The Comic and Film giants have already secured the services of writer and director Joss Whedon for the sequel and have now set the release date for May 2015. A Marvel insider told MTV News “Marvel has a very set agenda of what they want to do, they are already kind of ahead of the game [on the sequel] because they’ve got the guy that did it before doing it again, and something tells me Joss already has the template [for the film], in terms of the time frame, I think that it is well in the works. It looks like the release date might be May 1, 2015, but that can change depending on people’s schedules.” The source continued “The beauty of The Avengers is that you’ve got so many people in this that, even during the shoot if someone has to do another film, they can just focus on [other characters].”
The first Avengers movie brought together the Worlds heroes including Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Black Widow and Eagle Eye in order to stop the evil Loki taking over the Earth. Millions flocked to theatres across the World to see it and the movie took a record breaking $200 million on its opening.
