Captain America 2 will be ‘closely associated with Avengers’Posted 4:16 pm on Monday, May 7th, 2012 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
Now that the Avengers movie has hit theaters nationwide, what’s next for our superheroes? The answer to that are Iron Man 3, Thor 2, and Captain America 2. Marvel Studios’ President of Production Kevin Feige reveals some details on what we can expect the upcoming single movies, especially for Captain America 2 and how Steve Rogers will handle living without his friends and family.
If we do an Avengers 2 it will be after [Iron Man 3, Thor 2, Captain America 2]. They have to grow, they have to change. What they’ve gone through in this movie will impact their state of mind and where they stand in their next movies. Then whatever they go through in those movies is going to affect where we meet them in the next Avengers film. But I think people will be surprised to see, as we go forward – particularly in Iron Man 3 – the notion of how singular the stories can become. Iron Man 3 is a very singular Tony Stark story. As is Thor 2. Cap, who is stuck in the modern day with no friends or family, there will be some revelations of who is still alive from his days in WWII, but SHIELD and Nick Fury are kind of his confidants right now. So of all these movies, Captain America 2 will be most closely associated with Avengers.
Revelations, eh? Maybe we’re going to see the return of Bucky, Caps’ best friend, as the Winder Soldier. I know it’s part of the comic book story, but I find it funny that the people that Captain America knows seem to always have some reason for having long life. How can we bring Bucky back to modern times? Freeze him. What about the Howling Commandos like Dum Dum Dugan? Infinity Formula. Let’s hope that it doesn’t feel too hokey in the film if they do go for that storyline.
