Avengers 2 Scheduled For 2015 Release
It has just been revealed by Marvel Studios that the official release date for the Avengers 2 movie is May 1st 2015.
The super-hero movie sequel is hotly anticipated and rightly so, as the first Avengers movie, which was released in cinemas back in May 2012, is the third highest grossing film of all time, bringing in over $1.46billion.
An all-star cast has already been confirmed for Avengers 2 including the likes of: Robert Downing Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlet Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans, all making a return for the sequel.
Writer and director Joss Whedon will return to work on the ensemble film. It is thought that a template for the storyline has already been developed, and filming will take place over the next three years. Due to the large cast, if actors are busy with other filming schedules at a certain time, shooting can meanwhile go ahead focusing on the other super-hero characters.
Not only will Marvel superhero’s such as Iron Man, The Hulk and Thor return for Avengers 2, Disney have revealed that four more stand alone Marvel character films will be released prior to 2015. These are set to include: Iron Man 3 for a release in May 2013, Thor: The Dark World for a release in November 2013, followed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier with an expected release date of April 2014.
Marvel and Disney are also planning on launching a movie franchise for the Guardians of the Galaxy comic books, although there is currently no director or cast on board for the film, a release date of August 2014 has been set.
