Bob Iger

Let’s all step back from Deadline Wherever‘s splashy headline “Disney Announces ‘Avengers 2′ In Development” to properly contextualize just what it is that Disney CEO Bob Iger has announced today. While Deadline’s story reads (for now, at least), “Disney CEO Bob Iger just announced that the company is developing a sequel” to box office smash The Avengers, that information comes without an official announcement from Disney or credit to the original source. So, yes, let’s take a moment. ComingSoon has posted the real meat of the story, an interview that Iger did today with CNBC. While you can watch that interview for yourself, CS has lifted out the relevant quotes from Iger: “The Avengers isn’t just a film. It’s a franchise from our perspective. Obviously, it was helped a lot by the success of the Iron Man movies and of Thor and Captain America. From The Avengers we get a chance to make Thor 2 and Captain America 2 and Iron Man 3 and hopefully another Avengers movie. So this one film that is immensely successful…is going to get a number of other films and franchises.”



If you didn’t have a chance to keep up with all of this Disney buying Marvel business, don’t worry, as we’ve got you covered…
