The new “Avengers 2″ movie release date has officially been confirmed, as “Iron Man 3″ has seen its filming go on hold. The new superhero movie will be assembled and released in early May of 2015, with details scarce right now, since this film is a bit under three years away.
According to ComicBookMovie.com, the new Avengers film is scheduled for release on May 1, 2015. Joss Whedon will return as the film’s writer and director for an “untitled Marvel’s Avengers sequel.” The previous film featuring Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, and Thor, has become the third highest grossing film of all time, so it was to be expected that at least one sequel would follow. It wouldn’t be surprising if several more come after the second one.
The Comic Book website is telling fans not to expect any major news on the sequel for several years. However, “Avengers 2″ spoilers will probably be obtained from three other Marvel films that should tie-in to the sequel. They are “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Thor: The Dark World,” and “Iron Man 3.” The latter of these films has currently seen filming suspended as Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr., was injured while on set. It doesn’t appear too serious and shouldn’t jeopardize the release of any of the above films.
