It's been long expected, but we now have confirmation that Captain America 2 is a go! With less than a month to go before the release of The Avengers, Marvel and Walt Disney have now confirmed a sequel to last year's Captain America The First Avenger.
We even have a release date of April 4, 2014. The first film opened in July last year and went on to gross $366 M worldwide. It has been long expected that a sequel would take up one of two release dates that Marvel had carved out for 2014, but until now had not revealed which films would be taking those spots. It's a bit of a surprise for such a high profile movie to take on a date outside the big Summer Movie season which traditionally begins in early May. The recent success of The Hunger Games could have had some influence on the studio's decision.
No casting news yet, but we do know Chris Evans will reprise his role as Steve Rogers in the film. There was some talk last year that the film may return to the World War 2 era of the first film, but Marvel has confirmed that the film will take place after the events of The Avengers and continue the story of Captain America in the modern world working with Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D.
The announcement included a new look at Captain America in The Avengers featuring him kneeling on a car what looks like shortly after or possibly even in the midst of the attack on New York by Loki's Army.
No word yet on who will be taking over directing duties for the sequel. So are you excited to see Captain America again on the big screen in a solo film? Are you glad they are keeping with the modern plot or would you like to see him return to his World War 2 roots.
