Movie bosses are planning a sequel to The Avengers after it smashed U.S. box office records by becoming the first movie to break the $200 million (£125 million) mark in its opening weekend.
The Marvel action epic, with an all-star cast including Robert Downey, Jr., Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth, raked in a massive $207.1 million (£129.44 million) in the first three days after its release on Friday (04May12).
The blockbuster has grossed more than $700 million (£437.5 million) worldwide, and now Disney's CEO Robert Iger reveals a follow-up is in the works.
The Hollywood Reporter claims Iger made the announcement during a conference call with analysts to discuss quarterly earnings on Tuesday (08May12).
Iger is said to have boasted that The Avengers "shattered domestic box office records with a $207.1 million opening weekend for a global performance of more than $702 million to date" and added: "Eventually, (on) a date to be determined, you'll see a sequel to Avengers."
