Walt Disney Studios and Marvel studios have officially announced that the Untitled Avengers sequel will be released on May 1st, 2015! Here's the official statement...
The Walt Disney Studios has announced a release date for Marvel Studios’ sequel to the biggest Super Hero blockbuster and third highest grossing film of all time, Marvel’s The Avengers. Joss Whedon returns to write and direct the UNTITLED MARVEL’S AVENGERS SEQUEL set for release May 1, 2015.
Joss Whedon is officially set to return as the film's director, and Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, and Jeremy Renner are all expected to reprise their superhero roles. Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Guardians of the Galaxy will all lead up to what we see in The Avengers 2, with Thanos possibly being the big bad villain. It's sure to include characters and continue the storylines of many of the films in Marvel's phase 2 plan.
The first movie was so amazing, and I can't wait to see what Whedon plans on coming up with for the sequel!
