“Avengers” and “Iron Man 3” Included in Marvel/Paramount Deal

"Thor," which Kenneth Branagh has been confirmed to direct. It centers on the hammer-wielding Norse god and is scheduled for release on July 16th, 2010.

Slated also is "Iron Man 2," which will now be released on May 7th, 2010, and brings back Robert Downey Jr as billionaire Tony Stark, as well as co-stars Terrence Howard and Gwyneth Paltrow. A third "Iron Man" is also in the works.

Marvel also scheduled "The First Avenger: Captain America" for May 6th, 2011 and "The Avengers" for July 15th, 2011.

The ability to negotiate more favorable financial terms for itself comes after Marvel successfully launched its film division this year with the release of "Iron Man" and "The Incredible Hulk," through Universal; the pics went on to earn a combined $824 million worldwide this summer.
