'Captain America' Sequel Slated For April 2014 Release

Disney and Marvel have announced that the sequel to 'Captain America: The First Avenger' will be released on April 4, 2014.

The studio has also confirmed that the film will be set in present day, rather than find a way to return to World War II setting that the hero inhabited for most of the first film.

The second installment will instead pick-up where the 'The Avengers' leaves off, as Steve Rogers continues his affiliation with Nick Fury and SHIELD and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world.

However, we may still see a few scenes set in the '40s in the form of flashbacks.

Following the film's release last year screenwriters Chris Markus and Stephen McFeely said: "We certainly want at least a portion of the '40's, I thinků The span of the movie is about two or three years, and there's a few times in the film where you jump four months ahead, you jump six months ahead."

"So we did that with the intention of saying, 'Okay, there are certainly unseen adventures that Captain America went on in that period that if we want to, we can go back and explore later.'"

"The Captain America that most people know is really from kind of the reboot, when Stan Lee brought him back in '63 and '64, frozen from a block of ice. So his biggest personality trait is that he's this man out of time, and for us, we didn't have the opportunity to explore that."

The first movie starring Chris Evans as the patriotic fighter took in $368 million at the worldwide box office.

The tentative release date of April 2014 will put roughly a year after the third 'Ironman 3' (May 2013) and a 'Thor' sequel (November 2013).
