Rumors for Marvel’s “The Avengers 3” is pouring in over the last couple of weeks, with fan sites and geek blogs scratching around for more information about the upcoming project. So far we have picked up reports that claim “The Avengers 3” will split it into two parts to capture the epic final battle with Thanos, and we can expect a new team to be assembled by Steve Rogers a.k.a. Captain America. Badass Digest unleashed the scoop last week, and this week they are back with a report suggesting who we can expect to make up the team of superheroes.
At the end of “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, it’s been long rumored that Captain America (Chris Evans) will assemble a new team of Avengers after the destructive battle against the villainous robot. Badass Digest says the new team will include Falcon (Anthony Mackie), War Machine (Don Cheadle), Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). All the mentioned superheroes are rumored to appear in Captain America 3, which is set to “re-shape the Marvel universe.”
Previous reports mentioned that since many contracts are going to expire in Phase Three, Marvel might consider introducing other heroes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The “Guardians of the Galaxy” are already hotly rumored to join the fight against Thanos, with Dave Bautista’s Drax the Destroyer tapped to play a ‘Significant’ Role in ‘Avengers 3′. This makes sense if it ties in with corridor talks suggesting that at the end of ‘Cap 3’, the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be in a tough, dark place, with the heroes scattered and defeated.
In the meantime, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” will be released on May 1, 2015. Robert Downey Jr. will reprise his role as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as The Cap, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. James Spader plays Ultron, Elizabeth Olsen takes on Wanda Maximoff a.k.a Scarlet Witch, Aaron Taylor-Johnson plays Pietro Maximoff a.k.a Quicksilver, and Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
