Joss Whedon Reveals that the Wasp Almost Appeared in The Avengers

In a recent screening of The Avengers at the Director's Guild of America Headquarters in LA, director Joss Whedon has admitted that Janet Van Dyne aka The Wasp almost appeared in the Avengers:

"There was a little bit of time when we thought we might not actually get Scarlett [Johansson]," he said, adding that the solution was to including Wasp instead.

"There was a very Wasp-y draft that I wrote - but it was way too Wasp-y. Because I was like, ‘She adorable! I’m just going to write her!’"

Whedon also admitted that he wanted another villain to appear beside Loki, but the studio managed to shoot him down. Whedon declined to reveal which villain he had in mind, in order to prevent conflicts if the villain appears in another Marvel movie.
