You can expect The Avengers 2 to wrap up Marvel's Phase Two in May of 2015
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:
Loki, I must say: you're looking mighty fine as you handle that staff.
