Over at USA Today, they did a little feature on the Avengers movie, and while most of it is old news (Tony Stark at the end of The Incredible Hulk, Nick Fury at the end of Iron Man, who they are, what this means, etc.), there was one new item for fans to chew on. Jon Favreau revealed the Avengers line-up Marvel was currently toying with: "The ones Marvel is talking about now are Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Ant-Man and Iron Man. I would love to see that." (And no, he hasn't been confirmed as The Avengers director. The possibility isn't even brought up in this article.)

Of course, what this means for Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish's Ant-Man movie is anyone's guess. Marvel's goal is to get The Avengers in theatres by 2011, by which point Thor and Captain America will have gotten their solo origin movies. But will Ant-Man have gotten his? Wright is busy with Scott Pilgrim, which is due to be released in 2009. Could he get Ant-Man off the ground in time for him to join Earth's mightiest heroes? So many questions!
