I think it might be part of Marvel's plan. My understanding is that they've had the whole expanded universe films planned out in terms of releases for years. From what I read a year or two ago, it's been planned for some time that Guardians and Avengers will have some massive crossover mashup, and as some of the films drop hints or set up plot points for others, I guess they have to stick to the order. There's a Wikipedia page that lists some of the other films due over the next couple of years: Marvel Cinematic Universe - WikipediaAnyone knows why they need 3 years to give us the 2nd ? Is this because of the budget?
