With “The Avengers” breaking box-office records this past weekend, a sequel is inevitable. But even including the after credits scene, there are still many characters that can be added or swapped into the current team, as well as a slew of villains waiting in the wings for their shot at some Hollywood fame. Here is my list of the top five Heroes and Villains that should appear in “The Avengers” sequels. Also, I am not discounting the after credits scene, but I think a build towards that confrontation should happen in the background, maybe as part of “Thor 2” (scheduled for November 15, 2013), and then a recap for the beginning of “The Avengers 3”. “The Avengers 2” should have a threat closer to home in my opinion, as we just did the space invasion thing in the first movie.
– Editor’s Note: as of this writing, a sequel has, indeed, been announced by Marvel/Disney.
