            @bane Sounds like a problem I wouldn't mind having :P ScarJo seems down to earth, though, I bet one could hold a conversation with her just fine.

                  Samuel Jackson would be f*cking awesome to meet. However, I'd be bummed over no Scarlett as well, like @Josh.

                      @bane, I read on IGN that Quasar will not be in the film. That does not mean that he won't make an appearance in a sequel, though.

                          Who gives a f*ck about that. C'Mon MovieWeb, I want to see photos, a synopsis, a story plot or something tangible about this film. Oh yea if your gonna hold something like that you gotta have Scarlet in their.

                            So Pennington will be playing a S.H.I.E.L.D agent named Wendell Vaughn, so does that mean hes gonna become Quasar (Wendell Elvis Vaughn) ...
