The CEO says that the follow-up will come on the heels of previously-announced sequels to "Iron Man," "Thor" and "Captain America."

Iger boasted that Avengers "shattered domestic box-office records with a $207.1 million opening weekend for a global performance of more than $702 million to date."
The CEO also said that there are Avengers-based attractions in the works for some of Disney’s theme parks.
