Captain America Will Officially Sling his Shield Again in 2014


Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) Movie Mondo Poster by Olly MossThe Walt Disney Studios has made it official: the sequel to Marvel Studios’ “Captain America: The First Avenger” (let’s just go with “Captain America 2″ for now) has been scheduled for a April 4, 2014 release date. Not only that, but the studio was kind enough to release a new image of Cap from “The Avengers” (below), and offered up this big of plot for the sequel:

The second installment will pick-up where the highly anticipated Marvel’s The Avengers (May 4, 2012) leaves off, as Steve Rogers continues his affiliation with Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world.

So yes, there will be no flashing back to WWII for our thawed out super soldier, and instead “Captain America 2″ will continue Steve Rogers’ adventures in the modern era, as he continues his “affiliation” with Fury and the SHIELD superspy boys and girls.

Chris Evans, of course, will return as Captain America, though he’ll be working with a new director the second time ’round.

“The Avengers”, meanwhile, assembles this May 4th. Yes, May 4th. That’s just a month away. Yikes.

    I just hope the change the costume/hat for the sequel…
    And that my local theatre decides if it’s doing a midnight release already so I can book off work if necessary!

    While I’m sure that while the main plot will involve Rogers trying to adapt to his new surroundings and being the newest recruit to S.H.I.E.L.D. they will more than likely have some flashbacks to WWII era as well. I really hope to see modern day era helmed by Baron Von Strucker or Baron Zemo, A.I.M. with Modok and a set up for Bucky to return as The WInter Soldier!
