Movie News: Avengers 2 Gets a Release Date

August 16, 2012

While a lot of news concerning the Marvel Universe has been bandied about the past couple of months, one bit that remained somewhat uncertain was when the biggest movie of 2012 (and most other years), The Avengers, would see a sequel.

Today, however, Disney has officially announced when we would see Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and Hulk together again on the big screen: May 1, 2015.

With writer/director Joss Whedon signed on for Avengers 2 and all principal cast members also in tow, fans are sure to get the sequel they deserve.

But what happens between now and then? Hulk aside, the rest of the team will see yet another adventure with Iron Man and Thor seeing action in 2013 and Captain America returning in 2014. Another lesser known Marvel team, the Guardians of the Galaxy, will also get a cosmic action film in 2014 that will reportedly tie directly into Avengers 2.

If you missed The Avengers earlier this summer you will have a chance to catch them on DIRECTV September 25th!
