'Avengers' Passes $700 Million, Disney Announces Sequel

It’s official – there’s a sequel underway for The Avengers!

Disney CEO Bob Iger made the announcement during a conference call, calling the action flick’s success “a great illustration of why we like Marvel so much.”

The Avengers – co-starring Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, and Tom Hiddleston – smashed its competition at the box office this weekend.

It has earned more than $700 million worldwide in less than two weeks – one of the best showings of all time, THR notes.

    Looking more foward ot Batman. This movie was good, but not as good as the first Iron Man.

    I haven’t seen this movie yet but I really would have thought by now people would be sick of super hero movies.

  • tom

    I love super hero movies. Could watch them all the time. Avengers was pretty good but not the best super hero movie ever made. But solid enough. . Batman looks great and Superman looks pretty good. I am sick of 3d. I think that it takes away from the movie. It is also to dark.

    Please have Tony Stark’s suit malfunction in midair. He is really the most annoying avenger ever!

  • Gis

    The movie’s awesome, it deserves a sequel. Hope it’s even better than the first. There’s no reason to believe it won’t be (for now).
