Just as the first Thor movie led directly to the events in The Avengers, it looks like for the next phase, Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be the film that leads Marvel directly into the events of Avengers 2, or so say the screenwriters. What do they know?
While I personally really liked The Amazing Spider-Man, and would even call it my favorite Spider-Man movie ever, it couldn’t hold a candle to The Dark Knight Rises or The Avengers in terms of sheer scale. Kevin Smith, normally much more of a DC guy, recently explained why out of the this year’s two summer comic book movie juggernauts, he likes The Avengers more.
Joss Whedon had already mentioned he wanted to put The Wasp in The Avengers, but there wasn’t really room. We do know that in Avengers 2, there will be Ant Man, who is getting his own movie next summer, and where there’s Ant Man, there’s got to be The Wasp. So where does she come in? Probably in Iron Man 3.
