In case there was any doubt, there will be a sequel to the superhero blockbuster The Avengers.
Disney CEO Bob Iger made the announcement Tuesday, stating during a conference call that a second installment of the men-in-tights epic is in the works.
Though Iger's statement marked the first official announcement of an Avengers sequel, it's hardly surprising -- the Joss Whedon-directed Avengers, which opened in the U.S. May 4, has already amassed a global box-office take in excess of $700 million.
In addition, Disney has three other Marvel superhero films on its slate. Next year, the third Iron Man film arrives in May and a Thor sequel is set for November 2013. The sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger is planned for April in 2014.
Thanks to Chopsaki for the submission.
