Avengers 2 for 2015
It isn't even on Blu-ray yet, but the fine folks at Disney know a sure thing when they see one. Amid the flurry of excitement over Joss Whedon remaining the baby daddy for the series and even further, getting his hands on an Avengers universe based TV series, we've had a range of titles announced to get excited over. There's the "coming soon" lineup...
Iron Man 3 (5/3/13)
Thor: The Dark World (11/8/13)
Captain America: Winter Soldier (4/4/14)
Guardians of the Galaxy (8/1/14)
We suspect Ant Man will be in there somewhere as well. Then there's the "cross your fingers" projects murmured about in back alleys behind comic shops and those seeking the holy "green light" which include...
Big Hero 6 (animated)
Heroes for Hire..or Iron Fist..or Luke Cage...
Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
And surely now that Daredevil has returned to the fold, they'll be looking to reboot the man in red. For good measure we'll add those non Disney/Marvel titles absolutely on the way...
Amazing Spider-Man 2
X-Men: Days of Future Past
as well as non Disney speculated and in some form of pre-production...
And for TV we've got the possibility of...
Cloak and Dagger
AKA Jessica Jones
And so long as this next announcement is on the table, all of the above with have a healthy, roaring fire to curl up next to for added traction whenever executives meet to green light projects...
The Walt Disney Studios has announced a release date for Marvel Studios’ sequel to the biggest Super Hero blockbuster and third highest grossing film of all time, Marvel’s The Avengers. Joss Whedon returns to write and direct the UNTITLED MARVEL’S AVENGERS SEQUEL set for release May 1, 2015.
Let us celebrate the conquest of the geek in a world where Joss Whedon is king. Amen.
