Director Joss Whedon hasd signed a three-year contract with Marvel Studios to write and direct the sequel of the movie The Avengers.
A source told MTV News that Marvel has tentatively slated the sequel for 2015, adding that Whedon already has an idea for The Avengers 2.
According to an insider,
“Marvel has a very set agenda of what they want to do, they are already kind of ahead of the game [on the sequel] because they’ve got the guy that did it before doing it again, and something tells me Joss already has the template [for the film].”
The source continued,
“In terms of the time frame, I think that it is well in the works.
“It looks like the release date might be May 1, 2015, but that can change depending on people’s schedules.
“The beauty of The Avengers is that you’ve got so many people in this that, even during the shoot if someone has to do another film, they can just focus on [other characters].”
The Avengers 2 will release in the summer of 2015.
