One of the coolest parts of "Marvel's the Avengers" had to be seeing the stars of disparate Marvel films finally sharing the screen together. I remember applause breaks pretty much every time a pairing happened or skirmish started. The intermingling makes these movies fun. Now Marvel is slowly building out their cinematic world, populating it with as many extraordinary people as the comic universe that spawned it.
Since the sequel won't be able to deliver on the some of the same thrills now that Thor and the Hulk have finally met, it would make sense for Joss Whedon and company to pull other supporting characters out of their corners of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and plop them into the middle of the Avengers. Don Cheadle's already said there are talks going on regarding increasing War Machine's profile, and I think that'd be a great idea. Here are five characters that I'd like to see assemble alongside the Avengers in 2015.
