According to Deadline, ‘Avengers 2′ is at the development stage:
This won’t come as a surprise to anyone who sat through the credits of The Avengers, or who simply looked at the film’s record-breaking box office sales this past weekend. Still, fans (and investors) will be glad to hear that Disney CEO Bob Iger just announced that the company is developing a sequel. The film’s success “is a great illustration of why we like Marvel so much.” Demand for Avengers merchandise has been strong, he added.
I’m thrilled about this! By the end of the movie, I knew Disney would have to have to do a sequel. This just made my afternoon! ‘The Avengers’ such an awesome movie and it will get my money again this weekend because I simply have to see it again.
