We still don't know who the enemy is (my money on Skrulls), I don't believe it's Loki
I already ship Natasha/Loki
Steve has a gun, all is right with the world
Don't like how they just attached Hulk at the end - is he in the film for just 3 seconds?

It's not very surprising, really. And seeing how one's a long standing fan-favorite that has become nearly synonymous with the Avengers as a whole, and the other is best known as "the token chick with the asshole spouse," I can't say I'm particularity choked up about it either.

The visibility thing is arguable.

I think Wasp is probably more known to the movie going public at large as a secondary member of the Avengers than as a primary love interest for another slightly less obscure superhero.

It seems like a more iconic role, even if it's smaller in terms of total number of appearances in the actual comic books.

And, honestly, I'm "particularly choked up about it" exactly for that reason: Wasp is going to be introduced to the medium of film as a mandatory love interest to Ant Man. It could have been a good point to do something with the character.

Look, just because Marvel can't figure out how to market a fashion designer who turns into a fairy and fights crime (gee, who'd be a good audience for that? Is that a crowd of teen girls frantically cramming their money into the hands of people who write well-dressed supernatural creatures fighting bad guys? Well, nothing to do with us, let's just kill off this Jan chick, obviously useless) doesn't make the character worthless. They adapted her into Giant Girl for Marvel Adventures and she was a fan favourite. She was well-liked as Wasp in the Earth's Mightiest Heroes cartoon. And she's their only female founding member, she should get some goddamn respect.
