A release date for The Avengers 2
has allegedly been scheduled for May 2015.
Director Joss Whedon recently signed on to return
to write and helm the highly-anticipated follow-up.
A source told MTV News
has tentatively slated the sequel for 2015, adding that Whedon already has an idea for The Avengers 2
"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]," the insider said.
"In terms of the time frame, I think that it is well in the works," the source continued. "It looks like the release date might be May 1, 2015, but that can change depending on people's schedules.
"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 Avengers opened to a record-breaking $200 million
at the US box office this past May.
