Just as the first Thor movie led directly to the events in The Avengers, it looks like for the next phase, Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be the film that leads Marvel directly into the events of Avengers 2, or so say the screenwriters. What do they know?
The next Captain America movie will be called ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier;, meaning obviously, that the character of The Winter Soldier will feature prominently in the film. But who is the Winter Soldier? Before Captain America 2 hits next summer, watch the video below so you can come off like a walking comic book encyclopedia, like you knew that shit all along.
While there isn’t a whole lot of news regarding Captain America 2 right now, other than the subtitle ‘Winter Soldier’, meaning that Winter Soldier will of course play a big role. More casting and character news however, with Anthony Mackie (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) cast as the superhero Falcon.
At San Diego Comic Con, Marvel unveiled the official names (As in Thor 2 is now Thor: The Dark World) for its next five films, as well as release dates for three of them and a bonus piece of concept art for Guardians of the Galaxy.
For Captain America 2, there will be a pair of directors— brothers Joe and Anthony Russo, who directed ‘You, Me and Dupree’ as well as having worked on ABC’s Happy Endings and NBC’s Community.
With The Avengers hitting theaters next month, Disney and Marvel announced a solid release date for a sequel to Captain America. Captain America 2 will hit theaters April 14, 2014 and will be set in present day, continuing the story from The Avengers.
