Of all the Marvel Studio Phase 2 movies, you will notice that Iron Man 3 is the only numbered sequel.
Seems "The Avengers 2" will not be numbered as well as Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige tells the Collider that he likes the idea of a subtitle better.
I would say that if you look at the trend of our upcoming movies, Iron Man 3 is the only one that has a number. I like Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi instead of Star Wars 2, Star Wars 3.
The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes? The Avengers Assemble?
Feige also said that the character sequences by Joss Whedon in The Avengers 2 will top the first movie.
We’ve been consistent in talking about this leading up to The Avengers: what is most interesting to us and why we hired Joss Whedon in the first place is the interaction between the characters. That’s more fun to us than the massive action scenes that are gonna have to come with it that we’re gonna have to figure out, and we’re gonna have to be clever and raise the bar, but already the scenes that Joss has of just the characters sitting around and interacting are hilarious and are awesome and are moving and a notch or two above the first movie, and to me that’s where you wanna top yourself.
The Avengers 2 assembles May 1, 2015 with Iron Man 3 on May 3, 2013, Thor: The Dark World on November 8, 2013, Captain America: Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014, the Guardians of the Galaxy movie on August 1, 2014 and Ant-Man on November 6, 2015..
