Disney Announces That THE AVENGERS 2 Is In Development

There aren't a lot of details right now, but Deadline has revealed that Disney and Marvel Studios are now moving ahead with a sequel to box office hit, The Avengers. This isn't exactly a surprise considering the fact that it has broken record after record at the domestic and international box offices over the past two weeks and was met with almost universal acclaim from critics.

As for WHEN we'll see the sequel, start placing your bets now! 2014 seems far too soon, while 2015 or 2016 seems most likely.
