And if May 2015 seems like eons away, don't go all evil Loki on us. Because you'll have plenty of super-romps to hold you over until then, including Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier as well as Guardians of the Galaxy in 2014.
And the 2015 release date officially pits Avengers 2 against what's speculated to be the release date for the long-awaited Justice League ensemble. Get ready for one heck of a super summer, folks!
