With the highly anticipated sequel to the Avengers is not currently in production there is still a lot of specualtion as to what it will be about and who will be in it this time. I have heard rumors about Emily Blunt coming in to play Ms. Marvel (which would be awesome by the way) but the weirdest I've hear was the one about Jean-Claude Van Damme.
Grwoing up I think every teenage kid loved Van Damme, I know I did. He made his appearance in Expendables 2 (which I still haven't seen) and now he has expressed interest in Avengers 2. Of course, who wouldn't want a part in this awesome sequel?
He only mentions is though, because Thor AKA Chris Hemsworth suggested he would like to have Van Damme in the movie. Here is the story courtesy of iwatchstuff.com
"Well, it would be fun to play one of these types of amazing comic book characters again," Van Damme wrote--but not without prompt, as he also made clear, "I read that Chris Hemsworth would like me to costar in "The Avengers 2" movie!"
Which, obviously, no, that's not really the case--though it is slightly more true than you might imagine. LatinoReview points to this ten-month-old USA Today story, where The Avengers cast was asked who they'd add to the team. Chris Evans said Salma Hayek (she has yet to formally respond via Facebook), while Hemsworth did, in fact, say "Van Damme," specifying: "from Bloodsport. A big kick to the alien head."
So will we see the high kicking action star in the next movie? Probably not but the 13yr old boy in us can hope.
