Two pretty big rumors regarding The Avengers 2 are whipping around the Web today, so we figured they were worth a look. The first one seems most plausible. It concerns the possible inclusion of the Black Panther in the sequel and the hint comes from the chairman of South Africa’s Cape Town Film Studios. He said Marvel has been in contact about filming the Joss Whedon sequel there.
The second rumor is that Hawkeye could be recast. Jeremy Renner played the character in Thor as well as The Avengers, but citing a lack of activity in Phase Two and his negative comments about his role in The Avengers, one source believes the character could become the next War Machine or Hulk.

Late last week, before Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was officially picked up by ABC, a viral video was discovered.

Agent Coulson’s fate in Marvel’s The Avengers was the emotional center of the movie. It was also a huge disappointment. The event certainly helped motivate the team to assemble and save the world, but it also meant we probably wouldn’t see Clark Gregg‘s fantastic character again.
Of course, that changed last year when Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed Gregg would reprise the role in the ABC pilot Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., co-written and directed by Joss Whedon. But exactly how was that going to work? Did Thor use some Asgardian magic? Did Tony Stark create a special arc reactor? Did Bruce Banner blast him with gamma radiation? None of the above. A source has revealed to /Film how Whedon and company plan to bring the character back for the ABC show and you can read it below. Read More »

The description doesn’t reveal a whole lot about the plot that we didn’t already know, but it does describe the Agents (played by Clark Gregg, Brett Dalton, Ming-Na Wen, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, and Chloe Bennet) in slightly more detail. Hit the jump to keep reading.
