While fans are waiting for a new action-filled "The Avengers 2" trailer, an old villain from the first movie could be cast as the new villain in the sequel: Justin Hammer.

According to Latinos Post, Hammer actor Sam Rockwell said he wants to reprise his role in "Avengers 2."

"Ah! I was hoping to come back in one of the Avengers films and come after Gwyneth Paltrow, because that's what they set up, that I was going to get revenge on Gwyneth for getting me arrested or something," Rockwell said.  "I could do a Cape Fear thing with Gwyneth. But they've got a lot of mojo in there already, so I don't know if they need another pirate like me in the mix there! [Laughs.] Maybe [Agents of] S.H.I.E.L.D. is the way to go."

This is true though. Many others were thinking if Justin Hammer could be out of jail right now and seeking revenge. And Latinos Post said that the character "could make an appearance down the line, especially since director Joss Whedon has not confirmed the villain of the new film."

While we know that Loki [Tom Hiddleston] will not be the new villain, everyone suspects Thanos. But Whedon could have hinted that Thanos won't come around until "Avengers 3," or the last installment in the series.

"Well, Thanos is more powerful. He is so powerful he is not someone you can just try out and punch him. Like he did in the comics, you want him to threading through the universe and to save the big finale for 'the big finally'. He is definitely a part of what I have got going on," Whedon told DesdeHollywood in an interview in April. "The thing about the Avengers is that they are very powerful but not very stable. So, there will definitely be some people that will shake them up in the next installment."

Speaking of villain, new rumors suggest that "Fast and Furious 6" star Vin Diesel could play Thanos.

According to, Diesel hinted that he would have a role in the highly anticipated "Avengers" sequel on Facebook.

"P.S. Marvel has requested a meeting... no idea what for... haha, you probably know better than me," the "Fast and Furious" actor told his Facebook fans.

"The Avengers 2" hits theaters on May 1, 2015. Production starts in March 2014.
