You can expect The Avengers 2 to wrap up Marvel's Phase Two in May of 2015

The Avengers roughed up 656 banner

Joss Whedon was just signed to write and direct THE AVENGERS 2, a move that firmly cements him at the robustly beating heart of Marvel's Cinematic Universe. This will also include contributing to the crafting of all other Marvel films leading up to THE AVENGERS 2 as well as the recently announced TV collaboration with ABC set in the Avengers universe (IRON MAN 3 probably excluded as it is already deep in production).

And now, according to an official statement from Marvel provided to ScreenRant, we have a more precise timeline for Joss Whedon's current contract commitment which allows for a relatively easy deduction as to just when AVENGERS 2 is going to drop. 

The statement reads: “Joss Whedon has signed an exclusive deal with Marvel Studios for film and television through the end of June 2015.”  Considering the very successful release date used by THE AVENGERS of May 4th, combined with general common sense about the release window for big deal summer blockbusters, it seems pretty safe to say that you'll be able to see AVENGERS 2 come to a theater near you on some as-yet unspecified date in May of 2015.   And no, pre-order tickets aren't on sale yet.  You can always check back tomorrow though.

Here's a recap of specific dates we do know:

IRON MAN 3: May 3rd, 2013
THOR: THE DARK WORLD: November 8th, 2013
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER: April 4th, 2014
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: August 1st, 2014

And maybe ANT MAN sometime in 2014 as well, depending on how production on Edgar Wright's THE WORLD'S END goes this fall.

Loki, I must say: you're looking mighty fine as you handle that staff.

now that Avengers is wrapped up...

Marvel needs to get an impressive legal team together and get the rights to major heroes back. I know that FOX will try something underhanded like making T'Challa appear in the next X-Men movie and claim The Black Panther as their property. That's what happened to Wade Wilson. If Marvel isn't careful they might lose half of Avengers2 because of 6degrees of separation.

Yes. Marvel needs to cram half a dozen films into production at once. That's the path to quality.

Wait, where's that SHIELD movie??

With Fury, Black Widow & Hawkeye? IMO they are the only characters (specially Fury and Hawkeye) who needed to be fleshed out more in Avengers. I really hoped they'd go with that Shield movie so that we'd understand their motivations and backstories a little more clearly to continue in the future. Now I'm a bit sad :(

I second another HULK with Ruffallo.

They said they would do 2 movies a year, I'd like it most if they pushed back Avengers 2 to July and had Ant-Man in April.

That way Ant-Man can be included into the Avengers... And all will be good.

This is how I see things going with The Avengers and future Marvel movies. The Avengers 2 will be darker, with at least one major character dying (not a SHIELD' agent), two or more villains, and better than its predecessor in both story and box-office. Phase III will consist of Captain America 3, Thor 3, Black Panther?, and some other risky hero (Daredevil, if Marvel gets the rights back in October). The only thing I'm hoping for with The Avengers 2 is Thanos not being the main villain, he's

The only thing I'm hoping for with The Avengers 2 is Thanos not being the main villain, he's the team's greatest foe so he should be saved for the final (?) movie. Unless they decide to take a Civil War approach.

a civil war approach would only work if Marvel were to get the rights of Spiderman and Xmen back as they we're all major players in the Civil War.

More importantly, nobody yet established in the movie universe has a secret identity to register.
