bad Thanos comes down, the Guardians are sure to follow with Peter following right behind them. He is a human/spartoi which gives him peak human strength, durability, agility, stamina, mental process, and longevity. He is an expert marksman, martial artist, tactician and strategist, pilot, and universal knowledge. He has a very large arsenal of gadgets and a universal translator implant on his neck. He also has a brain memory chip and eye implants that let him see through all energy spectrums. He also has rocket boots that help him fly and two Kree elemental guns.
Groot, voiced by Vin Diesel
I AM GROOT. Groot has cellular regeneration much like a tree does. He also has super strength and durability. He also has a genius intellect yet he can only speak 3 (4) words in the same order everytime. He is also to make himself grow tendrils and do many other things that many plants do.
Rocket, voiced by Bradley Cooper
Rocket decided to join the Guardians because he doesn't have that long of a lifespan anyways. So he will follow. Rocket has a raccoon physiology (who would have guessed). He has the same abilities a raccoon on Earth does except he walks on 2 feet. Enhanced senses and agility. He is a master tactician, marksman, weapons specialist, strategist, martial artist, and pilot. He is also an inventor and has assorted laser weapons.
Drax the Destroyer, played by Dave Bautista
Drax has already been confirmed for Avengers 3. With him being the one to cap Thanos, he is a must. Super human strength, stamina, durability, and senses. He also has an accelerated healing factor and an aura that enhances him and gives him many unknown powers. He also has cosmic awareness.
Gamora, played by Zoe Saldana
The Gamora-Peter relationship had a little screen time but if they continue, they could have a very funny relationship on Earth. She has multiple bionic implants that give her super human strength, speed, stamina, agility, reflexes, durability, and a regenerative healing factor. She is a gymnast, hand-to-hand combatant, able to use all known weaponry, and knows stealth techniques. Tactician and strategist. Expert marksman. She also has a sword called "Godslayer".
Adam Warlock, played by Jared Padelicki (unofficial)
Adam is the key to defeating Thanos. Therefore we need Adam. After all, he is present in the MCU via the cocoon in The Collectors collection. Adam has master over quantum magic. He can spell craft, manipulate souls through the Soul Gem, energy manipulation, matter manipulation, teleportation, telekinesis, healing, energy construct (able to build anything from energy). He also has superhuman strength, speed, agility, reflexes, flight, and durability. He is also immortal. He is telepathic and has cosmic awareness. He can use this for space warps and reality warp resistance. He can also evolve through evolutionary cocoons.
Quasar, played by Garrett Hedlund (unofficial)
We need more Guardians. Quasar is the right one for the job. Quasars body is made of pure quantum energy. He can turn his body into any shape he can imagine or explosively disperse his form. He has Quantum Bands that enhance his strength. He is also a skilled combatant.
Angela, played by Blake Lively (unofficial)
With Thor and Loki, you need the long-lost sister, Angela. She could be an awesome asset (no dirty pun intended) to the Guardians and the Avengers. She has superhuman strength, durability, and stamina. An enhanced healing factor and longevity of an Asgardian as she is Odins daughter. She has flight and self sustenance so she can survive in the vacuum of space.
Moondragon, played by Amber Heard (unofficial)
With Drax's back story, we could have an extremely good Drax and Moon Dragon relationship and more reason to hate Thanos. She is the most powerful human born telepath ever to breathe. She also has telekinesis and can turn into a space dragon that is super strong, durable, and capable of faster than light flying without air. She is a genius scientist, master martial artist, pilot, and almost has full control over her nervous system.
