There’s no stopping this Avengers movie now! News came out this week that Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle and Jon Favreau have added The Avengers to their calendars in addition to Iron Man 2.
Here’s some additional clarification points:
-Downey’s deal was for four movies, meaning that he’ll be wearing the armor in another film after the sequel and Avengers are complete.
-Favreau is directing Iron Man 2 and will executive produce for Avengers.
-Cheadle will play James Rhodes in the sequel, Avengers and other sequels. I’m still confused as to why Terrence Howard was relieved of his duties in this role. I thought he was really good in the first film.
-Release dates are May 7, 2010 for Iron Man 2 and July 15, 2011, for Avengers.
