Seeing as how The Avengers raked in over $200.5 million dollars this weekend, we’re not surprised to hear that Disney already has Avengers 2 in development, according to Disney CEO Bob Iger. That got us thinking…sure, maybe the first Avengers was over two hours long, but what plot points or characters we want in the sequel that they couldn’t cram into the first one? Without trying to give too many spoilers, here are some things we want desperately to see in an Avengers sequel. That being said, if you want to see the movie with absolutely no knowledge of the plot…why didn’t you see it on opening weekend? Get out of here! Get!
- A Natalie Portman cameo: Guys, you cannot dangle a Chris Hemsworth/Portman romance in front of our panting faces, then not have his lady love actually appear on screen. The first Avengers film clocked in at 2 hours and 22 minutes long; Avengers 2 should be the same length, with 22 of those minutes being a passionate love-making scene.
- More female characters: We’re glad Cobie Smulders was on screen, holding it down S.H.I.E.L.D.-style while uppoing the lady quotient, but how about introducing some other Avengers women besides Scarlett Johansson‘s Black Widow? How about Mockingbird? Or Sharon Carter? We would also kill for a She-Hulk. Dare to dream, ya’ll!
- An explanation for how Thor got back to Earth: Spoiler Alert! Remember at the end of Thor when the bifrost, the passageway between Earth and Asgard, was irreparably damaged? And we thought Thor might never see Natalie Portman again and we had the hide the fact we were emotionally devastated by Thor? Well, apparently that wasn’t such a big deal, seeing as how Avengers just brushed off the whole problem with one line from Loki. You demigods have some ‘splainin’ to do!
Are there any other loose ends or inter-dimensional love affairs you want cleared up in the sequel? Or are you just glad you’ll be seeing more intergalactic butt-kicking sooner rather than later?
