Captain America 2 begins shooting by the end of this year

Jan. 26, 2012by: Alejandro Stepenberg

DumDumDuganIn a recent interview with IMDB Television Blog about his role on Season 3 of JUSTIFIED, Neal McDonough (the bowler-hat-bearing Dum Dum Dugan in CAPTAIN AMERICA) revealed a few details about his place in Marvel's greater post-AVENGERS plan.

Q: I understand you're going to reprise your CAPTAIN AMERICA role.
McDonough: Yeah, they’re planning (to go into production for) for the end of this year, because Marvel does one film at a time. So they’re going to do THOR 2 and as soon as THOR has wrapped, they’ll do CAP 2. Hopefully right after that, we’ll jump into NICK FURY because that’s the one I’m looking forward to more than anything.
Q: Why is that?
McDonough: Because it’ll be me and Sam Jackson. In the real Marvel universe, Dum Dum Dugan is Nick Fury’s right hand man…And I just pray that they have a 1970s setting, because I want to see Sam Jackson with lambchops kicking people’s asses for Marvel universe. It would just be awesome. And to work with Sam would be a treat. We’ve become friendly over the years.
Q: It sounds like you were a fan of the comic beforehand.
McDonough:
Absolutely. I’m very well aware of the Marvel universe, and to be part of it is such a blessing. To go back to London and shoot there for four months, that was just a great year.

So there it is folks! Cap will begin filming another avenging adventure with some old friends by the end of 2012.  To be fair, plans can change an awful lot in the space of a year, but still... to have a bit of hope is always nice.  And speaking of NICK FURY, a quick jaunt over to its IMDB page reveals this to be the planned plot: "A daring amateur boxer from Hells Kitchen is recruited by the Army for some top-secret assignments. He soon is promoted to captain, where he puts together the First Attack Squad, a group of elite soldiers who carry out elite missions."

Great news! The first Captain America was amazing and have no doubt that the sequel(s) will be even better.

For young Sam Jackson, my vote is for Anthony Mackie.

Sam Jackson. Dude ages beautifully. He looks younger now than he did in the 80's.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has noticed this phenomena.
I was recently watching Patriot Games where he had a receding hairline.

I think Robert Downey Jr. should play a young Sam Jackson.

Neal McDonough certainly knows his material. Good job! As for young Sam Jackson, why can't it just be Sam Jackson? Put on some 70s wardrobes and make-up and you got yourself Nick Fury 70s style.

I choose Chiwetel Ejiofor; forget Salt & 2012, look back to Four Brothers or Redbelt and I'm sure you'll agree.

Great News, Can't wait! You think Marvel will play around with the Infinity Formula concept and make it the reason Sam Jackson could appear in different eras? That's a slippery slope because it is a gimmick and Sam will show age as he shoots his 9 Marvel films.

Does Dum Dum Doogan (Neal McDonough) get frozen after WW2 also? How is Doogan going to be in Captain America 2? Captain America was frozen in the end of the first movie, and he woke up in 2011. Is Dum Dum Doogan also going to get frozen and wake up 70 years later? Does anyone know how Marvel is going to do this?

"Different accounts state that Dugan and other members of Fury's Howling Commandos receive the Infinity Formula to explain how they all remain youthful and active despite being all into their 60s and 70s in the modern era. Other stories contract this artificial maintenance of youth as Dugan by merely dyeing his hair and suffering a heart attack."
