Specifically, it'll be on Tuesday, March 18th, at 8:00 pm (EST). That's when Marvel Studios will air a one-hour special on ABC, explaining its origins, going behind the scenes of itself, and discussing how awesome it is โ€” none of which is at all important, except that it'll also feature the first look at the Avengers sequel.

Seriously, it's just going to be a hour-long back-patting session, but it will contain new footage from Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy, too, forcing us to sit through 55 minutes of self-congratulations to get to the good stuff. Of course, "first look" could mean anything โ€” actual footage, some behind-the-scenes stuff, interviews with the cast where they talk about how great the movie is while never showing you any proof โ€”but I'm afraid I'm still not willing to take the risk of not watching it, just in case. I'm not proud of this.
