Wasting no time after the $100+ million opening weekend earning for Iron Man, Marvel Entertainment has announced its planned date for the Iron sequel: April 30, 2010. It was already well established that Iron Man would be a rounded out trilogy of films, all starring Robert Downey Jr and, as far as I know, helmed by director Jon Favreau. After thoroughly enjoying the first movie this weekend I’m anxious to get my hands on the rest of them.
Marvel didn’t stop there either as they announced the plans to have their first Thor movie hit the following month for June 4, 2010. Then the next summer, 2011, we’ll get Captain America’s big screen adventure in May and The Avengers in July. Stock up now though for those films because Marvel is planning a hiatus in between:
“Because Marvel believes that the summer is the optimal time to launch a new property, the company will not release a self produced film in 2009,” the company said.
Kinda surprising that they didn’t plan that a little better to keep things paced out. Maybe they’re hoping to avoid any overlaps with DC comics that summer. Not sure.
