Iron Man, Marvel's first self-produced film, made an amazing $100+ million over the weekend. And it's made over $200 million worldwide already in only five days of being released!!
So, it's no surprise that Iron Man 2 is already in the works.
It even has a release date!
Iron Man 2 is set tentatively scheduled to be released on April 30, 2010.
Talk about moving quickly!
And Marvel's movie, titled The Avengers, even has a release date. It's set to come out in July 2011. We smell a 4th of July release date happening.
Things are looking well for Marvel, who's also set to release The Incredible Hulk later this summer, along with Punisher: War Zone in December.
It appears 2011 will mark an "Avengers"-themed summer for Marvel. It's The First Avenger: Captain America is set to be release on May 6, 2011, followed of course by the July release of The Avengers.
