The Avengers (2012) - Captain America (Chris Evans)

The Avengers poster - Australia - Captain AmericaWe’ve still got The Avengers, Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 yet to come, but Walt Disney Studios has announced that the sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger will be released to cinemas on 4 April 2014.

With The Avengers being a direct follow-up to the events at the end of the first Captain America film, and Steve Rogers being a focus of the team-up film, the Captain America sequel will presumably pick up the adventures of Steve Rogers where The Avengers leaves him, the events of Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 notwithstanding.

From previous information we’ve seen from writers Scott McFeely and Chris Markus, we also know that the sequel will be “primarily set in the modern day”.

These projects, as previously announced, will be part of the road to The Avengers 2. In addition to the sequels, we might also see some of the more off-the-wall characters such as Ant-Man, Inhumans and Guardians of the Galaxy.
