Write it down, folks! Walt Disney Studios officially confirmed the release date for Marvel’s The Avengers sequel and I’m already jonesing for my ticket.
Written and directed by Joss Whedon, the first movie is currently the third highest grossing film of all time. Much speculation has circled around the 2015 opening date, but now for the official news:
“SEQUEL TO MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS TO HIT THEATERS MAY 1, 2015
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.”
Of course, this means fans will be ravenous to spot Easter eggs, teasers, hints, and winks in the solo movies (Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as well as Guardians of the Galaxy), eventually leading up to Avengers 2.
