Marvel's The Avengers is the third-highest grossing movie of all time, and it’s the rare superhero movie that managed to please hardcore comic-book fans and mainstream viewers alike. So yes, it’s safe to say that a whole lot of people are interested in learning everything they can about its upcoming sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Since the film’s title was announced at Comic-Con last year, we’ve learned a few things about theAvengers sequel. Joss Whedon, who masterminded The Avengers, will return as writer and director for Age of Ultron, and the rosters of superheroes from the original is also slated to return. But beyond those bare details, much of the film is still shrouded in mystery. What do we know aboutAvengers: Age of Ultron? A guide:
1. Avengers: Age of Ultron will hit theaters in May 2015 May 1, 2015, to be exact. That’s a few weeks after Fast & Furious 7, and a few months before the release of the summer’s other two big superhero movies: Fantastic Four, which will reboot the popular comic-book franchise, and Marvel's Ant-Man.
