The Disney (DIS -1.7%) Marvel juggernaut looks set to keep rolling right along with the scheduled release of Iron Man 3 next May, marking the first film in the superhero franchise since The Avengers hit $1.5B (and counting) in ticket sales. Thor 2 and Captain America 2 are also slated to be released before The Avengers 2 finally hits screens sometime in 2014. The high probability that the films will generate a lush amount of cash flow is cited by analysts as one of the catalysts to support rosy earnings projections on Disney stretching out for the next two years.
