Captain America 2 release date is announced! Plus, a new image!

Apr. 5, 2012by: Paul Shirey

Mark your calenders fanboys/girls, for CAPTAIN AMERICA 2 is set to toss his shield again on April 4, 2014, almost two years to the date. 

Here's the official announcement:

The Walt Disney Studios has announced a release date for Marvel Studios’ sequel to the blockbuster Captain America: The First Avenger on April 4, 2014.  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.

And here's the new pic (from THE AVENGERS):

I'm a big fan of Cap, so this is great news for me.  I know some people are less enthused about the character, but perhaps they will be swayed by THE AVENGERS.  Picking up right after that film is a good way to go and keeping Cap rooted with S.H.I.E.L.D. is consistent with his comic roots.  I'm hoping we get some flashback action tied in with a modern day story.  Perhaps we'll see Cap's current flame Agent Sharon Carter (the granddaughter of Peggy) and the Winter Soldier.  Ah, let the speculation begin...

IRON MAN 3 debuts on May 3, 2013 and THOR 2 hits on November 15, 2013, followed by Cap 2, so once again we have a nice three-course Marvel dinner on the way.
Extra Tidbit: What villain would you like to see in Cap 2? I'm pullin' for Crossbones myself.

Would that be horribly corny if they cast Atwell as Sharon Carter? Then Cap can get all uncomfortable when she wears shape-clinging, cleavage-enhancing tops that her grandmother wouldn't dare to have worn?

I think some of the best scenes in Captain America came from Steve Rogers' awkwardness, even with his stature, especially around women, so I think your idea would work. Any excuse to show off Hayley Atwell!s assets seems good to me!

April the new Summer kickoff?

I think in a few years April will be the new Summer Blockbuster kick-off month. If you look back Fast and Furious, Fast Five and Clash of the Titans have all benefited big from April release dates and this year even March with Hunger Games and Wrath of the Titans and the sadly hopeful John Carter.

I'm totally looking forward to some winter solider action, I like who they picked to play Bucky so if they can get him back for that it would be pretty awesome!

That's great news!

As for the tidbit: While Crossbones would be cool, he couldn't be the "main" bad guy. More like the muscles...for Baron Zemo perhaps!
I really wouldn't mind some more Hydra and/or A.I.M. either (if you have A.I.M. you gotta have M.O.D.O.K. though and I'm not sure the big giant head would translate well to live action)

Sharon

If I'm not mistaken, Sharon is Peggy's niece. (Though she was originally her sister, until time kept on chugging along outside the comics. I wouldn't be surprised if she gets revamped to grandniece in the near future.)

Too far away for me

Can't wait for the onslaught of comic book movies swarming the theaters. Cap is a great character. Loved first avenger and looking forward to part 2. Game on BITCHES!

2005 to 2015 are going to do for superheroes what the 50s and 60s did for Sci Fi.

Namely: run it into the ground :p
