Marvel is Missing Two Avengers in First Avengers Movie

Avengers Movie Poster
With the Avengers movie coming out May 4, those who are familiar with the comics are wondering where the other two Avengers are, since they are not in this movie.

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.

5 Reasons to Watch American Pickers on the History Channel


Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz of American Pickers


5 Reasons to Watch American Pickers on the History Channel:
  1. Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz don’t take advantage of people. They offer a fair price to people they deal with.
  2.  Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz have an awesome job. They get to travel all over the U.S. to find rare items on the backroads of America.
  3. Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz are passionate about what they do. You can visibly see their excitement when they find an unusual item that they’ve gotta have.
  4. Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz love to meet new people and hear stories about the pieces they buy. They have such an awesome job!
  5. Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz are everyday guys. They have a job that they love, which makes it almost not a job. They have found their calling in life, and that is inspiring.

I enjoy watching American Pickers on the History Channel. Not only is it entertaining, but I learn new ways to negotiate and make offers from watching their show.

Celebrities like Jack White and William Shatner are featured in episodes of American Pickers. But the people Mike and Frank find off the beaten path can be strange, odd, and even bizarre. That's what really makes the show interesting.

If you haven’t seen American Pickers, I recommend you go to the official website here, and check out an episode.
