|Avengers Movie Poster|
The two Avengers missing are: Ant-Man & The Wasp. Of course, they were included on the original Avengers team, and are seen in many Avengers cartoon movies on DVD.
Perhaps it is because Henry Pym, who is Ant-Man, is constantly beating his wife, Janet (The Wasp), in the comics. No, that would be too noble of Hollywood, that can't be it.
It is actually because there is another Marvel movie coming, debuting the Ant-Man. The script for Ant-Man has been in the works, and has been in a holding pattern since Feb. 2007. See the Wikipedia entry here.
And let's not get the original Avengers confused with the New Avengers, which include Wolverine, Spider-Man, Spider-Woman and a few other lesser known superheroes.
Henry Pym has also played the superhero Giant Man, and maybe there just isn't enough room on the silver screen for the rest of the superhero egos to fit in one film.
I just know one thing from Marvel going to the big screen: I am tired of Hollywood messing up comic book movies.
Dr. Henry Pym will not be in Avengers 2, but will have his own standalone movie after Avengers 2.
