Disney's CEO Announces the Obvious: 'Avengers 2' is in the Works
Briefly: This should come as no surprise after that massive $207 million opening weekend Disney/Marvel's The Avengers just had, putting its current worldwide total up to $700 million. Of course they're going to make a sequel, we knew they'd be heading that way anyway, with the hint of a certain villain in the credits. Deadline reports that Disney CEO Bob Iger announced in an earnings call that "the company is developing a sequel." Iger apparently said the movie's success "is a great illustration of why we like Marvel so much." Indeed. There's nothing more than that, and I'm sure that's how Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige wants to keep it for now, as we've got Iron Man 3, Cap 2, Thor 2 and maybe even Ant-Man first. But we will see it.
