Two months after confirming that the Captain America sequel would be happening within the modern timeline of Marvel Studio's current movie storyline arc, screenwriter Stephen McFeely discussed a bit more about the subject to Screen Junkies. In the chat about where the character will wind up in post-The Avengers (set for next May) feature film realm, the website asked whether there's room in the story as to whether any WWII activities will occur with Chris Evans' character or whether it will be strictly in the present day.

For his part, the writer McFeely left the door open to both.

Q: We know he comes into modern day for The Avengers, but is there room to go back to WWII?

SM: Well, our hope is that there is room and we’re negotiating how to do that now. The story will likely be in the present day. We’re experimenting with flashback elements for more period World War II stuff. I can’t say much more than that but we made it baggy enough to refer to more stories in the past.

Q: So you left gaps in Captain America 1 where you can always say something else was going on back then?

SM: Absolutely. He had more adventures than just the one you’re going to see in the movie.

The website also asked whether they had their villain pinned down for the Captain America sequel but with the development this early on, the writer was obviously not ready to reveal that yet to the press. The writer also confirms that his team and Marvel are meeting at the moment to discuss possible plot concepts. You can read the full interview here.

Captain America: The First Avenger will hit theaters July 22, 2011.

The Avengers will invade theaters May 4, 2012.

Chances are we'll see flashbacks to World War II. Sounds good.

The thing that really makes me sad is that Fox has the rights to Wolverine/Logan and that he can never appear in ANY WWII scene with the Cap as he did in the comics.  Cap and Wolvie kicked Nazi ass together!  :(

Also, Wolverine would be an awesome addition for the hopefully obvoious Avengers sequel.  He made a good Avengers team member.

And Spidey too.... :(

Yeah Axia777, totally agree about Logan, at least in flashbacks, but there are so many other of Caps allies that Marvel can make use of. I'd like to see  some of the Invaders. Submariner or Toro would be awesome for the flashbacks. In the present I wouldn't mind seeing Falcon.

Hmm, I wonder if Dum Dum Dugan will make it to the present like in the comics or would be that too much to explain how he is still alive and kicking ass.

Yeah I could see flashbacks with Wolverine a la the origins movie but Fox won't let that happen. But what I want to know is if Bucky will become the Winter Soilder (or at least head in that direction) in the next movie, or will he get the Falcon as a partner in it?

BTW will they have Sgt Fury and his Howling Commandos in the movie? If they do will it be Samuel L playing him or wil it be his "dad"?

Can someone point me in the direction where the early reviews came out for this please?

violator14 6/22/2011 11:49:58 AM

and ya F U Fox! It's kinda sad that most of the rest of the world probably doesn't even know that Wolverine and the other Xmen characters are in the same universe as the Avengers which would be pretty cool if i found that out as a non-comic-fan. And they might NEVER know !!! =(

The possibilities of Magneto owning Ironman on screen, or the classic Wolverine vs. Hulk battle will never happen if Fox continues to keep their grimy hands on the properties. >=(

As far as Logan goes, even a cameo like in First Class would be sweet.  That was the best part of that movie.  As for villains in the sequel, I'm betting on some kind of Winter Soldier/Hydra scenario and wouildn't rule out a second appearace by the Red Skull. What else are they going to do?  Baron Zemo's lavender mask and ermine collar are a little too fabulous if you get my drift.  I suppose they could use that fat hairless Daniel Benzali guy to play Strucker. A big pizza face make-up job and he'd be ready to rock.

All sounds excellent. So many of Cap's villains have roots in the past. I'm curious how far they're going to go as far as having guys re-appear in the present. What will they do with Bucky or will he just age naturalkly ala Ultimates.

I can see Cap having flashback nightmares about Bucky dying if they go that route and then branching into Wintewr Soldier. Maybe Winter Soldier will be a descendant of Bucky still blaming Cap for his death. Just so many options we can be here all day talking about it. The Wolverine stuff I don't even really care about, it ain't happening.

violator, there ain't no early reviews out just whispers of people's impressions. The first screenings you know is just probably a select group. But word, and take that with as many grains of salt as you want, has been positive and repeated by several sources.
