There have been a wide variety of famous cartoon shows that have been turned into hit movies, such as Spider Man, Super Man, Bat Man, Hulk, and Captain American just to name a few. It is safe to say that most, if not all of these cartoons, have made sensational movies. Some of which have broken movie sale records, like recently the new Bat Man “The Dark Knight Rises”.
So what do you get when you put the well known cartoons together in one film? Well, you get the “Avengers” of course. With the Avengers making its debut in the United States on May 4, 2012 it was a much anticipated release and from experts it did not disappoint. It brought in the most money in an opening weekend than any movie this year. The movie brought in just over $200 million dollars in opening weekend, which was about $40 million more than the popular Bat Man Dark Knight rises. The movie also ranks third All-time for highest grossing film behind only Avatar and Titanic.
Many fans of the Avengers were wondering and wanting there to be a sequel to the original. Well, director Joss Whedon has just confirmed on Tuesday, August 7, 2012 that he will be directing and writing the Avengers II. Whedon who signed an exclusive deal with Marvel Studios through June of 2015, has agreed to do the Avengers II, along with developing a new line of action series for Marvel Television on ABC. Whedon who wrote and directed the first Avengers helped the Disney Studio as a whole boost their overall income from $49 million to just over $300 million according to YAHOO.
Whedon mentioned in a statement that Avengers II characters will be based off of, but not limited to, future Marvel movies “Iron Man III” with an estimated release date of May, 2013,”Thor: The Dark World” with an estimated release date of November, 2013 and “Captain American II” with an estimated released date of April, 2014. Marvel also says that they want to somehow include “Ant-Man” and “The Guardians of the Galaxy” for an August 2014 target as their last set of movies before the big release of Avengers II which they want to finish by 2015.
Even though it will be years from now before Avengers II comes out, Comic fans around the world seem to be excited to at least know there will be a sequel.
