Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Pictures have announced a release date for a sequel to last summer’s blockbuster ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’: April 4th 2014.
“The second installment will pick-up where the highly anticipated ‘Marvel’s Avengers Assemble 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.”
A director has yet to be confirmed, but George Nolfi (‘The Adjustment Bureau’), F. Gary Gray (‘The Italian Job’) and Anthony and Joseph Russo (‘You, Me and Dupree’) are all rumoured to be under consideration for the director’s chair.
Along with the short press release, Marvel released a new image of Chris Evans as the patriotic fighter in the upcoming superhero epic ‘Marvel’s Avengers Assemble,’ which will be released in Irish cinemas in 3D on April 26th, 2012.
