Despite the fact that “The Avengers 2” doesn’t even have a script and that Marvel hasn’t completely nailed down their Phase 2 plans yet, there are already rumors about the new characters that would appear in the film, and even about who will play them. So grab some salt and take a seat while we talk about stuff that’s not even close to happening.

British actor/writer/director Noel Clarke has ascended to the big leagues the old-fashioned way; by working his ass off. Having started off in the cast of long-running sitcom "Auf Wiedersehen, Pet," he broke out on-camera as Mickey Smith, boyfriend of companion Rose Tyler in the 2005 revival of "Doctor Who," dropping in and out of the show and its spin-offs across the next five years. But simultaneously, he was also carving out a screen career, penning and starring in the gritty drama "Kidulthood" in 2006, and then directing its follow-up, "Adulthood," in 2008, after the film became a surprise hit.

Noel Clarke is a prolific actor and director, probably still best known to British audiences and internationally for a stint on “Doctor Who” and his youth dramas “Kidulthood” and “Adulthood,” though he’s appeared across a diverse array of genres and worked with under-appreciated British directors like Philip Ridley and Neil Marshall in fare like “Heartless” and “Centurion”. While his early directorial efforts might not aspire to the sociological exactitude of say, Andrea Arnold or Shane Meadows or the artistry of work being done by director Ben Wheatley ("Down Terrace") or Eran Creevy’s (“Shifty”), his films attempt to deal with social issues of class and race in what could have been an otherwise patronizing and pejoratively ‘urban’ working-class environment.
