Re: The Avengers 2! The Official News and Speculation Thread - Part 1
I actually think that waiting a tad longer would indeed be the best option. After the high of the first movie, I have an insatiable appetite for part 2, so I'm glad it's arriving as soon as 2015 with all the solo sequels in-between (with GOTG as a kick-ass bonus).
Once TA2 is all said and done, I think I'll be much more interested in seeing newer properties develop and seeing the MCU really expand. Ant-Man coming out later that year is just the thing I'll need to get me started. I don't know how other people feel, but I think holding the third chapter out an extra year or two will only build more great anticipation. Like the new characters (Ant-Man, Dr. Strange, etc) will be refreshing and keep the MCU from feeling like a rinse-and-repeat cycle of heroes, then The Avengers 3 will show up after the long wait to a much more satisfying feeling of "they're back!"
It's unlikely this'll happen, but Feige has pleasantly surprised me before.
