‘The Avengers’ Smashes Box Office Records, Guarantees Sequel

by Kristina • 1 Comment »Film News, The Avengers

After shattering box office records and debuting with the highest opening weekend gross ($207 million in the U.S. alone), The Avengers has been given the “go” for a sequel. This, according to Disney CEO, Bob Iger.

It’s probably a no-brainer, but a sequel to The Avengers was made official Tuesday by Disney CEO Bob Iger, who made the announcement during a conference call with analysts to discuss quarterly earnings.

Repeating previous announcements made by Marvel Studios, Iger said a third Iron Man and a second Thor are scheduled for 2013 and a sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger is in the works for 2014. He gave no timeline for an Avengers sequel.

Iger boasted that Avengers “shattered domestic box-office records with a $207.1 million opening weekend for a global performance of more than $702 million to date.”

The CEO also said that there are Avengers-based attractions in the works for some of Disney’s theme parks.
