'The Avengers' sequel rolls in February 2014
The Avengers which is also known as Avengers Assemble, is the third highest grossing of all time and made a staggering $1.5 billion worldwide. It was inevitable then that a sequel would be in the works. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, director Joss Whedon hinted at what's in store for the sequel and that it would begin shooting in February 2014, with it's release scheduled for summer 2015.
"We should start shooting I think in February… I didn't think I was going to do the second, but I had an idea for it before I'd figured out the first one. You go into a movie not assuming there's going to be… I've seen plenty of movies that were the first part of the trilogy that never happened and it's terrible. You don't save anything for the trip back. Having said that, though, I did sort of know, 'Well, if they were to come back, I know what's going to happen… It's going to be awful," said the acclaimed director.
Whedon is well-known for making characters go through difficult journeys and killing people off - lets hope he doesn't bump off one of the main characters for shock value.
He previously told MTV, "All of these people have met, so you have that out of the way. Now you can spend your time just digging in -- and by digging in, I mean with a scalpel, to cause pain."
Undoubtedly the sequel will be much bigger than the first one and we can't wait to see what Whedon has in store for us - summer 2015 can't come round quickly enough!
