Can’t wait for the next installment of “The Avengers?” That might be a problem, since “The Avengers 2” now has a release date, and that date is rather far away. Thanks to a whole lot of other movie-making, Marvel Studios will not release the film until May 1, 2015.
Considering that we have yet to see a Black Widow or Hawkeye movie of any kind — not to mention a Hulk film with Mark Ruffalo — there’s a chance that “Avengers 2” could end up arriving even later.
The only silver lining to any of this for “Avengers” fans may be that Joss Whedon is already attached to write and direct the sequel. With Whedon on board, we at least know “The Avengers 2” is going to be good, whenever it finally arrives.
