Edgar Wright plans to direct an action film for Marvel Studios with some humorous elements, insisting that Ant-Man will not be a comedy like Fantastic Four or a spoof. The script has been written by Wright and Joe Cornish, who plan to include Henry Pym and Scott Lang as major characters, with Pym as Ant-Man in the 1960s in Tales to Astonish style, and a flashforward to Lang as Ant-Man's successor in modern day.

The Avengers seem to be very closely tied to SHIELD anyway, a government org. I can't see how any of the current roster would have a problem with being registered in the first place. There won't be enough time to establish rouge groups of superheros fucking things up in the other films to justify registration. just not enough history in the films to make me believe that ironman, thor, capt would think splitting up would be a good idea. we just put them together to save the world so why break em up?
once we get more info on the avengers plot i think we'll able to come up with some sweet ideas

They cut a lot of fat from the Thor mythos by eliminating the Donald Blake/magical cane element of the character, and I seriously doubt the movie will have enough time to flesh out these aliens beyond being fodder to throw at the good guys, so I doubt we'll see BRB.
BUT, if part of Thor's return to Earth early on in the movie involves any discussion about how he'll lose his power if he loses his hammer, or how other worthy people could theoretically wield the hammer -- if it's made explicit at all -- then you know you'll end up seeing some sort of fan-service situation where one of those aliens picks up or catches the hammer and magically gets a suit of armor and a cape for a split second, before he gets clobbered by the Hulk, drops it, and turns back into a regular old drone. Whedon won't be able to pass that up.
