It is the sequel to 2012's The Avengers and the eleventh film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

The sequel was announced in May 2012, after the successful release of The Avengers. Whedon, the director of the first film, was brought back on board in August and a release date was set. By April 2013, Whedon had completed a draft of the script, and casting began in June with the re-signing of Downey.
