Disney has just announced the official release date for the sequel to their box office smash success Marvel superhero movie, Avengers, which is tentatively titled Avengers 2. The official release date provided via a new teaser poster is May 1, 2015. Another piece of good news regarding Avengers 2 is that fan favorite Joss Whedon will be returning to the director’s seat.
