Not long after the Marvel sensation Captain America hit theaters, it was announced that a sequel was in the works. Captain America 2 has been in development since mid-2011, with Chris Evans returning as the titular hero. Now, the movie has a release date: April 4, 2014.
Although there is still a ways to go before Captain America 2 takes real form, the Walt Disney Studios' announcement of the release date (along with the below image of Cap car-squatting amid a barrage of danger — American danger) makes the thrilling sequel seem none too far out of reach.
As opposed to Captain America, which took place in the 1940s, Captain America 2 will carry out in present day, taking place after the events of the upcoming The Avengers and continuing Steve Rogers difficult integration into modern society.
