If you want to ensure a good release date, you need to stake it out early, and that certainly seems to be Marvel’s thinking, as they’ve now set a release day for The Avengers 2, amost three years before it will arrive! However it does mean we’ve not got a date for your diary, so when is the movie coming?
Well, here’s the statement from Marvel’s parent company, Disney, ‘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.’
Sadly there’s no more info than that, although with Thor 2, Iron Man 3, Captain America 2 and Guardians Of The Galaxy (and possibly Ant Man) due before them, there’ll certainly be plenty of opportunity to build up to mash-up.
