The Avengers to assemble a sequel!

The Avengers will assemble for a second time. In news that is surprising to no one, Disney has announced that they are moving forward with a sequel to the record-breaking box office smash, The Avengers. The decision likely wasn’t a difficult one to make. This past weekend the blockbuster made history with the biggest opening weekend of all-time ($207 million) and has now grossed almost four times its $200 million budget worldwide. “[The Avengers’ success] is a great illustration of why we like Marvel so much,” CEO Bob Iger said, according to E!. He also announced plans for Avengers-inspired attractions at their Disney theme parks. The Avengers follows a team of Marvel’s greatest superheroes — Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans), The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and The Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) — as they band together to save the Earth from destruction. ~Kyle Sharp

    In recent years, Disney/Marvel has really executed well. I’m excited for all the next installments of their established franchises, including the new Spider-Man reboot.

    Next characters needs to be Ant-man and Wasp,so Hank Pym will create Vision and of course Ultron. New faces/subs members can be Black Panther,Scarlet Witch,Wonder Man and She Hulk.
