I am a huge Taskmaster fan, but even without time travel or teleporting Spiral has enough other abilities that she would probably win. I think it would be close and I would LOVE to see Tasky take it, but...

If this is the full cast, I would be totally happy. But I have to wonder if Hawkeye will cameo. He is a SHIELD agent after all.
I don't think so. Black Widow's usually more involved with Captain America than Hawkeye. Maybe they're planning a solo movie.
Or maybe he's the corpse in the trailer.
I was thinking that, but it seemed unlikely for him to be insignificant enough to not appear in the trailers, but die in the movie. Could be Fury or Bucky... or some unnamed agent.
If it is Hawkeye, maybe they want it to be a surprise? If it's Fury, then I don't think he's really dead. He's the type to fake his own death to go off the grid.
At 2:08, Black Widow, Cap and Maria Hill looking over someone's covered corpse?
My thoughts are Fury, especially judging from Hill's body language and the way he's all over the trailer.
I agree with keeping the roster small. It fits their purpose.
Why all the hate for Beast? He's been an X-Man, an Avenger, and was Xavier's "heir" to the Infinity Gem. Given his intellect, experiences, connections, and the fact that he's one of my all time favorite characters (okay, the last one isn't a solid reason lol) I think he's a great fit.
Magneto or Cyclops would be hard considering their current status as terrorists, but I am intrigued by the thought of Magneto being a member of the Illuminati. I could have bought Charles leaving him the gem too.
I don't know if tears would come or not, but I could see it as a possibility for either Stan Lee or Betty White.
