Got this from I09
Kevin Feige talked about the interlaced comic book plots that are tied to Iron Man 2, spurred by the Nick Fury cameo by Samuel L. Jackson, and Tony Starks cameo in the Hulk movie.
Do you know what heroes are we going to be putting in The Avengers? How close are you to discovering who the core characters are?
I think we know. I think it’s going to be Iron Man and Thor, Captain America and Nick Fury. I think it’s safe to assume that there will be some members of the Hulk universe in the film as well. In terms of the additional I think Black Widow, sure. The SHIELD organization for sure. What’s exciting, for me, about The Avengers movie is seeing those four characters interact with each other. I think anywhere from the first issues of The Avengers to Civil War the dynamic between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark is just awesome, it’s fascinating. It brings out sides in others that won’t be brought out in the other franchises. Going forward with the mix is a whole other thing, I think it will be cool. So to pile on another 15 or 10, frankly more than four would be too many.
Is the Hulk in it?
Zak Penn is outlining it as we speak, so we’ll see.
Are you going to test potential Captain America people against Robert knowing they’ll have work together at some point?
We’ve already been doing a little bit of that, to an extent. We’re certainly casting all of the actors knowing that they need to carry, whether they are the good guy or the bad guy or a small part, not only their own franchise but playing an important part in the Avengers franchise. We are definitely keeping that in mind as we are casting.
Has Chris Hemsworth [Thor] said that he would met with Robert?
Oh yes, that was the first meeting of Thor and Tony Stark, it was pretty cool.
My first thought was ‘Where’s Hawkeye, Ant-Man and Wasp?’ but that’s just me.
