Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
“We’re very excited about our summer releases, ‘Iron Man’ and ‘The Incredible Hulk,’ and look forward to resuming work with writers on our future projects including ‘Captain America,’ ‘Thor,’ ‘Ant-Man,’ and ‘The Avengers,’” said Marvel Studios Chairman David Maisel.

Cool. Long term project super hero movie I am MOST looking forward to other than ‘The Watchmen’ (which is already in production) and ‘Justice League’ (which just got delayed due to the writer’s strike) is an ‘Avengers’ movie.
