Obvious News of the Day: ‘Avengers 2’ Officially Underway


Sorry to play Captain Obvious with you, but we thought you might like to know that Disney CEO Bob Iger has officially announced that Marvel Studios is developing a sequel to last weekend’s box office (Hulk) smash, The Avengers . The superhero opus has raked in $700 million so far, and the news comes after the studio giant announced plans for new Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America installments. We probably won’t be seeing a new Avengers feature anytime soon, and there’s still a lot we don’t know. As joyous as it would be to see Joss Whedon return to the series, nothing’s been confirmed at this time, according to Deadline. The studio would be foolish to let the director walk away, so hopefully they’ll do everything in their power to keep him around for a few more years. Share your Avengers 2 hopes and fears below.
