We already knew that Joss Whedon would be back to write and direct the Avengers sequel, but now The Avengers 2 has been given an Actual Release Date. Which means that it is most definitely ON!
The sequel to the global hit comic book film will hit cinemas Stateside on 1 May 2015. And presumably UK cinemas shortly afterwards.
The film will follow a slew of other comic book sequels and trequels, including Iron Man 3 (on 3 May 2013), Thor: The Dark World (on 8 November 2013) and Captain America: The Winter Soldier (on 4 April 2014).
