Paramount has sent us updated (and first time) releases dates for the big Marvel Studios movies coming out over the next three years.

Iron Man 2 has been pushed back one week, Thor has been pushed back a month and a half and we have release dates for Captain America and The Avengers movies.

The Avengers will be released a couple of months after Captain America, lending credence to the idea that Cap’s film may be a cliffhanger resolved in Avengers, which will likely show the formation of the team and their first mission.

Iron Man 2 release date changed:

From: April 30, 2010

To: May 7th, 2010

Thor release date changed:

From June 4th, 2010

To: July 16, 2010

The First Avenger: Captain America release date announced:

May 6, 2011

The Avengers release date announced:

July 15, 2011
