Well that didn’t take long. One really strong weekend barely over with and Marvel Studios is already announcing a sequel to Iron Man according to the folks at /Film:
Hot off the $100 million opening of Iron Man (nice job Steve!), the ever powerful Marvel Studios opened its war chest up today, revealing the company’s in-house feature roll out through 2011. Here’s what it looks like…
April 30th: Iron Man 2
June 4th: Thor (directed by Matthew Vaughn)
May 6th: The First Avenger: Captain America
July (day N/A): The Avengers
So, two Avengers films in 2011, eh? Unprecedented. DC’s Justice League is bummed. In addition to the line-up above, Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man is still in the planning stages at the studio, and obviously June brings us The Incredible Hulk, followed by Punisher: War Zone in December.
Let’s hope the rest of them are half as good as Iron Man turned out to be.
