Bob Iger the CEO of Disney spoke on the success of The Avengers today. An exact date wasn't given but if I had to call it, I would say we will see Avengers 2 in 2016. They will probably follow the same formula, 2013 we will see Iron Man 3, followed by Thor 2, and then Captain America 2. If Disney is smart they will arrive at Joss Whedons house with a dump trunk full of cash to make sure he is back on. Here is what Iger had to say...
"The Avengers isn't just a film," says Iger. "It's
a franchise from our perspective. Obviously, it was helped a lot by the
success of the 'Iron Man' movies and of 'Thor' and 'Captain America'.
From 'The Avengers' we get a chance to make 'Thor 2' and 'Captain
America 2' and 'Iron Man 3' and hopefully another 'Avengers' movie. So
this one film that is immensely successful... is going to get a number
of other films and franchises."
