Fanboys and fangirls will be pleased to know that Joss Whedon has finished the first outline for the his highly anticipated sequel, "The Avengers 2". The superhero packed, star-studded sequel hits AMC Theatres on May 1st 2015. While we don't have much information about the outline yet, we take this confirmation as a solid step in the right direction, which will hopefully put the rumors circulating around the film to rest soon.

Whedon has joined Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige in overseeing Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In addition to the "The Avengers 2" and the "S.H.I.E.L.D." TV show, Phase Two includes such films as "Iron Man 3" which releases in AMC Theatres in May 2013, "Thor: The Dark World" in November 2013 and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" on April 4, 2014.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Whedon sheds some light on a personal connection he feels with the Hulk character, portrayed by Mark Ruffalo in the "The Avengers":

"What was most astonishing to me about making that movie was how personal it was," he says. "I literally had the I’m-always-angry revelation during production. I had this certain amount of back-burner simmer of rage that I was completely aware of, but apparently I wrote it for Bruce Banner, going (to myself): ‘I think this is what a guy like this might go through!’ Interesting! What guy, Joss? ‘I don’t know! Some guy. I can’t think of anyone in particular, or why this is coming to me…’ Really, Joss? Really?"

We'll keep you posted as more exciting details emerge.

"The Avengers 2" comes crashing to an AMC Theatres near you on May 1st 2015.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.
