Marvel Sets Release Dates For 'Avengers,' 'Thor,' 'Iron Man 2'
Marvel plans 'Avengers' summer for 2011 with two-pic cycle
Zap2It.com

May 5 2008

Basking in the glow of the $100-plus-million domestic opening for "Iron Man," Marvel announced an upcoming schedule that includes a July 2011 release date for the long-awaited "The Avengers."

With "Iron Man," Marvel's first self-produced feature, already over $200 million worldwide in only five days of release, the company can now turn its attentions to the release of "The Incredible Hulk" later this summer and "Punisher: War Zone" in December.

While 20th Century Fox is producing the Marvel-affiliated "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" for release on May 1, 2009, Marvel Studios will sit out 2009, prepping for what will be an extremely busy following few years.

Marvel Studios said Monday (May 5) that "Iron Man 2" will hit theaters on April 30, 2010, though it's unclear which parts of the original's creative team will return. Then Marvel hopes to release "Thor," from director Matthew Vaughan ("Stardust"), on July 4, 2010.

The company has then set aside 2011 as an "Avengers"-themed summer. Leading off is "The First Avenger: Captain America," set for May 6, 2011. A yet-to-be-specified July 2011 is expected for "The Avengers," a superhero all-star pic set up after the closing credits of "Iron Man."

As one might expect, all titles and release dates are subject to change.

---

Ambitious plans. A lot can happen between now and 2010-2011. The Hulk and Punisher movies could suck, for instance. But Iron Man's DVD sales will carry Marvel through the holidays and into 2009. Me, I'll look forward to these crazy Marvel movies down the road and focus my interest on Iron Man 2. 2010 seems like forever already.

Calling the Captain America movie "The First Avenger: Captain America" is partially to link to the Avengers movie but is also to offset the fear of anti-USA sentiment in the overseas market.

They're setting up Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Cap for the Avengers, but there seem to be no plans for an Ant-Man/Giant-Man and Wasp movie. Which is for the best.

If you check out the IMDB listing for The Incredible Hulk, it lists an appearance of Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark.

Interesting....

As long as Stan Lee keeps making cameos.....

Enjoy the good times, because I'd have to imagine that the entire comic book adaptation genre will officially peak with the Avengers movie. I mean, where can you really go from there?

An Avengers movie starring all the heroes from their own movies is like some kind o childhood dream come true. I just wish DC could've gone the same route with the JLA movie.

More Avengers movies?

I don't think running out of material will be a problem for comic movies for a long, long time.

The majority of the fans think that Spiderman and X-Men peaked at number 2 and number 3 sucked, so I'm not sure Avengers will be much different. In fact, movies in general don't usually have a good second sequel, even having one good sequel is rare. I just hope we get to see Hawkeye on the big screen at some point.

Also, am I the only one that thinks Iron Man 2, Captain America and Avengers could be awesome but Thor is a disaster waiting to happen?

Movie series in which part 3 was as good or better than the previous entries: Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, the Star Wars prequels. Anything else ever?

Oh my no, please don't put MMBT in the same hemisphere as The Road Warrior. Please?

Just a few I thought of that may be as good...Pirates 3: At World's End, Lethal Weapon 3, Rush Hour 3, Saw 3, and Back to the Future 3.

Star Wars: Episode III was looking to be the best of the three until Vader's dramatic "NOOOOOOOOOO!!!" took it down about a hundred notches, putting it below "Attack of the Clones" in my eyes.

Now Rocky III...there's a three-quel that matches up to its predecessors.

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was awesome and I am crossing my fingers in knots for the fourth.

I though Part II was because a few seasons ago, Cartman was waiting for another game system (PSP?) and thought getting online before school would be enough time.
