Much like the Iron Man 3 halt in production because of Tony Starks’ bum ankle, this isn’t the most glamorous of news, but it is news.
The sequel to the mega-hit of the year, The Avengers, has gotten an official release date from Marvel.
Get your calenders ready, but you will have to wait a while. Hit the jump for the official date and statement from the studio.
The film will be directed once again by Joss Whedon and the current team of superheroes are set to return - Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner along with incorporating the stories we will see from Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy and maybe even Ant-Man.
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.
Sounds like The Avengers 2 will also get a subtitle like Thor and Captain America. Get the sharpies and mark those calenders!
