"The Avengers" was a big payoff for Marvel fans largely because that union on screen has been teased so much in earlier Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. From Nick Fury's first appearance in "Iron Man" to Hawkeye's brief cameo in "Thor," we'd been dying to see Earth's mightiest come together on the big screen. And now we can't wait to see it again.
With "The Avengers 2" due in theaters on May 1, 2015, it seems fair to assume that we'll keep seeing some superhero crossovers and cameos in future Marvel movies. In fact, Chris Evans has an idea that would involve him popping up in "Thor: The Dark World."
"[Chris] Hemsworth and I even talked about that. I would love to do a little thing in 'Thor 2,'" Evans told Collider. "It is obviously going to be tricky trying to work out the plot, the reason why I am not there to help him, and why he is not there to help me. But the best thing about Marvel is that, like I said, the movies were so good and we had such a good time making them."
As long as the Hulk gets worked into future films, we'll be happy. But it would be great for Marvel to use this opportunity to show that the superheroes exist in one another's worlds even outside of "The Avengers." Sure, it would make sense to introduce new characters (like, cough, Ant-Man) in cameos before giving them their own film, but toss a Tony Stark or Black Widow nod in there and we'll be happy campers.
Meanwhile, Evans said that there's also a chance we'll see missing Captain America plot lines from "The Avengers" show up in "Captain America: Winter Soldier."
"The most I am looking forward to is exploring a little bit of Steve’s…they had all those deleted scenes with 'The Avengers' because a lot of those scenes are for 'Captain 2,' you know what I mean?" he said. "It was good stuff, but it all felt like that was his story. It is a different movie. With 'The Avengers' there was so much to cram in. So I think making it any longer would have just been exhausting. A lot of that stuff [that was cut] is for 'Captain America 2.'"
Evans elaborated about the forthcoming sequel, "It is him trying to on a personal level adjust to the fact that everyone he knows is gone and the whole Peggy Carter of it all. There are a lot of things that he kind of has to come to terms with. So I don’t know. I am excited to kind of see flashes of the first Captain, if you know what I mean, and to see his memory of what we now know as an audience of who he was."
