Over the past few months, news for The Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron has been jam-packed with casting news, easter eggs and other surprises, especially those teasing upcoming films. So, what I am going to do is that I am going to talk about the news and give my opinions on the news. Beware, possible spoilers!!! If you don't want the film ruined, I suggest you turn back now!! For those who want to know the news, let's get started.
First off, is the return of Sam Wilson AKA The Falcon. He was introduced in the 2014 film [Captain America: The Winter Soldier](movie:254973)r played by Anthony Mackie. Since filming for Avengers 2 commenced, there were rumors on the internet that led to Anthony Mackie returning as The Falcon. However, nothing was confirmed at the time until i have seen the new poster yesterday where Mackie was seen at the bottom in the credits. So, now i can safely say that Falcon will be making an appearance in the film.
Loki and Heimdall return from [Thor: The Dark World](movie:206462), where they will possibly appear in the post credit scene that would lead into the events of Thor: Ragnarok
War Machine returns from the Iron Man Films, with Don Cheadle reprising his role. He is seen in the Avengers Tower where our heroes try to lift Thor's hammer. Due to the new toys coming out, there is a War machine toy, hinting to the fact that he may join The Avengers to defeat Ultron.
Andy Serkis has been confirmed to play Ulysses Klaw, an enemy of [Black Panther](movie:9047). I think it is great casting. In the comics, he kills Black Panther's father, leaving Black panther to avenge his death by fighting Klaw. Klaw will probably make another appearance in the Black panther movie, due to be released in 2018.
Then we have the mystery woman, seen in the pool. There is another woman behind Thor when he gets electrocuted. I don't know whether it is the same woman seen in the pool or they could be 2 different people. There have been many speculations as to who she, or they when you think about it, might be. The possibilities include Moondragon, mantis (who could appear in Guardians Of the Galaxy 2, Thor: Ragnarok or possibly another marvel movie.), Enchantress or some woman from Wakanda, where the Avengers go to in the film.
Unfortunately, we will not be getting Pepper Potts in the film. Gwyneth Paltrow never received a call to come back and play Pepper again. However there may be opportunities for Pepper in the future. Fingers crossed for Captain America: Civil War as it was rumored that she may be in the film.
Finally, we have the possibility of a different line-up by the end of the film after the Avengers may go their separate ways like they did in the first film. Captain America will still be the leader of course. There are a number of possible members who could fill the line-up but may also end up appearing as cameos that lead to their debut in Captain America: Civil War. Possible members include Hawkeye, Black Widow, Falcon, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, Vision and a possible appearance by Black Panther and Doctor Strange
