The Avengers 2 Release Date The Avengers 2 Release Date Confirmed; Will Get New Title

When Disney and Marvel Studios made the official announcement that Joss Whedon signed a three-year exclusive studio to write and direct The Avengers 2, while also helping develop a live-action TV series on ABC, it was very obvious when the sequel to the third-biggest box office success of all-time would come out.

Today, Disney and Marvel Studios have confirmed the date and to no surprise, The Avengers 2 will be coming to theaters May 1, 2015.

Let’s flashback just over one week ago where Disney released the following official statement about the Joss Whedon deal.

Joss Whedon has signed an exclusive deal with Marvel Studios for film and television through the end of June 2015. As part of that deal, Whedon will write and direct Marvel’s The Avengers 2 as well as help develop a new live action series for Marvel Television at ABC.  He will also contribute creatively to the next phase of Marvel’s cinematic universe.

We immediately called out the end-date of this deal as when The Avengers 2 would be coming out, and knowing how all three Iron Man films along with The Avengers opened each respective summer movie season in the first weekend of May, it was a no-brainer that The Avengers 2 - the sequel to the biggest summer film of all-time – would be doing the same on May 1, 2015. Here’s the official announcement:

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.

Each press release seemingly confirms or teases what the next could be about and this one confirms that The Avengers 2 won’t be titled “The Avengers 2.” Just like Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Thor: The Dark World, the film will embrace a subtitle in favor of the numbered system employed by the Iron Man films.

Our other question directly relates to the bigger picture plans of Phase Two. The Avengers represented a fluke year in Marvel Studios’ forward-thinking plans of having at least two theatrical releases per year (The Runaways was initially meant to be the other for this year). With two-three films coming next year, and two confirmed films for 2014, it’s a safe bet that there will be at least one other 2015 release from Marvel Studios and it’d be smart for them to get it out just before The Avengers 2, utilizing a spring release date just as Captain America 2 will be doing in 2014.

Let the speculation begin!

Iron Man 3 releases May 3, 2013, Thor: The Dark World on November 8, 2013, Captain America: The Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014, Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1, 2014 and The Avengers 2 on May 1, 2015.

  1. It should be Avengers: The hero’s unite

    • The title it now has “The Avengers: Age Of Ultron” works just fine, especially considering he’s the main villain in this upcoming film.

  2. put spiderman in this one

    • @Bubba Kelly – If this was 5 years ago I might have agreed with you, but today they don’t need him, not in an ‘Avengers” movie and I’m a Spider-Man fan. Putting Spider-Man, X-Men or Fantastic Four would just be overloading the line up unnecessarily with characters they frankly don’t need. I would rather see fresh faces and characters we haven’t seen before on the big screen like Scarlet Witch, Vision, Quicksilver, Black Panther, Ms. Marvel and Dr. Strange. Obviously with “The Avengers” grossing over 1.5 billion worldwide they certainly didn’t need Spidey, X-Men, FF or any other outside source to join the fray.

  3. i think that avengers: re-assemble is a more suitable title

    • That’s not a bad title, but I love the title ‘Age of Ultron’.

  4. As far as ‘Avengers 3′ goes, assuming Thanos will be the villain I couldn’t imagine a better title than “Avengers: The Infinity Gauntlet” or “Avengers: Rise Of Thanos”. ‘Dawn Of Thanos’ doesn’t sound too bad either.

  5. fantastic

  6. Very nice and wont to watch
