Marvel doesn't have a good track record with making trilogies and sequels. They seem to mess up at least one movie in there. I don't know if they will be able to keep the same feel that was in the first one.

The X-Men, spiderman, Fantastic Four and Elektra films were produced by other companies. Marvel's first movie was Iron Man. The closest film there one could call a failure was The Incredible Hulk.

I'm not. Marvel hasn't let me down yet. I've loved all the MCU movies even Iron Man 2, which apparently people think is the worse thing ever. I'm also interested in seeing their new properties that are coming out. (Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man, and Doctor Strange) Really like the fact that Marvel is taking chances on characters that the general public probably never heard of before, that show off its universe in completely different ways. (Space, Science, Magic) If we were talking about FOX or Sony then yeah I'd be worried.

@John Valentine: Well I don't care about it that much haha. About 10 percent of my brain cares.

@jayskee: I personally thought Pepper and Tony had no chemistry anymore, and Tony was getting kind of annoying as he was to me in The Avengers.

The first Avengers movie was essentially a giant sequel. It'll be fine.

Pssh with Whedon at the realm Avengers 2 will be fine. Joss' plan for a smaller scale, personal signal will give the Avengers time for character exposition though this can't be done if Thanos is the big bad. It's the Justice League film that I'm losing sleep over.

Well I still think that Justice League movie is a ways off realistically so get some sleep. As for the Avengers I just hope they handle the infinity gauntlet well if that's what they're going with. We shall see.

I'm more worried about the Solo titles diminishing the greatness of the main Avengers movie. The solos did a good just leading up to Avengers, I'd rather them not do solos like Thor Cap or Iron Man movies and concentrate more focally on making another great Avengers film.

Also the fact that Marc Webb hinted that Amazing Spider-man was set in the Avengers universe. Marvel Studio's even acknowledged that Amazing Spider-man could be in the same universe as well. Him appearing in the Avengers is no longer far fetched at all.

Personally, I did not love the Avengers film. It was enjoyable but not "OMFG BEST SUPERHERO FILM EVER" like I've heard a lot of fans say. I can think of a few that are much better (The Dark Knight, Spider-Man 2, Superman 1 and 2). Some people even go as far as saying it's the best film ever made...

However, I have high hopes that the 2nd film will be an improvement and hopefully it won't be another Iron Man film like the 1st.

Not very concerned. I have enjoyed every single movie Marvel has put out that I know of. Some more than others of course, but enjoyed none the less.

Whether it will be as good as the original is up to anyone's opinion, but I am certain it will make a lot of money on the box office.

@Shark_Repellent_Bat_Spray: I know right. It definitely doesn't deserve an Oscar except for maybe best action or something like that. Especially with all the hype that was created it was kind of dissapointing because I like you know intense stuff things that have me on the edge of my seat. The Avengers was just a nice family film.

I am a little worried. Heck I get nervous when anything comes out with a sequel because it can be great or not great and it can either continue to make a series or franchise better or it can break it.

Well it was never going to be Best Picture material or anything! I was extremely happy when it wasn't nominated.

The thing I really disliked about the Avengers was how most of the film revolved around Iron Man. Iron Man helps Cap with Loki when Cap fails, Iron Man goes after Thor, Iron Man makes all the annoying/arrogant comments, Iron Man repairs the helicarrier (With some help from a soldier who isn't the best at shooting), Iron Man confronts Loki without his armor and then makes some more annoying comments. Iron Man is also the one who directs the missile away from New York and then Iron Man falls back to earth (somehow) and then Iron Man is unfortunately alive at the end.

It might as well been called "Iron Man and The Avengers" or "Iron Man and friends"

Disney has no problem making trilogies though, so it'll be fine.

@Shark_Repellent_Bat_Spray: Yeah Iron Man was annoying. After the movie Iron Man, he's really arrogant I don't even want to see Iron man 3 because of it. His sacrifice was pointless because Thor could have done that no problem. The thing that really annoyed me is how he kept hurting Loki.

Yeah, I agree with you 100%! I've already decided that I'm going to be avoiding Iron Man 3, simply because I cannot stand him anymore.

To be honest, I'll walk out of the cinema during the Avengers sequel if it revolves around Iron Man yet again.

I've only ever walked out a few times in my life. One of these times was for a Marvel film (Ghost Rider). But then again, I haven't bothered to see the Marvel films I'm less optimistic about in the cinema.

The only thing I'm worried about for the Avengers sequel is whether they will make it a little too cheesy or not - it'll need the same tone as the first film.

I was surprised how well it was executed. I thought that he would only be able to include one scenario. Either Loki controlling Hulk would take up the whole movie or his Chitauri invasion did. I'm pleased he included both.
