New Bendis interview up at Newsarama.com

While he didn't say who was going to be a Revenger during the 2 part annual crossover, he did mention the team is made up of former Avengers who agree with Simon and have the power to take on the current teams

SOOOOO...what classic Avengers do you think Bendis is going ruin for us oldschoolers? Heres a list of heroes NOT on a current team.

Scarlet Witch-in Limbo until Children's Crusade is done
Swordsman-dead MAYBE back after Chaos War
Hercules-Don't think he'll agree and is depowered
Moondragon-off in space somewheres
Hellcat-probable candidate
Monica Rambeau-looks like she might be on Avengers after Fear Itself
Black Panther-hasn't really worked with the Bendis teams
Starfox-Too funlovin and off in space
Black Knight-could be
Yellowjacket 2-see Swordsman
Deathcry/Lifecray-see Swordsman
Quasar-busy with Annhiliators
Namor-I could see him but he is busy elsewhere
Crystal-could see her being used BUT she's busy in Kree space
Jack of Hearts-just returned and makes sense
Firestar-nah....not in her to do this
Hulk (Banner)-yup!
She-Hulk (Walters)-nope
She-Hulk (Ross)-not an Avenger but can see her helping Simon
US Agent-could see it but he's working with Rogers and is in wheelchair
Living Lightning-nah
Human Torch (Hammond)-hmmmmmmm
Reed and Sue Richards-nah
D-Man-LOVE Dennis but Bendis treats him like a joke
Madame Web (Spider-Woman II)-maaaaybe
3D Man-meh
Silverclaw-hopefully we have seen the last of her

I'm sure I'm missing some cats but whatcha think?

Well...first off, let us not assume they'll be ruined. There's a few old A-teamers that could only be helped by panel time, even if its not the most ideal of situations.

Swordsman...eh. I'd rather see Phil Jarvert & Maggie come back from whatever reality Kurt sent them to, myself. Magdelene would work, being a formerly crazy ex-gatherer.

I dunno about Hellcat being a candidate. I've not read much on her since her resurrection, but she always seemed to cling to the Avengerhood pretty strongly. Wasn't the conflict between her trying to be the noble hero while Daimon was the nutty spawn of satan what ultimately drove her nuts and led to her death to begin with?

Dane? Really? Nah. Maybe the Harras version, but not the one we've seen in M-13.

Jack of Hearts...that I could see. Sort of a "Why didn't you try to save me?!" kick. But that'd make him really evil, and if the tow-line right now is that the Revengers aren't really a VILLAIN team, it doesn't work.

I disagree about Angelica, though. Firestar retired rather than play hero after she saw what happened in Stanford. If ANYONE beyond simon could make a case for banning or working against organized hero teams, I think she could.

As much as I'd love to see Gilgamesh again...explain to me the logic. (Granted, this is the Eternal they killed, so logic is odd when it comes to Gigglemess, but still...I don't see it.)

Madame Web? I thought Julia was doing the Arachne thing?

Truthfully, the one that sprang to mind first was the Sandman. If there was money in it, I'd imagine he'd be all for it.
