THE AVENGERS 2 Filming Date

Joss Whedon The Avengers 2 directorJoss Whedon: The Avengers 2 filming date

The Avengers director Joss Whedon has told ET.com that The Avengers 2 will begin filming in February 2014, from a screenplay Whedon himself wrote. The writer-director added that The Avengers 2 plot is rooted on ideas that came to his head before he began working on the (ultimately) billionaire blockbuster.

“I didn't think I was gonna do the second one," Whedon, somewhat curiously, remarked, "but I had an idea for it before I had figured out the first one. You go into a movie not assuming that there's going to be [a sequel]. 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.”

But really, how could anyone, anywhere, at any time actually expect The Avengers to end up as the stand-alone Grand Hotel of Marvel super-heroes?

The Avengers grossed $1.51 billion at the worldwide box office, nearly 60 percent of that amount coming from outside North America. As sequels – especially blow 'em up 3D sequels – tend to perform exceedingly well internationally, expect The Avengers 2 to a) outgross the original b) earn at least two-thirds of its gross at the international box office.

The Avengers 2 release date

The Avengers 2 is scheduled to come out on May 1, 2015. Expected to return for the Avengers sequel are Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Steve Rogers / Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark / Iron Man, Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton / Hawkeye, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner / The Hulk, Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. The Hurt Locker's Anthony Mackie is a possible addition to the Avengers 2 cast, playing Sam Wilson / The Falcon.

For all it's worth, The Avengers won three MTV Movie Awards this past weekend: Movie of the Year, Best Villain (Tom Hiddleston as Loki), and Best Fight.

Joss Whedon movies

Besides his television work (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Dollhouse), Joss Whedon directed the thriller Serenity (2005), a box office disappointment ($38.6 million worldwide according to figures found at Box Office Mojo) starring Nathan Fillion and Gina Torres, and the Shakespearean comedy Much Ado About Nothing (2012), featuring Fillion and The Avengers' Clark Gregg. Next in line is the TV movie Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., starring Gregg as Phil Coulson.
