The news was short and sweet from Disney publicity: we’ve got a release date for The Avengers 2, or Marvel’s The Avengers 2, or Untitled Marvel’s Avengers Sequel, or whatever you want to call it. Take it away, Disney publicity:
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.
The film will open exactly three years to the day of the first movie’s release. The first weekend in May is ideal real estate for a comic book movie release since it’s also Free Comic Book Day, and Marvel’s got it booked solid now for the next three years with Iron Man 3 next year, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in 2014 and now The Avengers 2 in 2015. Make mine Marvel? I guess you don’t have any choice now.
