Excited about the upcoming sequel to Joss Whedon's The Avengers? Better not hold your breath, because the official release date has been set, and lets just say - it's in a while. As in, 2015. May 1, 2015, to be exact - so mark the date if you feel like flipping through over thirty calendar pages on your phone or whatever.

MTV has been speculating about this being the official release date since last week, but the news was officially announced by Hollywood insider Jeff Sneider though his Twitter today. Additionally, it has been confirmed that Whedon will return to write and direct the sequel.
