LOS ANGELES: The sequel to Seth MacFarlane’s comedy hit Ted is set to battle with Batman, Superman and the Avengers in the increasingly crowded summer of 2015. Producers Universal have announced that the film will open in the US on June 26 of that year. That puts it slap bang in the middle of a summer which will also see a string of high-profile blockbusters hitting the screen within a few weeks of each other. Ted 2 currently has the June 26 weekend all to itself, but will face competition from sequels to Terminator and Independence Day the following week.–MT
