Please, use established characters, both heroes and villians, and let's get the story rolling.

It oviously looks like they are going for a combo of The Ultimate version mixed with the 616.  That's obvious with the recent pic of Thor, and the black Sam Jackson version of Nick Fury.  Putting Black Widow in Iron Man 2 was a nice way of sneaking in a member without having to waist precious time on a backstory.  People not familiar with the Avengers are not going to care who the hell the Black Widow is anyway.  All they know is she's good at martial arts, a memeber of Shield, and is smoking hot.  Bring in Hawkeye because what a movie be without a member of the team being a little nutty and talking shit to Cap.  All he needs is a five minute intro with a back story.  Use the Ultimate Hawkeye version to validate his uncanny ability.  He has bionic eyes and that enables him to be deadly with anything in his hand.  I would like to see it approached like Lord of the Rings or the final Pirates of the Carribean in the aspect of it being 2 or 3 movie making 1 large story.  Like a comic book "To Be Continued"  make it grand, this way it's not felt like everything is being condensed into 2 or 3 hours.  We all know that having this many characters  2 or 3 hours just isn't enough time.

Hulk is obviously in this.  Why else would Downey be in the end of Hulk.  Have the Avengers come together to fight him, then Bruce gets him control and saves the day at the end like he did in the Grand Theft Auto storyline.  What villians can be used tho.  Even tho he's gonna be in Thor I can picture Loki giving A.I. to Ultron so there is a tech feel for the Iron Man being there.  Can't use Dr Doom he's in FF

I was recently watching Justified on FX and I think Timothy Olyphant would make a good Hawkeye.

The Incredible Hulk would have been a major blockbuster if has been the first one and not that Angie Lee crapfest.  I'm one of the people who waited for DVD before I saw it and wish I would have see it on the big screen. 

Speaking of Incredible Hulk don't forget the Leader got started in that movie which a lot of people forget.  I wouldn't mind seeing him as the mastermind behind the Avengers ordeal.  Always like those intelligent bad guys and of course you have to give him some muscle bad guys as well for the action shots.

Hold on  for a minute.  Let me make this suggestion.  If I were the studio heads behind the project , I would assemble the writers and artists that made the Avengers great.  Let these creators work with the script writers to hash out the story.  It would make more sense to have these people involved .  What kills these kind of movies is that they hire people who have very little to no knowledge of the histories of these characters.  A very simple proposal.  The most sucessful tandems that have worked on these characters over the years should be brought in as script supervisors and consultants.  With that being said, the film should be close to three hours long.  That way it lends itself to set up a coherent story and develop the relationships between the characters.  Pacing  is everything, using common sense and getting the dialogue right means a great deal to fans. Please, no phony dialogue.  Although they took some liberties in the Spiderman film it all worked.  The reboot of Star Trek had some faults but worked as a whole.  The first two Blade films worked.  I might also add that sticking to cannon is not a bad thing.  Don't worry about non-comic fans. If they aren't familiar with characters or plot points don't sweat it.  I think it would be great to do a big budget comic film and not worry about non-fans. Try it ..... it will work.

 No mention of the "purple headed master of the shaft"?  Guess we'll be seeing him on the sequel.
