With the first Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser out of the way and talked about ad infinitum, the next big question is: what’s next? Well, looks like we’ll be waiting at most half a year:SlashFilm reports (and sound logic dictates) that the next Star Wars trailer will play before Disney’s very large superhero blockbuster sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron. That’s scheduled for release May 1st, 2015, which also happens to be the weekend before May 4th — aka Star Wars Day. (“May the Fourth / Force Be With You.” Get it?)
That all seems obvious enough, but what about the 165 or so days before Marvel’s next film? There are two big Disney films in between (Into the Woodson Christmas Day and Cinderella on March 13th), but those don’t necessarily seem as obvious of a tie-in as, say, the Super Bowl. Plus Abrams and company have been (mostly) good about keeping the excitement going online through various teasers. We probably won’t get any major reveals, however — by our count, there are about six newcomers and all the returning players whose faces we’ve yet see — until some tentpole event.
