'Avengers 2' Hits Theaters on May 1, 2015Mike Sampson |
Mark your calendars. Disney and Marvel Studios announced today that 'Avengers 2' will officially hit theaters on May 1, 2015. Is it too early to start waiting online?
Just last week it was announced that Joss Whedon would return to write and direct the sequel to 'The Avengers,' the biggest superhero movie of all-time. So now's the perfect time to announce a date and make sure the 2015 summer movie season will be kicked off in grand fashion.
Just earlier this morning, we were speculating about 'Avengers 2' and what we could learn about the film from the little we know about 'Guardians of the Galaxy' (coming in 2014 and Marvel's next non-sequel movie).
It's been widely rumored that the next 'Avengers' movie would follow the Infinity Gauntlet storyline and it will be interesting to see how some of the standalone movies - like 'Captain America 2' and 'Thor 2' - will aim towards that end goal.
In the meanwhile, you at least know what you're doing on April 30, 2015 at 11:59pm and that's cheering wildly as the projector dims the lights on the first midnight screening of 'Avengers 2.' Get ready.
