Disney CEO Bob Iger has announced that Marvel has started to plan The Avengers 2. This shouldn’t surprise anyone, since The Avengers just passed over the billion dollar mark.
It’s always good to hear confirmation, but I think just about everyone knew The Avengers 2 was going to happen; it was just a matter of when. It looks like Iron Man 3, Thor 2 and Captain America 2 will probably lead into the film, so expect some tie-ins, despite the news that said they were going to stop doing that.
There’s no way Marvel wouldn’t want to keep everything properly connected, especially with The Avengers’ success. Now they have people interested in the individual characters.
One thing I want to know is will Joss Whedon return to direct?
