The movie just needs to be awesome. It doesn't matter when it's released. The fact that the first movie made 1.5 billion dollars is the REASON it's going to be successful.
If you're worried about releasing it outside of the early May tent pole, keep in mind that the mid-July weekend
is traditionally a summer tent pole as well. Without Harry Potter and probably no Nolan movie in 2015, it's wide open for Avengers 2 to clean house.
