Disney Names the Date For ‘Captain America 2′

After saving the world twice in two years in Captain America: The First Avenger and this summer’s The Avengers, it looks like Captain America is going to get to take a year off. Disney has just announced the release date of Captain America 2, the third outing for Chris Evans as the star-spangled super soldier, but fans of the hero are going to have to wait until 2014 to watch as he “continues his affiliation with Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world,” according to a Disney press release.After this summer’s Marvel’s The Avengers, Cap will have until April 4, 2014 to rest up, clean his indestructible shield and get used to this modern world before getting into action again, confirming rumors that the movie could be in production as early as the end of this year (Neal McDonough, who played Dum Dum Dugan in the first installment, had leaked that information to reporters earlier this year). That leaves Marvel little time to find a director to replace Joe Johnson, who headed up the first in the series; rumored to be in the running are The Adjustment Bureau‘s George Nolfi and the Community producer-director team of Anthony and Joe Russo. Maybe there’s hope for some kind of superhero role for Donald Glover after all…

Marvel’s The Avengers is released May 4, with the Marvel movie universe continuing with Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 both set for release in 2013.
