Marvel Studios announces release date for “Iron Man 2” and other upcoming films.

Well that didn’t take long. One really strong weekend barely over with and Marvel Studios is already announcing a sequel to Iron Man according to the folks at /Film:

Hot off the $100 million opening of Iron Man (nice job Steve!), the ever powerful Marvel Studios opened its war chest up today, revealing the company’s in-house feature roll out through 2011. Here’s what it looks like…


April 30th: Iron Man 2

June 4th: Thor (directed by Matthew Vaughn)


May 6th: The First Avenger: Captain America

July (day N/A): The Avengers

So, two Avengers films in 2011, eh? Unprecedented. DC’s Justice League is bummed. In addition to the line-up above, Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man is still in the planning stages at the studio, and obviously June brings us The Incredible Hulk, followed by Punisher: War Zone in December.

Let’s hope the rest of them are half as good as Iron Man turned out to be.
