Marvel's 'The Avengers 2' Set to Arrive May 1st, 2015 - With Thanos?
Briefly: It has been announced and/or confirmed by Deadline that the official release date for Marvel's The Avengers 2 is now set for May 1st, 2015. Only three years to go! Joss Whedon will be writing and directing the sequel to this year's ensemble superhero team-up box office smash. Pretty much exactly what we expected to see, following Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy in the next few years leading up to this (plus maybe Ant-Man?). Can we expect Thanos to be the (really) big, bad villain this time around? Possibly, but like with Loki they're never going to confirm until we're sitting in theaters at midnight on April 30th. Can't wait! Mark it down in the calendar.
