Joss Whedon gave an interview to Marvel.com for their Comic Con Live Stream, and though it's not available yet, Josh Wilding over at ComicBookMovie transcribed it and posted it on their site. Whedon dropped some info about Age of Ultron, the sequel to Avengers:
Hank Pym won't be in the movie. Whedon said they will drop a lot of things from the Age of Ultron comic plot, which is good, because that comic stunk on ice if the ice were made out of frozen dog shit, but which is also bad, because it implies some elements from the comic will be used. Ultron will instead be created by members of the existing team, and we will see several different iterations of Ultron in the movie as it evolves.
Whedon said that Ultron was always planned to be the focus of the sequel, and did not mention Thanos, who everyone assumed was meant to be the focus of the sequel.
Whedon also promised more focus for Hawkeye in the film.
